Proposal to remove references to European radio frequency standards (paragraphs 6.2.3., 7.2.3. and 8.2.2.). Telecommunications devices must meet requirements specific to local markets. Therefore, the references to standards specific to European markets (but not other markets) fall outside the purview of UN Regulations.
47. The expert from OICA presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/14 on the removal of references to the European standards on frequencies in UN Regulation No. 116. GRSG adopted the document as amended below and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 6 to UN Regulation No. 116 for consideration at their March 2019 sessions.
New paragraph 1.9., replace “radio transmission” by “radio transmission frequencies”.
41. The expert from OICA presented GRSG-114-30 on the removal of references to the European standards on frequencies in UN Regulation No. 116, as the specifications on radio transmission were not yet harmonized and still regulated nationally or regionally. The expert from the United Kingdom recommended a broader consideration of radio transmissions and interconnectivity at the level of WP.29. GRSG noted that the IWG on Intelligent Transport System / Automated Driving was currently considering, on a horizontal level, issues such as vehicle interconnectivity, cyber security and “over-the-air” updates. GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session and invited the secretariat to circulate GRSG-114-30 with an official symbol.
