12. Referring to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2018/17, the expert from France introduced GRSG-115-08 that clarifies the requirements on windscreen wipers with a simple generic drawing of the areas concerned. The expert from EC supported the proposal. The expert from CLEPA was of the opinion that the clarification by France imposed more stringent requirements particularly for the wiper holder and would require a justification for evolving costs (GRSG-115-32). The expert from OICA endorsed the position of CLEPA. He suggested inserting transitional provisions and adopting the proposal as a new series amendments to UN Regulation No. 26. The Chair invited the experts from France and OICA to submit, in due time, a revised proposal including transitional provisions, for consideration at the next GRSG session on the basis of an official document.
