Proposal to introduce objective criteria for evaluating whether a door remains latched following the pole impact test. Under UN R135, rear doors on the impacted side of the vehicle not directly struck by the pole may nonetheless be subjected to heavy loads and therefore need to be assessed. This proposal corresponds to a similar clarification already introduced into UN R95 on side impacts.
39. The expert from France introduced GRSP-64-14, clarifying that rear doors on the impacted side which were not directly struck by the pole, might be subjected to heavy loads. He therefore proposed a similar amendment already adopted for UN Regulation No. 95. The expert from OICA requested a study reservation. Finally, GRSP agreed to resume discussion at its May 2019 session and requested the secretariat to distribute GRSP-64-14 with an official symbol.
