Report on CLEPA assessments of the proposed GTR 7 Phase 2 BioRID criteria.
5. In the same time, the expert from Japan introduced the eighth status report of the Informal Working Group (IWG) on Head Restraints. The expert from OICA suggested that both UN GTR No. 7 and UN Regulation No. 17 be kept aligned. However, he added that if, at this time, it was difficult to maintain alignment, he urged GRSP to at least amend UN Regulation No. 17 to include the outcome of the IWG work. The expert from CLEPA introduced GRSP-64-44, expressing concerns on repeatability and reproducibility of BioRID test results and suggesting permissible variations to the injury criteria. GRSP noted that a proposal for amendments to Mutual Resolution No. 1 (M.R.1), which incorporated drawings and specifications of the BioRID dummy would possibly be presented at the May 2019 session of GRSP.
