Proposal from the IWVTA informal group to extract provisions from UN R116 into a new UN Regulation concerning the approval of immobilizers and the approval of a vehicle with regard to its immobilizer.
46. The expert from OICA informed GRSG about his decision to resign from his function as GRSG Ambassador to IWG on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA), due to increased workload. He wondered if the function was still needed as UN Regulation No. 0 on IWVTA had entered recently into force. He reported on the status of documentation on the splitting of UN Regulation No. 116 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24/Rev.1 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/25) and invited all experts to send him their comments. He offered to prepare a set of final documents after the discussions at a further meeting in conjunction with the next GRSG session with the aim to adopt those documents at the 117th GRSG session. GRSG endorsed the proposed road map and agreed to keep the documents on the agenda as reference documents. The Chair thanked Mr. O. Fontaine for his commitment as GRSG Ambassador on IWVTA and his contributions in this function.
