Meeting Session(s)

45. The expert from OICA presented GRSG-116-40-Rev.1 on the historical highlights and progress of the splitting of UN Regulation No. 116 (GRSG-116-09-Rev.1). She reported on the status of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/23, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/24/ Rev.1, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2017/25 and its Corr.1, as reflected in GRSG-116-06-Rev.1, GRSG-116-07 and GRSG-116-08. She invited all interested experts to send her their final comments not later than by the end of May 2019 to allow her to set up a TF to review the proposals and to prepare, in due time, the final versions of the draft official documents for submission to the secretariat. She added that the provisions of Annex 5 on ElectroMagnetic Compatibility (EMC) should be scrutinized by the Working Party on Lighting and Light-Signalling (GRE), particularly by its TF on EMC.

46. GRSG endorsed the request. The Chair announced that he would inform the GRE Chair in the near future, and WP.29 at its June 2019 session. GRSG agreed to resume discussions at its next session based on official documents.


Proposal for a new regulation on uniform provisions concerning the approval of vehicle alarm systems and approval of a vehicle with regard to its vehicle alarm system. The regulation would extract provisions from UN R116 in order to facilitate the integration of UN R116 into the UN R0 international whole vehicle type approval system.
