Download in .pdf format Download in .docx format

Proposal to introduce a generic drawing to improve interpretation of the regulation, especially with regard to contactable parts (sphere protocol). The proposal aims to clarify how to deal with potentially “exempted” parts and which requirements apply to which part of the windscreen wiper. Given the implications for approvals, the proposal is presented as a new series of amendments with transitional provisions starting 24 months after entry into force.

13. The expert from France introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/34 that clarifies the requirements on windscreen wipers with a simple generic drawing of the concerned areas. Following detailed technical discussions and adjustment of language used and transitional provisions, GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/34 as amended by GRSG-117-44-Rev.1. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 5 to the 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 26 for consideration at their March 2020 sessions.
