30. On behalf of SIG, the expert from OICA introduced a proposal for a new series of amendments which clarifies the definitions of “switching” and “activation” and introduces the mandatory use of Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2019/29, GRE-82-06 and GRE-82-11). The experts from EC and OICA suggested modified transitional provisions (GRE-82-23, GRE-82-34 and GRE-82-44-Rev.1). Finally, GRE adopted the proposal, as amended by Annex IV, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2020 sessions as draft 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48.

Summary

Proposal from a GRE Special Interest Group on the 07 series of amendments to UN R48 to clarify the definitions of “switching” and “activation” and to introduce the mandatory use of Emergency Stop Signal (ESS) to align UN R48 with the General Safety Regulation of the European Union.
