35. The expert from VRU-Proxi introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/25 containing two proposals: (i) clarification of test procedures allowing non-random selection of parameter combinations and (ii) protrusion requirements for BSIS external elements. He further introduced GRSG-117-23 on clarification of elements to be considered for the determination of the vehicle front right corner.

36. Following detailed technical discussions and adjustment of language used (GRSG-117-24-Rev.1), GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/25 and GRSG-117-23 as reproduced in Annex II to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 1 to UN Regulation No. 151 for consideration at their March 2020 sessions.
