Revised proposal to allow an alternative positioning and spacing of escape hatches on buses of Classes A and B to address limitations for shorter vehicles.
8. The expert from OICA presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/30 on the position of escape hatches on M2 buses of Classes A and B in the transition from the 05 and 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 107. Following clarification on the positioning of escape hatches in the vehicles concerned and adjustment of language used (GRSG-117-54), GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/30 as amended and reproduced in Annex II to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 7 to the 06 series of amendments, Supplement 2 to the 07 series of amendments and Supplement 2 to the 08 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 107 for consideration at their March 2020 sessions.
