Updated proposal to exempt Zone I from opaque obscuration requirements of GTR 6 under certain conditions.
22. The expert from the Republic of Korea presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/33 as amended by GRSG-117-43 and GRSG-117-49 on the need to exempt in Zone I the possible opaque obscuration which is defined in paragraph 18.104.22.168.4. of the annexes on installing laminated-glass panes. The expert from Germany clarified that there was no real difference between UN GTR No.6 and UN Regulation No.43 as the UN GTR would provide for two options while the UN Regulation would use only one of the options which was in accordance with the agreements.
23. GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/33 as amended by GRSG-117-49 and requested the secretariat to submit it to AC.3 as draft amendment to UN GTR No. 6 for consideration at its March 2020 sessions. The expert from the Republic of Korea was invited to provide the secretariat with a technical report that would accompany the proposal within the deadline for the 180th WP.29 session (9 December 2019).
24. The expert from OICA questioned whether the amendments to UN GTR No. 6 (see paras 20 and 22 above) would require for parallel amendments to UN Regulation No. 43. Upon request by the Chair, the expert from OICA agreed to prepare a related proposal for the next session.
25. GRSG agreed to resume discussions on amendments to UN Regulation No. 43 based on a proposal to be submitted by OICA at its next session.
