8. | UN Regulation No. 16 (Safety-belts)

18. The expert from CLEPA introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2019/6 to clarify which modification of the vehicle type or the safety-belt or restraint system shall be notified to the Type Approval Authority. GRSP agreed to combine ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2019/6 with ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2018/25 to extend the requirements for the safety-belt reminder installation not only to the driver’s seat (see ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/64, para. 15). GRSP finally agreed with both proposals, neither amended, and requested the secretariat to submit ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2019/6 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2018/25 as Supplement 12 to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 16 and as Supplement 5 to the 07 series of amendments, for consideration and vote at the November 2019 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1.

8. | UN Regulation No. 16 (Safety-belts)

15. The expert from the Netherlands introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2018/25 to correct the type approval communication to extend the requirements for the safety-belt reminder installation not only to the driver’s seat. Since, the proposed amendment would entail broader technical aspects, GRSP agreed to incorporate it in a further proposal of amendments to UN Regulation No. 16. Finally, GRSP agreed to resume discussion on this subject at its May 2019 session.
