32. The expert from UK, Co-Chair of the IWG on CS/OTA, introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRVA/2020/29, proposing guidance on how to interpret UN Regulation No. [156] (Software Updates and Software Updates Management Systems). He answered to the question raised by the expert from Spain on the reference to ISO 9001 in the document, which is a very general quality standard.

33. The expert from CITA introduced GRVA-07-44, aimed at clarifying the interpretation of para. GRVA did not support the proposal as it was agreed that the interpretation document should not indirectly introduce additional requirements to the Regulation. GRVA offered the expert of CITA to further discuss the idea proposed in the document at the IWG level.

34. GRVA endorsed ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRVA/2020/29 as amended by GRVA-07-50 (see Annex IV of the session report) and recommended its adoption by WP.29 at its November 2020 session. (GRVA noted the submission by the IWG of GRVA-07-51, which is content-wise identical with GRVA-07-50 but with a different format).
