7. Following detailed technical discussions, including comments from experts from, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, United States of America, the European Commission, the AAPC and OICA, GRSG requested the secretariat to issue a consolidated version of amendments to document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2020/100, proposal for Guidance on Event Data Recorder (EDR) Performance Elements Appropriate for Adoption in 1958 and 1998 Agreements Resolutions or Regulations, based on informal documents GRSG-120-01 and GRSG-120-05, as an official document with the unsolved elements between square brackets for consideration at the March 2021 WP.29 session.

8. GRSG adopted amendments to document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2020/123, proposal for a new UN Regulation on Event Data Recorder, based on informal documents GRSG-120-02 and GRSG-120-05 and requested the secretariat to submit it as official document to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2021 sessions.

9. Following detailed technical discussions, including comments from experts from, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the European Commission and OICA, GRSG adopted a proposal for 01 series of amendments to the new UN Regulation on Event Data Recorder, based on informal documents GRSG-120-03 and GRSG-120-05 with square brackets removed related to the additional data elements (pages 22 and 23 of document GRSG-120-03) and requested the secretariat to submit it as official document to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2021 sessions.
