Discussions and Outcomes

20. The expert of IWG WGWT presented their proposals for the moulded standard reference test tyre and wet grip of C2, C3, and some clusters of C1 tyres in a worn state (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRBP/2022/22, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRBP/2022/23, GRBP-76-02 and GRBP-76-05). The expert from ETRTO introduced additional amendments (GRBP-76-24-Rev.1, GRBP-76-33-Rev.1 and GRBP-76-34).

21. GRBP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRBP/2022/22, as amended by GRBP-76-05 and GRBP-76-34, subject to the removal of the square brackets, and requested the secretariat to submit it for consideration and vote at the March 2023 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 117.

22. GRBP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRBP/2022/23, as amended by GRBP-76-02, GRBP-76-33-Rev.1, and GRBP-76-24-Rev.1, and requested the secretariat to submit it for consideration and vote at the March 2023 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as part of the draft new 04 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 117.

75th GRBP session (8-11 Feb 2022)

21. GRBP recalled that, at the previous session, it had adopted draft amendments on the procedure and thresholds on wet grip performance for C1 tyres in worn state which was subsequently submitted to WP.29 as draft 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 117 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2021/12). To complement the document, the expert from IWG WGWT tabled further amendments (GRBP-75-25-Rev.1). GRBP adopted this proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it for consideration and vote at the June 2022 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as part of a new 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 117. The expert from IWG WGWT also presented a concept proposal for addressing wet grip requirements for C2 and C3 tyres in worn state (GRBP-75-26-Rev.1).

22. GRBP agreed to request WP.29 and AC.1 to postpone to their June 2022 sessions consideration of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2021/12, in order to combine it into a consolidated proposal with the adopted amendments mentioned in the previous paragraph.
