13. The expert from the United States, Chair of the informal working group on Electric Vehicle Safety (EVS) introduced the report of the second meeting of the group held on October 23-25, 2012 in Bonn, Germany. He explained that the informal working group had begun considering a first proposal of a UN GTR drafted by the expert from OICA consisting of:
(a) provisions for protection of electrical shock for in-use and post-crash, and
(b) provisions to ensure safety performance of the Rechargeable Energy Storage System (REESS).
14. He clarified that the proposal would take over the provisions devised by the REESS group and recently adopted into UN Regulation No. 100. He concluded that, although the proposal would need improvement, it would form a good basis for future discussions.
15. GRSP noted that the next meeting of the informal working group was scheduled on 16-18 April 2013 in Tokyo, Japan.
