9. GRSP noted that the Executive Committee of the 1998 Agreement (AC.3.) at its November 2011 session agreed to develop an amendment (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2011/148) to UN GTR No. 9 (see ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1093, para. 128). GRSP noted that ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2011/148 also included the concrete proposal of amendment to the UN GTR. The expert from the Netherlands introduced the final status report (GRSP-50-32) complementing the proposal. However, concerning the justification for changes of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2011/148, the expert from the EC expressed disagreement on paragraphs 5 to 7, agreed on paragraph 8 and raised a study reservation on paragraphs 10 and 12.

10. GRSP agreed to resume discussion on this agenda item at its May 2012 session and requested the secretariat to distribute GRSP-50-32 with an official symbol.
