Submission from the European Commission and Italy to add transitional provisions in Regulation No. 96 to take into consideration the technical impossibility to install engines compliant with Stages IIIB and IV into some category T vehicles.
42. The expert from Italy presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRPE/2012/9/Rev.1 to align UN Regulation No. 96 with the European Directive 2011/87/EU.
43. The expert from the Netherlands identified an error in the proposal, since the ratio between the height of the centre of gravity of the tractor and the average minimum track width of all of the axles should be dimensionless.
44. GRPE adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRPE/2012/9/Rev.1, as amended below:
Paragraph 11.19., point (a), amend to read:
“… divided by the average minimum track width for each axle exceeds 0.90, the maximum design speed is restricted to 30 km/h;”
Paragraph 11.19., point (b), amend to read:
“… divided by the average minimum track width of all of the axles exceeds 0.90, the maximum design speed shall not exceed 30 km/h.”
GRPE requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2012 sessions, as Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 96.
