World Forum for the Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations | Session 153 | 8-11 Mar 2011

44. The World Forum resumed consideration of the guidance requested by GRSG on the introduction of a concept of Revisions of type approvals in the framework of the 1958 Agreement on the basis of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2010/111 proposing Supplement 5 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 (Devices for indirect vision) (see ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1087, para. 45). The representative of OICA introduced WP.29-153-27 clarifying the concerns expressed by Japan at the previous session.

45. The Chair of GRE agreed to adopt documents ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2010/111 and WP.29-153-27, however, as the definitions of “revision” and “extension” of type approvals may affect manufacturers of vehicle lighting and light signalling, he asked WP.29 to leave this item including WP.29-153-26, on the agenda of the June session to allow for potential comments from GRE experts. The Chair of GRRF wondered if WP.29-153-26 in seeking clarification on the extensions to type approvals was linked to the proposal by GRSG. WP.29 agreed with the Chair’s suggestion to have a final review of the proposals at the June 2011 session relying on OICA to advise on the relationship between both issues.

45. The World Forum was asked to provide guidance on the introduction of the concept of revisions of type approvals in the framework of the 1958 Agreement on the basis of a proposal for Supplement 5 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 (Devices for indirect vision). The representative of Japan expressed some concerns and the World Forum agreed to continue consideration of this concept for possible application to all Regulations annexed to the 1958 Agreement at its March 2011 session.

28. The expert from the Netherlands presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2011/22 (superseding GRSG-100-13) proposing the concept of extension in the communication form of Regulation No. 61 (External projections of commercial vehicles). GRSG noted that a concrete proposal (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2011/152) on this subject was on the agenda of the November 2011 session of WP.29 (see WP.29 report: ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1093, para. 51). GRSG agreed to resume consideration of the matter at its next session on the basis of a revised proposal by the Netherlands, taking into account the final decision of WP.29.
