Discussions and Outcomes
161st WP.29 session (12-15 Nov 2013)

95. The representative of EU reported on the work progress of the IWG on Environmental and Propulsion Performance Requirements (EPPR) for L-category vehicles. He introduced a proposal to develop amendments to UN GTR No. 2 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/127), aimed at inserting environmental and propulsion performance requirements and at extending the scope to three-wheeled vehicles. He added that the proposal also aimed at developing new UN GTRs and Regulations on environmental and propulsion performance requirements for light vehicles, specifying new provisions on (i) crank case and evaporative emissions, (ii) On Board Diagnostic Systems (OBD) and (iii) propulsion unit performances (i.e. power, torque and maximum speed). He concluded his report indicating that the terms of reference and rules of procedures of EPPR had been annexed to the GRPE report ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRPE/66. AC.3 endorsed the proposal and requested the secretariat to prepare a corresponding AC.3 document for transmission to GRPE. The Representative of IMMA stated the industry’s support to the IWG EPPR and emphasized the importance of the decision taken in the IWG to give priority to the work on two-wheelers, in particular L3 vehicles. He also emphasized the high ambition of the IWG to deliver the results and final report in 2016.
