Proposal to amend requirements for the minimum number of priority seats: four in Class I, two in Class II and Class III and one in Class A and Class B and disallowing the priority designation for folding seats.
6. The expert from Germany proposed reviewing the minimum number of priority seats in buses and coaches (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2013/15) in order to align the provisions of UN Regulation No. 107 with those of the corresponding EU Directive. GRSG also considered GRSG-105-15 (tabled by OICA) and adopted the proposal, as reproduced below, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2014 sessions, as draft Supplement 4 to the 04 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 107.
Annex 3, paragraph 184.108.40.206.3., amend to read:
The minimum number of priority seats complying with the requirements of Annex 8, paragraph 3.2. shall be four in Class I, two in Class II and one in Class A and B. In the case of vehicles of Class III or Class B subject to the requirements of Annex 8, the minimum number of priority seats shall be two in Class III and one in Class B.
A seat that folds out of the way when not in use shall not be designated as a priority seat.”
