Proposal for a new Regulation on Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
Download in .pdf format

Proposal to transfer electronic stability control systems provisions out of UN Regulation 13-H and into a new stand-alone regulation. The proposal arises from a perceived need to simplify UN R13-H to facilitate its application within the proposed international whole vehicle type approval. This document supersedes document GRRF-75-15.

Reference Number: GRRF/2014/12
Origin: CLEPA and OICA

36. The expert from OICA introduced a proposal for a draft Regulation on Brake Assist Systems (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/11 amended by GRRF-76-14 and GRRF-76-33) and a proposal for a draft Regulation on Electronic Stability Control (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/12 amended by GRRF-76-13). Addressing the open question on how to deal with the original Annex 8 of Regulation No. 13-H, he presented GRRF-76-40 and the corresponding proposal amending the draft mentioned above (GRRF-76-22 and GRRF-76-23). GRRF agreed to resume consideration of this item and keep the documentation on the agenda of the September 2014 session of GRRF.

49. The expert from OICA introduced the new documents as well as the proposals for separate UN Regulations on Brake Assist Systems (BAS) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/11) and on Electronic Stability Control (ESC) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/12) extracted from UN Regulation No. 13‑H (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/10). The Chair recalled the purpose of GRRF-76-33 and GRRF-76-34. OICA stated that GRRF-76-34 had been taken into account when drafting the proposals above. He introduced GRRF-78-29 proposing to delete the k-test method prescribed in Annex 7 and only keep the method prescribed in Appendix 2 to Annex 6 to align the UN Regulation with GTR No. 8. GRRF agreed to reconsider this proposal at its seventy-ninth session.

60. The expert from the UK recalled, on behalf of the group of interested experts dealing with this matter, the purpose of GRRF-79-05, GRRF-79-06 and GRRF‑79‑07 superseding official proposals for separate Regulations on Brake Assist Systems (BAS) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/11) and on Electronic Stability Control (ESC) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/12) extracted from Regulation No. 13‑H (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/10). She then introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/ GRRF/2015/33 as amended by GRRF-80-32 proposing transitional provisions to make sure that Countries mandating the fitment of ESC or BAS on the basis of the existing text of Regulation No. 13-H would be able to continue to mandate this fitment, unaffected by this extraction. GRRF agreed to reconsider this proposal at its February 2016 session.
