9. GRSP agreed to dissolve the activities to update Phase 1 of the GTR and to focus efforts on Phase 2 and on future amendments (e.g. ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2014/5, see para. 6). Thus, it was agreed to remove ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2014/2 from the agenda and to keep ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2012/2 (progress report) which would be updated, once that the activity on the head form tests would be finalized (see agenda item 4(a), para. 6).

10. The expert from the United States of America informed GRSP that the NPRM activity above-mentioned in para. 7 was in progress and would incorporate a discussion of the new proposed requirements for the head form tests (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2014/2 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2014/5). He recommended that interested parties comment on the proposed amendments to the head form tests in the NPRM so that a globally harmonized procedure could be developed. GRSP confirmed that the proposal of amendments would concern Phases 1 and 2 of the UN GTR.

11. GRSP agreed to defer discussion on this agenda item to its next sessions awaiting the outcome of the cost/benefit analysis and the transposition process of the UN GTR Phase 1 into the legislation of the United States of America.
