Proposals for amendments to Supplement 1 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 110
Download in .pdf format

Supplement 1 to the 01 series included requirements for the positioning of LNG tanks. While the Netherlands believes that mounting the LNG fuel tank 200mm above the road surface is broadly adequate; this proposal aims to ensure that the fuel tank cannot, under any normal driving or stationary working situations, come into contact with the ground. The new wording provides more definitive conditions, including the possibility of a vehicle having one or more flat tires as well as for those vehicles that have ‘kneeling’ capability or variable suspension, both of which lower the frame of the vehicle closer to the ground.
