Presentation in support of Japan’s proposal to increase the stringency of UN R34.
15. The expert from Japan gave a presentation (GRSG-106-33) justifying the proposed amendments in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2014/16 as amended by GRSG-106-20 to prevent vehicles from fire risks under certain conditions in the event of a rear collision. GRSG noted a number of comments. Following the discussion, GRSG adopted GRSG-106-39, as reproduced in Annex III to the GRSG 106th session report, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2014 sessions, as draft 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 34, subject to a final review by GRSG at its next session in October 2014.
