14. GRSP noted the decision taken by the World Forum during the June 2014 session to refer back to GRSP ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/34 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1110, para. 52) to further consider the minimum number of ISOFIX anchorages. The expert from OICA introduced GRSP-56-11-Rev.1, amending ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/34, superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2014/18 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2013/15 and addressing the widest range of possible vehicle types and configurations. GRSP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/34 as amended by Annex II to the session report. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal to WP.29 and AC.1, for consideration and vote at their June 2015 sessions, as draft Supplement 6 to the 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 14.

16. GRSP resumed consideration of paragraph of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2013/15, concerning exemption to the mandatory installation of an ISOFIX position anchorages in vehicles with one seat row. However, the expert from OICA showed (GRSP-55-32) differences between sport cars unfitted for the transport of children and conventional cars with one seat row. Therefore, he proposed GRSP-55-31 which introduces a geometric criteria (R- point height above the ground less than 450 mm) to exempt such sport cars. The expert from Germany raised a study reservation on this proposal. GRSP agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its December 2014 session and requested the secretariat to distribute GRSP-55-31 with an official symbol.
