This proposal is submitted with a request for guidance on the use of references to an ISO Standard (ISO 15830:2013) instead of preparing an Addendum to the Mutual Resolution No. 1 (M.R.1.) for the WorldSID 50th male specifications.

41. The representative of Australia introduced the draft UN Regulation (WP.29-163-14) as well as a draft 01 series of amendments (WP.29-163-15) to receive guidance (see para. 29 above). He explained that a revised version of WP.29-163-14 would be submitted for consideration and vote to the November 2014 session of WP.29 on appropriately addressing the reference to the ISO standard. He indicated that in the framework of the IWG activities on side impact dummies, work was adequately progressing on including the 50th percentile WorldSID into the draft Addendum 2 to M.R.1. He added that, as a result of recent negotiations, ISO would provide the specifications needed. Therefore, he announced that a draft Addendum 2 would be ready for consideration and vote by the end of 2015 or beginning 2016. The representative of the United States of America confirmed this schedule.
