31. The expert from OICA introduced detailed justifications (GRSG-107-18) for his proposal (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2014/24) to update, in UN Regulation No. 118, the ISO standard references. GRSG agreed to resume discussion on this agenda item at its May 2015 session and to keep GRSG-107-18 as reference, to leave time for experts to study ISO STD 6722 (see para. 26 above). Experts were invited to send comments to the secretariat concerning the above-mentioned ISO standard.

50. Recalling the purpose of his justification document GRSG-107-18, the expert from OICA introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2014/24 updating the provisions on the cable test, especially the reference to international standard ISO 6722 (available in GRSG-107-28). The expert from Germany presented additional test requirements for cables (GRSG-108-09). The expert from OICA supported in principle the more stringent test requirements proposed by Germany, but raised a reservation to study the possible need for transitional provisions.

51. GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session on the basis of an official document, jointly prepared by Germany and OICA, including a proposal for transitional provisions, if necessary.
