Proposal to regulate the direction of discharging the pressure relief devices of CNG containers.
24. The expert from the Netherlands introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2014/29 to regulate the direction of discharging the pressure relief devices of CNG containers. He explained that the proposal addressed the safety of not only the vehicle occupants but also the surrounding area. The expert from IANGV introduced GRSG-107-35, which suggests that the discussion should be deferred until after the outcome of the ongoing research conducted in the United States of America on this matter. The experts from France, Germany, Sweden and OICA questioned the impact of this proposal on design of vehicle categories M1 and N1. GRSG agreed to resume discussion on this subject at its May 2015 session on the basis of a revised document.
