Download in .pdf format

Proposal to a) introduce requirements to prevent accidents when the flap covering the engine compartment is open; b) clarify that “low-floor vehicles” concern only those vehicles that provide a single step from the ground onto the low floor area; c) prohibit any equipment that would counteract the intention of such single-step low-floor vehicles to facilitate access by passengers with reduced mobility; d) clarify the text of the amendments updating provisions for service doors, windows and emergency exits; e) delete the prohibition on the use of laminated glass or plastic material in window panes; f) delete the provision that emergency windows be operable from outside the vehicle; g) clarify that an “overnight locking system” is not intended to be operated from inside the vehicle; and h) align the Annex 12 safety prescriptions for trolley buses with current electrical standards.

5. The expert from the Russian Federation lifted the reservation on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/70, submitted to the November 2014 sessions of WP.29 and of the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1). GRSG confirmed the adoption of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/70 as well as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/77 (this latter document will be submitted to the March 2015 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1), without amendments. The expert from OICA withdrew ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2014/31. GRSG agreed to withdraw ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/76 from the agenda of the WP.29 session in November 2014. (see WP.29-164-05).

8. GRSG noted GRSG-107-05, tabled by the expert from Hungary, addressing ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/70. In his opinion, this last compromise did not correctly address the security as it facilitated the access of undesirable people during the parking time of buses. GRSG noted no support and reiterated its decision of the previous session. GRSG agreed to keep GRSG-107-05 for reference only in the agenda of its May 2015 session.

63. Agenda item 4.7.6, Regulation No. 107, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/70, paragraphs 10.24 and 10. 25, correct to read (renumbering the paragraphs):

Paragraph 10.9. (instead of 10.24.), amend to read:

“10.9. Notwithstanding paragraphs 10.7. and 10.8., Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall continue to accept type approvals granted to the preceding series of amendments, which are not affected by the 05 series of amendments.”

Add a new paragraph 10.10. (instead of 10.25.), to read:
“10.10.Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall not refuse to grant extensions of approval for vehicles which are not affected by the 05 series of amendments.”
