Submitted by Germany
Discussions and Outcomes

14. The expert from Belgium introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/15, as amended by GRSG-108-30, proposing to insert new provisions for the installation of odometers on vehicles. GRSG noted general support on the proposal.

15. Following the discussion, GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/15, as amended below, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1) for consideration at their November 2015 sessions, as draft 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 39.
Paragraph 2.6., correct “information equipment” to read “odometer equipment”.
Paragraph 5.5.1., correct “odometer may be” to read “odometer shall be”.


10. The expert from Belgium introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2014/32, proposing new requirements for odometers into UN Regulation No. 39. She presented GRSG-107-29-Rev.1 amending her proposal to include the comments received by the expert from OICA (GRSG-107-20). GRSG supported in principle the proposal. However, there was a general agreement among experts that the mandatory fitting of odometers should be completed by transitional provisions, anti-tampering requirements and type approval markings. GRSG agreed to resume consideration on this subject at its May 2015 session on the basis of a revised proposal from the expert of Belgium and on a proposal of transitional provisions from the experts of OICA and IMMA.
