Proposal to amend the draft agreement to address situations where a Contracting Party disagrees with an adopted amendment and ceases to apply a given UN Regulation. The proposal seeks to clarify that the Contracting Party would still be obligated to accept type approvals based on the previous versions of the regulation (i.e., approvals based on versions of the regulation that the CP had been accepting before the amendment) for one year following its notification to cease application of the regulation.

56. The World Forum recognized that the Contracting Parties would need more time to review the above proposals and agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its next session in March 2015. The representatives of Germany and the United Kingdom noted the need for a finalized text prior to submitting to their national authorities for approval and so the World Forum agreed that adoption of the revised agreement would be delayed accordingly. The secretariat was also requested to circulate WP.29-164-23 as a separate official document.
