In absence of new proposals tabled by the expert from OICA, the Chair recalled the purpose of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2014/13 amended by GRRF-79-08 proposing a draft Regulation on tyre installation and that the expert from OICA agreed to table a revised proposal addressing the comments received. The expert from Japan tabled GRRF-80-26 addressing concerns expressed at the seventy-ninth session of GRRF.
