The expert from EC recommended to consider the existing wording applied to other vehicle categories (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2013/13). The expert from IMMA volunteered to prepare a revised proposal for the September 2015 session of GRRF.

20. The expert from EC introduced GRRF-79-16, proposing to apply to tricycles the existing Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) requirements for Powered Two Wheelers (PTWs).

As the proposed wording would also affect other L-category vehicles, the expert from EC volunteered to prepare a revised proposal for the September 2015 session of GRRF.
