15. GRSP noted GRSP-57-14-Rev.1 superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/15 to clarify the installation of different light colors on the buckle and to improve its visibility in dark conditions for the wearer and facilitate rescue of occupants. The expert from EC underlined that the proposal was not aimed at introducing a tell-tale but rather a comfort system. Finally, GRSP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/15, as amended by Annex II to this report (including GRSP-57-14-Rev.1). The secretariat was requested to submit ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/15 to WP.29 and AC.1, for consideration and vote at their November 2015 sessions as part of (see para. 14 above) draft Supplement 6 to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 16.
