39. The expert from EC, in his capacity of GRE Ambassador, informed GRE about the progress in preparing Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement and developing Regulation No. 0 on IWVTA. The latest draft of Regulation No. 0 had been presented to the June 2015 session of WP.29 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2015/68). GRE recalled its discussion on DRL (para. 16 above) and hoped that a solution would soon be found for the purposes of listing Regulation No. 48 in an annex to Regulation No. 0 on IWVTA.

42. The expert from EC, in his capacity of GRE Ambassador, and the secretariat informed GRE about the progress in preparing Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement and developing Regulation No. 0 on IWVTA and DETA database. The latest draft of Regulation No. 0 was available in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2015/68. GRE also noted that IWG IWVTA had proposed to move the installation requirements for DRL from Regulation No. 48 into Regulation No. 87 and that WP.29, at its November 2014 session, urged GRE to find the best solution in close cooperation with the stakeholders. In this respect, GRE discussed whether a new IWG was needed to tackle this issue. Having recalled its earlier considerations (see paras. 15 and 16 above), GRE decided against a new IWG for the time being.

52. The representative of Japan, Co-Chair of the IWG on IWVTA, reported on the progress at the eighteenth meeting of the group. He reported that IWG had introduced two definitions for type: vehicle type, which could contain all variants regardless of their level of conformity, and which corresponded to what we are used to; and IWVTA type, which defined one level of conformity within a vehicle type. He presented informal document WP.29-166-15 on the changes required to the draft UN Regulation No. 0. He clarified that these changes would be included in the text during the September session of the group and would further be included as Revision 1 to document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2015/68. He notified WP.29 that UN Regulation No. 0 would be pre-tested and that the contact point for pre-testing had been indicated in the informal document for anyone interested. The representative of the Russian Federation highlighted mutual proposal with the European Commission on the applicability of national and regional requirements in addition to IWVTA if there are no such requirements in the existing UN Regulations
