Proposal to align the draft 03 series (document WP.29/2014/65) with other UN Regulations and Indian standards by specifying the upper weight threshold of the total permissible mass of M1 and N1 vehicles of 2.5 tonnes (rather than the current 2.8 tonnes).
65. The expert from India presented GRSG-108-41 proposing to harmonize the scope of UN Regulation No. 34 and to amend the total permissible mass limit to read “2.5 tonnes” instead of “2.8 tonnes”. The expert from Japan was of the opinion that this amendment would lower the stringency of the provisions of the UN Regulation and, therefore, could not support the proposal. GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this subject at its forthcoming session and requested the secretariat to distribute GRSG-108-41 with an official symbol.
