The draft Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement requires that each approval number include the applicable supplement number; however, the application for a change of the supplement number does not constitute application for an extension of the approval. As a result, the approval number will not be changed even if a different supplement comes into force, resulting in a product having a supplement number that is different from the actual number of the supplement in force.

UN R0 Pretesting: Issue Report on "Insufficient information on UN Regulations regarding the application types under IWVTA"
Informal Subgroup Informal International Whole Vehicle Type Approval System (IWVTA) International Whole Vehicle Type Approval UN Regulation No. 0 on uniform provisions concerning the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval Under the draft IN R0, Annex 5, Part III requires applicants to furnish the list of type approvals, including approval number, upon which the whole vehicle approval will be based. UN R0 would allow for limited whole vehicle (L-IWVTA) approvals based upon compliance with some, but not all of the UN Regulations incorporated within UN R0. MLIT believes that the information requested under Annex 5, Part III is insufficient to understand whether an application for an L-IWVTA or a universal approval (U-IWVTA) is complete with regard to the equipment installed on the vehicle to be approved or whether applicant has simply failed to provide complete information. MLIT proposes adding a column for the applicant to briefly note a reason for omitting a regulation.
