Proposal for Supplement 1 to the UN Regulation on Pole Side Impact in its original version and to the 01 series of amendments
Working Party Informal Pole side-impact protection Pole Side Impact Uniform provisions concerning the approval of vehicles with regard to their Pole Side Impact performance (PSI) The scope of the new Global Technical Regulation on Pole Side Impact includes vehicles of category N1 (limited to GVM < 3.5 t) and vehicles of category M1 (without mass limit). However, the vehicle fleet includes a small number of M1 vehicles with a GVW > 3.5t which are based on vehicles of category N2, N3, M2 or M3. Based on the OICA proposal (document GRSP-56-12) and ensuing discussions, Australia proposes to limit the scope of the GTR to both M1 vehicles under 3.5 t maximum vehicle mass and to certain N1 vehicles based on geometric measurements. 12 Dec 2014
