UN Regulation No. 137
Restraint System in Frontal Impact

Uniform provisions concerning the approval of passenger cars in the event of a frontal collision with focus on the restraint system

This regulation provides for a full-width rigid barrier frontal impact test to evaluate the performance of occupant restraint systems. Briefly, the test involves a 50 km/h impact of a vehicle equipped with a Hybrid III 50th percentile male driver and an HIII 5th percentile female front passenger. Aimed particularly at reducing injuries to the elderly, the test sets a 42 mm ThCC threshold that will be strengthened to 34 mm for the HIII 5F in 2020 (via the 01 series amendments).

Another solution could be to simply refer, in UN R94 and UN R137, to the label defined in UN R16; OICA suggests that GRSP discusses the most suitable approach. In addition, OICA agrees with the EC proposal to better define the required label, in order to avoid potential misinterpretations. However, when it comes to the printing of the user information in a multitude of languages, OICA considers this is an unnecessary burden, with no benefit to the user. User manuals are placed in the vehicles at the point of sale and therefore in the local language(s); in the not so frequent cases whereby a vehicle, during its lifetime, ends up in a different country/language, the user will always be able to obtain the manual in his own language, if he so asks. OICA consequently proposes not to amend the current requirements on the issue of languages. 11 Dec 2017
