UN R44: Proposal Supplement 18 to the 04 series of amendments
Working Party Informal Child Restraint Systems Child Restraint Systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Restraining Devices for Child Occupants of Power-driven Vehicles ("Child Restraint System") At the December 2019 GRSP session, the Commission proposed to amend the scope of UN R44 to clarify that a belt guide cannot be approved without being part of a child restraint system (paragraph 1.2). The amendment was agreed by the GRSP and sent to WP.29 together with the proposal from IC/ANEC on the phase out of the R44 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2019/28) for consideration at its June 2020 session. Upon further examination, the Commission identified that its proposed amendment was not in line with the General Guidelines for UN regulatory procedures and transitional provisions in UN Regulations. In reconsidering the drafting, the Commission concluded that <i>de jure</i>, a ‘guide strap’ and similar devices cannot be separately approved as a child restraint system under the current wording of UN R44. For that reason, the Commission proposes to withdraw its initial draft amendment. The Commission underlines that the withdrawal of its draft amendment does not change its understanding of paragraph 2.8.8. of Regulation 44 that approvals granted to guide straps that are not part of a child restraints systems are not valid.
