UN R80: Proposal for the 04 series of amendments
Working Party Informal Seat Strength and Seat Anchorages for Large Passenger Vehicles Coach Seat Strength Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Seats of Large Passenger Vehicles and of these Vehicles with regard to the Strength of the Seats and their Anchorages Research has shown that dynamic testing under Appendix 1 is more demanding than the static testing under Appendix 5. As a result, approvals based upon static testing are not equivalent to approvals based on dynamic testing. This proposal, therefore, would delete Appendix 5. In addition, this proposal amends Appendix 1 by reducing the forward movement of the head of the manikin to 1.2 m in alignment with UN Regulation No. 14. Further, the proposal would limit the movement of the seat anchorages to 100 mm to ensure a minimum residual space for the passenger between the seats. Lastly, to ensure that seat fixations are reliably fastened after relocation, the proposal would require the necessary information to be marked directly on the seat and provided in the owner’s manual. 8 Dec 2017

Germany has determined that the current text has been misinterpreted with regard to the intended requirement for a safety device that does not break and maintains its capability to retain a passenger’s body in the event of an accident. This proposal clarifies that such any such structure “shall retain its safeguard function during testing”. 9 Sep 2016
