WP.29/1135 | Report of the World Forum on its 173rd (November 2017) session
3. (a) Light vehicles: Regulations Nos. 68, 83, 101 and 103
GRPE/2018/6 | Proposal for a new Supplement to the 06 and 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83 Proposal to clarify the text with regard to the extension of approvals for category N vehicles in order to avoid a possible misinterpretation that extensions may not be granted to vehicles with a reference mass greater than the mass of the type-approved vehicle.
GRPE/2018/7 | Proposal for a new Supplement to the 06 and 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83 Proposal to adapt the 06 and 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83 to Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) warning and inducement systems to current vehicles, emissions requirements and reagent infrastructure. In light of further vehicle weight reduction for CO2 optimization and the resultant vehicle packaging challenges, diesel cars will likely have smaller AdBlue® reagent tanks. For passenger cars, the warning indicator to refill AdBlue® has to be activated at 2,400 km of remaining reagent range which could result in very frequent refills of smaller reagent tanks. This proposal would allow for reagent refill inducement warnings as a percentage of tank capacity or as a function of the average driving range with a complete tank of fuel.
GRPE-76-03 | UN R101: Proposal for Supplements to the 06 and 07 series of amendments Proposal to clarify the procedures and requirements related to the selection of driving modes for testing of OVC-HEV vehicles with a mode selection switch.
GRPE-76-04 | UN R83: Proposal for a new Supplement to the 06 and 07 series of amendments Proposal to clarify the procedures and requirements related to the selection of driving modes for testing of OVC-HEV vehicles with a mode selection switch.

GRPE-76-22 | OVC-HEV Certification according to UN R83/R101 OICA request for clarification over whether the test results should reflect the energy (fuel and electric energy) used for vehicle propulsion or the energy used for vehicle propulsion <u>and</u> for energy conversion (recharging the battery – fuel energy to electric energy).
GRPE-76-32 | UN R83: Proposal for amendments to the 06 and 07 series of amendments Proposal of amendments to:<ol class="alpha"><li>align the definitions for bi-fuel vehicles align with the new definitions in UN GTR 15,</li><li>amend paragraph 5.3.1.2.4. to recognize that particulate pollutant emissions measurements are no longer limited to compression ignition vehicles,</li><li>amend paragraph 7.4.4.3. of Annex 7 to correct a typographical error,</li><li>amend paragraph 3.2.1.of Annex 8 to correct an error originating with UN R83 Revision 3 (2005),</li><li>amend paragraph 6.5.3.5. to correct a cross-reference error introduced in Amendment 1 (reference should read para. 6.5.3.3. rather than 6.5.3.2.) and should refer to the "annex" rather than the "appendix".</li></ol>
GRPE-76-34 | UN R83: Proposal for amendments to document GRPE/2018/7 Updated proposal to adapt the 06 and 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83 to Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) warning and inducement systems to current vehicles, emissions requirements and reagent infrastructure. In light of further vehicle weight reduction for CO2 optimization and the resultant use of smaller AdBlue® reagent tanks, this proposal would allow for reagent refill inducement warnings as a percentage of tank capacity or as a function of the average driving range with a complete tank of fuel.

4. (a) Heavy duty vehicles: Regulations Nos. 49 and 132
GRPE/2018/9 | Proposal for a new Supplement to the 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 49 Proposal to improve the "random check requirement" and define the rounding of test results calculated according to Annex 4A in the 05 series of amendments.
GRPE/2018/10 | Proposals for a new Supplement to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 49 Proposal to improve the Engine Control Unit (ECU) torque signal validation requirement in the 06 series of amendments to R49 with regard to dual-fuel or flex-fuel vehicles. Under the regulation, the ECU torque information can be calibrated only to one fuel's heat value (usually the basic reference fuel) even though the heat value of the alternative fuel is different. In order to increase the accuracy of the torque values used for calculating the emission results during in-service conformity testing, OICA proposes to change the provisions to either:<ol class="alpha"><li>Demonstrate that both fuels comply because the ODB system is able to detect the fuel used, or</li><li>Determine the torque deviation caused by the alternative fuel heat value compared to the standard fuel and apply this correction factor to calculate a more accurate power signal for the emission calculation.</li></ol>
