UN R13 and 13-H: Proposal for amendments to the 01 series of amendments (OICA)
07 Feb 2018 Working Party Informal Documents Heavy-Duty Vehicle Braking Heavy-Duty Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles of Categories M, N and O with regard to Braking Light-Duty Vehicle Braking Light Vehicle Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Passenger Cars with regard to Braking This document presents two proposals. (1)The new series 02 of Regulation 79 introduced requirements for RCP (remote controlled parking) systems. An RCP system requires the engagement of an EPB (electronic parking brake) once the manoeuvre has finished and the ignition is switched off. This proposal would allow the release or disconnection of the EPB by a remote control system (approved to R79) so the RCP can subsequently drive the vehicle out of a parking spot. (2) Proposal to permit illumination of the stop lamp for electric regenerative braking under 0.7m/s² deceleration in order to allow for "one-pedal driving" of electric vehicles. GRRF-86-0016

The new series 02 of Regulation 79 introduced requirements for RCP systems. An RCP system requires the engagement of an EPB (electronic parking brake) once the manoeuvre has finished and the ignition is switched off. This proposal would allow the release or disconnection of the EPB by a remote control system (approved to R79) so the RCP can subsequently drive the vehicle out of a parking spot. The second proposal in the original document concerning regenerative braking and stop lamp activation will be discussed again as a revised formal document at the September 2018 GRRF session.

UN R131: Proposal to amend document GRRF/2017/24
13 Feb 2018 Working Party Informal Documents Advanced Emergency Braking Systems Advanced Emergency Braking Uniform provisions concerning the approval of motor vehicles with regard to advanced emergency braking systems Germany proposed, in document GRRF/2017/24, to require automatic reactivation of a manually deactivated automatic braking system. One concern with the proposal invoked the need for prolonged deactivation under certain circumstances, such as when a vehicle is fitted temporarily with a snow plow. This proposal would explicitly require AEBS to be capable of detecting a blocked sensor (already implicit in the regulation) such that AEBS would not reactivate in such cases. GRRF-86-0032

UN R106: Proposal for a Supplement as adopted by GRRF
17 Feb 2018 Working Party Informal Documents Tires for Agricultural Vehicles Agricultural Tires Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Pneumatic Tyres for Agricultural Vehicles and their Trailers Proposal as approved by GRRF to add tyre sizes and tyre classification codes common in the United States and standardised by the Tire and Rim Association, but needed under UN Regulation No. 106 in order to permit their type approval in conformity with Regulation EU 167/2013 for imported tyres. The proposal adds kPa marking specifications for use in measurements and tyre testing. The proposal further includes changes to the text and addition of tyre size designations to Annex 5 and Annex 7:<ol class="alpha"><li>Paragraph 2.33.2 deleted since new tables for IF and VF were added to Annex 7</li><li>Paras 3.2., 3.2.2. and 5.4. modified because "tyres submitted for approval" cannot bear an approval mark until approved and the "only" as it is written can be misunderstood. Para. 3.2.2. was aligned to the wording in other UN Regulations. Reference to para. 3.3 in paragraph 5.4. is deleted because paragraph 3.3 does not refer to specific markings</li><li>Para 6.1.2. amended to align the wording to the headers in Annex 5 and to correct the reference to the footnote</li><li>Para 6.2.1. amended to restore the proper references after renumbering resulting from the latest Supplements</li><li>The amendment of Annex 5, Table 5 adds the value for the overall diameter (D) in column (*) that applies to tyres marked with classification code "I-3"</li><li>Annex 5, Table 6, Note 1 amended because most of the tyre sizes listed in the table, especially those identified by the "classification code I‐3" (i.e. Traction tread), are currently available in both versions: ‘implement’ to be used on agricultural machinery and 'IND' to be used on construction vehicles. The two types of tyres have the same type of size designation and the same dimensions. Therefore some manufacturers identify those tyres with the suffix 'IND' rather than with the suffix 'IMP' thus applying the variation of load capacity with speed as published in Annex 7 Part E. The reason for this proposal is to avoid a duplication of tables with a new table only replacing the suffix IMP with the suffix IND.</li><li>The addition of the footnote to Annex 5, Table 7 answers the request by GRRF to introduce appropriate formulae in the Regulation instead of continuously updating Annex 5.</li><li>References in Annex 7 corrected pursuant to the renumbering following the introduction of three new paragraphs in Supplement 15 approved during the 172nd session of WP.29.</li><li>Annex 7, Part A amended to conform with Tire and Rim Association specifications for code designated diagonal tyres with speed symbol A8.</li></ol> GRRF-86-0042

Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 139 (Australia)
02 Dec 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Brake Assist Systems Brake Assist Systems Uniform provisions concerning the approval of passenger cars with regard to brake assist systems Proposal to clarify the purpose of UN R139 which was originally established through the extraction of brake assist system (BAS) provisions from UN R13-H on brake systems. Within the context of UN R13-H, the BAS provisions were written to assess performance in cases where a vehicle was fitted with a brake assist system. As a stand-alone regulation, UN R139 applies only to vehicles that are equipped with BAS. Therefore, this supplement proposes to refine the text to remove the "if fitted" language and ensure that UN R139 can only be applied to a vehicle equipped with a BAS. GRRF/2018/0002
GRRF/2018/3
Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 140 (Australia)
02 Dec 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Electronic Stability Control Systems ESC Systems Uniform provisions concerning the approval of passenger cars with regard to electronic stability control systems Proposal to remove “if fitted” language from the text to clarify that UN R140 can only be applied to a vehicle equipped with a ESC system. UN R140 was originally established through the extraction of electronic stability controls (ESC) provisions from UN R13-H on brake systems. Within the context of UN R13-H, the ESC provisions were written to assess performance in cases where a vehicle was fitted with an electronic stability control system. As a stand-alone regulation, however, UN R140 applies only to vehicles that are equipped with ESC. The proposal also would correct an apparent error in to Annex 4, paragraph 2.1. where the reference to "ISO 15037 Part 1:2005" should read "ISO 15037 Part 1:2006". GRRF/2018/0003

Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 106 (ETRTO)
05 Dec 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Tires for Agricultural Vehicles Agricultural Tires Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Pneumatic Tyres for Agricultural Vehicles and their Trailers This document consolidates previous documents GRRF/2017/19 and informal document GRRF-84-17 taking into account the request for addition of tyre sizes and tyre classification codes common in the United States and standardised by the Tire and Rim Association, but needed to be added to UN Regulation No. 106 in order to permit their type approval in order to conform to Regulation EU 167/2013 for tyres to be exported to Europe. It includes addition/modifications of some paragraphs to the main text of the Regulation as well as the addition of some tyre size designations to Annex 5 and Annex 7:<ol class="alpha"><li>ISO 4251-4 replaced by ISO 18805</li><li>Paragraph 2.33.2 deleted since new tables for IF and VF were added to Annex 7</li><li>Paras 3.2., 3.2.2. and 5.4. modified because "tyres submitted for approval" cannot bear an approval mark until approved and the "only" as it is written can be misunderstood. Para. 3.2.2. was aligned to the wording in other UN Regulations. Reference to para. 3.3 in paragraph 5.4. is deleted because paragraph 3.3 does not refer to specific markings</li><li>Para 6.1.2. amended to align the wording to the headers in Annex 5 and to correct the reference to the footnote</li><li>Para 6.2.1. amended to restore the proper references after renumbering resulting from the latest Supplements</li><li>The amendment of Annex 5, Table 5 adds the value for the overall diameter (D) in column (*) that applies to tyres marked with classification code "I-3"</li><li>Annex 5, Table 6, Note 1 amended because most of the tyre sizes listed in the table, especially those identified by the "classification code I‐3" (i.e. Traction tread), are currently available in both versions: ‘implement’ to be used on agricultural machinery and 'IND' to be used on construction vehicles. The two types of tyres have the same type of size designation and the same dimensions. Therefore some manufacturers identify those tyres with the suffix 'IND' rather than with the suffix 'IMP' thus applying the variation of load capacity with speed as published in Annex 7 Part E. The reason for this proposal is to avoid a duplication of tables with a new table only replacing the suffix IMP with the suffix IND.</li><li>The addition of the footnote to Annex 5, Table 7 answers the request by GRRF to introduce appropriate formulae in the Regulation instead of continuously updating Annex 5.</li><li>References in Annex 7 corrected pursuant to the renumbering following the introduction of three new paragraphs in Supplement 15 approved during the 172nd session of WP.29.</li><li>Annex 7, Part A amended to conform with Tire and Rim Association specifications for code designated diagonal tyres with speed symbol A8.</li></ol> GRRF/2018/0006

Regulatory strategy when voluntary systems become mandated (OICA)
10 Oct 2017 Informal Group Informal Documents 1958 Agreement 1958 Agreement Agreement Concerning the Adoption of Uniform Technical Prescriptions for Wheeled Vehicles, Equipment and Parts which can be Fitted and/or be Used on Wheeled Vehicles and the Conditions for Reciprocal Recognition of Approvals Granted on the Basis of these Prescriptions OICA perspectives for addressing cases of technologies voluntarily installed on vehicles by manufacturers that subsequently become subject to mandatory installation. In particular, the presentation addresses cases where a UN Regulation addresses technologies that are optional in some markets, but mandatory in others. For example, UN R116 includes both vehicle alarms and vehicle immobilizers. Alarms are presently optional across parties to the 1958 Agreement, but some parties require immobilizers. This divergence creates confusion over the validity of UN R116 approvals across all parties to the Agreement. IWVTA-25-0006
