Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 139 (Australia)
GRRF/2018/2 02 Dec 2017 Working Party 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
Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 140 (Australia)
GRRF/2018/3 02 Dec 2017 Working Party 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 a new Regulation on agricultural vehicle couplings
GRRF/2018/4 05 Dec 2017 Working Party Mechanical coupling components for agricultural vehicles Agricultural vehicle couplings Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Mechanical Coupling Components of Combinations of Agricultural Vehicles Formal proposal from the ACDC informal group for consideration by GRRF for a new Regulation on uniform provisions concerning the approval of mechanical coupling components of combinations of agricultural vehicles. GRRF/2018/0004
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 54 (ETRTO)
GRRF/2018/5 02 Dec 2017 Working Party Commercial Vehicle Tyres CV Tires Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Pneumatic Tyres for Commercial Vehicles and their Trailers Proposal to introduce formulae for tyre sizes in Annex 5, Table B, add sizes in Annex 5, Part II, Tables C and E for old sizes that do not follow the guidelines/formulae applicable for high flotation tyres, clarify tyre width tolerances, correct paragraph numbering and references, align the text editorially with UN R30 and to make other editorial improvements, GRRF/2018/0005
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 106 (ETRTO)
GRRF/2018/6 05 Dec 2017 Working Party 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
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 106 (ETRTO)
GRRF/2018/7 05 Dec 2017 Working Party Tires for Agricultural Vehicles Agricultural Tires Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Pneumatic Tyres for Agricultural Vehicles and their Trailers Proposal to add markings for the inflation pressure to be used for measurements and tests. GRRF/2018/0007
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 108 (BIPAVER)
GRRF/2018/8 05 Dec 2017 Working Party Retreaded Tires for Motor Vehicles Retreaded Tires Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval for the Production of Retreaded Pneumatic Tyres for Motor Vehicles and their Trailers Proposal to introduce provisions for the approval of retreaded tyres marked with the alpine symbol ("3PMSF" or "snowflake symbol"). GRRF/2018/0008
Proposal for amendments to UN Regulation No. 109 (France)
GRRF/2018/9 05 Dec 2017 Working Party Retreaded Tires for Commercial Vehicles CV Retreaded Tires Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval for the Production of Retreaded Pneumatic Tyres for Commercial Vehicles and their Trailers In order to have a Regulation on the retreaded tyres with definitions and provisions structured in the same way of those previously introduced in amendments of "new tyres" Regulations, this amendment:<ol class="alpha"><li>Indicates that for the purpose of this Regulation "tyres" means "pneumatic tyres", so all the text has been reviewed</li><li>Introduces a definition of :<ul><li>"retreader” copy based on that “manufacturer" in the tyres regulations</li><li>Brand name", "Trademark", "Trade description" and "Commercial name" as defined in the tyre regulations</li><li>Material manufacturer / material supplier</li></ul></li><li>Takes into account the rounding rules (already approved in the other tyre regulations) for the calculation of width and diameter of the tyres</li><li>Aligns the title and the provisions of the para. 12 related to the names and addresses of Technical Services, Approved Laboratories and administrative Department with their equivalent in the tyres regulations </li></ol> GRRF/2018/0009
Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 79 (UK)
GRRF/2018/10 02 Dec 2017 Working Party Steering Equipment Steering Equipment Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to Steering Equipment Proposal to introduce provisions for the approval of Remote Control Manoeuvring (RCM) systems, defined as driver-actuated systems on off-road vehicles used for navigating exceptionally difficult terrain. This proposal seeks to permit remote manoeuvring capability provided that the vehicle is designed to operate off-road and the off-road location is confirmed throughout the whole period that the function is in use.
