UN R67: Proposal for Supplement 16 to the 01 series of amendments (OICA)
GRSG/2018/2 23 Jan 2018 Working Party Liquefied Petroleum Gas Equipment LPG Equipment Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific Equipment of Motor Vehicles Using Liquefied Petroleum Gases in their Propulsion System II. A Vehicle Fitted with Specific Equipment for the Use of Liquefied Petroleum Gases in its Propulsion System with regard to the Installation of such Equipment Alternative solution from OICA to the German proposal GRSG/2017/16 regarding visibility/access requirements for PRV/PRD-related components in order to improve maintenance and reduce the risk of critical failures of pressure relief devices. The proposal also proposes amending provisions of the ageing test in Annex 15 in response to concerns over failures of rubber hoses. GRSG/2018/0002
UN R110: Proposal for Corrigendum 1 to Revision 3 (LG Europe and ISO)
GRSG/2018/3 23 Jan 2018 Working Party Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific components of motor vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system; II. Vehicles with regard to the installation of specific components of an approved type for the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system. In the absence of complete harmonization with ISO 11439, this proposal recommends that Table 6.4 of UN R110 should be amended by the following for CNG-1 designs:<ol class="alpha"><li>Delete A.17, A.25, and A.7 since they do not match the tests specified in paragraph 7.5 on Cylinder design qualification tests</li><li>Add A.15 and A.6 since they do match the tests specified in paragraph 7.5 on Cylinder design qualification tests</li><li>Add A.24 because paragraph 6.9 on Fire protection requires all PRDs on all cylinder types to comply with A.24.</li></ol> GRSG/2018/0003
UN R34: Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 02 series of amendments and for Supplement 2 to the 03 series of amendments (France)
GRSG/2018/4 23 Jan 2018 Working Party Prevention of Fire Risks Fuel Tanks Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Prevention of Fire Risks Proposal to clarify the test requirements in alignment with the French text of the regulation by amending paragraph 5.10 to read "Tanks shall be installed in such a way as to be protected from the consequences of a collision to the front or the rear of the vehicle; there shall be no protruding parts, sharp edges, etc. <strike>near</strike> <b>nearby all around</b> the <strike>tank</strike> <b>tanks</b>." The proposal aims to clarify the inspection of potentially protruding parts around the tanks in order to ensure their integrity in the event of a collision. GRSG/2018/0004
UN R73: Proposal for the 02 series of amendments (France)
GRSG/2018/5 23 Jan 2018 Working Party Commercial Vehicle Lateral Protection CV Lateral Protection Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Goods Vehicles, Trailers and Semi-Trailers with regard to their Lateral Protection Proposal to amend geometrical criteria (dimensions and distances between lateral protection devices) and installation provisions for lateral protection barriers in order to improve their performance with regard to vulnerable road users. The proposal would<ol class="alpha"><li>increase the maximum distance between lateral rails from 300 mm to 400 mm</li><li>redefine the limits for the lower edge from "550 mm above the ground" to definition via an isosceles triangle formed by lines drawn at 8° from the ground contact points of the vehicle tires intersecting at point "I" above the road surface where the maximum limit "I" is between 350-450 mm</li><li>define the upper edge as from 450 mm rather than 300 mm maximum from the vehicle structure or maximum height of the upper edge above the ground from 950 mm to 850 mm</li><li>update the horizontal static force requirement for lateral protection devices to 3 kN and the deflection under load criteria to 90 mm over the rearmost 250 mm of the device and 450 mm over the remainder of the device.</li></ol> The purpose is to reduce the risk of running over a person (e.g., a motorcycle rider) during a lateral collision. GRSG/2018/0005
UN R121: Proposal for Supplement 10 to the original series of amendments and Supplement 2 to the 01 series of amendments (OICA)
GRSG/2018/6 24 Jan 2018 Working Party Location and Identification of Hand Controls, Tell-tales and Indicators Hand Controls, Tell-tales and Indicators Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Location and Identification of Hand Controls, Tell-tales and Indicators Proposal pursuant to discussions on the application of footnote <sup>18</sup> under Table 1 concerning tell-tale symbols and the use of colours to convey different meanings. ISO standard 2575-2004, para. 5.1. allows for the use of different colours to convey a change in the operating condition. This proposal would remove the current footnote <sup>18</sup> text and application of the footnote to telltales 2, 9-12, and 19 pending a decision on the proposal to apply a revised footnote to the master lighting switch (tell-tale 1). Paragraph 5.4.1.1. of UN R121 references ISO 2575-2004 which was developed to simplify the application of UN R121 when colour changes are adopted in other UN Regulations; however, OICA submits that the footnote which references ISO 2575-2004 in relation to specific lighting devices or systems creates a degree of confusion. (If approved, this proposal would likely impact Supplement 3 to the 01 series rather than Supplement 2 given that WP.29 at its November 2017 session adopted the proposal to add a telltale and symbols for “Accident Emergency Call System (AECS)” and to align UN R121 with the 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 16 as Supplement 2 to the 01 series.) GRSG/2018/0006
UN R43: Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 01 series of amendments (Finland)
GRSG/2018/7 26 Jan 2018 Working Party Safety Glazing Materials Safety Glazing Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Safety Glazing Materials and their Installation on Vehicles Proposal to amend Annex 7 (laminated-glass panes), inserting a new paragraph 6. to allow optional 2,260 g ball test and headform test for laminated-glass panes. The proposal aims to amend UN R43 to enable the approval of the laminated-glass panes with improved mechanical properties, especially as designed for front, exterior, forward-facing glazing of the upper deck of a double-deck vehicle. GRSG/2018/0007
UN R67: Proposal for Supplement 16 to the 01 series of amendments (Poland)
GRSG/2018/8 25 Jan 2018 Working Party Liquefied Petroleum Gas Equipment LPG Equipment Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific Equipment of Motor Vehicles Using Liquefied Petroleum Gases in their Propulsion System II. A Vehicle Fitted with Specific Equipment for the Use of Liquefied Petroleum Gases in its Propulsion System with regard to the Installation of such Equipment GRSG/2018/0008
UN R46: Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 04 series of amendments (OICA)
GRSG/2018/9 25 Jan 2018 Working Party Indirect Vision Devices Indirect Vision Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Devices for Indirect Vision and of Motor Vehicles with regard to the Installation of these Devices Proposal to clarify that overlays may only be used to convey "safety-related rearward vision information." The proposal addresses confusion regarding circumstances under which the provision of information through overlays is permissible. The proposal also amends the French text. The overall proposal aims to make clear that overlays may convey safety information regarding the rearward environment of the vehicle and are not necessarily limited only to when the vehicle is moving in reverse. The proposal also aims to restrict the information to rear-vision safety. Other information, not related to the rear view, should never appear within the defined field of view. GRSG/2018/0009
