Session 63 | Geneva | 14-18 May 2018
19. UN Regulation No. 129 (Enhanced Child Restraint Systems)
GRSP/2018/8 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments Proposal to add provisions for the definition and requirements for lower tether strap and the definition and specifications of Lower Tether Anchorages (LTA).
GRSP/2018/13 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 00 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to require that the shoulder strap positioner, if any, and the buckle open independently of each other in order to satisfy the requirement that the buckle can be opened by a single action. Currently, if the shoulder strap positioner has not been opened, it is possible that the buckle cannot be opened.
GRSP/2018/14 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to require that the shoulder strap positioner, if any, and the buckle open independently of each other in order to satisfy the requirement that the buckle can be opened by a single action. Currently, if the shoulder strap positioner has not been opened, it is possible that the buckle cannot be opened.
GRSP/2018/15 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 02 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to require that the shoulder strap positioner, if any, and the buckle open independently of each other in order to satisfy the requirement that the buckle can be opened by a single action. Currently, if the shoulder strap positioner has not been opened, it is possible that the buckle cannot be opened.
GRSP/2018/16 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to require that the shoulder strap positioner, if any, and the buckle open independently of each other in order to satisfy the requirement that the buckle can be opened by a single action. Currently, if the shoulder strap positioner has not been opened, it is possible that the buckle cannot be opened.
GRSP/2018/17 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 02 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to restrict iSize booster seats (Non-integral Enhanced Child Restraint Systems) to occupants with a maximum stature of 135 cm in order to satisfy the plug and play principle. Presently, UN R129 would allow for approval of such CRS for children up to 150 cm.
GRSP/2018/18 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to restrict iSize booster seats (Non-integral Enhanced Child Restraint Systems) to occupants with a maximum stature of 135 cm in order to satisfy the plug and play principle. Presently, UN R129 would allow for approval of such CRS for chiildren up to 150 cm.
GRSP/2018/19 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 00 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to allow the head of the dummy to pass the DE plane provided there is a structure (e.g., head pad or backrest) that provides adequate protection for the head. Under UN R129, the combination of a stiffer test bench foam and the design of the test dummy can mean that when testing forward-facing child restraints (including boosters), the dummy’s head often passes the DE plane. The Q-series dummies are not proven to be biofidelic during the rebound phase of the impact test. In such cases, the head pad or backrest provides protection to the child's head and the energy-absorption properties of this structure will have been tested using the test method described in UN Regulation No. 129.
GRSP/2018/20 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to allow the head of the dummy to pass the DE plane provided there is a structure (e.g., head pad or backrest) that provides adequate protection for the head. Under UN R129, the combination of a stiffer test bench foam and the design of the test dummy can mean that when testing forward-facing child restraints (including boosters), the dummy’s head often passes the DE plane.

In such cases, the head pad or backrest provides protection to the child's head and the energy-absorption properties of this structure will have been tested using the test method described in UN Regulation No. 129.
GRSP/2018/21 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 02 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to allow the head of the dummy to pass the DE plane provided there is a structure (e.g., head pad or backrest) that provides adequate protection for the head.

In such cases, the head pad or backrest provides protection to the child’s head and the energy-absorption properties of this structure will have been tested using the test method described in UN Regulation No. 129.
GRSP/2018/22 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments Proposal from Spain on behalf of the Technical Services Group (TSG) on UN R129 to allow the head of the dummy to pass the DE plane provided there is a structure (e.g., head pad or backrest) that provides adequate protection for the head. Under UN R129, the combination of a stiffer test bench foam and the design of the test dummy can mean that when testing forward-facing child restraints (including boosters), the dummy’s head often passes the DE plane.

GRSP-63-08/Rev.1 | UN R129: Proposal for various supplements to different series of amendments Proposal to align end-user information provisions with those adopted for UN R44.
GRSP-63-09 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 00 series of amendments, Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments, Supplement 4 to the 02 series of amendments and Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments Certain enhanced child restraint systems are designed for forward-facing and rearward-facing depending upon the age of the occupant. This proposal would clarify the labeling and packing information to avoid confusion between the requirements for these "dual" systems and exclusively forward-facing CRS.
GRSP-63-11/Rev.1 | UN R129: Proposal of supplements to the series of amendments Pursuant to the concern raised by Spain to avoid a misinterpretation that shoulder strap positioners must be designed to be released before the harness buckle, This proposal clarifies that a shoulder strap positioner may be released before, after, or simultaneously with the harness buckle. The proposal also improves the text with regard to the release of modules from a base.
GRSP-63-27 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments Proposal to remove the age and stature characteristics from the definition of an "Infant carrier" to avoid misinterpretations. These seats may be used by children above the age specification provided they fall within the stature limits.
GRSP-63-28 | UN R129: CLEPA responses to documents GRSP/2018/17-18 regarding approval categories and stature limits for booster seats
GRSP-63-30 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments Proposal to explicitly allow the granting extensions for type approvals under the 02 series of amendments and for any approval not affected by 03 series of amendments pursuant to the new guidelines on UN Regulations.
GRSP-63-10/Rev.1 | UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments and Supplement 4 to the 02 series of amendments During its 61st session, GRSP approved Supplement 3 to the 01 series of amendments and Supplement 2 to the 02 series of amendments. This proposal reinserts text inadvertently omitted during the reproduction of the text as approved during the session.
24. Collective amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 16, 44, 94, 129 and 137
GRSP/2018/9 | Collective amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 16, 94 and 137 Alternative proposal to GRSP/2017/27 submitted by the EC to clarify and improve airbag warning label requirements and to group these provisions under UN R16 in order to avoid the need to update multiple regulations in case of changes. OICA would not, however, add provisions concerning language variations (these are handled at the point of sale).
GRSP/2017/27 | Collective amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 16, 44, 94, 129 and 137 Proposal to harmonize airbag warning labels regarding the correct use of a child restraint system in a seating position equipped with an activated frontal airbag in order to prohibit the display of additional information unrelated to child safety.
