GRSP/2018/4 01 Mar 2018 Working Party Strength of Seats, Anchorages, and Head Restraints Strength of Seats Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Seats, their Anchorages and any Head Restraints Proposal to require seat belt components such as retractors to remain functional if damaged during the load-retention test according to Annex 9 of UN R17. Such components have occasionally been damaged during testing such that their functionality has been impaired. In order to ensure adequate occupant safety, this proposal would require all safety-belt components to be included in the test installation and require post-test inspection to confirm the continued functionality.

This proposal aims to improve repeatability and reproducibility while allowing more flexibility in permitting the use of rigid composite blocks and/or (adjustable) metal brackets in securing the vehicle in the place of the wooden block presently prescribed in Figure 1. GRSP/2018/0005
UN R44: Proposal for Supplement 15 to the 04 series of amendments (Netherlands)
GRSP/2018/6 01 Mar 2018 Working Party Child Restraint Systems Child Restraint Systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Restraining Devices for Child Occupants of Power-driven Vehicles ("Child Restraint System") Proposal to require checking of non-integral child restraints (e.g., booster seats) for risk of injuries caused by narrow contact with buckle and safety-belt such as may be caused by strong local pressure from twisted buckles, belts, or tongues.

OICA would not, however, add provisions concerning language variations (these are handled at the point of sale). GRSP/2018/0009
UN R80: Proposal for the 04 series of amendments (Germany)
GRSP/2018/10 01 Mar 2018 Working Party Seat Strength and Seat Anchorages for Large Passenger Vehicles Coach Seat Strength Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Seats of Large Passenger Vehicles and of these Vehicles with regard to the Strength of the Seats and their Anchorages Proposal to delete Appendix 5 and thereby end static testing as a compliance option. In addition, this proposal amends Appendix 1 by reducing the forward movement of the head of the manikin to 1.2 m in alignment with UN Regulation No. 14. Further, the proposal would limit the movement of the seat anchorages to 100 mm to ensure a minimum residual space for the passenger between the seats. Lastly, to ensure that seat fixations are reliably fastened after relocation, the proposal would require the necessary information to be marked directly on the seat and provided in the owner’s manual.

UN R129: Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 00 series of amendments (Spain)
GRSP/2018/19 02 Mar 2018 Working Party Enhanced Child Restraint Systems Enhanced Child Restraints Regulation on uniform provisions concerning the approval of enhanced Child Restraint Systems used onboard of motor vehicles. 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.
