3. (a) Light vehicles: Regulations Nos. 68, 83, 101, and 103

GRPE may wish to consider a proposal prepared by the expert from the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) to clarify the basis of the petrol tank capacity restriction for mono fuel gas vehicles.

GRPE/2018/13 | UN R83: Proposal for a new Supplement to the 06 and 07 series of amendments Proposal to clarify the fuel tank capacity restriction for mono-fuel gas vehicles. The definition of “mono-fuel gas vehicle” was slightly amended between the 06 and the 07 series of amendments to UN R83. This proposal aims to align the definitions across both series in order to avoid divergent interpretations. Although the reference to a 15 liters tank has always been understood to refer to the nominal capacity of the tank, the use of the term “nominal capacity” in UN GTR No. 19 in several places other than the definition of “mono-fuel gas vehicle” can lead to other interpretations of the definition. The word “nominal” should therefore be inserted into the definition in both series of amendments.

GRPE may wish to consider a proposal prepared by the expert OICA to clarify the rules related to the selection of driving modes for testing of Off Vehicle Charge Hybrid Electric Vehicles(OVC-HEV) vehicles with a mode selection switch in UN Regulations Nos. 83 and 101.

GRPE-77-02 | UN R83: Proposal for amendments to document GRPE/2018/14 Proposal for changes to the draft new Supplement to the 06 and 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 83.
GRPE-77-03 | UN R101: Proposal for amendments to document GRPE/2018/16 Proposal to clarify the draft text that would explicitly specify requirements related to the selection of driving modes for testing of Off-Vehicle Charging Hybrid Electric Vehicles (OVC-HEV) with a mode selection switch.
GRPE-77-03 | UN R101: Proposal for amendments to document GRPE/2018/16 Proposal to clarify the draft text that would explicitly specify requirements related to the selection of driving modes for testing of Off-Vehicle Charging Hybrid Electric Vehicles (OVC-HEV) with a mode selection switch.
GRPE/2018/14 | UN R83: Proposal for a new Supplement to the 06 and 07 series of amendments Proposal to explicitly specify requirements related to the selection of driving modes for testing of Off-Vehicle Charging Hybrid Electric Vehicles (OVC-HEV) with a mode selection switch.
GRPE/2018/16 | UN R101: Proposal for a new Supplement to the 01 series of amendments Proposal to explicitly specify requirements related to the selection of driving modes for testing of Off-Vehicle Charging Hybrid Electric Vehicles (OVC-HEV) with a mode selection switch.

GRPE may wish to consider a proposal prepared by the expert OICA to adapt the provisions in UN Regulations Nos. 83 and 101 to allow the usage of WLTP based Ki and DF factors as well as OBD demos.

GRPE/2018/15 | UN R83: Proposal for a new Supplement to the 06 and 07 series of amendments Proposal to allow the usage of WLTP-based Ki and Deterioration Factors (DF) as well as On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) demos under UN R83. The proposal allows the use of the more robust WLTP and eases testing burdens by allowing manufacturers to use WLTP test results for UN R83.
GRPE/2018/17 | UN R101: Proposal for a new Supplement to the 00 and 01 series of amendments Proposal to allow the usage of WLTP-based Ki and Deterioration Factors (DF) as well as On-Board Diagnostics (OBD) demos under UN R101. The proposal allows the use of the more robust WLTP and eases testing burdens by allowing manufacturers to use WLTP test results for UN R101.

GRPE may wish to consider a proposal tabled by the expert from OICA to modify the Constant Volume Sampling system temperature sensor time response requirements.

GRPE/2018/18 | UN R83: Proposal for a new Supplement to the 03, 04, 05, 06 and 07 series of amendments Proposal to modify the Constant Volume Sampling system temperature sensor time response requirement.

GRPE may wish to review the proposal tabled by the expert from EC amending the definitions for bi-fuel vehicles and to align them with those in UN GTR No. 15.

GRPE-76-32 | UN R83: Proposal for amendments to the 06 and 07 series of amendments Proposal of amendments to:<ol class="alpha"><li>align the definitions for bi-fuel vehicles align with the new definitions in UN GTR 15,</li><li>amend paragraph 5.3.1.2.4. to recognize that particulate pollutant emissions measurements are no longer limited to compression ignition vehicles,</li><li>amend paragraph 7.4.4.3. of Annex 7 to correct a typographical error,</li><li>amend paragraph 3.2.1.of Annex 8 to correct an error originating with UN R83 Revision 3 (2005),</li><li>amend paragraph 6.5.3.5. to correct a cross-reference error introduced in Amendment 1 (reference should read para. 6.5.3.3. rather than 6.5.3.2.) and should refer to the "annex" rather than the "appendix".</li></ol>
