Session 115 | Geneva | 9-12 Oct 2018
2. (a) UN Regulation No. 107 (M2 and M3 vehicles)

GRSG agreed to resume consideration of a proposal by Poland (GRSG-114-05) to align the provisions of Annexes 3 and 11 of UN Regulation No. 107.

GRSG-114-05 | UN R107: Draft proposals for Supplement 8 to the 06 series of amendments and for Supplement 7 to the 05 series of amendments Proposal to align Annex 11 with Annex 3 following the removal of paragraphs in the latter regarding the marking of a vehicle with respect to the mass of baggage (done via Corrigendum 1 to Revision 6). This proposal would delete the same requirements (paragraphs 3.3.1.2.1, 3.3.1.2.2., 3.3.1.2.2.1. and 3.3.1.2.2.2) from Annex 11.

GRSG also agreed to revisit a proposal tabled by Italy (GRSG-114-16) that proposed new provisions for the possible approval of innovative equipment other than a platform to improve the accessibility of people with reduced mobility, particularly on coaches.

GRSG-114-16 | UN R107: Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 07 series of amendments Proposal to enable to approval of vehicles equipped with mechanisms other than platforms intended to assist access by persons with reduced mobility. The purpose is to avoid hindering innovation in offering solutions to persons with reduced mobility. The proposal add "lift" to the examples of possible mechanisms and modifies the language to be less specific in references to "wheelchairs" to address persons with reduced mobility regardless of whether they use a wheelchair.
