Session 64 | Geneva | 11-14 Dec 2018
13. UN Regulation No. 80 (Strength of seats and their anchorages (buses))

GRSP may consider a revised proposal aimed at removing the static tests and improving the dynamic test on seat anchorages.

GRSP-64-19 | UN R80: Proposal for amendments to document GRSP/2018/10 Proposal to add injury criteria in relation to the neck bending moment along the lateral axis (not to exceed 57 Nm when stretched), clarify the distance between the seats to align with IN R107, and annulation of the proposal to delete paragraph 2.1.2 because the scope of UN R80 provides for testing of seats for vehicles of M<sub>2</sub> and M<sub>3</sub> categories of II, III and B classes where approval is allowed via testing without a vehicle and mounted rigidly on a test platform.
GRSP-64-19/Add.1 | Study of the passengers’ level of protection in a frontal collision for buses equipped with the seats with lap belts and lap-shoulder belts
GRSP-64-22 | UN R80: Proposal for the 04 series of amendments Proposal to delete Appendix 5 as a basis for type approval and thereby end static testing as a compliance option.
GRSP-64-23 | UN R80: Proposal for the 05 series of amendments Proposal to amend Appendix 1 by reducing the forward movement of the head of the manikin to 1.2 m in alignment with UN R14. The proposal would also 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.
