Session 117 | Geneva | 8-11 Oct 2019
3. UN Regulation No. 26 (External projections of passenger cars)

GRSG agreed to continue considerations on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/2 submitted by OICA to amend the provisions for rear edges of the bonnet as they can be considered as not dangerous due to their location on the vehicle.

GRSG-117-45 | Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP29/GRSG/2019/2 Changes to the proposal to exempt rear edges of fenders and rear edges of A pillars under certain conditions.
GRSG/2019/2 | UN R26: Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 03 series of amendments Proposal to exempt rear edges of fenders and rear edges of A pillars under certain conditions from the requirement that sheet metal edges be folded back or fitted with a shield. These edges not easily contacted by VRU in a collision could be blunted instead.

GRSG will resume consideration of a proposal by France to clarify the provisions for windscreen wipers as a new series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 26, if available (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2019/34).

GRSG-117-26 | UN R26: Comments on document GRGS/2019/11 OICA comments on the original proposal (GRSG/2019/11) regarding interpretation of "contactable parts" and wiper systems. GRSG/2019/11 has been superseded by a revised proposal (GRSG/2019/34) incorporating the OICA comments.
GRSG-117-44 | Proposal to ECE/TRANS/WP29/GRSG/2019/34
GRSG-117-44/Rev.1 | Proposal proposal to ECE/TRANS/WP29/GRSG/2019/34
GRSG/2019/34 | UN R26: Proposal for the 04 series of amendment Proposal to introduce a generic drawing to improve interpretation of the regulation, especially with regard to contactable parts (sphere protocol). The proposal aims to clarify how to deal with potentially “exempted” parts and which requirements apply to which part of the windscreen wiper. Given the implications for approvals, the proposal is presented as a new series of amendments with transitional provisions starting 24 months after entry into force.
