WP.29-180-05 | UN R151: Proposal for amendment to the proposal for Supplement 1 Proposal to correct values presented in document WP.29/2020/18 and clarification of "first point of information" application in assessment of BSIS.

WP.29/2020/13 | UN R107: Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 07 series of amendments For escape hatches on buses of Classes A and B, proposal to allow a maximum length of 1600 mm equally spaced to cover the shortest vehicles, so the allowed space should be the maximum of either the third of the length or 1600 mm. This proposal will not affect the positioning requirements for any mid-sized and larger buses.
WP.29/2020/14 | UN R107: Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 08 series of amendments For escape hatches on buses of Classes A and B, proposal to allow a maximum length of 1600 mm equally spaced to cover the shortest vehicles, so the allowed space should be the maximum of either the third of the length or 1600 mm. This proposal will not affect the positioning requirements for any mid-sized and larger buses.

WP.29/2020/19 | UN R58: Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 03 series of amendments Proposal to introduce a definition for “Aerodynamic devices” and ensure that such devices shall not compromise the functionality of rear underrun protection devices.
WP.29/2020/20 | UN R110: Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 04 series of amendments Proposal to clarify provisions for periodic testing and periodic requalification of Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) cylinders and Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) tanks.
WP.29/2020/21 | UN R110: Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 04 series of amendments Proposal to introduce changes/additions in the Change of Design Table to better specify appropriate test requirements for CNG cylinders with composite materials and, in some cases, to harmonize with International Standard Organisation (ISO) standard 11439.
WP.29/2020/22 | UN R121: Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 01 series of amendments Proposal in line with ISO 2575 to allow for the use of different colors (e.g., red, yellow, green) to convey the status modes (e.g., failure, active) of seven functions via modification of footnote 18 under Table 1.

WP.29/2020/25 | UN R144: Proposal for Supplement 2 Proposal to clarify that UN R144 does not specify the frequency (number) of attempts or the duration of efforts to establish a network connection (voice or data transmission) for automatic emergency call systems. <span class="orange">This proposal has been deferred to the June 2020 WP.29 session.</span>

WP.29/2020/28 | UN R62: Proposal for the 01 series of amendments Proposal to introduce electromagnetic specifications for the approval of an electronic device, such as a transponder — even without the traditional functionality of a mechanical key — under UN R62 via reference to UN R10 on electromagnetic compatibility (as is the case under UN R116).

The <i>“Power supply other than back-up power supply mentioned in paragraph 35.10.1”</i> should indeed only be tested if it is the only power supply for the AECS.</li><li>include two-year transitional provisions</li><li>remove the exclusion of M<sub>1</sub> and N<sub>1</sub> not equipped with a side airbag and to specify that the AECS shall be able to output the navigation solution in an NMEA-0183 protocol format (RMC, GGA, VTG, GSA and GSV message), among other clarifications.</li></ol>
