GRSP may wish to consider a proposal prepared by the expert from the Netherlands, aiming to correct an omission in paragraph 3 of the UN Regulation, with regard to information on safety-belt reminders (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2021/10). GRSP also agreed to resume consideration of a proposal of a supplement tabled by the expert from the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2019/15 and GRSP-66-14), aimed at introducing an alternative (at the choice of the manufacturer) to the airbag switch-off for frontal airbags in combination with rearward-facing child restraint systems in the rear seat. GRSP also agreed to resume consideration (on the basis of accident data) of a proposal from the expert from Finland on the possibility to have three-point safety-belts in M2 and M3 categories of vehicles (GRSP-66-08). GRSP may also wish to consider a note from the Secretariat (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2021/16) aimed at correcting the information sheet (Certificate) in its paragraph 3.3.
