Proposal to clarify the need to apply, when relevant, the Type IIA test in Annex 15 for alternative brake lining purposes (e.g., in the case of vehicles with regenerative braking for Type IIA endurance test purposes to use the friction brake as an alternative to the regular endurance brake).
Proposal from GRSG to clarify the scope of the UN Regulation and to complement the text with the missing Supplement 7 to the original version of UN R116.
Proposal to increase the maximum operational speed to 130 km/h, add lane-change and minimal risk manoeuvre provisions, responsiveness to emergency vehicles, and introduce data collection specifications.
Proposal from GRSP to align UN R12 with the provisions of GTR 20 on post-crash electrical safety and the administrative provisions of Revision 3 to the 1958 Agreement. The amendments only impact the approval of vehicles with an electric power train operating at high voltage.
Proposal to improve evacuation times of M2 and M3 vehicles, including new provisions for devices to break window glass.
Proposal to introduce provisions for ice grip tyres, clarify provisions on Conformity of Production, sample submissions, and testing methods, and to make editorial corrections and improvements.
