GRSG/2013/23 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 46 Proposal to clarify the provisions on the extended field of vision on heavy goods vehicles across different mirror classes. The text would require assessment of normal and extended fields of vision using a single mirror adjustment and to allow for the loss of up to 10% of the close-proximity field of vision in such configurations.
GRSG-105-17 | Comments on the proposal to revise field-of-vision requirements under Regulation No. 46 OICA raises a series of questions concerning the Japanese proposal (document GRSG/2013/5) to add field-of-vision provisions to enhance the safety of pedestrians and other vulnerable road users in narrow alleys and by-streets and other improvements to Regulation No. 46.

The text would require assessment of normal and extended fields of vision using a single mirror adjustment and to allow for the loss of up to 10% of the close-proximity field of vision in such configurations. The UK proposes to add the word “simultaneously” in several places to confirm that the mirror can not be re-adjusted during the approval test in order to meet the extended field of view requirements.
GRSG-105-28 | Proposal for draft amendments to Regulation No. 46 Proposal to require automatic mirrors to unfold automatically when the vehicle reaches a speed higher than 10 km/h. The concern is to address certain mirrors designed not to unfold at speeds up to 45 km/h.
GRSG-105-27 | Proposal to re-establish the Informal Group on Camera-Monitor Systems The informal group on camera-monitor systems (CMS) produced a proposal to enable the use of CMS as an alternative to conventional mirrors (document GRSG/2011/23/Rev.1).

In principle, current displays can convey more information to the driver, including levels of severity or importance, while the current text was written when technologies were less flexible. As a result, the current provisions risk impeding the use of beneficial multi-function tell-tales.
GRSG-105-30 | Proposal for amendments to document WP.29/2012/30 concerning Regulation No. 121 Proposal developed by the GRSG chair, OICA, and the UK to align the transitional provisions of the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 121 (document WP.29/2012/30, presently pending before WP.29 and awaiting parallel amendments from the GRRF for UN R13 and 13-H) with those of UN R13 and 13-H.
