Session 76 | Geneva | 17-21 Feb 2014
3. Regulations Nos. 13 and 13-H (Braking)
3. (b) Automated Connections between Vehicles (ACV)
GRRF-76-29 | Proposed continuation of the work related to modular vehicle combinations Request from the chair of the former informal group on automated couplings between vehicles for a mandate to develop amendments to braking, steering, vehicle stability, couplings, and possibly other areas related to modular vehicle combinations either through a new working group or an existing one (e.g., the R55 informal group). The aim would be to enable type approval of components used in vehicle combinations.
3. (c) Clarifications
GRRF/2013/29 | Proposal for amendments to UN Regulation No. 13 Text prepared by Germany to clarify electrical braking system and energy supply line requirements with regard to towed trailers, including proposals for voltage specifications and inclusion of electro-hydraulic transmission devices within such systems. The text also seeks to align terminology with comparable paragraphs in other UN Regulations.
GRRF/2013/13 | Proposal for collective amendments - Regulation Nos. 13, 13-H, 79, 89, and the LDWS and AEBS regulations Proposal for collective amendments of amendments to Regulations Nos. 13 (Heavy vehicle braking), 13-H (Brakes of M1 and N1 vehicles), 79 (Steering equipment) and 89 (Speed limitation devices) and the new Regulations on LDWS and AEBS to clarify the references to Regulation No. 10 into the UN Regulations mentioned above.
GRRF-76-24 | Report on the status of work on the issue of electro-hydraulic systems Status report, including the current state of the draft text, on efforts to reach agreement on the introduction of provisions for electro-hydraulic systems into the test conditions for trailers with electrical braking systems.
GRRF/2004/11 | Proposal for a draft amendment to Regulation No. 13 Proposal to introduce new requirements for trailers braked by an inertia (overrun) braking system.
3. (d) Braking symbols in Regulation No. 121 (Identification of controls, tell-tales and indicators)
GRRF/2014/7 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 13 Proposal of the ad hoc expert group on transitional provisions to clarify and update these terms within the heavy braking regulation, including provisions for extensions of type approvals granted according to the antecedent requirements of the original approval. These amendments also relate to the transfer of brake-related telltale provisions to UN R121.
GRRF/2014/16 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 13-H Proposal of the ad hoc expert group on transitional provisions to clarify and update these terms within the light braking regulation, including provisions for extensions of type approvals granted according to the antecedent requirements of the original approval. These amendments also relate to the transfer of brake-related telltale provisions to UN R121.
GRRF-76-02 | Regulation 13: Transitional Provisions Presentation of the recommendations (see document GRRF/2014/7) of the expert group reviewing the transitional provisions of UN R13 pursuant to the decision to transfer the provisions on the electronic stability control (ESC) warning signal to UN R121 on controls and tell-tales. UN R13 contains 23 transitional provisions introduced to allow manufacturers to adapt to changes that have been made to the rule over time. The ad hoc expert group was formed to streamline these provisions by removing obsolete provisions and by applying uniform language.
GRRF-76-04 | Regulation 13-H: Transitional Provisions Presentation of the recommendations (see document GRRF/2014/16) of the expert group reviewing the transitional provisions of UN R13-H pursuant to the decision to transfer the provisions on the electronic stability control (ESC) warning signal to UN R121 on controls and tell-tales. UN R13 contains eight transitional provisions (five of which are obsolete) introduced to allow manufacturers to adapt to changes that have been made to the rule over time. The ad hoc expert group was formed to streamline these provisions by removing obsolete provisions and by applying uniform language.
GRRF-76-30 | Proposal for addendum to document GRRF/2014/16 (UN R13-H transitional provisions) Correction of errors in the proposal of the ad hoc expert group on transitional provisions to clarify and update these terms within the light braking regulation, including provisions for extensions of type approvals granted according to the antecedent requirements of the original approval. These amendments also relate to the transfer of brake-related telltale provisions to UN R121. The proposal notes the deletion of two pictograms referencing electronic stability controls (ESC).
3. (e) Other business
GRRF-76-20 | Proposal for amendment to Regulation No. 13 Proposal to clarify and align the text of UN R13 on heavy-duty braking with that of UN R107 on bus construction with regard to the exemption of articulated buses and coaches from the requirements for vehicle stability equipment. The text would specify that "Class I, Class A and articulated vehicles of categories M2 and M3" are exempted from the requirements.
GRRF-76-21 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 13 Proposal to remove all references to Annex 10 from Annex 13 by transferring the provisions concerning vehicles with and without anti-lock braking systems to Annex 10.
GRRF-76-31 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 13 Proposal to delete the contents of Annex 9 on parking brake systems equipped with a mechanical brake-cylinder locking device due to obsolescence.
GRRF-76-09 | Consolidated draft revision 8 of Regulation No. 13 Complete draft of the new version of the regulation on heavy-duty braking prepared by the GRRF secretariat. This text includes Supplement 10 which clarifies the requirements in Annex 21 of UN R13 on the use of EVSC simulation, corrects a “copy and paste” mistake concerning a signature requirement made when copying text from Annex 11 into Annex 12, Appendix 4, and harmonizes UN R13 with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard FMVSS 135 on electric vehicle requirements with regard to the regenerative braking system (RBS).
12. (b) Revision and extension of approvals
GRRF/2013/31 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulations Nos. 13, 13-H, 30, 54, 55, 78, 79, and 90 Text prepared by the International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers (OICA) to introduce the concept of "revision of approvals" into the UN Regulations under GRRF responsibility in order to align the UN Regulations with the EU Whole Vehicle Type Approval Directive 2007/46/EC in order to ease the administrative burden for both manufacturers and approval administrations regarding the extension of existing approvals.
