16.1. Guidance on elements of draft GTR No. 9 – Phase 2 that have not been resolved by the Working Party on Passive Safety
WP.29-162-03 | Guidance, by consensus decision on elements of draft GTR No. 9 – Phase 2 that have not been resolved by the Working Party on Passive Safety Phase 2 of GTR No. includes proposals for injury assessment reference values (IARV). The United States has asserted that the IARV have not been sufficiently validated through cost-benefit analysis, which is a requirement in US rulemaking. Therefore, the US has proposed to permit regulators to select IARV that correspond to their local vehicle populations. However, adding this qualification (through a footnote) would create a precedent for future GTR and OICA has lamented that such diversity in application hampers the goal of harmonization. Therefore, the GTR 9 informal group and GRSP are putting this issue before the World Forum for guidance.

WP.29-162-03 | Guidance, by consensus decision on elements of draft GTR No. 9 – Phase 2 that have not been resolved by the Working Party on Passive Safety Phase 2 of GTR No. includes proposals for injury assessment reference values (IARV). The United States has asserted that the IARV have not been sufficiently validated through cost-benefit analysis, which is a requirement in US rulemaking. Therefore, the US has proposed to permit regulators to select IARV that correspond to their local vehicle populations. However, adding this qualification (through a footnote) would create a precedent for future GTR and OICA has lamented that such diversity in application hampers the goal of harmonization. Therefore, the GTR 9 informal group and GRSP are putting this issue before the World Forum for guidance.
GRSP-54-32 | US comments on the draft amendment [2] to Global Technical Regulation No. 9 on pedestrian safety Statement of US concerns with the draft amendment to introduce the Flex PLI test tool into GTR No. 9 (document GRSP/2013/25) in particular with regard to the use of the injury assessment reference values (IARVs). US definition of the IARV will be dependent upon the outcome of a US cost-benefit analysis based upon the characteristics of the American vehicle population. The US cannot accept injury curves that do not fall within what is justifiable according to US traffic conditions.

17.10. Draft GTR No. 15 (Worldwide harmonized Light vehicle Test Procedures (WLTP) – Phase 1(b))
WP.29/2014/30 | Proposal for the development of amendments to GTR No. [15] on the Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedures (WLTP) Proposal for a further "phase 1b" in the development of the GTR on light vehicle emissions. In order to meet Contracting Party objectives, the draft GTR has been submitted for adoption by the Forum in March 2014. Although the current draft offers a complete test cycle, the WLTP experts want to improve the regulation by further addressing a number of technical elements that were set aside due to time and resource constraints.
