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
WP.29-162-03 07 Feb 2014 World Forum Pedestrian Safety Pedestrian Safety (GTR) Global Technical Regulation No. 9: Pedestrian 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.29-162-0003

Proposal for Supplement 3 to Regulation No. 129
WP.29/2014/33 31 Dec 2013 World Forum Enhanced Child Restraint Systems Enhanced Child Restraints Regulation on uniform provisions concerning the approval of enhanced Child Restraint Systems used onboard of motor vehicles. This supplement concerns child restraint systems comprised of a base fixture to which a portable shell can be attached. The base fixture is attached to the vehicle by the ISOFIX anchorages in the seating position and the shell attached to the base. However, since the shells may also be designed for use without the base fixture in a configuration where the shell is secured by the adult safety belt of the seating position, this supplement would enable type approvals under UN R129 for this configuration.
