Proposals for amendments to Supplement 1 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 110 (Netherlands)
05 May 2014 Working Party Informal Documents Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I.

Concerns regarding proposed amendments to UN Regulation No. 58 (Sweden)

Rear Underrun Protective Devices (RUPDS) II. Vehicles with regard to the Installation of an RUPD of an Approved Type III. Vehicles with regard to their Rear Underrun Protection (RUP) Query concerning the intent of the proposed changes to the test procedures for rear underrun protection devices (RUPD). Sweden believes that the wording of the amendments proposed in document GRSG/2014/18 would change the nature of RUPD from being generic devices for installation across ranges of vehicle types to being vehicle-specific devices requiring repetitive testing for approval to be installed on a range of vehicles. Therefore, Sweden raises the question of whether this is the intent of the German proposal. GRSG-106-0040
