2.1. Report of the session of the Administrative Committee for the Coordination of Work (WP.29/AC.2)
WP.29-164-13 | Japanese position on the draft new UN Regulation on hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle safety In order for the proposed new UN Regulation transposing the GTR on hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles into the 1958 Agreement to be applicable in Japan, the regulation needs to make clear that its scope does not include (i) the electrical safety of electric power train, (ii) the material compatibility and hydrogen embrittlement of the vehicle fuel system and (iii) the post-crash fuel system integrity in the event of full width frontal impact and rear impact. This allows Japanese national regulations to be applied even when accepting a vehicle type-approved under the UN Regulation.

This document covers: amendments resulting from draft Revision 3; publication of new series of amendments; long transitional provisions; versions of UN Regulations; use of cross-references; amendment commencement dates; consolidation of amendments to once per year; and use of "compilations" of modifications.

Russia also supports a change in the voting procedure to require a 4/5ths majority to adopt a given motion.
WP.29-164-23 | Proposal to amend draft Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement Proposal to clarify the mutual recognition requirement of the draft revision of the 1958 Agreement. OICA views the clause that subjects the mutual recognition requirement to "any special provisions" contained within a given UN Regulation as potentially detrimental to the basic principles of uniformity and mutual recognition. The phrase was deemed necessary because such special provisions do exist; however, OICA proposes to revise the phrase ostensibly to avoid creating the impression that the use of such "special provisions" is routine (rather than exceptional) under the Agreement.
WP.29-164-30 | Draft declaration of the European Commission on the voting threshold under Revision 3 to the 1958 Agreement EC note welcoming the 4/5ths majority proposal by Australia, Japan, Malaysia and the Russian Federation as providing a good basis for EU internal discussions to determine an EU position on the voting threshold issue.

WP.29-164-13 | Japanese position on the draft new UN Regulation on hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle safety In order for the proposed new UN Regulation transposing the GTR on hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles into the 1958 Agreement to be applicable in Japan, the regulation needs to make clear that its scope does not include (i) the electrical safety of electric power train, (ii) the material compatibility and hydrogen embrittlement of the vehicle fuel system and (iii) the post-crash fuel system integrity in the event of full width frontal impact and rear impact.
