05 Dec 2014 Working Party Informal Documents Child Restraint Systems Child Restraint Systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Restraining Devices for Child Occupants of Power-driven Vehicles ("Child Restraint System") Text prepared by the UN R44 Technical Services Group to clarify the regulation, including test failure parameters, CRS displacement or locking systems, seat installation color coding systems, and use of load limiting devices. The test procedure would be modified, including an increase in the applied load to exceed the maximum allowed resistance to permit sliding of the strap through the quick adjuster and through rigid parts, increased tolerances related thereto, deletion of the option for shorter shift (deemed unnecessary since it is a test on the strap, not on the complete component), and modification of drawings to improve consistency with the text.

Proposal for Supplement 1 and for Supplement 1 to the 01 series of amendments to the UN Regulation on Pole Side Impact (OICA)
05 Dec 2014 Working Party Informal Documents Pole side-impact protection Pole Side Impact Uniform provisions concerning the approval of vehicles with regard to their Pole Side Impact performance (PSI) The scope of the new Global Technical Regulation on Pole Side Impact includes vehicles of category N1 (limited to GVM < 3.5 t) and vehicles of category M1 (without mass limit).
