GRSP/2014/17 27 Nov 2014 Working Party Pedestrian Safety Pedestrian Safety (GTR) Global Technical Regulation No. 9: Pedestrian Safety Proposal from the Bumper Test Area Task Force to revise the procedure for determining the bumper test area under the pedestrian safety regulation. This proposal corrects shortcomings in the current definitions which could lead to a narrower test area than intended (leading to less effective pedestrian protection). This proposal does not take into account potentially harmful hard structures such as bumper beams that may lie behind the outer contour or front fascia extending beyond the defined bumper corners as consensus within the task force could not be reached.

GRSP/2014/18 24 Sep 2014 Working Party Safety-Belt and ISOFIX Anchorages Safety-Belt/ISOFIX Anchorages Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to Safety-belt Anchorages, ISOFIX Anchorages Systems and ISOFIX Top Tether Anchorages Germany submitted a proposal that would require at least one set of ISOFIX anchorages in single-row vehicles (which are currently exempted under UN R14). This proposal (superseding GRSP-55-31) would set a minimum R-point criteria for requiring the ISOFIX anchorages and thus exempt vehicles with R-points below this minimum height. The purpose is to exempt sport vehicles not intended to carry small children requiring child seats from the ISOFIX requirement. GRSP/2014/0018

GRSP/2014/31 27 Nov 2014 Working Party Pedestrian Safety Pedestrian Safety Uniform provisions concerning the approval of motor vehicles with regard to their pedestrian safety performance Proposal from the Bumper Test Area Task Force to revise the procedure for determining the bumper test area under the pedestrian safety regulation. This proposal corrects shortcomings in the current definitions which could lead to a narrower test area than intended (leading to less effective pedestrian protection). This proposal does not take into account potentially harmful hard structures such as bumper beams that may lie behind the outer contour or front fascia extending beyond the defined bumper corners as consensus within the task force could not be reached. Presented as a Supplement, the proposal includes a September 2017 transition date in case GRSP determines that the changes should be put into a new series of amendments rather than as a supplement.
