Session 107 | Geneva | 30 Sep-3 Oct 2014
2. Regulation No. 107 (M 2 and M 3 vehicles)
2. (a) Proposals for further amendments
GRSG/2014/22 | Proposal for amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to align Annex 11 of UN R107 with Regulation (EU) 1230/2012. Annex 11 was originally based on EU Directive 97/27 EC (type approval of vehicles with regard to their masses and dimensions) which has now been replaced by Regulation (EU) 1230/2012, thus prompting the need for realignment.
GRSG/2014/31 | Proposal for amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 The newly introduced systems to detect excessive temperatures and/or smoke enable the driver to act immediately to ensure the safety of the passengers. This implies the possibility of braking, stopping, or some other response which could impact other road users. Therefore, this proposal would require the hazard warning lights to be activated (which will require consideration by the WP.29 Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling Equipment). The proposal also proposes transitional provisions for the implementation of the new requirements.
GRSG-107-04 | Comments on the proposed amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 In document GRSG/2014/22, the EC proposes to align Annex 11 of UN R107 with Regulation (EU) 1230/2012 (type approval of vehicles with regard to their masses and dimensions). However, the volume and location of masses – including baggage masses – impacts many basic parameters of buses like total mass in running order, axle loads, CG position, etc. and related UN Regulations. This document raises issues for consideration during the review of the EC proposal.
GRSG-107-05 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 107 In document GRSG/2014/4, Hungary proposed to delete the provision that emergency windows shall be capable of being operated from outside the vehicle. This document provides a written justification for the proposal to enable its formal approval by GRSG.
GRSG-107-13 | Proposal for amendments to UN Regulation No. 107 Proposal by Germany to amend the Swedish proposal (document GRSG/2014/6) to introduce approval provisions for automatic fire suppression systems activated upon the detection of fire in the engine and/or heater compartment of buses and coaches. This proposal would limit mandatory installation to Class III vehicles.
GRSG-107-14 | Amendments to UN Regulation No. 107 OICA comments on the proposal to introduce fire suppression systems for buses and coaches upon detection of fire in the engine and/or heater compartment (document GRSG/2014/6).
GRSG-107-19 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to correct the calculation of total mass under the draft 05 and 06 series amendments intended to align Annex 11 of UN R107 with Regulation (EU) 1230/2012 (i.e., the amendments proposed in document GRSG/2014/22).
GRSG-107-25 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to introduce fire suppression systems for buses and coaches upon detection of fire in the engine and/or heater compartment, superseding document GRSG/2014/6.
GRSG-107-32 | Fire suppression systems Comments in support of the proposal to introduce provisions for fire-suppression systems under UN R107.
GRSG-107-33 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to revise the text of document GRSG-107-25 on fire suppression systems to ensure that the provisions can be applied fully to natural gas and/or hydrogen-powered vehicles.
WP.29/2014/70 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to a) introduce requirements to prevent accidents when the flap covering the engine compartment is open; b) clarify that “low-floor vehicles” concern only those vehicles that provide a single step from the ground onto the low floor area; c) prohibit any equipment that would counteract the intention of such single-step low-floor vehicles to facilitate access by passengers with reduced mobility; d) clarify the text of the amendments updating provisions for service doors, windows and emergency exits; e) delete the prohibition on the use of laminated glass or plastic material in window panes; f) delete the provision that emergency windows be operable from outside the vehicle; g) clarify that an “overnight locking system” is not intended to be operated from inside the vehicle; and h) align the Annex 12 safety prescriptions for trolley buses with current electrical standards.
WP.29/2014/77 | Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to introduce the automatic activation of hazard warning lights upon detection of excess temperatures in the engine and/or heater compartment. <i>A parallel proposal covering indicators and the hazard warning is being prepared by GRE. The package of GRSG and GRE proposals are expected for the March 2015 WP.29 session.</i>
WP.29/2014/76 | Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to introduce the automatic activation of the hazard warning lights upon detection of excess temperatures in the engine and/or heater compartment.
WP.29-164-05 | Withdrawal by GRSG of document WP.29/2014/76 Withdrawal of the proposal for Supplement 3 to the 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 concerning the automatic activation of hazard warning lights upon detection of excess temperatures in the engine and/or heater compartment.

2. (b) Requirements for service doors, windows and emergency exits
GRSG-107-05 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 107 In document GRSG/2014/4, Hungary proposed to delete the provision that emergency windows shall be capable of being operated from outside the vehicle.
