60th GRPE session (7-11
46. The Secretary of the informal group on Fuel Quality (FQ) briefed GRPE about the outcome of the third joint IPIECA/OICA meeting held in Washington in April 2010. He reported on the conclusions by the FQ group at its sixth meeting, held on 9 June 2010 (GRPE-60-13). GRPE noted that the discussion on the market fuel quality parameters was close to an agreement.
47. GRPE agreed with the conclusions of the informal group and invited both organizations IPIECA and OICA to conclude, at a further joint meeting, (i) on the final list of parameters for Euro 2 to Euro 4 emissions levels, (ii) to set up draft recommendations including an explanatory text for the use of the recommendation and (iii) to submit it to WP.29 for consideration at its November 2010 session.
48. The GRPE Chairman announced his intention to inform WP.29 about the status at its June 2010 session. Regarding a possible extension of the mandate of the informal group on FQ, he recommended to reconsider this issue at the next session of GRPE in January 2011, depending on the final proposal by IPIECA/OICA. In this respect, he invited all experts to think about their preference on a possible extension of the informal group’s mandate (e.g. inclusion of market fuel quality parameters for gaseous fuels, biofuels, etc.).
