Proposal for Supplement 7 to Regulation No. 85 (OICA)
06 Dec 2014 Working Party Informal Documents Power Measurement of Internal Combustion Engines and Electric Motors Net Power Measurement Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Internal Combustion Engines or Electric Drive Trains Intended for the Propulsion of Motor Vehicles of Categories M and N with regard to the Measurement of the Net Power and the Maximum 30 Minutes Power of Electric Drive Trains The purpose of this proposal is to adjust the engine power-measurement calculation for supercharged and turbocharged engines fitted with a system that compensates for ambient conditions such as temperature and altitude. The proposed change would eliminate redundant correction factors that result in inaccurate results for these engine configurations. GRPE-70-0002

Proposal to amend the draft proposal for amendments to UN Regulation No. 49 (OICA)
15 Jan 2015 Working Party Informal Documents Diesel and CNG/LNG Engine Emissions Diesel/CNG/LNG Engine Emissions Uniform provisions concerning the measures to be taken against the emission of gaseous and particulate pollutants from compression-ignition engines and positive ignition engines for use in vehicles This proposal aligns the transitional provisions of Revision 6 of UN Regulation 49 and thus in document GRPE/2014/3 with the General Guidelines for UN Regulations (WP.29/1044/Rev.1). This change requires changes to Table 1 of Annex 3 to cover diesel and dual-fuel engines bearing the letter B. The proposal also would allow for methods other than monitoring the reagent tank level or reagent flow in order to monitor reagent consumption in Annex 11. GRPE-70-0006/Rev.1
