Session 108 | Geneva | 4-8 May 2015
2. (a) Proposals for further amendments
GRSG/2014/6/Rev.1 | Proposal for a Supplement to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 (with track changes) Proposal to introduce fire suppression systems for buses and coaches upon detection of fire in the engine and/or heater compartment.
GRSG-108-10 | Statistical information about fires in different bus categories and classes
GRSG-108-14 | Draft brochure as part of coordinated information campaign for UN Regulation No. 129
GRSG-108-16 | Proposal for amendments to UN Regulation No. 107 Proposal to clarify the requirements concerning the height of steps in vehicles which comply with Annex 8.
GRSG-108-35 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to redefine the measurement criteria for determining appropriate seat spacing in order to address observed cases where adequate spacing is not achieved even though the current criteria are fulfilled. The type approval authorities of the member states of the European Union (TAAM) discussed the proper interpretation of the text of the Regulation in the case of seats with a central recess (sunken area) and decided that the text of the Regulation needed to be modified in order to provide an adequate method to measure the H dimension.
GRSG-108-31 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 107 Incident reports confirm that occupants of exposed seats have been thrown forward during heavy braking or vehicle impact conditions, often sustaining head injuries from contact with the vehicle floor or other hard structure. Seats particularly affected are those located immediately to the rear of an open wheelchair or buggy space. This proposal aims to reduce this risk by extending existing requirements for exposed seats adjacent to step wells to apply to other exposed seats where there is a risk of the occupant being thrown forward.
GRSG-108-45 | Comments on the proposed supplement to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 107 OICA concerns regarding 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/Rev.1).
GRSG-108-51 | Proposal for a Supplement to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 107 Text of the proposal for fire suppression systems prepared by the Secretariat and incorporating documents GRSG/2015/6/Rev.1 and GRSG-108-45 as agreed by the GRSG during its 108th session.
2. (b) Requirements for service doors, windows and emergency exits
GRSG/2015/18 | Proposal for amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal for a new paragraph 7.6.5.2. in Annex 3 to clarify that deactivation of emergency controls at speeds lower than 5 km/h should be permitted taking into consideration that the opening in emergency is ensured according to the provisions of paragraph 7.6.5.1. Paragraph 7.6.5.2. is renumbered and amended to correct the speed at which the control has to be reactivated. The amended paragraphs align the requirements to those on overnight-locking systems.
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.
5. Regulation No. 46 (Devices for indirect vision)
GRSG/2015/2 | Proposal for a draft Supplement to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 Proposal by the Informal Group on Camera-Monitor Systems (IGCMS-II) to introduce the optional replacement of mirrors of Classes I to IV by camera-monitor systems.
GRSG/2015/8 | Proposal for the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 125 Proposal to modify UN R125 in line with the proposed amendment to UN R46 (indirect vision) that introduces the use of camera-monitor systems (CMS) in place of rear-view mirrors (i.e., document GRSG/2015/2). This proposal is part of a package of proposals to amend the UN Regulations impacted by the amendment to UN R46 and would extend the provisions for rear-view mirrors to CMS devices.
GRSG/2015/9 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 10 Proposal to align UN Regulation No. 10 with the proposed amendments to Regulation No. 46 (document GRSG/2015/2) to enable the replacement rear-view mirrors by camera-monitor systems. This proposal is also subject to the consent of the Working Party on Lighting and Light-Signalling (GRE).
GRSG/2015/10 | Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 26 Proposal to treat camera-monitor systems the same as rear-view mirrors under UN R26 in view of the amendment to UN R46 to enable the replacement of rear-view mirrors by CMS (i.e., document GRSG/2015/2).
GRSG/2015/11 | Proposal for Supplement 3 to Regulation No. 61 Proposal to ensure that all devices for indirect vision, including exterior cameras, are covered by UN R61. This proposal is part of a package of proposals to update various regulations impacted by the proposed amendment to enable the replacement of rear-view mirrors by camera-monitor systems.
GRSG/2015/12 | Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 79 Proposal to adapt UN R79 in line with the proposed addition of camera-monitor systems to UN R46 (indirect vision). UN R79 refers to external mirrors in test procedures involving the vehicle turning circle. This proposal replaces the reference to mirrors with a broader reference to "indirect vision devices" that includes CMS.
GRSG/2015/13 | Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 94 Proposal to align UN R94 with the draft amendment to add camera-monitor systems to UN R46 (i.e., document GRSG/2015/2). Under UN R94, the measurement for the 40% overlap between the vehicle and crash barrier excludes external rear-view mirrors. This proposal would extend the same treatment where the mirror has been replaced by an exterior camera.
GRSG/2015/14 | Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 UN R107 includes a provision to prevent a folding seat used by the crew from obstructing the view of the exterior rear-view mirror. In light of the proposed amendment to introduce camera-monitor systems into UN R46 (indirect vision), this proposal would extend the same treatment to CMS used in the place of rear view mirrors.
GRSG-108-17/Rev.1 | Proposal for the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 (revised) Proposal to exclude M and N1 vehicles from the close-proximity field of vision requirements pursuant to the establishment of the international whole vehicle type approval system.
GRSG-108-21 | Proposal to amend the draft Supplement to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 Amendments from the CMS II informal group to the draft provisions that would allow the optional replacement of mirrors of Classes I to IV by camera-monitor systems.
GRSG-108-22 | Proposal to amend the draft Supplement to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 Proposal to add information reporting requirements for type approval of camera-monitor systems of classes I to IV to the proposal for a Supplement to the 04 series of amendments to UN R46 (document GRSG/2015/2).
GRSG-108-23 | Report from the informal group on Camera-Monitor Systems (IGCMS-II) to GRSG
GRSG-108-24 | Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 This proposal aims to clarify that surveillance mirrors can be mounted below 2 meters from the ground when integrated in a housing including one or several mirrors of classes II or III.
GRSG-108-26 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 10 Document GRSG/2015/9 would amend the provisions of UN R10 on electromagnetic compatibility to include camera-monitor devices newly defined under UN R46. This proposal aims to clarify that the amendment applies only to regulated devices for indirect vision (UN R46) so as not to be confused with other devices for indirect vision already included within the scope of UN R10.
GRSG-108-25 | Proposal for the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 125 Document GRSG/2015/8 proposes to amend the provisions on forward field of vision of drivers in UN R125 to promote and to support the installation of camera-monitor devices on vehicles of category M1. This proposal would clarify that the amendment only applies to regulated devices for indirect vision.
GRSG-108-46/Rev.1 | Proposal for a draft Supplement to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 Consolidated revised version of UN R46 introducing provisions prepared by the Informal Group on Camera-Monitor Systems (IGCMS-II) to introduce the optional replacement of mirrors of Classes I to IV by camera-monitor systems.
GRSG-108-46/Rev.2 | Adopted proposal for a draft Supplement to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 Consolidated revised version of UN R46 as approved by the GRSG during its 108th session to introduce the optional replacement of mirrors of Classes I to IV by camera-monitor systems.
