Session 108 | Geneva | 4-8 May 2015
GRSG-108-32
Draft amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 58 and 73 (UK)
04 May 2015 Working Party Informal Documents Rear Underrun Protection Devices Rear Underrun Protection Devices Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Rear Underrun Protective Devices (RUPDS) II. Vehicles with regard to the Installation of an RUPD of an Approved Type III. Vehicles with regard to their Rear Underrun Protection (RUP) Commercial Vehicle Lateral Protection CV Lateral Protection Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Goods Vehicles, Trailers and Semi-Trailers with regard to their Lateral Protection UN Regulations Nos. 58 and 73 contain exemptions which can be applied by an approval authority and we are concerned that a vehicle which is correctly approved using such an exemption cannot then be required to have an RUPD or sideguards. The UK seeks the views of GRSG on how the wording of the exemptions may be improved to ensure that as many vehicles as possible are fitted with RUPD and sideguards. GRSG-108-0032
