Statistics of tyre noise label values in Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) tyres (Netherlands and M+P)
24 Aug 2015 Working Party Informal Documents Tire Rolling Sound Emissions, Adhesion on Wet Surfaces, and Rolling Resistance Tire Noise, Wet Adhesion, and Rolling Resistance Uniform provisions concerning the approval of tyres with regard to rolling sound emissions and/or to adhesion on wet surfaces and/or to rolling resistance At the GRB meeting in January 2015 the Netherlands introduced a justification and proposal for future tyre noise limits (document GRB-61-03). During the discussion, it was suggested to investigate whether difference in performance existed between Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) tyres and replacement tyres, noting that the transitional provisions in EC/661/2009 take into account the earlier introduction of noise limits of OEM tyres mounted on new vehicle types. Therefore, the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and the Environment asked M+P to investigate the statistics of tyre noise label values in OEM tyres in more detail. GRB-62-0009

Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 51-03 (OICA)
24 Aug 2015 Working Party Informal Documents Vehicle Noise Emissions Vehicle Noise Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Motor Vehicles having at least Four Wheels with regard to their Noise Emissions Proposal to clarify the wording of the 03 series of amendments to UN R51 as adopted by the World Forum in June 2015 (document WP.29/2015/62). The adopted wording could lead to the interpretation that sound levels measured on the left side of the vehicle are mixed by calculation with sound levels measured on the right side of the vehicle. The proposed new wording clarifies that the overall sound emission is assessed individually per vehicle side. GRB-62-0019/Rev.1
