Session 62 | Geneva | 1-3 Sep 2015
7. Regulation No. 117 (Tyre rolling resistance, rolling noise and wet grip)
GRB/2015/9 | Proposal for a new Regulation concerning the approval of quiet road transport vehicles
GRB-62-09 | Statistics of tyre noise label values in Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) tyres 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-62-11 | Proposal for amendments to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation 117 Proposal to increase the stringency of tyre noise limits from 1 November 2020.
GRB-62-11/Add.1 | Proposal for amendments to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation 117 (presentation) Presentation in support of the proposal to increase the stringency of tyre noise limits from 1 November 2020.
GRB-62-17 | Comments on tyre noise performance and proposal for higher stringecy ETRTO comments raising concerns over the validity of the Dutch dataset used to support the proposal for higher tyre-noise stringency.
GRRF/2015/27 | Proposal for amendment to Regulation No. 54 and Regulation No. 117 Proposal to modify the marking requirements to replace PSI with kilopascals ("kPa"). The intent is to harmonize the pressure indication and avoid confusion between UN Regulation No. 54 and US FMVSS 119 or FMVSS 139.
GRRF/2015/32 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 117 Proposal to: a) Align definitions and content with the other tyre regulations (UN Regulations Nos. 30, 54, 75 etc.); b) Include a definition of “manufacturer” extracted from the resolution “R.E.3”; c) Adopt a common definition and use of the terms “Manufacturer’s name”, “Brand name”, “Trademark”, “Trade description” and “Commercial name” and their links; and d) Add information in the certificate to enable approval authorities to more easily understand the products the certificate addresses.
