Session 167 | Geneva | 10-13 Nov 2015
UN R16 Safety belt systemsWP.29/2015/93 | Proposal to specify buckle-release color, use of buckle warning lights, and to clarify the installation provisions for “general use” safety-belts (Annex 1B, item 12). 16 27 10471 633
UN R12 Steering MechanismWP.29/2015/92 | Pursuant to GRPE work on vehicle propulsion system definitions (VPSD informal group; see document WP.29-165-17), this GRSP proposal would update the definition of the acronym “REESS” to refer to “rechargeable electrical energy storage system” across the passive safety regulations and currently proposed texts that make use of this acronym. (REESS had previously referred generically to “rechargeable energy storage systems”.) 12 22 10470 633
UN R85 Net Power MeasurementWP.29/2015/102 | Proposal to avoid a redundant correction of the measured engine power of supercharged and turbocharged engines fitted with a self-correcting system for ambient conditions such as temperature and altitude. The current correction factor may yield inaccurate results for such configurations. 85 96 10480 633
UN R94 Frontal Collision ProtectionWP.29/2015/95 | Proposal to align UN R94 with the draft amendment to add camera-monitor systems to UN R46 (i.e., document WP.29/2015/84). 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 This proposal would extend the same treatment where the mirror has been replaced by an exterior camera. 94 105 10473 633
UN R94 Frontal Collision ProtectionWP.29/2015/96 | Proposal to amend the regulation frontal impacts with a view towards the establishment of a new regulation on frontal impact testing for occupant restraint systems (full width rigid barrier test). The proposal increases the thorax compression criterion (ThCC) stringency to 42 mm (from 50 mm), clarifies vehicle width definition, and amends REESS acronym definition. 94 105 10474 633
UN R95 Lateral Collision ProtectionWP.29/2015/97 | Pursuant to GRPE work on vehicle propulsion system definitions (VPSD informal group; see document WP.29-165-17), this proposal would update the definition of the acronym “REESS” to refer to “rechargeable electrical energy storage system” across the passive safety regulations and currently proposed texts that make use of this acronym. (REESS had previously referred generically to “rechargeable energy storage systems”.) 95 106 10475 633
UN R97 Vehicle AlarmsWP.29/2015/87 | Proposal as approved by the GRSG to delete provisions regarding the optical display of the status of the vehicle alarm system outside the passenger compartment in order to avoid driver distraction by and/or confusion of such exterior lighting with primary lighting and signaling equipment required under UN R48. 97 108 10431 633
UN R98 Gas-discharge-light HeadlampsWP.29/2015/80 | This is a proposal to introduce a new HID category (D9S) into Regulation No. 99 with dual-level operation, i.e. with two defined wattage values and corresponding luminous flux values. This new category (D9S) is the first light source in R99 that has two defined power levels. When this dual-level light source is used in a headlamp which is being approved according to Regulation No. 98, the testing and approval provisions must be clearly defined in this Regulation to avoid misinterpretation. Therefore, it is proposed to amend the relevant paragraphs of Regulation No. 98 to take into account the multi-level aspects of D9S and possible future multi-level light sources in Regulation No. 99. 98 109 10415 633
UN R90 Replacement Brake ComponentsWP.29/2015/81 | Proposal to introduce a new category, ‘D9S’. 90 101 10489 633
UN R100 Electric Powertrain VehiclesWP.29/2015/98 | Pursuant to GRPE work on vehicle propulsion system definitions (VPSD informal group; see document WP.29-165-17), this proposal would update the definition of the acronym “REESS” to refer to “rechargeable electrical energy storage system” across the passive safety regulations and currently proposed texts that make use of this acronym. (REESS had previously referred generically to “rechargeable energy storage systems”.) 100 111 10476 633
UN R101 CO2 Emissions/Fuel ConsumptionWP.29/2015/103 | Proposal to align the tyre-selection criteria in the CO2 emissions/fuel consumption tests under UN R101 with those for pollutant emissions (UN R83). 101 112 10482 633
UN R106 Agricultural TiresWP.29/2015/109 | Pursuant to the addition of a new speed symbol for forestry tyres, this proposal would add a bonus loads column for A6-rated tyres to Annex 7-Part D. The proposal also corrects the tables concerning “Agricultural implement tyres – Normal section sizes”. 106 117 10486 633
UN R107 Coach and Bus ConstructionWP.29/2015/104 | 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. 107 118 10483 633
UN R107 Coach and Bus ConstructionWP.29/2015/88 | Proposal to introduce mandatory requirements for fire suppression systems for Class III buses and coaches (and optional requirements for other classes) activated upon detection of fire in the engine and/or heater compartment. This proposal also extends the treatment of rear-view mirrors to any camera-monitor systems used in place of rear-view mirrors. 107 118 10425 633
UN R110 CNG/LNG System ComponentsWP.29/2015/89 | Proposal to correct the numbering of chapter 18 following the introduction of provisions for automatic valves. 110 121 10433 633
UN R116 Anti-theft and Alarm SystemsWP.29/2015/91 | Proposal as approved by the GRSG to delete provisions regarding the optical display of the status of the vehicle alarm system outside the passenger compartment in order to avoid driver distraction by and/or confusion of such exterior lighting with primary lighting and signaling equipment required under UN R48. 116 127 10430 633
UN R127 Pedestrian SafetyWP.29/2015/99 | Proposal from the Bumper Test Area Task Force to revise the procedure for determining the bumper test area under the pedestrian safety regulation. The proposal introduces a “bumper beam” method for determining the test area and includes a 31 December 2017 transition date. 127 148 10477 633
UN R137 Frontal Impact ORSWP.29/2015/105 | Proposal to establish a new UN Regulation on uniform provisions for the approval of passenger cars with regard to their occupant-restraint system performance in the event of a frontal collision (full width rigid barrier test). <i>Please note: para. 5.2.8.2. should read 5 liters, not 0.5 liters maximum allowable electrolyte spillage.</i> 137 204 10484 633
UN R137 Frontal Impact ORSWP.29/2015/106 | Proposal to increase the stringency of the Thorax Compression Criterion (ThCC) for the Hybrid III 5th female dummy in the passenger seat to 34 mm under the proposed new regulation to test the performance of occupant restraint systems in the event of a frontal collision. The transition date would be 1 September 2020. 137 204 10485 633
