This document covers: amendments resulting from draft Revision 3; publication of new series of amendments; long transitional provisions; versions of UN Regulations; use of cross-references; amendment commencement dates; consolidation of amendments to once per year; and use of "compilations" of modifications.
4.2.3. Transposition of UN GTR No. 15 into a UN Regulation on WLTP
WP.29-167-20 | Transposition of the WLTP GTR into a UN Regulation Discussion paper concerning the transposition of GTR 15 into a UN Regulation. The paper raises two possible routes: 1) a UN Regulation identical to EU legislation but that would not be not applied (in its entirety as a distinct rule) outside the EU; 2) a "hierarchical" UN Regulation that combines all elements of all emissions thresholds at their most stringent level with lower levels of approval corresponding to regional/national requirements. The EC proposes option 2 as this would allow for a global rule where Contracting Parties could certify systems to standards outside their markets (e.g., Japan could issue approvals to EU standards and vice versa) under the UN Regulation.

WP.29-167-08 | Proposal to amend Paragraph 5.1.2. of the draft UN Regulation No. 0 Proposal to address a possible situation where a whole vehicle type approval is issued based upon an earlier version of a regulation where the latest version of that regulation has been narrowed or requirements of the earlier version have been made optional in the later version.
4.4. Consideration of draft Revision 3 to the 1958 Agreement
WP.29/2015/40 | Proposal for Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement Proposed text, updated to reflect discussions at the June 2014 WP.29 session, to revise and update the 1958 Agreement pursuant to the project to establish an international whole vehicle type approval system.

WP.29/2015/79 | Proposal for Corrigendum 1 to Supplement 8 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 74 Proposal to correct the omission of front position lamp (color: white) from paragraph 5.13. specifying the color of lights referred to in the regulation in the previous Supplement 8. On the request of Office of Legal Affairs, this document was issued as Supplement 9 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 74 replacing the proposal for a Corrigendum1 to Supplement 8 to the 01 series as approved by WP.29. at its 167th session.
4.6.2. Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 98
WP.29/2015/80 | Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 98 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.
