11. UN Regulation No. 17
GRSP/2015/14 | Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 08 series of amendments to Regulation No. 17 Proposal to expand the application area of the energy absorption criteria for seating in order to facilitate the optimization of seat-belt load limiters by allowing limited occupant contact with these seat areas.
GRSP/2015/27 | Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 08 series of amendments to Regulation No. 17 Proposal to expand the application area of the energy absorption criteria for seating in order to facilitate the optimization of seat-belt load limiters by allowing limited occupant contact with these seat areas.
GRSP-58-28/Rev.1 | Proposal for the 09 series of amendments to Regulation No. 17 Proposal of draft text to transpose GTR No. 7 (head restraints) into UN R17, including the draft Amendment 1 to GTR 7 addressing use of the BioRID II test dummy, backset measurement method revision, and new head restraint height thresholds.
GRSP/2015/18 | Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to clarify UN R16 provisions for the dynamic testing of rear seat systems, advanced restraint system approval and transitional provisions.
12. UN Regulation No. 21
GRSP/2015/28 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 21 Changes to NCAP testing oblige the use of load limiters on safety-belts with lower threshold values that yield less thorax compression but also allow for greater forward displacement of the occupants. To address the greater forward displacement of rear occupants, UN R17 is under revision to require more stringent energy dissipation performance for those areas of the rear of seats (including the head restraints and parts mounted on the seat) where the head of the rear occupant may come into contact. UN R21 allows for alternative testing of the rear parts of seats (paras. 5.7-5.7.3. ) However, in light of the changes to UN R17, this alternative approach is no longer valid. This proposal would delete the alternate method and expands the scope of UN R21 to include testing of any parts mounted on the seats.
13. UN Regulation No. 22
14. UN Regulation No. 25
GRSP/2015/22 | Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 25 The provisions of UN Regulation No. 16 (paragraph 6.4.1.4.1.) only allow contact of the chest of the dummy driver with the steering assembly, provided that this contact fulfils certain energy-dissipation test requirements and that contact does not occur at a speed higher than 24 km/h. In response to the updated provisions of UN Regulation No. 16 which allow greater forward displacement of occupants, UN Regulation No. 17 will be updated to provide requirements on improved energy-dissipation criteria for those areas of the rear of seats and head restraints where impact of the head of the rear occupant may occur. Given the update to UN R17, this proposal would amend the scope of UN R25 (which has not been updated with regard to energy dissipation) to cover only vehicle categories M2 < 3.5 tons and N1 and mention explicitly that application to N2 and N3 vehicle categories is optional.
15. UN Regulation No. 44
GRSP/2015/32 | Proposal for Supplement 11 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to limit the use of a booster cushion (booster seat without backrest) with children of a stature greater than 125 cm and the application for type approval of such CRS only in mass Group III for children of mass from 22 kg to 36 kg. The proposal is submitted on behalf of the CRS informal working group.
GRSP/2015/33 | Proposal for Supplement 11 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to clarify that a guide strap which constrains the shoulder strap of the adult seat belt in a position to suit the child in a child restraint system cannot be approved as a separate CRS under UN R44.
GRSP-58-16/Rev.1 | Proposal for Supplement 11 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to amend the toxicity and flammability declarations via references to EN71 (European safety standards).
GRSP-58-22 | Status report of the CRS informal group
GRSP-58-23 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulation Nos. 44 and 129 Proposal to introduce test procedures from the US FMVSS 302 with regard to the burning behavior/flammability of materials used in child restraint systems. The proposal requests a GRSP decision on the maximum burn rate limit.
GRSP-58-25 | Toxicity and Flammability Requirements in Child Restraint Systems Regulations UN Regulations Nos. 44 and 129 Presentation in support of the proposal (document GRSP-58-16) to amend the toxicity and flammability declarations via references to EN71.
GRSP-58-27 | Proposal of symbol for height limit usage of booster cushion without backrest Proposal for pictogram label to indicate that booster cushions without a backrest are only suitable for children between 125 and 150 cm tall while boosters with a backrest may be used for children from 105 cm tall.
GRSP-58-09 | Proposal for a new series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to strip ISOFIX CRS provisions from UN R44 and to <u>cease all new type approvals for CRS under UN R44 from November 2016</u> in deference to UN R129 on Enhanced CRS.
GRSP-58-10 | Presentation in support of the proposal to remove ISOFIX from UN R44 and cease new UN R44 approvals
16. UN Regulation No. 80
GRSP/2015/23 | Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 80 In response to proposals to allow greater forward displacement of occupants under UN R16 and the resulting changes in impact energy-dissipation criteria under UN R17, UN R25 (with regard to head restraints) is also subject to change. This proposal would accordingly update a reference in UN R80 to UN R25.
17. UN Regulation No. 94
GRSP-58-02 | Proposal for corrigendum 3 to Revision 1 to Regulation No. 94 (Russian only) Correction of a typo in the test speed of the Russian-language version of the regulation. The text should read 56 km/h rather than 50.
18. UN Regulation No. 127
19. UN Regulation No. 129
GRSP/2015/24 | Proposal for the 01 series of amendments to Phase 1 of Regulation No. 129 Revised version of the proposal (formal document GRSP/2015/9 ) to extend the scope of UN Regulation No. 129 to include non-Integral child restraint systems (“Universal Booster” or “Specific to vehicle Booster”). This version includes all corrections to the text made by the Informal Working Group on Child Restraint Systems through its September session. (The CRS informal group will discuss this version during its October session.)
GRSP/2015/29 | Proposal for Supplement 5 to Regulation No. 129 Proposal to introduce an integral fixture for lateral (lie flat, carry cot) child restraint systems.
GRSP/2015/31 | Proposal for the 02 series of amendments to Phase 2 of Regulation No. 129 Proposal to introduce phase 2 amendments related to the booster seat category (booster seat with backrest) into UN R129. The text includes all modifications proposed by GRSP up to and including its 57th session (Geneva, 18–22 May 2015) as well as those of the IWG CRS up to and including its 53rd session (London, 2 September 2015). The proposal builds on the original UN Regulation No. 129, Corrigendum 1, Supplements 1, 2, 3 and 4 as well as the draft 01 series of amendments to the UN Regulation (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/24) Phase 1.
GRSP-58-01/Rev.1 | UN Regulation No. 129 - Completion of Envelopes for integral CRS Justification of submissions GRSP/2015/20 and GRSP/2015/29 (proposals to introduce an integral fixture for lateral (lie flat, carry cot) child restraint systems).
GRSP-58-07/Rev.1 | Proposal for the 01 series of amendments to Phase 1 of Regulation No. 129 Further refinements to the formal proposal to amend UN R129 with regard to non-integral CRS. This informal document effectively updates the formal proposal in GRSP/2015/24.
GRSP-58-08 | Proposal for the 02 series of amendments to Phase 2 of Regulation No. 129 Updated proposal from the CRS informal group to introduce phase 2 amendments related to the booster-seat CRS category (booster seat with backrest) into UN R129. This informal document effectively supersedes the formal proposal in GRSP/2015/31.
GRSP-58-21 | Proposal for Supplement to Regulation No. 129 Completion of missing Integral fixtures for Regulation 129. The Universal Fixture was compatible with 39 of 40 vehicle types (97.5%) tested, but a lateral fixture (lie flat, carry cot) is needed for certain special cases.
