Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2016/22 (CLEPA)
19 Jan 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Replacement Brake Linings, Discs, and Drums Replacement Brake Components Uniform provisions concerning the approval of replacement brake lining assemblies, drum brake linings and discs and drums for power-driven vehicles and their trailers Updated version of the proposal to remove tables specifying general values for replacement discs and drums that are identical to the original (2.3.3.4) since such replacements must by definition have values identical to the corresponding original parts. The proposal also would change the maximum permitted thickness variation of discs for medium and heavy vehicles from 0.030 mm to 0.050 mm (the common OEM specification). This revised proposal clarifies that the proposal would revise the specifications for vehicles of categories M3, N3, O3 and O4 but retain the maximum permitted specification of 0.030mm for vehicles of categories M2 and N2.

Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2016/22 (CLEPA)
05 Feb 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Replacement Brake Linings, Discs, and Drums Replacement Brake Components Uniform provisions concerning the approval of replacement brake lining assemblies, drum brake linings and discs and drums for power-driven vehicles and their trailers Revised version of the proposal to remove tables specifying general values for replacement discs and drums that are identical to the original (2.3.3.4), taking into account comments received during the February 2016 GRRF session. The tables are considered superfluous since replacement parts identical to the original parts must by definition have values identical to the corresponding original parts. This proposal also would change the maximum permitted thickness variation of discs for medium and heavy vehicles from 0.030 mm to 0.040 mm (the common OEM specification). This has been changed from the previous proposal of 0.050 mm. This revised proposal clarifies that the proposal would revise the specifications for vehicles of categories M3, N3, O3 and O4 but retain the maximum permitted specification of 0.030mm for vehicles of categories M2 and N2.
