Session 63 | Geneva | 16-18 Feb 2016
7. Regulation No. 117 (Tyre rolling resistance, rolling noise and wet grip)
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.
GRRF/2016/12 | 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. The proposal would also change the measurement units for drum speed from min<sup>-1</sup> to km.h<sup>-1</sup> in alignment with the requirements with other tyre regulations and align the wording in Annex 7, Appendix 1 with the text of the Regulation.
GRRF/2016/14 | 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.
9. Exchange of information on national and international requirements on noise levels
GRB-62-14 | A Policy Indicator for Road Traffic Noise Emission Paper describing the development and application of a method for determining benefits of tyre noise reduction efforts in terms of the number of people impacted.
GRB-62-14/Add.1 | A Policy Indicator for Road Traffic Noise Emission (presentation) Presentation on the Dutch-developed methodology for assessing the impact of changes to tyre and vehicle noise standards.
GRB-63-05 | Urban sound planning Presentation on urban noise research at Chalmers University.
GRB-63-03 | Amendment proposals for Regulations Nos. 9, 63 and 92 Explanation of recommendations developed for the European Commission by LAT, TNO, Heinz Steven, and TÜV Nord for the improvement of the regulations with regard to additional sound emission provisions.
GRB-63-09 | Amendment proposals for Regulation No. 92
GRB-63-18 | EC study to enhance Regulations Nos. 9, 63 and 92 with respect to sound test requirements
GRB-63-18/Add.1 | Consultation on the evaluation of the EU Environmental Noise Directive
GRB-63-07 | Amendment proposals for Regulation No. 63 Based on the outcomes of a European Commission study, proposal to clarify the text and align its provisions with other vehicle sound regulations, especially UN R41, including to replace references to "two wheeled moped" with the term “L1 category vehicles” (and consequently to replace references to "moped" with "vehicle") and to replace the term "noise" with "sound" (except for references to background noise) throughout the regulation.
GRB-63-08 | Amendment proposals for Regulation No. 9 Based on the outcomes of a European Commission study, proposal to clarify the text and align its provisions with other vehicle sound regulations, especially UN R41.
GRB-62-08/Rev.2
