15. Regulation No. 80 (Strength of seats and their anchorages (Buses))
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.
GRSP-59-09/Rev.1 | Proposal for the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 80 UN R80, paragraph 7.4.4. specifies that passengers in side-facing seats "shall be safeguarded by a vehicle part (e.g. partition, wall or seat back of a forward-facing seat) forward of the foremost side-facing seat". Germany has determined that the current text has been misinterpreted with regard to the intended requirement for a safety device that does not break and maintains its capability to retain a passenger’s body in the event of an accident. This proposal clarifies that such any such structure "shall retain its safeguard function during testing".
