10. Regulation No. 17 (Strength of seats)
GRSP-57-23 | Regulation No. 17 strength of seats - Request for clarification Request for clarification concerning head restraint testing configurations.
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/2015/27 | 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.
11. Regulation No. 21 (Interior fittings)
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 ) However, in light of the changes to UN R17, this alternative approach is no longer valid.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.
12. Regulation No. 22 (Protective helmets)
GRSP-57-06 | Regulation No. 22 and electric bikes In response to a request during the December 2014 GRSP session to resume discussions on helmet safety and electric bikes, the secretariat has prepared this background note.
13. Regulation No. 25 (Head restraints)
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.
14. Regulation No. 44 (Child restraints systems)
GRSP/2016/3 | Proposal for Supplement 12 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), taking into account procedures of FMVSS 302.

GRSP/2016/11 | Proposal for 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to strip ISOFIX CRS provisions from UN R44 and to cease all new type approvals for CRS under UN R44 from November 2016 in deference to UN R129 on Enhanced CRS. Presently, all the Contracting Parties applying UN R44 also apply UN R129. Therefore, the proposal seeks to eliminate the possibility to seek new type approvals under either UN R44 or UN R129 by restricting ISOFIX CRS to UN R129.
GRSP/2016/14 | Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to clarify the requirements for CRS utilizing the seat belt lap strap in order to ensure correct installation and testing and to avoid possibly dangerous misinterpretation to the test configuration.
GRSP-59-02/Rev.2 | Proposal for Supplement 12 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Updated proposal from Spain on behalf of the CRS Technical Services Group to align requirements for deceleration test devices with acceleration ones (making explicit that it is mandatory to match the corridor for each test) and to add dummy criteria and compliance with ISO 17025 to the information required in test reports.
GRSP-59-04 | Collective amendments to Regulations No. 44 and No. 129 Amendment to the proposals (GRSP/2016/3, GRSP/2016/5, and GRSP/2016/6) to amend the toxicity and flammability declarations via references to EN 71 (European safety standards), taking into account procedures of FMVSS 302. The amendments propose the burning rate values of FMVSS 302 (302.4 inches/102 mm per minute), to harmonize the three proposals with regard to EN standards references, and to incorporate the amendment 1 to EN 71-3 (A1:2014).
GRSP-59-05 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulations Nos. 44 and 129 Proposal to change the burn-rate in documents GRSP/2016/3, GRSP/2016/5, and GRSP/2016/6 from [250 mm] to the equivalent of the FMVSS 302 specification, i.e., 100 mm.
GRSP-59-15/Rev.1 | Proposal for 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to strip ISOFIX CRS provisions from UN R44 and to cease all new type approvals for ISOFIX integral CRS under UN R44 from [November 2016] in deference to UN R129 on Enhanced CRS.

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".
16. Regulation No. 94 (Frontal collision)
17. Regulation No. 100 (Electric power trained vehicles)
GRSP/2016/7 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 100 Proposal to transfer provisions for electrical safety of trolleybuses from UN Regulation No. 107 (M2 and M3 vehicles) to UN Regulation No. 100 (Electric Power Trained Vehicles).
