Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 110 (France)
27 Apr 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific components of motor vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system; II. Vehicles with regard to the installation of specific components of an approved type for the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system. Proposal to allow for the use of natural gas refrigeration systems to vehicles propelled by natural gas (CNG or LNG). This proposal addresses a new, environmentally friendly natural gas fuelled refrigeration system for trucks with refrigerated loads that already are propelled by natural gas. Currently paragraph 18.1.7.1 allows heating systems to be fitted on vehicles to heat the passenger compartment and/or the load area of a vehicle, however, the same provision omits cooling systems that are used on trucks for the carriage of loads requiring refrigeration. GRSG-110-0023
GRSG-110-24
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 116
28 Apr 2016 Working Party Informal Documents International Whole Vehicle Type Approval System (IWVTA) International Whole Vehicle Type Approval UN Regulation No. 0 on uniform provisions concerning the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval Protection of Vehicles Against Unauthorized Use Anti-theft and Alarm Systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Protection of Motor Vehicles Against Unauthorized Use Proposal from the informal working group on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval to restructure UN R116 into two separate regulations. The regulation addresses anti-theft, alarm, and immobilizer aspects of theft prevention. Since these aspects may be mandatory or optional depending upon the country or market, the application of UN R116 to whole vehicle type approval becomes problematic. This proposal would extract the immobilizer provisions into a separate new regulation. GRSG-110-0024
GRSG-110-25
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 67 (Netherlands)
28 Apr 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Liquefied Petroleum Gas Equipment LPG Equipment Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific Equipment of Motor Vehicles Using Liquefied Petroleum Gases in their Propulsion System II. A Vehicle Fitted with Specific Equipment for the Use of Liquefied Petroleum Gases in its Propulsion System with regard to the Installation of such Equipment Proposal of corrections to document GRSG/2016/7. The wording of the original proposal opens the possible interpretation that the regulation allows materials other than copper, stainless steel, or steel with corrosion-resistant coatings for gas tubes. The intention of the proposal was only to allow for "non-seamless" gas tubing. The original proposal is therefore modified to allow Class 0/I hoses with couplings using gas tubes of other than seamless material. GRSG-110-0025
GRSG-110-26
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 110 (Netherlands)
28 Apr 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific components of motor vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system; II. Vehicles with regard to the installation of specific components of an approved type for the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system. Editorial amendment to document GRSG/2016/8 for clarity. The original proposal would allow the use of Class 0 hoses with couplings using sealing technologies other than those with a 45° cone provided that the hose assembly can withstand the impulse test of paragraph 1.7. and the tests of Annexes 5A (overpressure test) and 5B (external leakage test). This proposal clarifies that the original sealing-cone specification or other compliant couplings, including designs with soft seals (e.g., O-ring) provided they pass testing described in Annexes 5D, 5F, and 5G. GRSG-110-0026

Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 110 (Germany)
29 Apr 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific components of motor vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system; II. Vehicles with regard to the installation of specific components of an approved type for the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system. Proposal to amend GRSG/2015/36 introducing requirements for the operation of a CNG heater when the vehicle is stationary and before starting the engine. The limitation on the number of valves used to operate the CNG combustion heater will require technical changes without any significant benefit. The proposal therefore deletes the limitation and introduces additional clarifications. GRSG-110-0027
GRSG-110-28
Proposal for a supplement to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 (Germany)
29 Apr 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Indirect Vision Devices Indirect Vision Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Devices for Indirect Vision and of Motor Vehicles with regard to the Installation of these Devices Proposal to change the latency for scanning a field of vision (total process of scanning, rendering and reset to its initial position) from a maximum of 2 seconds to a maximum of 200 ms. This proposal corresponds to the current state of technology and removes a contradiction within the regulation between paragraphs 6.2.1.2. and 6.2.2.3.4.3. (the latter introduced via supplement 2 to the 04 series of amendments). GRSG-110-0028

GRSG/2016/2
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 73 (UK)
11 Feb 2016 Working Party Formal Documents Commercial Vehicle Lateral Protection CV Lateral Protection Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Goods Vehicles, Trailers and Semi-Trailers with regard to their Lateral Protection Proposal to expand the scope of the regulation by deleting paragraph 1.2.2. which allows for the exclusion of “vehicles designed and constructed for special purposes where it is not possible, for practical reasons, to fit lateral protection devices” from the text. The UK submits that paragraphs 13 and 16 of the regulation provide specific provisions that address this situation whereas the exclusion clause allows for a broader interpretation that unnecessarily limits the use of lateral protection devices. Moreover, exemptions may still be accorded at the national level. GRSG/2016/0002
GRSG/2016/3
Proposal for the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 118 (Germany)
11 Feb 2016 Working Party Formal Documents Burning Behavior of Interior Materials Material Burning Behavior Uniform Technical Prescriptions Concerning the Burning Behaviour of Materials Used in the Interior Construction of Certain Categories of Motor Vehicles Proposal to clarify the scope and the application of the regulation. The proposal clarifies that the regulation applies to “the burning behaviour of electric cables and cable sleeves or cable conduits used in the vehicle” and it updates the reference to paragraph 5.22. of ISO 6722-1:2011. Specifically, the proposal would apply testing to electric cables, cable sleeves, and cable conduits that exceed a length of 100 mm. GRSG/2016/0003
GRSG/2016/4
Proposal for amendment to Regulation No. 55 (Poland)
11 Feb 2016 Working Party Formal Documents Mechanical Coupling Components Mechanical Couplings Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Mechanical Coupling Components of Combinations of Vehicles At the May 2015 Type Approval Authorities Meeting (TAAM), Poland raised concerns (attached with this submission) over small M<sub>1</sub> vehicles being equipped with aftermarket coupling devices where the vehicle in question is not designed for towing a trailer. In effect, these vehicles are not permitted to tow trailers, but are nonetheless enabled to be equipped for such a purpose by the aftermarket devices. Therefore, Poland proposes to amend UN R55 to ensure that coupling devices are only approved for use on vehicles approved for towing trailers. GRSG/2016/0004
GRSG/2016/5
Proposal for amendment to Regulation No. 107 (Belgium)
11 Feb 2016 Working Party Formal Documents Construction of Coaches and Buses Coach and Bus Construction Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Category M2 or M3 Vehicles with regard to their General Construction Proposal to transfer electrical safety provisions for trolleybuses (Annex 12) from UN R107 to UN R100. In 2006, the provisions of UN R36, UN R52, and UN R107 were merged through the 02 series of amendments to UN R107. In 2015, Annex 12 of UN R107 was amended to align additional safety prescriptions for electrical safety of trolleybuses with the corresponding electrical standards. However, UN R100 has evolved beyond its initial focus on battery electric vehicles and currently presents a more appropriate location for maintaining the trolleybus electrical safety provision of Annex 12. For the provisions of Annex 1 – Part 1 – Appendices 1, 2 and 3, where a list of characteristics of a trolleybus was added apart from the special environmental conditions, a reference will be inserted to Annex 6 – Part 1 and Annex 7 of UN Regulation No. 100. A corresponding proposal for amendments will be submitted as an official document to the Working Party on Passive Safety. GRSG/2016/0005
