Focus had been on two issues (a) the ongoing amendment proposals to Annex 5 of the 1968 Convention on Road Traffic dealing with the provisions for the lighting and light-signaling devices to be harmonized with those under the 1958 Agreement and (b) the amendment proposals to the 1949 Convention on Road Traffic. As concerns the latter, WP.1 noted that, due to different legal procedures, the corresponding amendments to the 1949 Convention could not be successfully adopted; WP.29 was informed that WP.1 consequently might further review how the 1968 and 1949 Conventions can remain aligned, as needed.

92. The secretariat introduced WP.29-169-13, recalling the discussion that took place at GRRF in the context of IWVTA (WP.29-168-15) and, separately, on the issue of the performance of automotive systems in conditions other than those tested according to the regulated test procedures as well as the fact that the new regulation on TPMS systems could serve as a case study for consideration by the Working Parties. He added that the document had listed the existing tools used to regulate the performance of automotive systems in conditions other than those tested in the framework of type-approval or self-certification.
93. The representative of the Russian Federation supported the document and noted that the importance of taking into consideration the wide variety of intelligent systems in vehicles. In his opinion, there should be requirements for the reliability of the vehicles and components and requirements for the performance of the vehicles in use. The first group of requirements could be covered by the methodology applied by the manufacturer to the design process and the information, which should be disclosed to the technical service, for type approval purposes.
94. He noted that the performance of vehicles “in service” differs from performance prescribed for a new motor vehicle in UN Regulations and referred to R.E.3, paragraphs. 184.108.40.206. and 220.127.116.11. According to these paragraphs, the braking performance may be verified by methods and at speeds different from those prescribed in the relevant UN Regulations No. 13 and 13-H. The representative of the Russian Federation proposed an approach to install limits for decreasing performance of vehicles in use and verify them in the frame of the 1997 Agreement Rules. He proposed that the task could be reviewed by IWG on PTI to develop related proposals.
95. The representative of the EU welcomes a discussion on this important topic on the basis of this document yet sees the need for further horizontal reflections at the level of WP.29.
96. The representative of the United Kingdom, Chair of GRRF stated that the matter might be considered under the PTI view point, but that the first priority would be to verify the fitness of UN Regulations with regard to the points raised in the document.
97. Following the intervention of the representative of EU, WP.29 welcomed the document and agreed that the Chairs of Working Parties should check the suitability of Regulations dealing with complex electronic systems and software and, specifically focus on the responsibilities of the approval applicant, the technical service and the Type Approval Authorities, the precision of the requirements and identify, if needed, provisions that could provide clarification to avoid ambiguity.
WP.29-169-13 | Performance of automotive systems in conditions other than those tested Paper by the WP.29 secretariat to outline possibilities for regulatory provisions covering the performance of automotive systems under conditions other than those tested in the framework of type-approval or self-certification, with TPMS as a case study.
98. WP.29 noted that Mr. Kutenev (Russian Federation) and Mr. Ayral (CLEPA) would retire and no longer attend the sessions. The World Forum acknowledged their continued support and highly valuable contributions during the decades of participation and wished them all the best in their future activities.

|18.4.||Electric vehicles and the environment||
131. The representative of Canada informed AC.3 about the ongoing activities on data and information gathering. He mentioned that a draft report on the results of part A, as well as information about different options and recommendations on the way forward had been presented and discussed at GRPE in June 2016. He highlighted the good close cooperation between the IWGs on EVE and WLTP on the topic of determining powertrain performance. He informed AC.3 about the planning of part B of the mandate under each of the areas of work: (a) recyclability was expected to be removed from any subsequent mandate; (b) a model had been developed, as an information sharing activity, to evaluate the energy consumption of a particular vehicle; (c) research and literature review on battery performance and durability: research on a method of stating energy consumption may continue and could provide a basis for the development of a new UN GTR. The development of a new UN GTR may be initiated or research may continue; and then (d) development of a procedure for incorporation into the existing UN GTR No. 15 was expected to be recommended for the power-train performance determination, in accordance with the mandate. He mentioned that the IWG on EVE would meet in July 2016 to reach final consensus. He informed AC.3 that a request for developing UN GTRs may be submitted to the November 2016 session of AC.3 in order to initiate part B of the mandate.
