GRB-64-01
Proposal for Supplement 5 to Regulation No. 28 (Russia)
20 Jul 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Audible Warning Devices and Signals Audible Warning Devices Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Audible Warning Devices and of Motor Vehicles with regard to their Audible Signals Proposal to update, clarify, and restructure document GRB/2016/4 which aims to refine definitions, remove the “AWD” abbeviation for “audible warning device” to avoid confusion with its more common use for “all wheel drive”, add T category agricultural vehicles to the scope, modify some administrative communications, and add three-direction acoustic measurements. The proposal also aims to structure the regulation to enable its application to additional sound warning devices not presently regulated at the international level, excluding acoustic vehicle alerting systems (AVAS) which will be subject to a separate regulation on minimum vehicle sound levels.

Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 00 series and a proposal for the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 138 (Japan and OICA)
17 Aug 2016 Working Party Informal Documents Quiet Road Transport Vehicles Quiet Road Transport Vehicles Uniform provisions concerning the approval of Quiet Road Transport Vehicles with regard to their reduced audibility (QRTV) Proposal to refine the scope by replacing the phrase "can travel" by "can be propelled". The use of "travel" in the scope can be interpreted to include vehicles using using electrical systems for purposes other than propulsion (e.g., energy recuperation) that fall outside the test conditions of UN R138. The proposal further amends:<ol class="alpha"><li>Paragraph 2.7. to make clear the “pause function” refers to systems that allow the driver to deactivate an AVAS system;</li><li>Paragraph 6.2.6.: The vehicle operator shall not deactivate AVAS while driving. However, the manufacturer shall be enabled to activate or deactivate AVAS, including automatically, by regional coding according to legal provisions of various markets.</li><li>Paragraph 11.: the transitional provisions were added according to the rules of WP.29 for new series of amendments. Paragraph 11.6. has been added to maintain approvals that also comply with the new series of amendments, as is the case for vehicles that do not have a pause function according to the newly suggested paragraph 6.2.6.</li><li>Annex 1, Addendum to the communication form No …, Technical Information: technical information regarding “Pause switch (yes/no)” will be no longer necessary.</li></ol> GRB-64-0003
