Session 64 | Geneva | 5-7 Sep 2016
Attendance
1. Adoption of the agenda
GRB/2016/3 | Annotated provisional agenda for the 64th GRB session
2. Regulation No. 28 (Audible warning devices)
GRB/2016/4 | Proposal for Supplement 5 to Regulation No. 28 Proposal to update and clarify the regulation. The proposal refines definitions, removes the “AWD” abbeviation for “audible warning device” to avoid confusion with its more common use for “all wheel drive”, adds T category agricultural vehicles to the scope, modifies some administrative communications, and proposes 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.
GRB-64-01 | Proposal for Supplement 5 to Regulation No. 28 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.

GRB-64-22 | Revised proposal for Supplement 5 to Regulation No. 28 Proposal as agreed within the GRB to update and clarify the regulation. The proposal refines definitions, removes the “AWD” abbeviation for “audible warning device” to avoid confusion with its more common use for “all wheel drive”, modifies some administrative communications, and proposes 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.
GRB-64-02 | Editorial amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRB/2016/4 Proposal for editorial improvements to document GRB/2016/4 intended to update and restructure UN R28.
WP.29-168-04 | Proposal for establishment of New Regulation with regard to reversing sound warning devices Proposal from Turkey to establish requirements for audible systems to alert other road users when a vehicle is operating in reverse.
3. Regulation No. 41 (Noise of motorcycles): Development
4. Regulation No. 51 (Noise of M and N categories of vehicles)
4. (a) Regulation No. 51: Development
WP.29/2016/4 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 51 Proposal to clarify the wording of the 03 series of amendments to UN R51 as adopted by the World Forum in June 2015 (document WP.29/2015/62). The adopted wording could lead to the interpretation that sound levels measured on the left side of the vehicle are to be averaged with levels measured on the right side of the vehicle. The proposed new wording clarifies that the overall sound emission is assessed individually per vehicle side.
4. (b) UN Regulation No. 51: Additional sound emission provisions
GRB-64-04 | Proposals to clarify the provisions of Regulation No. 51, Revision 3, Annex 7 Proposal to clarify the text in order to avoid misinterpretation.

The document proposes improved terminology and definitions, including new ones, improved sound emission testing conditions and procedures. It also introduces anti-tampering provisions and an "Additional sound emission provisions" (ASEP) statement by the manufacturer.
GRB/2016/6 | Proposal for Supplement 3 to Regulation No. 9 Based on the outcomes of a European Commission study, proposal to clarify the text and align its provisions with other vehicle sound regulations, especially UN R41.
GRB/2016/7 | Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 63 Based on the outcomes of a European Commission study, proposal to clarify the text and align its provisions with other vehicle sound regulations, especially UN R41, including to replace references to “two wheeled moped” with the term “L1 category vehicles” (and consequently to replace references to “moped” with “vehicle”) and to replace the term “noise” with “sound” (except for references to background noise) throughout the regulation. It proposes improved terminology and definitions, including new ones, improved sound emission testing conditions and procedures. It also introduces sound emission measurement through new testing of in use vehicles in motion.
7. Regulation No. 117 (Tyre rolling noise and wet grip adhesion)

GRB/2016/8 | Proposal for the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 138 Proposal to prohibit the use of a pause function for the acoustic vehicle alert system.
GRB/2016/9 | Proposal for the 01 series of amendments to the new Regulation No. 138 Proposal to clarify the regulation with regard to propulsion of the vehicle (replace the term "travel"), definition of the "pause function" (including taking into account the Japanese proposal to prohibit the use of a pause function), and provisions for deactivating AVAS coding in accordance with local market requirements and under conditions outside the scope of the regulation.
GRB-64-03 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 00 series and a proposal for the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 138 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>
