Session 170 | Geneva | 15-18 Nov 2016
4.8.6. Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 80
WP.29/2016/103 | Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 03 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”.
