4.2. Guidance requested by the Working Parties on matters related to Regulations annexed to the 1958 Agreement
WP.29-170-05 | Draft transitional provisions for UN Regulations No. 83 and No. 101 following the transposition of GTR No. 15 through new UN Regulation on WLTP During the 169th session of WP.29 (para. 39 of the session report), the World Forum was informed that, following the entry into force of the new European legislation on provisions on real driving emissions and Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Procedure (WLTP) as of September 2017, no new vehicles will be allowed to enter into the European market without fulfilling these new provisions. WP.29 agreed to introduce transitional provisions in UN Regulations Nos. 83 and 101 to specify that Contracting Parties applying UN Regulations Nos. 83 and 101 which would also apply WLTP as defined in UN GTR No. 15 (such as the EU) would have no obligation to accept type-approvals granted on the basis of test cycles other than WLTP as of September 2017 (para. 41 of the 169th session report). WP.29 requested the secretariat to prepare an official document for the WP.29 March 2017 session, subject to the endorsement of GRPE at its January 2017 session, on supplements to UN Regulations Nos. 83 and 101 introducing such transitional provisions. Thus, the secretariat has prepared this text to allow for such a derogation from mutual recognition requirements under UN R83 and R101 until such time as GTR 15 has been transposed into UN Regulations under the 1958 Agreement.
WP.29-170-25 | Proposal for introducing the system of "A-points" Proposal for improving the efficiency of WP.29 sessions through the designation of agenda items as "A-points". A-points would be recommended for approval as a block. This would not change the voting procedure, but would reduce the time devoted to considering proposals during the session prior to the vote. Items considered as A points might fulfill attributes such as:<ol class="alpha"><li>the proposal does not establish a new Regulation;</li><li>the amendment does not create the starting point of a new series of amendments;</li><li>there was no dissent during discussions at GR level;</li><li>the amendment does not contain substantial elements;</li><li>the amendment is a series of parallel amendments within a Regulation (e.g. different series of amendments);</li><li>the amendment is a series of parallel amendments to a number of Regulations (e.g. introducing the term REESS).</li></ol>

WP.29/2016/89 | Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 46 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).
4.7.2. Proposal for the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 105

4.7.4. Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107
WP.29/2016/92 | Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 05 series of amendments to Regulation No. 107 Proposal to extend requirements introduced via Supplement 4 to the 04 series of amendments concerning barriers in the gangway and the amount of priority seats to the 05 series of amendments. The proposal also aims to paragraph 7.7.5.1. with regard to ceiling-mounted displays or monitors and simplify the testing procedure:<ul><li>The gauge shall be used only for the identification of the monitors to be tested.</li><li>The simplified way to apply the removal force corresponds to a passenger pushing the monitor/display with its hand, and in these conditions the acceptable force limit is adapted.</li><li>The test must be conducted in both directions.</li><li>The proposed wording for the last condition to fulfil is more technology neutral, the case of automatic redeployment is also considered and banned.</li></ul> The proposal would also redefine the measurement criteria for determining appropriate seat spacing, including the use of a new testing gauge for the H dimension measurement.

4.8.2. Proposal for the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16
WP.29/2016/99 | Proposal for 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to require seat-belt reminders for all seating positions, including rear positions, and to clarify the scope of the regulation.

WP.29/2016/101 | Proposal for Supplement 12 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to amend the toxicity and flammability declarations via references to EN 71 (European safety standards), taking into account procedures of FMVSS 302. The amendments propose the burning rate values of FMVSS 302 (302.4 inches/102 mm per minute), to harmonize the three proposals with regard to EN standards references, and to incorporate the amendment 1 to EN 71-3 (A1:2014). The proposal also would align requirements for deceleration test devices with acceleration ones (making explicit that it is mandatory to match the corridor for each test) and to add dummy criteria and compliance with ISO 17025 to the information required in test reports.
4.8.5. Proposal for Supplement 12 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44
WP.29/2016/102 | Proposal for Supplement 12 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to strip ISOFIX CRS provisions from UN R44 and to cease all new type approvals for ISOFIX integral CRS under UN R44 from 1 September 2017 in deference to UN R129 on Enhanced CRS.
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”.
4.8.7. Proposal for Corrigendum 2 to Regulation No. 129
WP.29/2016/104 | Proposal for Corrigendum 2 to the Russian text of Regulation No. 129 Proposal to improve the translation into Russian of the text originally adopted in its English version and to correct a typographical error in the Russian text.

4.9. Consideration of draft amendments to existing Regulations submitted by GRPE
4.9.1. Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83
WP.29/2016/108 | Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83 UN Regulations Nos. 49 and 83 include provisions for a “driver inducement system” that alerts drivers of low reagent levels (urea, etc.) critical to correct emissions control performance and eventually prevents vehicle operation if the reagent tank is empty. Under UN R49 (para. 5.2), rescue, police, and other emergency/special use vehicles are exempted from this requirement. This proposal would extend the same treatment under UN R83. The proposal also makes several corrections and clarifications (see document GRPE/2016/11) with respect to extensions of approval, reduction in efficiency of the catalytic converter with respect to emissions of NMHC and NOx, and OBD.
4.9.2. Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83
WP.29/2016/109 | Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 83 UN Regulations Nos. 49 and 83 include provisions for a “driver inducement system” that alerts drivers of low reagent levels (urea, etc.) critical to correct emissions control performance and eventually prevents vehicle operation if the reagent tank is empty. Under UN R49 (para. 5.2), rescue, police, and other emergency/special use vehicles are exempted from this requirement. This proposal would extend the same treatment under UN R83. The proposal also makes several corrections and clarifications (see document GRPE/2016/11) with respect to extensions of approval, reduction in efficiency of the catalytic converter with respect to emissions of NMHC and NOx, and OBD.
