GRSP-60-13 | Draft Global Technical Regulation on Electric Vehicle Safety Draft text presented by the EVS informal group for GRSP discussion and consideration.
GRSP-60-20 | Status of the Electric Vehicle Safety GTR
8. Regulation No. 14
GRSP-58-13 | Draft proposal for a 08 series of amendments to Regulation No. 14 Australian proposal to adapt UN R14 to current Australian child restraint system anchorage requirements within the context of enabling the use of UN R14 within the international whole vehicle type approval system.
GRSP/2016/20 | Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 07 series of Amendments to Regulation No. 14 Proposal to align UN R14 with recent changes to UN R16 on occupant restraint systems. Two "Booster Seat" fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) were added to UN R16 to coincide with the implementation of Phase 2 of UN R129 (enhanced child restraint systems). These fixtures were developed within ISO/TC 22/SC 36/WG 2 (Child Restraint Systems) and follow the principle already established in Regulations 16 and 129 to ensure child restraint to car compatibility. An additional "Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS" fixture (ISO/R2x) was added to facilitate compatibility in small cars/seating positions. The ISO/B2 booster seat fixture was added in the i-Size concept. Lateral facing fixtures (ISO/L1 and ISO/L2) have been upgraded.
GRSP-60-04 | Proposal for the [08] Series of amendments to Regulation No. 14 Proposal to transfer all ISOFIX requirements from UN R14 into a new UN Regulation. Within the context of the international whole vehicle type approval program, the removal of these CRS anchorage provisions would align UN R14 with its Australian Design Rule counterpart and enable Australia to apply the revised UN R14 narrowed down to adult seat-belt anchorages only.
GRSP-60-05 | Proposal for a new UN Regulation on ISOFIX anchorages Per the proposal to narrow the scope of UN R14 (GRSP-60-04), this proposal would consolidate the provisions for child restraint anchorages deleted from UN R14 as a new UN Regulation.
9. Regulation No. 16
GRSP/2016/13 | Proposal for 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to insert provisions for vehicles equipped with manual airbag deactivation devices, especially to ensure that vehicles meet performance requirements regardless of the airbag activation setting and to specific requirements for airbag status reminders and telltales.
GRSP/2016/21 | Proposal for Supplement 9 to the 06 series and Supplement 1 to the 07 series of Amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to add new CRS fixtures and otherwise align UN R16 with changes introduced through UN R129 (enhanced child restraint systems). Two "Booster Seat" fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) were added to UN R16 to coincide with the implementation of Phase 2 of UN R129. These fixtures were developed within ISO/TC 22/SC 36/WG 2 (Child Restraint Systems) and follow the principle already established in Regulations 16 and 129 to ensure child restraint to car compatibility. An additional "Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS" fixture (ISO/R2x) was added to facilitate compatibility in small cars/seating positions. The ISO/B2 booster seat fixture was added in the i-Size concept. Lateral facing fixtures (ISO/L1 and ISO/L2) have been upgraded.
GRSP/2016/24 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 07 series of Amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to update the 07 series of amendments in line with UN R129 and changes to the 06 series (Supplements 8 and 9). Two "Booster Seat" fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) were added to UN R16 to coincide with the implementation of Phase 2 of UN Regulation No. 129. These fixtures were developed within ISO/TC 22/SC 36/WG 2 (Child Restraint Systems) and follow the principle already established in Regulations 16 and 129 to ensure child restraint to car compatibility. An additional “Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS” fixture (ISO/R2x) was added to facilitate compatibility in small cars/seating positions. The ISO/B2 booster seat fixture was added in the i-Size concept. Lateral facing fixtures (ISO/L1 and ISO/L2) have been upgraded.
GRSP-60-10 | Proposal for amendments to the draft Supplement 1 to the 07 series of Amendments to Regulation No. 16 This informal doc amends the draft supplement presented in document GRSP/2016/24 in order to harmonize the mass tolerances of the ISO fixtures. The proposal deletes a reference to the center of gravity and geometrical centroid. The centroid would need more information before choosing tolerances needed for certification tests.
GRSP-60-11/Rev.1 | Proposal to amend the draft Supplement 9 to the 06 series of Amendments to Regulation No. 16 This informal doc amends the draft supplement presented in document GRSP/2016/21 in order to harmonize the mass tolerances of the ISO fixtures. The proposal deletes a reference to the center of gravity and geometrical centroid. The centroid would need more information before choosing tolerances needed for certification tests.
GRSP-60-12 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 The current paragraph 15.6 foresees that, for type approval to the 07 series, safety belt reminders are not compulsory until 1 September 2022 on the exempted seats (e.g. seat rows with a suspension seat). In the absence of any clarification for the case of extensions of type approvals, paragraph 15.6 of UN R16.07 could create interpretation problems when a previously granted approval for an exempted vehicle needs to be extended after 1 September 2022. As previously agreed by GRSP, this proposal would clarify that the new SBR requirements would be applicable only for new type approvals as from 1 September 2022, such that previously granted approvals would remain accepted, with their exemption.
GRSP-60-22 | Proposal to amend the draft Supplement 1 to the 07 series of Amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to correct figure 2 in Annex 1B to show the referenced zones A and B, to add sentence "Non-rigid material of < 50 Shore A hardness may be removed in order to demonstrate that covered or padded rigid parts are not contacted by the head or the chest of the manikin during the test.", and to make editorial improvements.
10. Regulation No. 17
GRSP-57-23 | Regulation No. 17 strength of seats - Request for clarification Request for clarification concerning head restraint testing configurations.
GRSP-58-28/Rev.1 | Proposal for the 09 series of amendments to Regulation No. 17 Proposal of draft text to transpose GTR No. 7 (head restraints) into UN R17, including the draft Amendment 1 to GTR 7 addressing use of the BioRID II test dummy, backset measurement method revision, and new head restraint height thresholds.
WP.29/2016/98 | Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to clarify and improve provisions for<ol class="alpha"><li>the belt routing and positioning of the universal child restraint system seat fixture during testing;</li><li>dynamic testing of the rear seat system and advanced restraint system approval; and</li><li>to restructure and simplify the consumer information requirements on the installation of ISOFIX child restraint systems under UN R16.</li></ol>.
GRSP/2015/27 | Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 08 series of amendments to Regulation No. 17 Proposal to expand the application area of the energy absorption criteria for seating in order to facilitate the optimization of seat-belt load limiters by allowing limited occupant contact with these seat areas.
11. Regulation No. 21
GRSP/2015/28 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 21 Changes to NCAP testing oblige the use of load limiters on safety-belts with lower threshold values that yield less thorax compression but also allow for greater forward displacement of the occupants. To address the greater forward displacement of rear occupants, UN R17 is under revision to require more stringent energy dissipation performance for those areas of the rear of seats (including the head restraints and parts mounted on the seat) where the head of the rear occupant may come into contact. UN R21 allows for alternative testing of the rear parts of seats (paras. 5.7-5.7.3. ) However, in light of the changes to UN R17, this alternative approach is no longer valid. This proposal would delete the alternate method and expands the scope of UN R21 to include testing of any parts mounted on the seats.
12. Regulation No. 22
GRSP-57-06 | Regulation No. 22 and electric bikes In response to a request during the December 2014 GRSP session to resume discussions on helmet safety and electric bikes, the secretariat has prepared this background note.
13. Regulation No. 25
GRSP/2015/22 | Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 25 The provisions of UN Regulation No. 16 (paragraph 6.4.1.4.1.) only allow contact of the chest of the dummy driver with the steering assembly, provided that this contact fulfils certain energy-dissipation test requirements and that contact does not occur at a speed higher than 24 km/h. In response to the updated provisions of UN Regulation No. 16 which allow greater forward displacement of occupants, UN Regulation No. 17 will be updated to provide requirements on improved energy-dissipation criteria for those areas of the rear of seats and head restraints where impact of the head of the rear occupant may occur. Given the update to UN R17, this proposal would amend the scope of UN R25 (which has not been updated with regard to energy dissipation) to cover only vehicle categories M2 < 3.5 tons and N1 and mention explicitly that application to N2 and N3 vehicle categories is optional.
14. Regulation No. 44
GRSP/2016/14 | Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to clarify the requirements for CRS utilizing the seat belt lap strap in order to ensure correct installation and testing and to avoid possibly dangerous misinterpretation to the test configuration.
GRSP/2016/18 | Proposal for Supplement 13 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Proposal to resolve divergent interpretations with regard to child restraint systems in UN Regulation No. 44.
GRSP-60-02 | Collective amendments to Regulations Nos. 44 and 129 Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement allows for a Unique Identifier (UI) under the DETA system as an alternative to the current approval mark. In the case of child restraint systems, the approval mark contains important information for users. Therefore, this proposal would prohibit replacement of the approval mark by the UI.
GRSP-60-15 | Draft Supplement 13 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No.44 Proposal to resolve divergent interpretations with regard to child restraint systems in UN Regulation No. 44, superseding document GRSP/2016/18.
GRSP-60-14 | Draft Supplement 13 to the 04 series of amendments to UN R44: Description of the "new-born" manikins Q0 and P0 Proposal to add the Q0 infant test dummy to the UN R44 procedures in response to problems encountered in acquiring the currently specified P0 dummy.
GRSP-60-19 | Explanation of the proposal for Supplement 13 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 44 Explanation of the proposals in document GRSP/2016/18 intended to resolve divergent interpretations with regard to child restraint systems in UN Regulation No. 44.
GRSP-60-25 | Evaluating Child Safety Innovations: Have we got the right tools and the right test methodologies?
15. Regulation No. 80
GRSP/2015/23 | Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 80 In response to proposals to allow greater forward displacement of occupants under UN R16 and the resulting changes in impact energy-dissipation criteria under UN R17, UN R25 (with regard to head restraints) is also subject to change. This proposal would accordingly update a reference in UN R80 to UN R25.
16. Regulation No. 94
17. Regulation No. 100
GRSP/2016/7 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 100 Proposal to transfer provisions for electrical safety of trolleybuses from UN Regulation No. 107 (M2 and M3 vehicles) to UN Regulation No. 100 (Electric Power Trained Vehicles). This proposal seeks to clarify the scope of the two Regulations with regard to the electrical safety of trolleybuses.
18. Regulation No. 127
19. Regulation No. 129
