Session 82 | Geneva | 20-23 Sep 2016
4. Regulation No. 55 (Mechanical couplings)
GRRF/2016/28 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 55 Proposal from the UN R55 informal group to allow the fitment of a secondary coupling and/or a brake away cable for un-braked O1 trailers or inertia braked trailers up to 3.5t which are equipped with class B coupling heads and class S drawbar eyes (38 mm, 40 mm, and others) and for the related use of integrated towing brackets.
GRRF/2016/29 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 55 Proposal by the informal working group on Regulation No. 55 concerning vehicle combination applications to introduce: (a) An amendment for the separation of requirement calculation procedures from the procedure of setting and certifying performance values. (b) An amendment that adds procedures for requirement calculation for vehicle combinations that have hitherto not been accounted for in the Regulation.
GRRF/2016/30 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 55 Proposal by the informal working group on Regulation No. 55 and introduces a procedure to identify allowable combinations of performance values DC and V for drawbar coupling equipment.
GRRF/2016/31 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 55 Proposal by the informal working group on Regulation No. 55 to introduce: a) Correction of an error in Annex 5, figures 12 and 17; b) An amendment that concerns identification of worst cases for design assessment; c) Clarifications on minimum articulation angles.
GRRF/2016/32 | Proposal for an amendment to Regulation No. 55 Proposal to restrict component type-approval for mechanical coupling devices dedicated to category M1 vehicles to use only on such M1 vehicles as are designed to tow trailers.
GRRF-82-02 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 55 Explanation of proposals from the informal working group for corrections, restructuring, and amendments to UN R55.
GRRF-82-05 | Current provisions in Annex 5 of Regulation No. 55 (01 series) Comments concerning failure modes in the event of a separation of the main coupling between a vehicle and a towed trailer in order to enable the trailer to be guided and/or stopped automatically.
GRRF-82-27 | Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2016/29 Corrections to the proposal by the informal working group on Regulation No. 55 concerning vehicle combination applications to introduce: (a) An amendment for the separation of requirement calculation procedures from the procedure of setting and certifying performance values. (b) An amendment that adds procedures for requirement calculation for vehicle combinations that have hitherto not been accounted for in the Regulation.
GRRF-82-28 | Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2016/31 Revised proposal superseding document GRRF/2016/31. Proposals in GRRF/2016/31 to regulate the articulation angles of couplings as installed have been removed. The informal group on UN R55 could not reach agreement on this subject. As a result, this revised proposal by the informal working group on Regulation No. 55: a) Corrects an error in Annex 5, figures 12 and 17; and b) Introduces an amendment concerning identification of worst cases for design assessment.
GRRF-82-33 | Amendment to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2016/28 agreed during the session Amendment to the proposal from the UN R55 informal group to allow the fitment of a secondary coupling and/or a brake away cable for un-braked O1 trailers or inertia braked trailers up to 3.5t which are equipped with class B coupling heads and class S drawbar eyes (38 mm, 40 mm, and others) and for the related use of integrated towing brackets.
