Proposal for draft Corrigendum to Revision 8 of Regulation No. 13 (Russia)
GRRF/2016/25 07 Jul 2016 Working Party Heavy-Duty Vehicle Braking Heavy-Duty Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles of Categories M, N and O with regard to Braking The proposal is aimed at ensuring that the English and Russian texts are equivalent. In the English text, which is the original, in paragraph 2.2.27 of Annex 12 the word "travel" is used. The corresponding word in Russian language should be “ход”. The original text was mistranslated into Russian. GRRF/2016/0025

GRRF/2016/26 07 Jul 2016 Working Party Heavy-Duty Vehicle Braking Heavy-Duty Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles of Categories M, N and O with regard to Braking Proposal to clarify paragraph 8.1.2.

GRRF/2016/0026
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 13 (CLEPA)
GRRF/2016/27 07 Jul 2016 Working Party Heavy-Duty Vehicle Braking Heavy-Duty Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles of Categories M, N and O with regard to Braking UN R13 allows for the exemption of certain vehicles from the requirement for electronic stability controls. This proposal seeks to clarify the scope of the exemptions to include any special purpose vehicle with a non-standard chassis. The change was prompted by a modified vehicle where use of ESC was not feasible, but where the current UN R13 language left doubt as to whether the ESC requirement was applicable. This revised proposal takes into account comments received during the February 2016 GRRF session. GRRF/2016/0027
