7. (e) Tyres: Regulation No. 106
GRRF/2016/39 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 106 Proposal to amend Annex 5 with regard to Improved Flexion (IF) tyres and Very high Flexion (VF) tyres.
GRRF/2017/6 | Proposal for a new Resolution on Tyre Sizes Regulation No. 106 contains standardized tyre sizes which often need to be updated in line with technological progress. In order to accelerate the update process of the Regulation and limit the number of amendments, it is proposed to insert in a new Resolution the newly standardized sizes and to refer to this Resolution in Annex 5. As a temporary solution to assess the effectiveness of such proposal, the Annex 5 of Regulation No. 106 will be kept as it is with no further updates. After a trial period of approximately two years and upon confirmation of effectiveness, the complete Annex 5 of Regulation No. 106 would be transferred to this Resolution on Tyre Sizes.
GRRF/2017/9 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 106 Proposal to:<ol class="alpha"><li>Align definitions and contents of paragraphs with the other tyre regulations (UN R30, R54, R117, etc.);</li><li>Include a definition of "Manufacturer" extracted from the resolution "R.E.3";</li><li>Adopt a common definition and use of the terms "Manufacturer’s name"," Brand name", "Trademark", "Trade description" and "Commercial name" and their links;<li>Clarify which markings shall be moulded on both sidewalls of the tyre; and those which shall be moulded on one sidewall only;</li><li>Add information in the certificate to clarify the relationship with the certified products;</li><li>Align definitions with Regulation EU 167/2013 which defines vehicles in category S as "interchangeable towed equipment" and includes tread patterns for ‘implement traction tyres’ that consist of blocks rather than lugs or cleats;</li><li>Eliminate redundant marking requirements with the requirement for "@kPa" markings effective from 1 September 2017;</li><li>Clarify the inflation pressure to be used for measurements and tests and related tyre markings;</li><li>Align the current rules for calculating the dimensional limits in accordance with ISO, all major tyre standards, and as proposed for UN R30, R54, and R75;</li></ol>
GRRF/2017/5 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 106 Regulation No. 106 contains standardized tyre sizes, which often need to be updated, following the technical progress. In order to accelerate the update process of the Regulation and limit the number of amendments, it is proposed to insert in a new Resolution the standardized sizes and to refer to this Resolution in Annex 5. As a temporary solution to assess the effectiveness of such proposal, the Annex 5 of Regulation No. 106 will be kept as it is with no further updates. After a trial period of approximately two years and upon confirmation of effectiveness, the complete Annex 5 of Regulation No. 106 would be transferred to this Resolution on Tyre Sizes.
GRRF-83-15 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 106 Proposal to add tyre and rim dimensions and to add a diameter code 'd' of 28.5 <i>(Please note that the "28.5.5" shown in the table is a typo and should be "28.5").</i>
GRRF-83-14 | Proposal for amendments to document GRRF/2017/9 Proposal to amend the transitional provisions of the formal proposal to update UN R106 (GRRF/2017/9).
GRRF-83-12 | Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2017/6 Revised proposal for a "Mutual Resolution on dimensions of tyres of certain size designations".
GRRF-83-11 | Proposal for amendments to document GRRF/2017/5 Revised version of the proposal to include UN R106 tyre dimensions in a Mutual Resolution on tyre sizes. The amendment to the table listing the allowed nominal rim diameters (d) is needed to allow the approval of standardized sizes which exist and are already on the waiting list for type approval.
GRRF-83-23 | Amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRRF/2017/9 Amendment, per GRRF discussions, to remove the proposal to require the use of kPa markings and the related transitional provisions from the broader set of amendments to UN R106 proposed in document GRRF/2017/9.

Therefore, Germany proposes that GRRF work to resolve these disparities and offers two possible solutions: 1) Introduce the definition of "Snow tyre for use in severe snow conditions” and the related performance and marking requirements established under UN R109 and R117 into UN R30, R54, R75, R108, and (possibly) R106; 2) Amending UN R117 to extend the scope of its snow performance criteria to additional tyre classes and categories, such as special tyres (POR, MPT), all terrain (AT) tyres, and retreaded tyres for passenger cars.
