The proposal adds references to the steering gear provisions of UN R137 (full width frontal impact) as a compliance alternative in parallel to the current references similarly allowing compliance via provisions in UN R94 (offset deformable barrier frontal impact). <i>Please note that this proposal is based upon document GRSP-60-06/Rev.1. The reference to GRSP-60-07 is incorrect.</i>
8. Regulation No. 14 (Safety-belt anchorages)
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/2017/8 | 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-61-01 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 14 Proposal to clarify that only a three-point safety belt is permitted in the driver position.
GRSP-61-18 | Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 14 Proposal to clarify the text of UN R14. The current text has produced differing interpretations among Technical Services with regard to which requirements apply to central seating positions in rear rows of category M<sub>1</sub> and N<sub>1</sub> vehicles and the minimum distance between two effective lower belt anchorages (L1 and L2). The proposed amendment clarifies that rear seat rows can only have one central seating position with a reduced minimum distance of 240 mm. Rear seat rows with an even number of seats shall always have a distance of at least 350 mm.
9. Regulation No. 16 (Safety-belts)
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/2017/9 | Proposal for supplement 2 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 For the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval, a UN Regulation is split in two regulations, UN Regulation No. 14-08 series of amendments including only adult safety belt anchorages and a new regulation UN Regulation No. [XX] will include all requirements for child restraint anchorages. Accordingly, this proposal would update the references to UN Regulation No. 14 in UN Regulation No. 16 in order to recognize child restraint system anchorages installed on the vehicle and approved under the new regulation.
GRSP-61-02 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to clarify that only three-point safety belts are permitted in the driver position.
GRSP-61-13 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to clarify provisions concerning the second-level warning for seat-belt reminders, especially with regard to rear seat positions.
GRSP-61-01 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 14 Proposal to clarify that only a three-point safety belt is permitted in the driver position.
10. Regulation No. 17 (Strength of seats)
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.
GRSP/2017/12 | Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 08 series of amendments to Regulation No. 17 Proposal to clarify the testing of seats with and without head restraints. This proposal would allow alternatives at the request of the manufacturer by clarifying that under testing of a bench seat with three seating positions and two head restraints, a moment of 3 x 373Nm shall be applied to the back of seats and of 2 x 373Nm to the head restraints: (a) If the manufacturer wants to comply with the test requirements of paragraph 6.2. (strength of the seat-back), by the test of head restraint performance of paragraph 6.4., they choose to apply 53 daNm to each seat back without head restraint and 89 daN to each head restraint. In this case only one test shall be performed. (b) If the manufacturer chooses not to apply 53 daNm, during the test of paragraph 6.4., the seat back strength test of paragraph 6.2. has to be performed in addition to the test of paragraph 6.4.
GRSP-61-10 | Proposal for a corrigendum to UN Regulation No. 17 Proposal to correct the reference to paragraph 5.1.3. in paragraph 5.2.3.2. to read 5.2.3.
GRSP-61-19/Rev.1 | Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 17 Proposal to clarify that seat belt components such as retractors shall not sustain damage during testing according to Annex 9 of UN R17. Presently, these components have occasionally been damaged during testing such that their functionality has been impaired. In order to ensure adequate occupant safety, this proposal would require all safety-belt components to be included in the test installation, clarifies that such damage is not acceptable, and requires post-test inspection.
GRSP-61-26 | Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 08 series of amendments to Regulation No. 17 Proposal to eliminate divergent interpretations of paragraph 6.4. with regard to the testing for head restraint performance of a bench seat with three seating positions and two head restraints. Under this condition, the proposal would require application of a moment of 3 x 373 Nm to the back of the seats and of 2 x 373 Nm to the head restraints. The manufacturer may request to apply 53 daNm to each seat back without head restraint and 89 daNm to each head restraint in order to comply with the requirements of paragraph 6.2. on the strength of the seat back during this test. If the manufacturer does not opt to apply these forces, then the test procedure specified in paragraph 6.2. must be carried out in addition to the head restraint testing under paragraph 6.4.
11. Regulation No. 22 (Protective helmets)
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.

12. Regulation No. 25 (Head restraints)
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.
13. Regulation No. 44 (Child restraints systems)
GRSP/2017/13 | Proposal for Supplement 13 to the 04 series of amendments 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.
