Draft Amendment 2 (Phase 2) of the global technical regulation No. 9 (USA)
GRSP/2017/3 17 Feb 2017 Working Party Pedestrian Safety Pedestrian Safety (GTR) Global Technical Regulation No. 9: Pedestrian Safety Proposal to modify document GRSP/2014/15 presenting Amendment 2 to GTR No. 9. Amendment 2 would introduce the flexible pedestrian legform impactor (FlexPLI) as a single harmonized test tool. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has expressed concern whether the injury assessment reference values (IARV) proposed in Amendment 2 will be able to meet the needs for injury mitigation in the United States of America. In order to allow the amendment to move forward, the United States proposes to accept the IARV while noting in the statement of technical rationale and justification its continuing research into the IARVs and the possibility of a future proposal to amend the values should this prove warranted.

Collective amendments to Regulations Nos. 44 and 129 (Netherlands)
GRSP/2017/4 16 Feb 2017 Working Party Child Restraint Systems Child Restraint Systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Restraining Devices for Child Occupants of Power-driven Vehicles ("Child Restraint System") Enhanced Child Restraint Systems Enhanced Child Restraints Regulation on uniform provisions concerning the approval of enhanced Child Restraint Systems used onboard of motor vehicles. 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/2017/0004
