4.3. Development of the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA) system
WP.29/2017/104 | Draft UN Regulation No. 0 on uniform provisions concerning International Whole Vehicle Type Approval Proposal submitted by the informal working group on the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval for the establishment of UN Regulation No. 0 regarding the approval of whole vehicles within the framework of the 1958 Agreement. The regulations would establish an International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA) scheme whereby Contracting Parties adhering to the Regulation may issue approvals to either a limited level (L-IWVTA) or to a wider range of technical topics included in the universal level (U-IWVTA). Contracting Parties are able to apply the limited or universal IWVTA depending upon the national situation. The Universal-IWVTA (U-IWVTA) provides a greater level of certainty for vehicle manufacturers and Contracting Parties applying this UN Regulation, as the approval has to be accepted without further assessment of the technical items covered by the U-IWVTA issued. Contracting Parties applying this UN Regulation are not obliged to accept approvals to the limited level (L-IWVTA) but may do so at their choice. However, they have also to accept approvals issued pursuant to U-IWVTA. The UN Regulation includes the administrative obligations of the IWVTA scheme. It does not establish separate technical requirements but instead refers to the provisions of the separate UN Regulations.

WP.29/2017/58 | Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 14 Proposal to align UN R14 with recent changes to UN R16 on occupant restraint systems. Two “Booster Seat” fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) were added to UN R16 to coincide with the implementation of Phase 2 of UN R129 (enhanced child restraint systems). These fixtures were developed within ISO/TC 22/SC 36/WG 2 (Child Restraint Systems) and follow the principle already established in Regulations 16 and 129 to ensure child restraint to car compatibility. An additional “Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS” fixture (ISO/R2x) was added to facilitate compatibility in small cars/seating positions. The ISO/B2 booster seat fixture was added in the i-Size concept. Lateral facing fixtures (ISO/L1 and ISO/L2) have been upgraded.
4.6.2. Proposal for Supplement 9 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16
WP.29/2017/59 | Proposal for Supplement 9 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to add new CRS fixtures and otherwise align UN R16 with changes introduced through UN R129 (enhanced child restraint systems). Two “Booster Seat” fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) were added to UN R16 to coincide with the implementation of Phase 2 of UN R129. These fixtures were developed within ISO/TC 22/SC 36/WG 2 (Child Restraint Systems) and follow the principle already established in Regulations 16 and 129 to ensure child restraint to car compatibility. An additional “Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS” fixture (ISO/R2x) was added to facilitate compatibility in small cars/seating positions. The ISO/B2 booster seat fixture was added in the i-Size concept. Lateral facing fixtures (ISO/L1 and ISO/L2) have been upgraded. The proposal also corrects figure 2 in Annex 1B to show the referenced zones A and B, to add the sentence “Non-rigid material of < 50 Shore A hardness may be removed in order to demonstrate that covered or padded rigid parts are not contacted by the head or the chest of the manikin during the test.” and makes editorial improvements.
4.6.3. Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16
WP.29/2017/60 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 07 series of amendments to Regulation No. 16 Proposal to update the 07 series of amendments in line with UN R129 and changes to the 06 series (Supplements 8 and 9).

4.6.4. Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 80
WP.29/2017/61 | Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 80 Under UN R80, head restraints must comply with the requirements of UN R25. This proposal updates the reference to UN R25 to specify compliance according to the 04 series of amendments (from the current reference to the 03 series of amendments). This change thus updates UN R80 to incorporate changes in impact-energy dissipation criteria made to UN R25 pursuant to changes allowing greater forward displacement of occupants under UN R16.
4.6.5. Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 129

4.10.2. Proposal for Supplement 28 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6
WP.29/2017/73 | Proposal for Supplement 28 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 Proposal to clarify the provisions for sequential activation of direction indicator lighting, especially concerning the interpretation of the phrase "one continuous line". The proposal, developed by a special task force, clarifies the type definition and reduces the need for dividing sequential direction indicators into different types. This proposal revises the text to be more technology-neutral, removing specifications on how light sources are activated to focus on the visual performance as sequential lighting. The amendment of sub-paragraph 5.6.<notextile>(c)</notextile> of UN R6 clarifies what kind of vertical movement is not allowed in the sequential direction indicators, proposing a new new term “vertical oscillations” instead of the current wording “repeating alternation in the vertical direction”. The meaning is that not more than one change of direction upwards or downwards along the vertical axis is possible. The “continuous signal” is also defined in sub-paragraph 5.6.(c) of Regulation No. 6. The allowed distance between adjacent or tangential distinct parts is limited 50mm (which differs in this case from UN R48 specifications). Transitional provisions have been included.
