Proposal for an amendment to Regulation No. 79 - Remote Control Manoeuvring (UK)
15 Sep 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Steering Equipment Steering Equipment Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to Steering Equipment Category G vehicles (defined in the Consolidated Resolution on the Construction of Vehicles (R.E.3)) have specific characteristics that enable them to achieve traction on, and to traverse over, off-road terrain that would defeat and/or damage conventional road vehicles. In some situations, it would be safer for the driver to be able to manoeuvre the vehicle from outside. This proposal seeks to permit remote manoeuvring capability provided that the vehicle is designed to operate in this environment and the off-road location is confirmed throughout the whole period that the function is in use.

30 Aug 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Retreaded Tires for Motor Vehicles Retreaded Tires Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval for the Production of Retreaded Pneumatic Tyres for Motor Vehicles and their Trailers Proposal to align the Russian text with the original English text. In the English versions, the title of Annex 1 (Communication concerning the approval or extension or refusal or withdrawal of approval or production definitely discontinued of a retreading production unit pursuant to Regulation No. 108) is essentially identical to that use for Annex 1 of UN R109. Therefore, this proposal amends the title of Annex 1 in the Russian version of UN R108 to coincide with that of the Russian version of Annex 1 in UN R109. GRRF/2017/0025
