Proposal for amendments to the draft Regulation on Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (ETRTO)
GRRF/2016/44 08 Jul 2016 Working Party Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems Uniform provisions concerning the approval of vehicles with regard to their tyre pressure monitoring systems Proposal for a minor editorial correction to the text. Paragraph 4.8. should read "Annex 2 to this Regulation gives an example of approval marks." The current text refers to "examples" where there is only one provided. GRRF/2016/0044
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 13 (CLEPA)
GRRF/2017/11 05 Jul 2017 Working Party Heavy-Duty Vehicle Braking Heavy-Duty Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles of Categories M, N and O with regard to Braking UN R13 allows for the exemption of certain vehicles from the requirement for electronic stability controls (footnote 12). This proposal (following proposals GRRF/2016/27 as amended by GRRF-82-03 and proposal GRRF-83-31) seeks to clarify the scope of the exemptions to include any special purpose vehicle with a non-standard chassis. The change was prompted by a modified vehicle where use of ESC was not feasible, but where the current UN R13 language left doubt as to whether the ESC requirement was applicable. GRRF/2017/0011
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 13 (France and Germany)
GRRF/2017/12 07 Jul 2017 Working Party Heavy-Duty Vehicle Braking Heavy-Duty Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles of Categories M, N and O with regard to Braking Proposal to simplify the verification of the sufficient movement on the balancer without having to take measurements underneath the trailer in a potentially unsafe position.

Proposal for a new Regulation on uniform provisions concerning the approval of mechanical coupling components of combinations of agricultural vehicles
GRRF/2017/13 07 Jul 2017 Working Party Mechanical coupling components for agricultural vehicles Agricultural vehicle couplings Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Mechanical Coupling Components of Combinations of Agricultural Vehicles Proposal from the informal working group on Agricultural Couplings. GRRF/2017/0013
Proposal for amendments to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 78 (IMMA)
GRRF/2017/14 05 Jul 2017 Working Party Motorcycle and Moped Braking Motorcycle Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles of Categories L1, L2, L3, L4, and L5 with regard to Braking Regulation No. 53 currently allows for the activation of the stop lamp by application of the brakes only. As already presented at a session of the Working Party on Lighting and Light-Signalling (GRE) (see ECE/TRANS/WP29/GRE/2015/42), IMMA is proposing to introduce the activation of stop lamps under more conditions than the application of the service brake only, e.g. also by regenerative braking. As noted in the report of seventy-fourth session of GRE, see ECE/TRANS/WP29/GRE/74, para. 30: "the proposal might need to be accompanied by a modification of Regulation No. 78 under GRRF." Therefore, IMMA has prepared this proposal for Regulation No. 78. A revised corresponding proposal on Regulation No. 53 will also be submitted to the October 2017 session of GRE. GRRF/2017/0014
Proposal to amend Global Technical Regulation No. 3 (Italy)

Proposal for amendments to Regulations Nos. 13, 13-H and 140 (OICA)
GRRF/2017/23 07 Jul 2017 Working Party Heavy-Duty Vehicle Braking Heavy-Duty Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles of Categories M, N and O with regard to Braking Light-Duty Vehicle Braking Light Vehicle Braking Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Passenger Cars with regard to Braking Electronic Stability Control Systems ESC Systems Uniform provisions concerning the approval of passenger cars with regard to electronic stability control systems Revised proposal pursuant to GRRF discussions to enable activation of the ESC optical symbol in cases of a corrective steering function intervention when the CSF intervention is activated under the control of an ESC system. The aim is to avoid separate requirements for brake-actuated and steering-actuated vehicle stability functions (VSF) that would lead to two optical warnings where only one is necessary. This would enable use of the ESC intervention tell-tale for CSF steering intervention. GRRF/2017/0023

Proposal for draft corrigendum to UN Regulation No. 108 (Russia)
GRRF/2017/25 30 Aug 2017 Working Party 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
