04 Oct 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Indirect Vision Devices Indirect Vision Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Devices for Indirect Vision and of Motor Vehicles with regard to the Installation of these Devices Proposal to clarify the camera monitor provisions with regard to the use of image overlays. The current English text can be interpreted to allow overlays only when the vehicle is moving in reverse. In particular, this resulted in an unambiguous translation into French allowing overlays only when the vehicle is in reverse gear. The original intent was to limit overlays to rear views of the vehicle regardless of the moving vehicle direction. Therefore, this proposal clarifies the English and French texts. GRSG-113-0017

OICA comments on document GRSG/2017/22 concerning UN R67 (OICA)
04 Oct 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Liquefied Petroleum Gas Equipment LPG Equipment Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific Equipment of Motor Vehicles Using Liquefied Petroleum Gases in their Propulsion System II. A Vehicle Fitted with Specific Equipment for the Use of Liquefied Petroleum Gases in its Propulsion System with regard to the Installation of such Equipment OICA proposal of modifications to the Turkey proposal to insert new provisions on the location on the vehicle of the filling unit, marking of the LPG container date of production, and a limitation on the maximum service life of LPG containers to 15 years. Given that the risks concern containers located outside and under the vehicle, OICA proposes focusing discussion of the 15-year service life on such containers. In addition, the proposal would introduce new requirements and therefore would require transitional provisions. GRSG-113-0019
GRSG-113-20
Proposal for amendments to UN Regulation No. 110 - Periodic requalification (OICA)
04 Oct 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific components of motor vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system; II. Vehicles with regard to the installation of specific components of an approved type for the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system. Proposal to improve provisions for the visual inspection of CNG cylinders, LNG tanks, and their accessories. Germany has proposed (document GRSG-112-33) the prohibition of components or parts of protective housing which must be disassembled during inspection. Italy has proposed (document GRSG-112-28) that visual inspection of cylinders Include access inside any protective covers of the cylinders. Based upon field experience, OICA believes that corrosion damage between support straps, brackets, and pads and the cylinder can be readily identified during visual inspection. Such corrosion requires cylinder replacement. Therefore, OICA proposes clarifications to inspection procedures to address the German and Italian concerns. GRSG-113-0020
GRSG-113-21
Proposal for amendments to UN Regulation No. 110 - Transitional provisions (OICA)

Proposal for Supplement 6 to the original series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 116 (OICA)
06 Oct 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Protection of Vehicles Against Unauthorized Use Anti-theft and Alarm Systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Protection of Motor Vehicles Against Unauthorized Use Proposal to delete references to European standards for radio transmissions (paragraphs 6.2.3., 7.2.3. and 8.2.2.). Manufacturers must comply with legal requirements established by local authorities around the world. Therefore, the references to European norms present one instance of local requirements rather than an international set of agreed requirements. GRSG-113-0022

Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 110 - CNG accumulator (Netherlands)
06 Oct 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific components of motor vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system; II. Vehicles with regard to the installation of specific components of an approved type for the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system. Proposal for further discussion concerning technical advances in the use of CNG accumulators as an intermediate technology for promoting high, stable pressure in CNG engine injection systems. The CNG accumulator is used to stabilize the gas pressure and to allow engine operation whenever the LNG supply system is not able to deliver fuel. This proposal would define requirements to enable the certification of these components. GRSG-113-0024
GRSG-113-25
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 110 - CNG compressor (Netherlands)
06 Oct 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific components of motor vehicles using compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system; II. Vehicles with regard to the installation of specific components of an approved type for the use of compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) in their propulsion system. Proposal for discussion to enable the certification of CNG compressor components. Due to density and temperature constraints, LNG fuel systems require technologies to warm the LNG fuel to reach temperatures and pressures suitable for the engine. In some configurations, this involves the use of CNG compressors. Therefore, this proposal seeks to enable use of this technology through establishment of requirements to ensure safety. GRSG-113-0025
GRSG-113-26
Proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 110 - Annex 5 references (Netherlands)
06 Oct 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Compressed and Liquefied Natural Gas System Components CNG/LNG System Components Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I.

Proposal to clarify the test procedure to be applied in assessing compliance with the requirement for "compatibility with heat exchange fluids of non-metallic parts" Annex 5Q is part of UN Regulation No. 110. In Annex 4D, the wording "Compatibility with heat exchange fluids" is used but there is no reference to the applicable tests. The proposal clarifies that the "LNG heat exchanger – vaporizer" falls within Annex 5Q. The proposal correspondingly clarifies the general overview Figure 1-2, with all tests from Annex 5, and Table 5.1 in Annex 5. GRSG-113-0026

14 Jul 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Liquefied Petroleum Gas Equipment LPG Equipment Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Specific Equipment of Motor Vehicles Using Liquefied Petroleum Gases in their Propulsion System II. A Vehicle Fitted with Specific Equipment for the Use of Liquefied Petroleum Gases in its Propulsion System with regard to the Installation of such Equipment Proposal to improve the specifications for LPG multi-valves in response to an LPG vehicle fire that resulted in injuries to first responders. A German Type Approval Authority (KBA) analysis concluded that the hose connecting the PRV/PRD of the multi-valve to the gaseous phase was damaged and hose-fragments blocked both PRV and PRD such that pressure could not be adequately reduced. The PRV and PRD were activated, but the fragments considerably reduced the effective section of the relevant tubing and prevented the release of pressure. This proposal aims to prevent such occurrences. GRSG/2017/0016
