Proposal to amend Special Resolution No. 2 (OICA)
07 Nov 2017 World Forum Informal Documents Special Resolution No. 2: 1998 Agreement Improvement SR 2: 1998 Agreement Improvement Special Resolution No. 2 - Improvement in the implementation of the 1998 Global Agreement Proposal to clarify the definition of "Option" as used within Global Technical Regulations and to introduce the concept of "Alternative". In principle, the proposal seeks to distinguish between protocols for the same requirement that allow divergent compliance thresholds (e.g., differing stringency) and those that provide equivalent assessment of performance through different means. "Option" would refer to the former while "Alternative" would refer to the latter. In the case of one or more options, the proposal would require Contracting Parties to work towards the elimination of the divergent performance requirements. WP.29-173-0005

Draft UN Regulation No. 0 on uniform provisions concerning the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval
23 Aug 2017 World Forum Formal Documents International Whole Vehicle Type Approval System (IWVTA) International Whole Vehicle Type Approval UN Regulation No. 0 on uniform provisions concerning the 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.29/2017/0108

24 Aug 2017 World Forum Formal Documents Safety Glazing Materials Safety Glazing Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Safety Glazing Materials and their Installation on Vehicles Proposal to align the headform test with the deceleration measurement and the test of resistance to abrasion with ISO 15082:2016-11, including changes to the test details, correction of the headform calibration values, and the introduction of abrasion reference materials. The latter is combined with an abrasive-wheel qualification and a correction calculation (for plastic materials only). The proposal also amends Figure 2a of Annex 21 to better reflect the meaning of paragraph 2.4.2.2. of Annex 21, mainly to clarify the lateral limits of any opaque obscuration in this area.

The latter reference to "minimum average" should be deleted since the subsequent text provides the required minimum and average magnification factors. The proposal also corrects the cross-reference in paragraph 6.3.3.2. where “the test shall satisfy the conditions laid down in paragraph 6.1.3. of this Regulation” should refer to paragraph 6.1.1.3. and aligns the communication form with with the scope of the Regulation regarding vehicle categories (adding category L).

Proposal to amend UN R129 in line with the proposal to amend UN R14 (document GRSP/2017/8) in order to separate child restraint provisions (including ISOFIX anchorage provisions) into a new UN Regulation. The ISOFIX amendment to UN R14 has been introduced to facilitate the establishment of the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA) regulation by limiting the scope of UN R14 to adult safety belts. The proposal also incorporates amendments developed by the CRS informal group to enable the type approval of integral and non-integral Enhanced Child Restraint Systems equipped with an impact shield. Lastly, the proposal introduces a provision to prohibit use of the Unique Identifier allowed under Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement as an alternative to the current approval mark. In the case of child restraint systems, the approval mark contains important information for users. WP.29/2017/0126

Within the context of the international whole vehicle type approval program, the removal of these CRS anchorage provisions would align UN R14 with its Australian Design Rule counterpart and enable Australia to apply the revised UN R14 narrowed down to adult seat-belt anchorages only.
