Session 173 | Geneva | 14-17 Nov 2017
UN R48 Installation of LightingWP.29/2017/110 | Proposal to delete transitional provision subparagraphs that only apply to the 05 series of amendments to UN R48, but were erroneously kept in the 06 series of amendments. 48 59 14876 932
UN R12 Steering MechanismWP.29/2017/118 | Proposal to enable approval testing under UN R137 as an alternative to UN R12 in order to avoid redundant testing requirements. The proposal adds references to the steering gear provisions of UN R137 (full width frontal impact) as a compliance alternative in parallel to the current references similarly allowing compliance via provisions in UN R94 (offset deformable barrier frontal impact). 12 22 14894 932
UN R14 Safety-Belt/ISOFIX AnchoragesWP.29/2017/128 | Proposal to transfer all ISOFIX requirements from UN R14 into a new UN Regulation. 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. 14 25 14904 932
UN R16 Safety belt systemsWP.29/2017/120 | For the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval, a UN Regulation is split in two regulations, UN Regulation No. 14-08 series of amendments including only adult safety belt anchorages and a new regulation UN Regulation No. [XX] will include all requirements for child restraint anchorages. Accordingly, this proposal would update the references to UN Regulation No. 14 in UN Regulation No. 16 in order to recognize child restraint system anchorages installed on the vehicle and approved under the new regulation. 16 27 14895 932
UN R17 Strength of SeatsWP.29/2017/122 | Proposal to clarify the testing of seats with and without head restraints. This proposal would allow alternatives at the request of the manufacturer by clarifying that under testing of a bench seat with three seating positions and two head restraints, a moment of 3 × 373Nm shall be applied to the back of seats and of 2 × 373Nm to the head restraints:<ol class="alpha"><li>If the manufacturer wants to comply with the test requirements of paragraph 6.2. (strength of the seat-back), by the test of head restraint performance of paragraph 6.4., they choose to apply 53 daNm to each seat back without head restraint and 89 daN to each head restraint. In this case only one test shall be performed.</li><li>If the manufacturer chooses not to apply 53 daNm, during the test of paragraph 6.4., the seat back strength test of paragraph 6.2. has to be performed in addition to the test of paragraph 6.4.</li></ol> 17 28 14897 932
UN R43 Safety GlazingWP.29/2017/111 | 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. 43 54 14879 932
UN R44 Child Restraint SystemsWP.29/2017/123 | Proposal to amend UN R44 in line with the proposal to amend UN R14 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. 44 55 14899 932
UN R46 Indirect VisionWP.29/2017/113 | Proposal to correct paragraph 16.1.3.1. as follows: "The minimum and the average magnification factors of the CMS, in both horizontal and vertical directions shall not be lower than the <strike>minimum average</strike> magnification factor<b>s</b> indicated below." 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). 46 57 14881 932
UN R49 Diesel/CNG/LNG Engine EmissionsWP.29/2017/129 | Proposal to correct and clarify the text, including to<ol class="alpha"><li>correct the constants for equation (34) to calculate exhaust mass flow using carbon balance method,</li><li>correct constants used for CVS verification,</li><li>correct the formula for regression analysis according to Annex 4, Appendix 3, and</li><li>correct the rise time (to 3.5 s from 2.5 s) for the PEM analyzers under paragraph A.2.2.1. of the 06 series.</li></ol> 49 60 14927 932
UN R49 Diesel/CNG/LNG Engine EmissionsWP.29/2017/130 | Proposal to introduce provisions to align UN R49 with recently introduced stage D EU legislation in order enable manufacturers to continue to utilize the provisions in paragraph 4 of Annex 9A to approve light commercial vehicles with a light duty OBD architecture under this regulation. This proposal incorporates all of the provisions of the latest amendment to EU legislation. As stage D is unrelated to OBD, the proposal is to make stage C and all subsequent stages equivalent to EOBD 6-2. The proposal corrects<ol class="alpha"><li>the constants for equation (34) to calculate exhaust mass flow using carbon balance method,</li><li>the constants used for CVS verification,</li><li>the formula for regression analysis according to Annex 4, Appendix 3, and</li><li>the rise time (to 3.5 s from 2.5 s) for the PEM analyzers under paragraph A.2.2.1. of the 06 series.</li></ol> 49 60 14928 932
UN R110 CNG/LNG System ComponentsWP.29/2017/114 | Proposal to correct the definition of “manual valve”, including deletion of the phrase “rigidly fixed to the cylinder or tank”. The definition of the manual valve as part of the accessories fitted to the container or tank (para. 4.16.) is different from the definition specified in paragraph 4.22. The proposed editorial change aims at clarifying the text of these definitions. 110 121 14892 932
UN R110 CNG/LNG System ComponentsWP.29/2017/115 | Proposal to correct the definition of “manual valve”, including deletion of the phrase “rigidly fixed to the cylinder or tank”. The definition of the manual valve as part of the accessories fitted to the container or tank (para. 4.16.) is different from the definition specified in paragraph 4.22. The proposed editorial change aims at clarifying the text of these definitions. The proposal also introduces provisions for cargo-compartment refrigeration systems connected to the compressed natural gas (CNG) and/or liquefied natural gas (LNG) system(s). 110 121 14893 932
UN R121 Hand Controls, Tell-tales and IndicatorsWP.29/2017/116 | Proposal to add a telltale and symbols for “Accident Emergency Call System (AECS)” and to align UN R121 with the 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 16:<ol class="alpha"><li>the term “seat belt” is replaced by “safety belt”,</li><li>the symbol for safety belt, defined in item 21 of Table 1 in the Regulation, may be displayed in different colours to convey different meanings. Therefore, the existing footnote 18 has been added to item 21, and</li><li>this symbol may be replaced by different symbols for seats other than those of the front row. Therefore, a new footnote 22 is added to item 21.</li></ol>In addition, paragraph 5.1.5. is modified and paragraph 5.1.7. introduced to take into consideration the content of GRSP/59, page 24, regarding paragraphs 8.4.3.2.1. and 8.4.4. on safety-belt reminders for occupants of rear seat row(s). This proposal does not change any of the technical requirements of UN R121. 121 132 14878 932
UN R121 Hand Controls, Tell-tales and IndicatorsWP.29/2017/116/Corr.1 | Proposal from the WP.29 Secretariat for additional corrections to the table of tell-tales, concerning items 31 (Combustion pre-heat; engine start aid) and 32 (Choke (cold starting device)). 121 132 15031 932
UN R129 Enhanced Child RestraintsWP.29/2017/124 | In order to facilitate the establishment of an International Whole Vehicle Type Approval, provisions concerning requirements for child restraint systems are being extracted from UN R14 into a new regulation. Therefore, this proposal would update the references to UN R14 in UN R129 to enable recognition of anchorage approvals under the adult safety belt regulation (UN R14 as amended) and the new child restraint anchorage regulation. 129 164 14900 932
UN R129 Enhanced Child RestraintsWP.29/2017/125 | 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 working group to enable the type approval of integral and non-integral Enhanced Child Restraint Systems equipped with an impact shield. Lastly, the proposal would introduce a provision prohibiting the use of the Unique Identifier allowed under the 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. 129 164 14901 932
UN R129 Enhanced Child RestraintsWP.29/2017/126 | 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. 129 164 14902 932
UN R134 Hydrogen Fuel Cell SafetyWP.29/2017/127 | Proposal to<ol class="alpha"><li>align the regulation with legislation of the European Union, United States of America, and Japan,<li>clarify the test procedure, including ambient temperature provisions,</li><li>reduce unnecessary time and cost demands of the COP test procedures,</li><li>apply the minimum burst pressure BP<sub>min</sub> as the pressure limit in the hydrostatic pressure rupture test for COP batch testing, and</li><li>delete the phrase "and in no case less than the value necessary to meet the stress ratio requirements" erroneously introduced into paragraph 9.3.2.1.</li></ol> 134 195 14903 932
UN R17 Strength of SeatsWP.29/2017/121 | Proposal to correct the reference to paragraph 5.1.3. in paragraph 5.2.3.2. to read 5.2.3. 17 28 14896 932
UN R43 Safety GlazingWP.29/2017/112 | Proposal for editorial corrections to align the definition on plastic glazing between the original English version and the French translation as well as of the communication annex on principal/secondary characteristics for laminated-glass windscreens. 43 54 14880 932
UN R43 Safety GlazingWP.29/2017/117 | Proposal for editorial corrections to align the definition on plastic glazing between the original English version and the French translation as well as of the communication annex on principal/secondary characteristics for laminated-glass windscreens. 43 54 14877 932
UN R0 International Whole Vehicle Type ApprovalWP.29/2017/108 | 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. 0 145 14872 932
UN R144 Accident Emergency Call SystemsWP.29/2017/132 | 144 192 14822 932
UN R145 ISOFIX anchorage systemsWP.29/2017/133 | Proposal to consolidate provisions concerning ISOFIX anchorages systems, ISOFIX top tether anchorages and i-Size seating positions removed from Regulation No. 14 in a new regulation. This change removes obstacles to the inclusion of UN R14 into Annex 4 of the future UN Regulation No. 0 of the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA). 145 229 14905 932
