4.3. Development of the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval (IWVTA) system
WP.29/2017/108 | Draft 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.

4.7. Consideration of draft amendments to existing UN Regulations submitted by GRSG
4.7.1. Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 43
WP.29/2017/111 | Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 43 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.
4.7.2. Proposal for Corrigendum 6 to Revision 3 of UN Regulation No. 43
WP.29/2017/112 | Proposal for Corrigendum 6 to Revision 3 of UN Regulation No. 43 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.

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).
4.7.4. Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 110
WP.29/2017/114 | Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 110 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.
4.7.5. Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 110
WP.29/2017/115 | Proposal for Supplement 1 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 110 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).

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.
4.7.7. Proposal for Corrigendum 1 to Revision 4 of Regulation No. 43
WP.29/2017/117 | Proposal for Corrigendum 1 to Revision 4 of UN Regulation No. 43 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.
4.8. Consideration of draft amendments to existing UN Regulations submitted by GRSP
4.8.1. Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 04 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 12
WP.29/2017/118 | Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 04 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 12 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).
4.8.2. Proposal for 08 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 14 [deleted]
4.8.3. Proposal for Supplement 10 to the 06 series of amendments and Supplement 2 to the 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 16

WP.29/2017/122 | Proposal for Supplement 4 to the 08 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 17 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>
4.8.6. Proposal for Supplement 13 to the 04 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 44
WP.29/2017/123 | Proposal for Supplement 13 to the 04 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 44 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.
4.8.7. Proposal for Supplement 6 to UN Regulation No. 129
WP.29/2017/124 | Proposal for Supplement 6 to UN Regulation No. 129 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.
4.8.8. Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 129
WP.29/2017/125 | Proposal for Supplement 3 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 129 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.
4.8.9. Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 129
WP.29/2017/126 | Proposal for Supplement 2 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 129 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.
4.8.10. Proposal for Supplement 3 to UN Regulation No. 134
WP.29/2017/127 | Proposal for Supplement 3 to UN Regulation No. 134 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>
4.8.11. Proposal for 08 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 14
WP.29/2017/128 | Proposal for 08 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 14 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.
4.9. Consideration of draft amendments to existing UN Regulations submitted by GRPE
4.9.1. Proposal for Supplement 9 to the 05 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 49

4.9.2. Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 49
WP.29/2017/130 | Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 49 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>

20.1. Proposal for amendments to Special Resolution No. 2
WP.29-173-05 | Proposal to amend Special Resolution No. 2 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.
