08 Dec 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Helmets and Visors Helmets Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Protective Helmets and their Visors for Drivers and Passengers of Motor Cycles and Mopeds Proposal from the GRSP secretariat to prohibit the use of the DETA program Unique Identifier in place of the approval mark specified in UN R22 because the current mark provides important consumer information that would be lost through use of the UI. This prohibition has similarly been approved for child restraint systems (UN R44 and R129). GRSP-62-0010

08 Dec 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Commercial Vehicle Cab Occupant Protection Commercial Vehicle Cabs Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Protection of the Occupants of the Cab of a Commercial Vehicles Proposal to introduce a tolerance for the position of the loading device during the test. The loading device is required to be parallel to the x-y plane of the chassis. This proposal would add a z dimension to the x-y plane and set a tolerance such that the loading device may not deviate by more than 5° along the z-axis. GRSP-62-0011
GRSP-62-12
UN R80: Proposal for the 04 series of amendments (Germany)
08 Dec 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Seat Strength and Seat Anchorages for Large Passenger Vehicles Coach Seat Strength Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Seats of Large Passenger Vehicles and of these Vehicles with regard to the Strength of the Seats and their Anchorages Research has shown that dynamic testing under Appendix 1 is more demanding than the static testing under Appendix 5. As a result, approvals based upon static testing are not equivalent to approvals based on dynamic testing. This proposal, therefore, would delete Appendix 5. In addition, this proposal amends Appendix 1 by reducing the forward movement of the head of the manikin to 1.2 m in alignment with UN Regulation No. 14. Further, the proposal would limit the movement of the seat anchorages to 100 mm to ensure a minimum residual space for the passenger between the seats. Lastly, to ensure that seat fixations are reliably fastened after relocation, the proposal would require the necessary information to be marked directly on the seat and provided in the owner’s manual.

Proposal for collective amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 16, 94, and 137 (OICA)
11 Dec 2017 Working Party Informal Documents Safety belts and related systems Safety belt systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of: I. Safety-belts, Restraint Systems, Child Restraint Systems and ISOFIX Child Restraint Systems for Occupants of Power-driven Vehicles II. Vehicles Equipped with Safety-belts, Safety-belt Reminders, Restraint Systems, Child Restraint Systems and ISOFIX Child Restraint Systems Occupant Protection in Frontal Collisions Frontal Collision Protection Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Protection of the Occupants in the Event of a Frontal Collision Restraint System in Frontal Impact Frontal Impact ORS Uniform provisions concerning the approval of passenger cars in the event of a frontal collision with focus on the restraint system As a counterproposal to document GRSP/2017/27 submitted by the EC, OICA suggests to group all the airbag warning requirements in one single UN Regulation (i.e. UN R16); this would avoid future administrative burden when these may need adaptation. Another solution could be to simply refer, in UN R94 and UN R137, to the label defined in UN R16; OICA suggests that GRSP discusses the most suitable approach. In addition, OICA agrees with the EC proposal to better define the required label, in order to avoid potential misinterpretations. However, when it comes to the printing of the user information in a multitude of languages, OICA considers this is an unnecessary burden, with no benefit to the user. User manuals are placed in the vehicles at the point of sale and therefore in the local language(s); in the not so frequent cases whereby a vehicle, during its lifetime, ends up in a different country/language, the user will always be able to obtain the manual in his own language, if he so asks. OICA consequently proposes not to amend the current requirements on the issue of languages. GRSP-62-0014

The current text has produced differing interpretations among Technical Services with regard to which requirements apply to central seating positions in rear rows of category M<sub>1</sub> and N<sub>1</sub> vehicles and the minimum distance between two effective lower belt anchorages (L1 and L2). The proposed amendments clarify that a reduced minimum distance of 240 mm is only allowed in the case where there is only one central seating position (i.e. in a row of 3 seating positions). Rear seat rows with an even number of seats always shall have a distance of at least 350 mm.

A strict reading of paragraph 2.45. would require a second-level warning in the event of any unfastened seat-belt in a front or rear position. This proposal would clarify that the second-level warning is required depending on the individual position requirement (e.g., based on detection that a position is occupied). GRSP/2017/0024
