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.", "GRSP-63-17 | Proposal to amend to document GRSP/2018/10 in order to clarify the torque specification for attaching seats and to delay the proposed entry into force.", "GRSP-64-19/Add.1 | ", "GRSP-64-22 | Proposal to delete Appendix 5 as a basis for type approval and thereby end static testing as a compliance option.", "GRSP-64-23 | Proposal to amend Appendix 1 by reducing the forward movement of the head of the manikin to 1.2 m in alignment with UN R14. The proposal would also limit the movement of the seat anchorages to 100 mm to ensure a minimum residual space for the passenger between the seats.
