7. The expert from OICA introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2022/2 to allow for the possibility of granting type-approvals to the M3 Class I vehicle category (which are not yet part of the scope of UN Regulation No. 118). She explained that the proposal aimed to introduce M3 Class I vehicles into the current scope of the UN Regulation on a voluntary basis. Moreover, she explained that this proposal would ensure that interpretations did not differ among Type Approval Authorities, and therefore provided the same level playing field for vehicle manufacturer’s requests, especially in the case of tenders.
8. GRSG adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2022/2, not amended. The secretariat was requested to submit the proposal as Supplement 1 to the 04 series of amendment to UN Regulation No. 118 (Burning behaviour of materials), for consideration and vote at the November 2022 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1.
