Documentation Discussion/Report

49. The expert from Qatar recalled the discussion at the previous GRSG session on some incidents in his region involving the deactivation of the cruise control function on some vehicle types. The experts from Germany and the United Kingdom reported that no similar incidents or recall actions have been reported in their countries.

50. GRSG recommended identifying, in the case of such incidents occur, the origin of such problems, especially whether vehicle was fitted with original equipment or with an aftermarket product. Subsequently, the dealer and/or the manufacturer would have to launch a recall action of the vehicle type concerned in the case of original equipment and the broad public should be informed in the case of an aftermarket product.

51. GRSG agreed to remove this item from the agenda. The Chair invited all interested experts to send any further information on this subject directly to the delegate from Qatar (e-mail: jmnuaimi@moe.gov.qa).
