Engines and Positive-ignition (P.I.) Engines Fuelled with Natural Gas (NG) or Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) with regard to the Emission of Pollutants The Informal Group on Heavy-Duty Hybrids expects to deliver its final draft amendment to GTR No.4 at the January 2014 session of GRPE. This amendment would extend GTR No. 4 to include test procedures to evaluate hybrid heavy-duty vehicles. WHDC Worldwide Heavy-Duty Vehicle Emissions Certification Procedure GTR No. 4 GTR No. 4, Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure

This GTR prescribes a test cycle and test procedures to measure the emissions (including off-cycle) and fuel efficiency of light-duty vehicles. The GTR was adopted at the March 2014 session of the World Forum.

A supplemental "phase 1b" is underway to refine certain elements of the initial regulation. WP.29/AC.3 expects to consider a proposal for Amend. 1 to UN GTR No. 15 in November 2016 as result of Phase 1b activities.

A second phase is expected to address low ambient temperature, high altitude test procedures, and possibly durability and conformity issues.

A third phase would eventually include the addition of reference fuels, correlation across existing regional/national cycles, and introduction of emissions limits.

The latest draft version of the amended GTR is regularly updated by the WLTP informal working group.

The regulation is also supplemented by a gearshift calculation tool. WLTP Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Emissions Test Procedure GTR No. 15 GTR No. 15, Uniform provisions concerning the measures to be taken against the emission of gaseous and particulate pollutants from compression-ignition engines and positive ignition engines for use in vehicles Diesel/CNG/LNG Engine Emissions Diesel and CNG/LNG Engine Emissions UN Regulation No. 49 UN R49, and Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Emission of Pollutants According to Engine Fuel Requirements Together with R49, Regulation 83 addresses vehicle emissions. R83 covers emissions from all light vehicles (M1/N1) regardless of engine type and from heavier vehicles only if equipped with a gasoline engine. Under certain circumstances, R83 or R49 can apply to light vehicle CNG/LPG engines as well as to medium passenger and commercial vehicles (M2/N2) equipped with diesel engines. R83 also contains provisions specific to hybrid variations of the vehicles under its purview. Motor Vehicle Emissions Motor Vehicle Emissions UN Regulation No. 83 UN R83
