Documentation Discussion/Report

39. The expert from EC, introduced GRSP-65-12, covering the same subjects introduced under agenda items 14, 15 and 28 (a) on frontal impact with focus on restraint systems. GRSP agreed to hand over GRSP-65-12 to the TF (see paras. 28 and 29 above).

40. The expert from CI reminded GRSP also to include the L7 category of vehicles as proposed at the previous sessions. He announced an official proposal to cover this category of vehicles by the December 2019 session of GRSP. The expert from IMMA argued that the L7 category of vehicles was too broad and suggested that a clear definition be established in the Consolidated Resolution on the Construction of Vehicles (R.E.3). He also questioned the huge growth of L7 categories as announced by GlobalNCAP. The expert of GlobalNCAP insisted that his statement was based on data published by the UK Transport Research Laboratory (TRL) which indicated L7 quadricycles as part of the future of mobility. The expert of EC, informed GRSP that provisions of UN Regulation No. 137 on L7 category of vehicles would not be mandatory in the European Union but would request voluntary testing. Finally, GRSP agreed to resume discussion on this subject at its December 2019 session.

55. The expert from Japan, on behalf of the IWVTA Ambassador of GRSP, informed GRSP about IWVTA IWG progress and introduced GRSP-65-10 on the six UN Regulations that GRSP had been asked to prioritise as candidates to be inserted in Annex IV of UN Regulation No. 0: UN Regulations Nos. 44, 129, 134, 135, 137, and 145. The expert from CLEPA stated that UN Regulation No. 129 should also be on the priority list to protect children, even though some countries were still considering UN Regulation No. 44. GRSP agreed in principle with the priority list proposed by GRSP-65-10 and agreed to resume discussion on this subject at its December 2019 session.
