26. The expert from France, Chair of the frontal impact (FI) IWG, introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/7 to align the UN Regulation No. 94 with the provisions of new draft UN Regulation (full-width frontal collision) on the protection of older occupants. GRSP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/7, as amended by Annex III (including GRSP-57-02) to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/7 as amended to WP.29 and AC.1, for consideration and vote at their November 2015 sessions as draft 03 series of amendment to UN Regulation No. 94.

27. The expert from the Netherlands introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2015/13 aligning the provisions of UN Regulation No. 94 with the new provisions on Camera-Monitor Systems provisions in UN Regulation No. 46 (Devices for indirect vision). GRSP adopted the proposal, as reproduced by Annex III (including GRSP-57-02), and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2015 sessions, as draft Supplement 6 to the 02 series of amendments and as part of (see para. 26) the draft 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 94.

33. The expert from France, Chair of the Frontal Impact IWG, introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/11 as the final draft UN Regulation on frontal impact with focus on the restraint system, with a thorax compression criterion (ThCC) of 42 mm. He also introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/12, amended by GRSP-57-01 to require ThCC limit at 34 mm in the 01 series of amendments to the UN Regulation. The expert from Japan suggested also aligning the provisions of the draft UN Regulation with the new Camera-Monitor Systems provisions of UN Regulation No. 46 (see para. 27 above). GRSP noted also the lack of availability of drawings and specification of the 5th percentile female dummy and agreed to insert a footnote as a reminder to interested parties to provide the above mentioned specifications in time for adoption of the draft UN Regulation by WP.29 and AC.1. GRSP considered GRSP-57-29-Rev.1, amending ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/11 and incorporating all the comments received during the discussion (including GRSP-57-02). Finally, GRSP adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/11 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/12, both as amended by Annex V to this report. The secretariat was requested to submit for consideration and vote to WP.29 and AC.1 at their November 2015 sessions:
(i) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/11 as new draft UN Regulation on frontal impact with focus on the restraint system and
(ii) ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/12 as 01 series of amendments to the new UN Regulation.

The expert from France introduced GRSP-57-31, for information only, to provide further justification of the biomechanical chest deflection thresholds introduced in the draft UN Regulation.

41. GRSP noted the request of WP.29 (WP.29-165-16) to change the definition of Rechargeable Energy Storage System (REESS) in Rechargeable Electric Energy Storage System and maintaining the same acronym REESS in all UN Regulations under GRSP responsibilities (where REESS is present). It was noted that this was needed to avoid confusion with Rechargeable Storage Systems of different kinds (such as mechanical storage systems). Accordingly, GRSP adopted GRSP-57-02 as reproduced in Annex VI of the report. The secretariat was requested to submit it to the November 2015 session of WP.29 and AC.1 as draft: (i) Supplement 4 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 12 (Steering mechanism), (ii) as part of (see para. 27) Supplement 6 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 94 (Frontal collision protection), (iii) 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 94 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/7) (see para. 26), (iv) Supplement 5 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 95 (Lateral collision protection), (v) Supplement 3 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 100 (Battery electric vehicle safety), (vii) amendment to draft Regulation on electric vehicles of category L (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2015/69) and (viii) amendment to draft Regulation on uniform provisions for the approval of passenger cars in the event of a frontal collision with focus on the restraint system (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSP/2015/11) (see para. 33).
