12. The expert from France introduced a proposal that aimed to clarify the interpretation of the requirements concerning the variation of the sound emitted proportionally with the vehicle speed (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRBP/2021/14). She also proposed to clarify the testing requirements (GRBP-74-05). GRBP supported in principle these proposals, subject to replacement in GRBP-74-05, paragraph 22.214.171.124. of “≥” with “greater or equal to”, but in view of other ongoing activities on UN Regulation No. 138 decided to await further amendment proposals with the aim to combine them into a single package before submitting to WP.29 and AC.1.
13. The expert from Switzerland proposed to prohibit operation of the acoustic vehicle alerting system (AVAS) outside the specification speed range from 0 km/h up to and inclusive 20 km/h (GRBP-74-02). The experts from Germany, ISO and OICA (GRBP-74-28) commented on this proposal. GRBP agreed to revert to this issue at the next session.
