21. The expert from Japan presented GRSG-104-47 justifying the amendments proposed in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2013/4 to prevent vehicles from fire risks under certain conditions in the event of a rear collision. GRSG noted a number of comments. GRSG also noted a general concern to avoid options or alternatives in the text of UN Regulations.

22. Following the discussion, GRSG agreed to resume consideration of this proposal at its next session and invited the expert from Japan to review the proposed text in view of the concern raised and to provide, if possible, further elements on costs and benefits and additional statistical data as evidence for such amendments to UN Regulation No. 34. GRSG agreed to keep ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2013/4 on the agenda as a reference document.

40. The expert from OICA presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2013/8 proposing to introduce the concept of “revision of approvals” into some UN Regulations under the responsibility of GRSG, especially UN Regulations Nos. 18, 34, 35, 43 and 58. GRSG adopted the document, not amended, and requested the secretariat to submit the amendments to WP.29 and AC.1, as part of upcoming amendments to the corresponding UN Regulations. In this respect, the document will be kept on the agenda of GRSG, pending the submission of the adopted text to WP.29 and AC.1.
