The discussion continued in the meeting starting with Chapter 5 of Annex 5. Amendments have been included in document TFAC 02-13 Draft Agricultural Couplings_2013-06-25.
It was discussed in general whether the static testing of couplings, which is presently state of legislation in the EU up to a maximum design speed of 40 km/h should also be included in the UN Regulation. During this discussion, a common position could not be established.
Therefore it was agreed that a document with arguments to keep current EU legislation (static test) should be prepared and during the next meeting it shall be aimed at reaching consensus on this topic.
