Documentation Discussion/Report

19. The expert from Germany recalled the discussion at the previous session of GRSG on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2011/19 proposing to insert into UN Regulation No. 58 more stringent requirements for rear under run protection devices. He reported on the outcome of the recent ad hoc group meeting and announced the intention to undertake, in early 2013, a cost-benefit analysis on this subject. GRSG agreed to resume consideration at its next session in April 2013, on the basis of a revised proposal to be submitted by Germany taking into account the results of the cost-benefit analysis.

27. The expert from OICA presented GRSG-103-26, proposing to introduce the concept of “revision of approvals” into some Regulations under the responsibility of GRSG, especially UN Regulations Nos. 18, 26, 34, 35, 43, 58 and 61. GRSG welcomed the proposal and agreed to give a detailed consideration at its next session in April 2013. The expert from France stated that the provisions proposed for UN Regulations Nos. 26 and 61 could be removed from GRSG-103-26 in the event that the World Forum adopts, at its forthcoming session in November 2012, documents ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2012/86 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2012/89. The secretariat was requested to distribute GRSG-103-26 with an official symbol, taking into account the revised general guidelines for UN regulatory procedures (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1044/Rev.1).
