30. The expert from FIA presented GRSG-104-49 underlining the need to review the requirements of UN Regulation No. 58 for an improved and effective passenger vehicle occupant protection in the event of a rear impact with a heavy duty vehicle. He also introduced the position of his organization on this subject (GRSG-104-50). GRSG welcomed that information.

31. Recalling the discussion on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2011/19 at the previous session of GRSG, the expert from Germany gave some preliminary information (GRSG-104-51) on a cost-benefit analysis carried out in Germany on this subject. He volunteered to send the final report of the study, once published, to all GRSG experts. GRSG agreed to resume consideration at its next session in October 2013, on the basis of a revised proposal to be submitted by Germany taking into account the results of the cost-benefit analysis.

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.
