WP.29/2012/97

Text adopted by the Working Party on Passive Safety (GRSP) to update provisions of UN Regulation No. 14 in order to delete erroneous cross-references in text, making reference only the “adjusting system” which is defined in section 2 of the Regulation.

26 Mar 2018 2018-04-30 05:46:41 UTC 5 5 07 series of amendments | Supplement 8 Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2017/58

Proposal to align UN R14 with recent changes to UN R16 on occupant restraint systems. Two “Booster Seat” fixtures (ISO/B2 and ISO/B3) were added to UN R16 to coincide with the implementation of Phase 2 of UN R129 (enhanced child restraint systems). These fixtures were developed within ISO/TC 22/SC 36/WG 2 (Child Restraint Systems) and follow the principle already established in Regulations 16 and 129 to ensure child restraint to car compatibility. An additional “Reduced-Size Rearward Facing toddler CRS” fixture (ISO/R2x) was added to facilitate compatibility in small cars/seating positions. The ISO/B2 booster seat fixture was added in the i-Size concept. Lateral facing fixtures (ISO/L1 and ISO/L2) have been upgraded.

10 Aug 2018 2018-08-17 11:02:51 UTC 5 6 08 series of amendments Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2017/128

Proposal to transfer all ISOFIX requirements from UN R14 into a new UN Regulation. Within the context of the international whole vehicle type approval program, the removal of these CRS anchorage provisions would align UN R14 with its Australian Design Rule counterpart and enable Australia to apply the revised UN R14 narrowed down to adult seat-belt anchorages only.

16 Jan 2019 2019-01-25 13:44:02 UTC 6 1 09 series of amendments Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2018/44

Proposal to clarify the text of UN R14. The current text has produced differing interpretations among Technical Services with regard to which requirements apply to central seating positions in rear rows of category M1 and N1 vehicles and the minimum distance between two effective lower belt anchorages (L1 and L2). The proposed amendments clarify that a reduced minimum distance of 240 mm is only allowed in the case where there is only one central seating position (i.e. in a row of 3 seating positions). Rear seat rows with an even number of seats always shall have a distance of at least 350 mm. Given that it entails new requirements, the proposal is presented as a new series of amendments with transitional provisions (starting from September 2019 through into 2025).
