UN R80 | Revision 2 | Amendment 1 (2016)
5 Feb 2016 2016-02-10 12:48:43 UTC 2 1 03 series of amendments | Supplement 1 Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2015/49

Proposal to amend the scope and clarify the transitional provisions to avoid misinterpretations for the installation of side-facing seats in category M3 vehicles. The proposal exempts vehicles exceeding 10 tonnes from the prohibition on side-facing seat provided the seat meet conditions specified in the 03 series of amendments to the Regulation.

UN R80 | Revision 2 | Amendment 2 (2017)
26 Jul 2017 2017-08-15 13:07:28 UTC 2 2 03 series of amendments | Supplement 2 Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2016/103

UN R80, paragraph 7.4.4. specifies that passengers in side-facing seats “shall be safeguarded by a vehicle part (e.g. partition, wall or seat back of a forward-facing seat) forward of the foremost side-facing seat”. Germany has determined that the current text has been misinterpreted with regard to the intended requirement for a safety device that does not break and maintains its capability to retain a passenger’s body in the event of an accident. This proposal clarifies that such any such structure “shall retain its safeguard function during testing”.

UN R80 | Revision 2 | Amendment 3 (2018)
27 Apr 2018 2018-05-04 10:46:28 UTC 2 3 03 series of amendments | Supplement 3 Based upon the adopted proposal: WP.29/2017/61

Under UN R80, head restraints must comply with the requirements of UN R25. This proposal updates the reference to UN R25 to specify compliance according to the 04 series of amendments (from the current reference to the 03 series of amendments). This change thus updates UN R80 to incorporate changes in impact-energy dissipation criteria made to UN R25 pursuant to changes allowing greater forward displacement of occupants under UN R16.
