1998 Global AgreementOperating Principals

The Agreement requires that development of global technical regulations be open and transparent, and provide opportunity for views and arguments to be represented at:

  • meetings of WP.29 and Working Parties by organizations granted consultative status,
  • meetings of WP.29 Working Parties and the Executive Committee.
candidate global regulations
CANDIDATE GLOBAL REGULATIONS
  • A Contracting Party may propose any existing regulation within its jurisdiction as a candidate for global harmonization.
  • The regulation is listed in the Compendium of Candidate Global Regulations by a vote of one-third of the Contracting Parties, including either Japan, the European Community or the United States.
  • The Compendium will expand and contract in direct proportion to the existence of candidate regulations awaiting global harmonization.

GLOBAL TECHNICAL REGULATIONS

The development of a new global technical regulation requires a proposal from a Contracting Party that includes:

  • an explanation of the objective of the proposed new global technical regulation;
  • a narrative description or, if available, the draft text of the proposed new regulation ;
  • any available documentation that may facilitate the analysis of the safety, health or environmental issues to be addressed .
global technical regulations15
GLOBAL TECHNICAL REGULATIONS

The development of a new global technical regulation includes:

  • assessment of best available technology and economic feasibility;
  • a comparative evaluation of the potential benefits and cost effectiveness of alternative regulatory requirements;
  • development of the test method(s) by which compliance is to be demonstrated.
global technical regulations16
GLOBAL TECHNICAL REGULATIONS
  • To adopt a new global technical regulation, there must be a consensus vote. If any Contracting Party votes against a recommended global technical regulation, it will not be adopted.
  • Once adopted, a harmonized or new global technical regulations will be established in a Global Registry under the United Nations. The Registry serves as a repository of global technical regulations that can be adopted by countries from around the world.

  • Alternativelevels of stringency for developing countries.
  • In this way, all countries, including the least developed, can participate in the development and adoption of global technical regulations.

  • A Party that does not adopt the ”global’’ regulation into law must report the basis for such action to the UN Secretary-General.
