Core motorcycle regulations for APEC economies

Dr NM Rogers

IMMA Secretary General

the background
The background
  • The WTO requires signatories to use international regulations/standards
  • These must be produced by a body open to all WTO members, i.e. the UN
  • In the UN this means WP29
  • WP29 looks after the 1958 (ECE) and 1998 (GTR) Agreements
  • Only the 1958 Agreement provides mutual recognition
choosing the regulations
Choosing the regulations
  • Safety and protection of the environment favour the adoption of the latest, most stringent regulations
  • Economics favours:
    • vehicles which the consumers can afford to buy
    • regulations which the administration can afford to implement
  • Public transport is off-set by private transport
  • The right compromise is a political decision
imma s recommendations
IMMA’s recommendations
  • IMMA represents the following countries:
    • The European Union: (Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom)
    • India
    • APEC Economies: (Australia, Canada, Indonesia, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Chinese Taipei, USA)
  • IMMA Members recommend the following ECE Regulations as the core for meeting the Bogor declaration goal of free trade by 2020:
lighting and emc
Lighting and EMC
  • Reflectors: ECE Reg 3.02
  • Filament lamps: ECE Reg 37.03
  • Lamps (not headlamps): ECE Reg 50.00
  • Installation of lighting: ECE Reg 53.01
  • Headlamps: ECE Reg 112.00 or 113.00
  • Electro-magnetic compatibility: ECE Reg 10.02
other items
Other items
  • Audible warning devices: ECE Reg 28.00
  • Speedometers: ECE Reg 39.00
  • Emissions: ECE Reg 40.01
  • Noise: ECE Reg 41.03
  • Controls and telltales: ECE Reg 60.00 (without Annex 3)
  • Anti-theft devices: ECE Reg 62.00
  • Tyres: ECE Reg 75.00
  • Braking: ECE Reg 78.02
  • Rear-view mirrors: ECE Reg 81.00
alternatives
Alternatives
  • Vehicles meeting more stringent requirements should automatically be accepted
  • The WTO allows alternatives to these regulations at national level, e.g. Australia accepts USA Regulations
  • Later, once developed, Economies may use GTRs, e.g. the motorcycle GTRs currently being developed on emissions and brakes.

(In any case, GTRs will be transposed into the ECE Regulations)

summary
Summary
  • WTO requires the use of international regulations (means ECE or GTRs)
  • 16/RTHP (April 1999) agreed to develop the Core lists
  • IMMA first presented this list at 18/RTHP (April 2000)
  • Past RTHP meetings have discussed the list, it is time for an agreement in principle
conclusions
Conclusions
  • IMMA therefore recommends that all APEC economies accept the technical content of these Regulations as the common basis for trade
  • IMMA and its Members are ready to assist APEC Economies in introducing the ECE Regulations into their national legislation, in the most appropriate way
