in June 2008(145th).

  • 145th Plenary Meeting

- Total 14 draft amendments to existing ECE regulations were adopted

- One GTR (ESC : Electronic Stability Control) was adopted as the 8th



2. General Statements


  • Held 145th session from 11 to 14 June 2008
  • 36 countries, including Australia; Canada; Japan; People’s Republic of China; Korea; Indonesia; India; US and other countries from APEC region and European Community (EC)

General Statements

  • Ms. E. Molnar, Director of the UNECE Transport Division, informed the World Forum about the results of the first International Transport Forum (ITF) on "Transport and Energy
  • ITF had urged the World Forum to accelerate the work to develop common methodologies, test cycles and measurement methods for reducing vehicle emissions, including CO2 emissions

3. Highlight of the Recent Sessions(1)

Highlight of the Recent Sessions

  • GRSG (94th General Safety, 21-25 April 2008)

- Proposal for a reduction from 75 per cent o 70 per cent of the lower limit of the regular

light transmittance of a windscreen, specified in Regulation No. 43, is considered to

vote in the November 2008 session

- With regard to the increased fire risk of heavy-duty vehicles, GRSG will continue to

work on the detection of fires and on provisions for electric wires and fuses on buses,

while GRRF will be focusing on Tyre Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS)

  • Considered a proposal for clarification of the definitions of classes of vehicles due to

request from GRSP to review the scope of Regulations of Nos. 14, 16 and 17,

regarding the fitting of safety belts into buses and coaches.

- decide to discontinue the work of the informal group on Event Data Recorder (EDR)

until new data would be available

- Agreed to initiate the amendment of the Regulation 43(Safety Glazing) in order to

align it with the provisions of newly adopted GTR No.6


3. Highlight of the Recent Sessions(2)

Highlight of the Recent Sessions

  • GRSP(43th Passive Safety, 19-23 May 2008)
  • Japan proposed active participation in the Informal Working Group on Head Restraints GTR

phase 2 as it has been adopted GTR NO.7 in the last plenary meeting

  • Once Pedestrian Safety GTR is established, Phase II Development of flexible legform impactor

technical evaluation group (FLEX-TEG) will be continued under the chairmanship of Japan

  • With regard to the development of HFCV GTR, Phase I development of GTR,storage systems

for compressed gas and for liquid hydrogen, vehicle fuel system integrity and electric safety,

will be conducted through activities from SGS and ELSA

  • Held a informal group meeting to amend Regulation No. 94 (Frontal impact) by changing the

type of deformable barrier element and revising the testing procedures and decided to update it

by 2010 based on technical justification including cost-benefit analysis.


3. Highlight of the Recent Sessions (3)

Highlight of the Recent Sessions

  • GRE(59th Lighting and Light-Signalling, 31 March-4 April 2008)

- Awaiting sponsors for developing new GTR regarding new headlamp beam combinations,

new front fog-lamps, LED headlamps, installation of lighting and light signalling devices on

motorcycles, adaptive front-lighting systems (AFS) etc

- Automatic activation of headlamp at engine start in motorcycle is submitted to WP29 for

consideration at the November to considered to vote in the November 2008 session

  • GRPE (56th Pollution and Energy 3-6 June 2008)

- Informal group in charge of developing a GTR on Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test

Procedures (WLTP) will preparing a roadmap by 2009 as it is related to prevent global


  • Reported progress of work of Off-cycle emission, heavy-duty emission certification and fuel

quality (WHDC)
