MUTUAL RESOLUTION No. 1 (M.R.1) OF
THE 1958 AND THE 1998 AGREEMENTS
CONCERNING THE DESCRIPTION AND PERFORMANCE OF TEST TOOLS
AND DEVICES NECESSARY FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF COMPLIANCE OF
WHEELED VEHICLES, EQUIPMENT AND PARTS ACCORDING TO THE TECHNICAL
PRESCRIPTIONS SPECIFIED IN REGULATIONS AND GLOBAL TECHNICAL REGULATIONS
Amendment 1 Dated: January 9, 2015
The text reproduced below was adopted on November 14, 2012 by the World Forum for Harmonization
of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29), regarding the Agreement Concerning the Adoption of Uniform Technical
Prescriptions for Wheeled Vehicles, Equipment and Parts which can be fitted and/or be used on
Wheeled Vehicles and the Conditions for Reciprocal Recognition of Approvals Granted on the Basis of
these Prescriptions (1958 Agreement) and on November 15, 2012 by the Executive Committee AC.3 of
the Agreement Concerning the Establishing of Global Technical Regulations for Wheeled Vehicles,
Equipment and Parts which can be fitted and/or be used on Wheeled Vehicles (1998 Agreement)
(ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1099, Paras. 76 and 117). It is based on document TRANS/WP.29/2012/124, as
amended by Annex III to the report.
1. The Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1) and the Executive Committee of the
1998 Agreement (AC.3),
2. DESIRING to harmonise technical requirements while ensuring high levels of safety,
environmental protection, energy efficiency and anti-theft performance of wheeled vehicles,
equipment and parts which can be fitted and/or be used on wheeled vehicles,
3. BEARING IN MIND that the 1958 Agreement established on March 20, 1958 provides for the
adoption of uniform technical prescriptions for wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts which can
be fitted and/or be used on wheeled vehicles and the conditions for reciprocal recognition by
Contracting Parties of approvals granted on the basis of these prescriptions,
4. BEARING IN MIND that the 1998 Agreement provides for the establishment of global technical
regulations for wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts which can be fitted and/or be used on
wheeled vehicles was opened for signature in Geneva on June 25, 1998,
5. BEARING IN MIND that both Agreements facilitate the trade of wheeled vehicles, equipment and
parts with harmonized performance requirements among the respective Contracting Parties,
6. BEARING IN MIND that the assessment of compliance with the technical prescriptions of
Regulations annexed to the 1958 Agreement and global technical regulations in the framework of
the 1998 Agreement requires the use of test tools and equipment,
7. BEARING IN MIND that the assessment of compliance may take place in any of the territories of
the Contracting Parties and at a variety of laboratories within those territories,
8. BEARING IN MIND that to facilitate the application of the Agreements, AC.1 and AC.3 have
decided that the test tools and devices necessary for compliance assessment should be
comprehensively defined in terms of their essential characteristics and performance in a Mutual
9. BEARING IN MIND that this Resolution does not hold regulatory status within Contracting Parties.
10. RECOMMENDS that Contracting Parties and manufacturers refer to this Mutual Resolution when
establishing the suitability of their test tools and devices when used for the assessment of
compliance with the prescriptions of Regulations or global technical regulations in the framework
of the 1958 or 1998 Agreements respectively.
MUTUAL RESOLUTION (M.R.1) OF THE 1958 AND 1998 AGREEMENTS CONCERNING
THE DESCRIPTION AND PERFORMANCE OF TEST TOOLS AND DEVICES NECESSARY
FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF COMPLIANCE OF WHEELED VEHICLES, EQUIPMENT AND
PARTS ACCORDING TO THE TECHNICAL PRESCRIPTIONS SPECIFIED IN
REGULATIONS AND GLOBAL TECHNICAL REGULATIONS
1.1. This Mutual Resolution details specific test devices and equipment that are referenced
in individual Regulations annexed to the "1958 Agreement" and/or global technical
regulations established under the "1998 Agreement", as necessary, for the
determination of regulatory compliance of "wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts
which can be fitted and/or used on wheeled vehicles".
2. GENERAL PROVISIONS
2.1. This Mutual Resolution contains those details associated with any test tool or device
that are necessary to establish that the test tool or device is appropriate for use in
determining the compliance of a wheeled vehicle, equipment or part with a Regulation
or global technical regulation. These details are those associated with the essential
design of the test tool or device, its assembly, calibration and general preparation for
use for that purpose.
2.2. The technical prescriptions for each test tool or device can be found in a discrete
addendum to this Mutual Resolution.
2.3. The regulatory prescriptions for the use of the tool can be found in the individual
Regulation or global technical regulation for which the test tool or device is specified.
2.4. Engineering Drawings
2.4.1. While manufacturer part numbers and drawing numbers exist for individual components
of the test tool, the protocol for this Mutual Resolution is to ascribe a unique
UN drawing number to each drawing of a set. The number follows the convention
"TRANS/WP.29/1101" followed by a reference to the specific Addendum for the
particular tool and a drawing number, e.g. "TRANS/WP.29/1101/Add.1/Dwg 001".
2.4.2. The Drawing Index is included as a Table in each Addendum and an example is shown
as "Appendix 1: Table 1 – Drawing Index" in the Appendix to this Mutual Resolution.
2.5. In the event that a test tool shares parts with another tool registered within this Mutual
Resolution, the drawings are not duplicated but reference is made to a master drawing
in a "parent" Addendum.
2.6. With the exception of Paragraph 2.5, where the manufacturer makes changes to a part
that is shared with one or more tools, and it is not demonstrated that all these tools are
unaffected, a new drawing is listed for the tool affected by the change. Where this
change affects a master drawing, the original drawing is reallocated to a new and
alternative parent Addendum and references revised. Revised drawings follow the
numbering convention, i.e. "TRANS/WP.29/1101/Add.1/Dwg 001/Rev.1".
2.7. A Table of Drawing Revisions is provided in each Addendum and an example is shown
as "Annex 1, Table – Drawing Revisions" in the Appendix to this Mutual Resolution.
Addendum 1 – [Reserved for Bio Rear Impact Dummy (BioRID) specifications]
Specifications for the Construction, Preparation and Certification of the
World Side Impact 50th Percentile Adult Male Anthropomorphic Test
Device (WorldSID 50 male)
1. General provisions.
Specifications for the Construction, Preparation and Certification of the World Side Impact 50th
Percentile Adult Male Anthropomorphic Test Device (WorldSID 50th male)
1. GENERAL PROVISIONS
1.1. This Addendum provides the specifications for the WorldSID 50th percentile adult male
anthropomorphic test device (WorldSID 50th male) to be used for testing of road vehicles for side
impact occupant protection. Detailed specifications for the design, certification and
assembly/disassembly of the WorldSID 50th male have been published by the International
Organization for Standardization (ISO) under the reference ISO 15830:2013. It is the intention for
the relevant specifications to be incorporated within this Addendum at the earliest opportunity.
1.2. WP.29 introduced a global technical regulation on Pole Side Impact under the 1998 Agreement
and more recently a Regulation concerning the approval of vehicles with regard to their Pole Side
Impact performance under the 1958 Agreement. In order to ensure consistency in the application
of the test requirement within these regulations, it is imperative to include within the reference
materials available to regulators, Type Approval Authorities and Technical Services, accurate
information on the test devices.
1.3. Until such time as the relevant specifications are incorporated within this Addendum, the WorldSID
50 male to be used for regulatory testing in accordance with the above mentioned Regulations
shall be assembled and certified in accordance with the requirements of ISO 15830:2013 for the
dummy fitted with two half arms.
1.4. Details of the H-point locator assembly (H-point tool) to be used in conjunction with the WorldSID
50th male, including dimensions, are specified in ISO 15830-2:2013, drawing number
