1. SCOPE
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.
