HAVE AGREED AS FOLLOWS:
ARTICLE 1
1. The Contracting Parties shall establish, through an Administrative Committee made up of all
Contracting Parties in conformity with the rules of procedure set out in the Appendix to this
Agreement and on the basis of the following articles, paragraphs, UN Regulations for wheeled
vehicles, equipment and parts which can be fitted and/or be used on wheeled vehicles. Conditions
for granting type approvals and their reciprocal recognition will be included for use by Contracting
Parties which choose to implement Regulations through type approval.
For the purposes of this Agreement,
The term "wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts" shall include any wheeled vehicles, equipment
and parts whose characteristics have a bearing on vehicle safety, protection of the environment,
energy saving and the performance of anti-theft technology.
The term "type approval pursuant to a UN Regulation" indicates an administrative procedure by
which the approval authorities of one Contracting Party declare, after carrying out the required
verifications that a type of vehicle, equipment or part submitted by the manufacturer conforms to
the requirements of the given UN Regulation. Afterwards the manufacturer certifies that each
vehicle, equipment or parts put on the market were produced to be identical with the approved
product.
The term "whole vehicle type approval" indicates that type approvals granted pursuant to
applicable UN Regulations for wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts of a vehicle are integrated
into an approval of the whole vehicle according to the provisions of the administrative IWVTA
system.
The term "version of a UN Regulation" indicates that a UN Regulation, following its adoption and
establishment, may subsequently be amended following the procedures described in this
Agreement, in particular Article 12. The unamended UN Regulation as well as the UN Regulation,
after integration of subsequent amendment(s), are considered to be separate versions of that
UN Regulation.
The term "applying a UN Regulation" indicates that a UN Regulation enters into force for a
Contracting Party. When doing so, Contracting Parties have the possibility to keep their own
national/regional legislation. If they wish, they may substitute their national/regional legislation by
the requirements of the UN Regulations they are applying, but they are not bound by the
Agreement to do so. However, Contracting Parties shall accept, as an alternative to the relevant
part of their national/regional legislation, UN type approvals granted pursuant to the latest version
of UN Regulations applied in their country/region. The rights and obligations of Contracting Parties
applying a UN Regulation are detailed in the various articles of this Agreement.
For the application of the UN Regulations there could be various administrative procedures
alternative to type approval. The only alternative procedure generally known and applied in certain
member States of the Economic Commission for Europe is the self-certification by which the
manufacturer certifies, without any preliminary administrative control, that each product put on the
market conforms to the given UN Regulation; the competent administrative authorities may verify
by random sampling on the market that the self-certified products comply with the requirements of
the given UN Regulation.

4. The adopted UN Regulation shall enter into force on the date(s) specified therein as a
UN Regulation annexed to this Agreement for all Contracting Parties which have not notified either
their disagreement, or their intention not to apply it on that date.
5. When depositing its instrument of accession, any new Contracting Party may declare that it will not
apply certain UN Regulations then annexed to this Agreement or that it will not apply any of them.
If, at that time, the procedure laid down in Paragraphs 2, 3, and 4 of this Article is in progress for a
draft or adopted UN Regulation, the Secretary-General shall communicate such draft or adopted
UN Regulation to the new Contracting Party and it shall enter into force as a UN Regulation for the
new Contracting Party unless this Contracting Party notifies its disagreement with the adopted
UN Regulation within a period of six months after the deposit of its instrument of accession. The
Secretary-General shall notify all the Contracting Parties of the date of such entry into force. The
Secretary-General shall also communicate to them all declarations concerning the non-application
of certain UN Regulations that any Contracting Party may make in accordance with the terms of
this paragraph.
6. Any Contracting Party applying a UN Regulation may at any time notify the Secretary-General,
subject to one year's notice, about its intention to cease applying that UN Regulation. Such
notification shall be communicated by the Secretary-General to the other Contracting Parties.
Approvals previously granted pursuant to that UN Regulation by that Contracting Party shall
remain valid unless they are withdrawn in accordance with the provisions of Article 4.
If a Contracting Party ceases to issue approvals to a UN Regulation it shall:
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
Maintain proper supervision on conformity of production of products for which it previously
granted type approval;
Take the necessary steps set out in Article 4 when advised of non-conformity by a
Contracting Party that continues to apply the UN Regulation;
Continue to notify the other Contracting Parties of withdrawal of approvals as set out in
Article 5;
Continue to grant extensions to existing approvals.
7. Any Contracting Party not applying a UN Regulation may at any time notify the Secretary-General
that it intends henceforth to apply it and the UN Regulation will then enter into force for this Party
on the sixtieth day after this notification. The Secretary-General shall notify all the Contracting
Parties of every entry into force of a UN Regulation for a new Contracting Party affected in
accordance with the terms of this paragraph.
8. The Contracting Parties for which a UN Regulation is in force shall hereinafter be referred to as
"the Contracting Parties applying a UN Regulation".

ARTICLE 4
1. Should a Contracting Party applying a UN Regulation find that certain wheeled vehicles,
equipment or parts bearing approval markings issued under the said UN Regulation by one of the
Contracting Parties, do not conform to the approved types or the requirements of the said
UN Regulation, they shall advise the approval authority of the Contracting Party which issued the
approval.
The Contracting Party that issued the approval shall take the necessary steps to ensure that the
non-conformity is rectified.
2. When the non-conformity is due to non-compliance with the technical requirements specified in a
UN Regulation, as referred to in Article 1.2.(b), the Contracting Party that issued the approval shall
immediately inform all other Contracting Parties about the situation and shall provide regular
advice to Contracting Parties of the steps it is taking, which may include, if necessary, the
withdrawal of the approval.
After having considered the potential impact on vehicle safety, protection of the environment,
energy saving or the performance of anti-theft technology, Contracting Parties may prohibit the
sale and use of such wheeled vehicles, equipment or parts in their territory until this
non-conformity is rectified. In such a case, these Contracting Parties shall inform the secretariat of
the Administrative Committee of the measures taken. For resolution of disputes between the
Contracting Parties, the procedure provided in Article 10.4 shall apply.
3. Notwithstanding the provisions of Paragraph 1 of this Article, if a non-conforming product, as
referred to in Paragraph 2 of this Article, has not been brought into conformity within a period of
three months, the Contracting Party responsible for the approval shall temporarily or permanently
withdraw the approval. By exception, this period may be extended by a period not exceeding
three months unless one or more Contracting Parties applying the concerned UN Regulation
object. When the period is being extended, the Contracting Party that issued the approval shall,
within the initial three-month period, notify all Contracting Parties applying the concerned
UN Regulation of their intention to extend the period in which the non-conformity shall be rectified
and provide a justification for such extension.
4. When the non-conformity is due to non-compliance with the administrative provisions, approval
markings, conditions for conformity of production or the information document specified in a
UN Regulation, as referred to in Article 1.2.(d) and 1.2.(f), the Contracting Party that issued the
approval shall temporarily or permanently withdraw the approval if the non-conformity has not
been rectified within a period of six months.
5. Paragraphs 1 to 4 of this Article also apply in the situation where the Contracting Party responsible
for issuing of the approval itself finds that certain wheeled vehicles, equipment or parts bearing
approval markings do not conform to the approved types or the requirements of a UN Regulation.
ARTICLE 5
1. The approval authorities of each Contracting Party applying UN Regulations shall send upon the
request from the other Contracting Parties, a list of the wheeled vehicles, equipment or parts, of
which it has refused to grant or has withdrawn approvals.

ARTICLE 8
1. Any Contracting Party may denounce this Agreement by notifying the Secretary-General.
2. Denunciation shall take effect twelve months after the date of receipt by the Secretary-General of
such notification.
3. Any type approvals granted by the Contracting Party shall remain valid for a period of
twelve months after the denunciation has taken effect in accordance with Article 8.2.
ARTICLE 9
1. Any Contracting Party as defined in Article 6 of this Agreement may, at the time of accession or at
any time thereafter, declare by notification addressed to the Secretary-General that this
Agreement shall extend to all or any of the territories for whose international relations it is
responsible. The Agreement shall extend to the territory or territories named in the notification as
from the sixtieth day after its receipt by the Secretary-General.
2. Any Contracting Party as defined in Article 6 of this Agreement which has made a declaration in
accordance with Paragraph 1 of this Article extending this Agreement to any territory for whose
international relations it is responsible may denounce the Agreement separately in respect of that
territory, in accordance with the provisions of Article 8.
ARTICLE 10
1. Any dispute between two or more Contracting Parties concerning the interpretation or application
of this Agreement shall, so far as possible, be settled by negotiation between them.
2. Any dispute which is not settled by negotiation shall be submitted to arbitration if any one of the
Contracting Parties in dispute so requests and shall be referred accordingly to one or more
arbitrators selected by agreement between the Parties in dispute. If within three months from the
date of the request for arbitration the Parties in dispute are unable to agree on the selection of an
arbitrator or arbitrators, any of those Parties may request the Secretary-General to nominate a
single arbitrator to whom the dispute shall be referred for decision.
3. The decision of the arbitrator or arbitrators appointed in accordance with Paragraph 2 of this
Article shall be binding on the Contracting Parties in dispute.
4. Any dispute between two or more Contracting Parties concerning the interpretation or application
of UN Regulations annexed to this Agreement shall be settled by negotiation in accordance with
the procedure set out in Schedule 6 annexed to this Agreement.
ARTICLE 11
1. Any Contracting Party may, at the time of acceding to this Agreement, declare that it does not
consider itself bound by Paragraphs 1 to 3 of Article 10 of the Agreement. Other Contracting
Parties shall not be bound by Paragraphs 1 to 3 of Article 10 in respect of any Contracting Party
which has entered such a reservation.
2. Any Contracting Party having entered a reservation as provided for in Paragraph 1 of this Article
may at any time withdraw such reservation by notifying the Secretary-General.
3. No other reservation to this Agreement, its Appendix, Schedules and the UN Regulations annexed
thereto shall be permitted; but any Contracting Party may, in accordance with the terms of
Article 1, Paragraph 5,declare that it does not propose to apply certain of the Regulations or that it
does not propose to apply any of them.

The text of the Agreement itself and of its Appendix may be amended in accordance with the following
procedure:
1. Any Contracting Party may propose one or more amendments to this Agreement and its Appendix.
The text of any proposed amendment to the Agreement and its Appendix shall be transmitted to
the Secretary-General, who shall transmit it to all Contracting Parties and inform all other countries
referred to in Paragraph 1 of Article 6 thereof.
2. Any proposed amendment circulated in accordance with Paragraph 1 of this Article shall be
deemed to be accepted if no Contracting Party expresses an objection within a period of nine
months following the date of circulation of the proposed amendment by the Secretary-General.
3. The Secretary-General shall, as soon as possible, notify all Contracting Parties whether an
objection to the proposed amendment has been expressed. If an objection to the proposed
amendment has been expressed, the amendment shall be deemed not to have been accepted,
and shall be of no effect whatsoever. If no such objection has been expressed, the amendment
shall enter into force for all Contracting Parties three months after the expiry of the period of
nine months referred to in Paragraph 2 of this Article.
ARTICLE 13 bis

irrespective of the category of activities which they conduct.
3.4. The UNECE secretariat shall publish the list and contact details of the approval authorities and
technical services on its website.

PART THREE – PROCEDURE FOR THE ASSESSMENT OF TECHNICAL SERVICES
1. PURPOSE
1.1. This part of Schedule 2 establishes the conditions by which the assessment procedure of the
technical services shall be conducted by the competent authority referred to in Paragraph 2 of
Part One of this Schedule.
1.2. These requirements shall apply, mutatis mutandis, to all technical services irrespective of their
legal status (independent organisation, manufacturer or approval authority acting as technical
service).
2. PRINCIPLES OF ASSESSING
Assessment shall be characterised by reliance on a number of principles:
(a)
(b)
Independence which is the basis for the impartiality and objectivity of the conclusions;
An evidence-based approach which guarantees reliable and reproducible conclusions.
Auditors shall show trust and integrity, and shall respect confidentiality and discretion. They shall
report truthfully and accurately findings and conclusions.
3. AUDITOR SKILLS
3.1. The assessments may only be conducted by auditors with the technical and administrative
knowledge necessary for such purposes.
3.2. The auditors shall have been trained specifically for assessment activities. In addition, they shall
have the specific knowledge of the technical area in which the technical service will exercise its
activities.
3.3. Without prejudice to the provisions of Paragraphs 3.1. and 3.2. above, the assessment referred
to in Paragraph 2.5. of Part One of this Schedule shall be conducted by auditors independent of
the activities for which the assessment is conducted.

7. PREPARATION FOR ASSESSMENT
7.1. The competent authority shall formally appoint an assessment team. The former shall ensure
that the expertise brought to each assignment is appropriate. In particular, the team as a whole:
(a)
(b)
Shall have appropriate knowledge of the specific scope for which designation is sought; and
Shall have sufficient understanding to reliably assess the competence of the technical
service which operates within its scope of designation.
7.2. The competent authority shall clearly define the assignment given to the assessment team. The
task of the assessment team is to review the documents collected from the applicant technical
service and to conduct the on-site assessment.
7.3. The competent authority shall agree, together with the technical service and the assigned
assessment team, on the date and timetable for the assessment. However, it remains the
responsibility of the competent authority to pursue a date that is in accordance with the
surveillance and reassessment plan.
7.4. The competent authority shall ensure that the assessment team is provided with the appropriate
criteria documents, previous assessment records, and the relevant documents and records of
the technical service.
8. ON-SITE ASSESSMENT
The assessment team shall conduct the assessment of the technical service on the premises of
the technical service from which one or more key activities are performed and, where relevant,
shall perform eyewitness assessment at other selected locations where the technical service
operates.
9. ANALYSIS OF FINDINGS AND ASSESSMENT REPORT
9.1. The assessment team shall analyse all relevant information and evidence from the document
and record review and the on-site assessment. This analysis shall be sufficient to allow the team
to determine the extent of competence and conformity of the technical service with the
requirements for designation.
9.2. The competent authority's reporting procedures shall ensure that the following requirements are
fulfilled.
9.2.1. A meeting shall take place between the assessment team and the technical service prior to
leaving the site. At this meeting, the assessment team shall provide a written and/or oral report of
its findings obtained from the analysis. The technical service shall have the opportunity to ask
questions about the findings, including non-conformities, if any, and their basis.
9.2.2. A written report on the outcome of the assessment shall be promptly brought to the attention of
the technical service. This assessment report shall contain comments on competence and
conformity, and shall identify non-conformities, if any, that need to be resolved in order to
conform to all of the requirements for designation.
9.2.3. The technical service shall be invited to respond to the assessment report and to describe the
specific actions taken or planned to be taken, within a defined time, to resolve any identified
non-conformities.

11. REASSESSMENT AND SURVEILLANCE
11.1. Reassessment is similar to an initial assessment except that experience gained during previous
assessments shall be taken into account. Surveillance on-site assessments are less extensive
than reassessments.
11.2. The competent authority shall design its plan for reassessment and surveillance of each
designated technical service, so that representative samples of the scope of designation are
assessed on a regular basis.
The interval between on-site assessments, whether reassessment or surveillance, depends on
the proven stability of the technical service.
11.3. When, during surveillance or reassessments, non-conformities are identified, the competent
authority shall define strict time limits for the implementation of corrective actions.
11.4. When the corrective or improvement actions have not been taken within the agreed timeframe,
or are not deemed to be sufficient, the competent authority shall adopt appropriate measures
such as, conducting further assessment, suspending/withdrawing the designation for one or
more of the activities for which the technical service has been designated.
11.5. When the competent authority decides to suspend or withdraw the designation of a technical
service, it shall inform the latter by registered mail, and shall inform the UNECE secretariat
thereof accordingly. In any case, the competent authority shall adopt all the necessary measures
to ensure the continuity of the activities already undertaken by the technical service.
12. RECORDS ON DESIGNATED TECHNICAL SERVICES
12.1. The competent authority shall maintain records on technical services to demonstrate that
requirements for designation, including competence, have been effectively fulfilled.
12.2. The competent authority shall keep the records on technical services secure to ensure
confidentiality.
12.3. Records on technical services shall include at least:
(a)
(b)
(c)
Relevant correspondence;
Assessment records and reports;
Copies of designation certificates.

1.10. When the approval tests have demonstrated that the type complies with the technical
requirements of the UN Regulation, an approval of that type shall be granted, an approval
number shall be assigned according to Schedule 4 annexed to the 1958 Agreement and an
approval mark shall be assigned to each type in accordance with the specific provisions of the
UN Regulation concerned.
1.11. The approval authority shall ensure that the following is included in the approval documentation:
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
(e)
(f)
A record of the worst-case selection and the justification for that selection. This may
include information provided by the manufacturer;
A record of any significant technical interpretation made, different test methods applied, or
new technology introduced;
A test report from the technical service that includes recorded values achieved for
measurements and tests as required by the UN Regulation;
Information documents from the manufacturer, properly specifying the characteristics of
the type to be approved;
A statement of compliance with the conformity of the production requirements of
Schedule 1 annexed to the 1958 Agreement, detailing which of the arrangements referred
to in Paragraph 1.3. of Schedule 1 annexed to the 1958 Agreement have been taken into
account as the basis for the initial assessment as well as the date of the initial assessment
and any surveillance activities;
The type approval certificate.
2. AMENDMENTS TO UN TYPE APPROVALS
2.1. The manufacturer holding a UN type approval for their vehicle, equipment or part shall inform
without delay the Contracting Party that issued the UN type approval of any change in the

The Chairs of the subsidiary Working Parties shall identify the issues arising from diverging
interpretations between Contracting Parties in relation to the application of UN Regulations and
the granting of UN type approvals pursuant to these UN Regulations, with a view to put in place
measures at the earliest opportunity to resolve the different interpretations.
The Chairs of the Working Parties will develop suitable procedures to deal with such
interpretation issues, in order to be able to demonstrate to WP.29 that:
(a)
(b)
(c)
(d)
full consideration is given to the different opinions by the approval authorities of the
Contracting Parties concerned, as well as to the views of other Contracting Parties
applying the UN Regulation;
Decisions are based upon appropriate technical advice, taking full account of the subject
area;
Wherever possible, an unanimous decision is reached; and
Procedures are transparent and auditable.
If necessary to resolve the issue, the Chair may submit a new agenda item on the issue to the
next available session of the subsidiary Working Party, without obtaining prior approval from
WP.29. In these circumstances, the Chair shall report on the progress to WP.29 at the earliest
opportunity.
At the end of the arbitration process, the Chair shall provide a report to WP.29.
3.1. Where the issue can be resolved within the current regulatory framework:
The interpretation of the UN Regulation as agreed in the Working Party shall be implemented
and approval authorities shall issue UN type approvals accordingly.
3.2. Where the issue cannot be resolved within the current regulatory framework:
WP.29 shall be informed accordingly and shall request the relevant subsidiary Working Party to
consider the issue as a priority item at its next session. The agenda of the session shall be
amended accordingly.
The subsidiary Working Party shall consider any proposal on the interpretation issue and shall
submit formal proposals to WP.29 to amend the UN Regulation concerned following the normal
procedures. WP.29 will consider the issue as a priority item at its next session.

7. When the authorisation for granting the exemption approval is adopted, the Executive Secretary
of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe shall, as soon as possible, notify the
Contracting Parties applying the concerned UN Regulation about this adoption.
As from the date of that notification the Contracting Party referred to in Paragraph 3 of this
Schedule may then deliver the exemption approval pursuant to the UN Regulation. The
exemption approval shall be accepted by the Contracting Parties applying the UN Regulation,
with the exception of those who have notified their disagreement, or their intention not to accept
the exemption approval immediately, to the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic
Commission for Europe. The Contracting Parties which have notified their disagreement, or their
intention not to accept the exemption approval immediately, with the authorisation by the
Administrative Committee may at a later date accept the exemption approval by notifying the
Executive Secretary of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe of their decision.
8. The Administrative Committee shall specify any restrictions in the authorisation decision. Time
limits shall not be less than 36 months. Contracting Parties applying the UN Regulation shall
accept the exemption approval at least until the expiration of the time limit, if any, or, when the
UN Regulation in question is subsequently amended as per Paragraphs 9 and 10 of this
Schedule in order to take into account the technology covered by the exemption approval, until
