Working Party on General Safety Provisions - Introduction

The Working Party on General Safety Provisions (GRSG) is the subsidiary body of the World Forum for Harmonization of Vehicle Regulations (WP.29) that prepares regulatory proposals on general safety to WP.29.  This group of experts conducts research and analysis to develop general safety requirements for vehicles, in particular buses and coaches.

GRSG convenes officially twice a year and entrusts informal groups with specific subjects that need to be considered urgently or that require special expertise.  More than 100 experts participate at the sessions of GRSG.

The Working Party is open to the governmental experts from any member country of the United Nations, and to any regional economic integration organization set up by member countries of the United Nations, and to experts of governmental organizations. Experts of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) may participate in a consultative capacity.  Final decisions are taken by Government representatives by vote at the World Forum WP.29 level.

The work of GRSG experts is transparent: All agendas, working documents and reports are openly accessible on this website.
