The agenda of a meeting of one of its subsidiary bodies can be viewed and downloaded here: www.unece.org/trans/main/welcwp29.htm (by selecting the relevant working group in the left column). Mutual recognition of the authorizations issued under the 1958 agreement is intended to facilitate international trade in vehicles and their components. When an item is approved by one of the parties to the 1958 agreement pursuant to a United Nations regulation, all other contracting parties that have signed the same regulation recognize that approval. This avoids repeated testing and approval of components in different countries to which they are exported. This helps reduce design, manufacturing and registration costs and delays, as well as the commissioning of vehicles and their components. (more: www.unece.org/trans/main/wp29/wp29wgs/wp29gen/wp29pub.html) The title of the 1997 agreement is: “Agreement on the adoption of uniform conditions for periodic technical inspections of wheeled vehicles and mutual recognition of these inspections” concluded in Vienna on 13 November 1997.In March 2013, there were twelve parties to the 1997 agreement and 17 signatories until their ratification. On 4 December 2001, the United Nations Rule 1 on uniform requirements for periodic technical inspections of wheeled vehicles to protect the environment came into force. Also on 3 February 2012, UN Article 2 on the adoption of uniform conditions for periodic technical inspections of wheeled vehicles and mutual recognition of these inspections came into force. The text of the agreement as well as the UN rules No.

(see: www.unece.org/trans/main/main/wp29wgs/wp29gen/wp29gen/wp29gen/wp291997.html) The status of the 1997 Agreement is generally stated in an informal document of the last meetings of WP.29 and AC.4. This document can be found on the WP.29 website at: www.unece.org/trans/main/wp29/wp29wgs/wp29gen/geninf135.html A contracting party to the 1998 agreement may accept any UN AUTHORITY that interests him. A party that votes in favour of the creation of a United Nations GTR is required to submit the technical regulation by its government to the procedure for adopting such a technical regulation in its own legislation. However, it is free not to adopt this UN decision and to justify the decision under this procedure. For more information, see Article 7 of the 1998 Agreement: www.unece.org/trans/main/wp29/wp29wgs/wp29gen/wp29glob.htmlA contracting party may also decide to accept products corresponding to a UN CSR, without including as much in their own laws or regulations.
