The department may then either:. Alternately, lift each foot off the floor the minimum necessary amount until no additional foot movement is obtained. Anchorages for safety-belts shall be so designed, made and situated as to:. Horizontal line tangent to top of seat back last rigid point of a hardness greater than 50 Shore A.

In this test, a force equal to 20 ecf the mass of the relevant parts of the seat assembly shall be applied horizontally and longitudinally in a forward direction to the seat or the relevant part of the seat assembly corresponding to the physical effect of the mass of the seat in question to the cee anchorages.

Any fitting normally provided and likely to contribute to the vehicle structure may be fitted. Effective upper anchorages conforming to paragraph 5. The support leg test device shall be adjusted in degulation and width to assess the vehicle floor contact surface, as defined in Paragraph 5.

InterRegs: Regulation No. | ECE – United Nations

As from 24 months after the date of entry into force of the 07 series of amendments, Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall grant ECE approvals only if r114 requirements of this Regulation, as amended by the 07 series of amendments, are satisfied.

A dummy whose dimensions and mass are defined in Annex 8 shall be positioned on each seat and restrained by the safety-belt provided in the vehicle. All joints of the 3-D H machine should be checked for free movement without encountering noticeable friction. As from the official date of entry into force of Supplement 5 to the 05 series exe amendments, no Contracting Party applying this Regulation shall refuse to grant ECE approvals under this Regulation as modified by Supplement 5 to the 05 series of amendments.

The determination of the additional applied load or loads and the load distribution shall be made by the manufacturer and agreed by the technical service.

Maintain the 3-D H machine level. The belt anchorages of the front outboard positions shall be suitable for safety-belts incorporating a retractor and pulley, taking into consideration in particular the strength characteristics of the belt anchorages, unless the manufacturer supplies the vehicle equipped with other types of safety-belts which incorporate retractors.


Eegulation the seats in the same row can be regarded as 1r4 bench seat, identical seats, etc. Traction devices to be used in the tests described in paragraph 6. Definitions See Annex 3 5. Seat inertia forces For the installation position where the load is transferred into a vehicle seat assembly, and not directly into the vehicle structure, a test shall be carried out to ensure that the strength of the vehicle seat anchorages to the vehicle structure is sufficient.

During this lifting, the feet are to be free to rotate; and no forward or lateral loads are to be applied.

The test may be carried out either on a completely finished vehicle or on sufficient parts of the vehicle so as to r1 representative of the strength and rigidity of the vehicle structure. However, the manufacturer may request the application of the load to be achieved within 2 seconds.

An approval number shall be assigned to each type approved. In the above case the tests prescribed in paragraphs 6. If the vehicle is designed to accept other devices which do not enable the straps to be directly attached to belt anchorages without intervening sheaves, etc. Is at least 65mm behind the torso line, in case of a regulaton webbing-type routing device or a deployable routing device, or at least mm behind the torso line, in the case of a fixed rigid routing device; and, 5.

The belt anchorages for any one belt may be located either wholly in the vehicle structure or in the seat structure or any other part of the vehicle or dispersed between these locations.

Subject to application of the provisions of paragraph 6.

If the vehicle conforms to a vehicle type approved, under one or more other Regulations annexed to the Agreement, in the country which has granted approval under this Regulation, the symbol prescribed in paragraph 4.

Support leg foot assessment volume. S is the distance in millimetres of the effective upper belt anchorages from a reference plane P parallel to the longitudinal median plane of the vehicle defined as follows: The support leg foot assessment volume is characterised as follows see also Annex 10, Figures 1 and 2 of this Regulation: Description of the adjustment, displacement and locking systems either of r4 seat or of its parts In case of an i-Size seating position, an additional support leg test shall be performed as described in paragraph 6.

The second digit is a capital letter, which designates the location of the seating position in a row, as viewed in the direction of forward motion of the vehicle; the following letters shall be used: If the seating position is well-defined by the shape of the seat, the plane P shall be the median plane of this seat.


Point H’ is a reference point corresponding to H as defined in Paragraph 5. Permanent deformation, including partial rupture or breakage of any anchorage or surrounding area, ee not constitute failure if the required force is sustained for the specified time. A securing device shall be regarded as satisfactory if it produces no effect on an area extending over the whole width of the structure and if the vehicle or the structure is blocked or fixed in front at a distance of not less than mm from the anchorage to be tested and is held or fixed at the rear not less than mm from regulattion anchorage.

The first two digits of the approval number indicate that Regulation No 14 already included the 07 series of amendments when the approval was given. A tether anchorage may be recessed in the seat back, provided that it is not in the strap wrap-around area at the top of the vehicle seat back.

Two spirit levels orient the device in space. This volume represents the length and height adjustment range of an i-Size child restraint system support leg. Test for belt anchorages located wholly within the seat structure or dispersed between the vehicle structure and the seat structure.

If the feet then rest on parts of the floor, which are at different levels, the foot which first comes into contact with regularion front seat shall serve as a reference and the other foot shall be so arranged that the spirit level giving the transverse orientation of the seat of the device indicates the horizontal. If the top tether anchorage is integrated to the vehicle seat, this test shall be performed with the ISOFIX top tether strap.

Rear outboard seats and all centre seats: Be rigidly fixed to the SFAD so that the forces applied to the SFAD will directly induce test forces into the vehicle floor, without reduction of the reactive test forces due to damping within or deformation of the support leg test device itself. If the regluation of two of these three operations satisfy the requirements, the conditions of paragraph 3.

In addition to the requirements defined in 5.

Any fitting normally provided and likely to contribute to the vehicle structure may be fitted. Median longitudinal plane of the CRF. A programmed rupture necessary for the functioning of the load limiter device is however permitted. Production definitively discontinued
