Priorities on Motorcycle World-wide Standards: FEMA's points included

Riders' views on priorities for global standards have been recognised
the Working Party 29 (WP.29) dealing with the drafting of world-wide
technical regulations within the United Nations' Economic Committee for
Europe (UNECE). This appeared when the WP.29 considered and adopted its
next issues of priority at their meeting in Geneva earlier this month
during their session of 12-14th March 2002.

FEMA attends meetings in the Helvetian city to represent riders on
behalf of the International Co-operation formed with its sister
organisations, AMA (American Motorcyclist Association), FIM (Fidiration
Internationale de Motocyclisme) and MRF (Motorcycle Riders Foundation).
FEMA had previously submitted a document on the subject, expressing the
riders' points of view on what should be these priorities. Officially
called "Informal document", it was considered by the WP.29, and the
points expressed are now included in the final list of priorities for
this Working Party.

Two motorcycle issues have been incorporated in the list and,
importantly, these are only looking into test procedures and not limit
or performance values. There are braking performance and the
of the World Motorcycle Test Cycle (Globally harmonised test cycle to
measure motorcycle exhaust emissions).

FEMA strongly believes that Global technical regulations should only be
given priority in Geneva when they deal with test cycle or performance
measurements, and should only consider limit values when national
standards are the same or very similar. This in order to avoid
significant changes in the countries signatories to the UN
Particularly if these changes would result in highest and strictest
standards with no consideration given to their benefit for the user
compared to the costs involved in their implementation.

Very interestingly, the WP.29 also decided to include in their list of
priorities a Global technical regulation intended to make car fronts
safer for pedestrians. In Europe, this subject is currently being
considered through a commitment from the car industry, whilst the
European Parliament is considering whether this issue would be better
dealt with through a directive.

Bob Tomlins, FEMA Acting General Secretary, present at this UNECE
Session, said: "Whilst we are often frustrated by the arcane procedures
that apply in Geneva, I am very pleased with this outcome. It does seem
that the users/consumers' point of view has been listened to. Let us
hope that the views and the needs of riders will continue to be
