3.2. Auditors must have received specific training in evaluation activities. In addition, they must have specific knowledge of the technical field in which the technical service will carry out its activities. 4. The adopted UN Regulations shall enter into force on the date on which they are established as UN Regulations annexed to this Agreement for all Parties which have not notified their refusal or intention not to apply them by that date. Decision 2000/125/EC – Conclusion of the Agreement establishing comprehensive technical requirements for wheeled vehicles, equipment and parts which may be fitted and/or used in wheeled vehicles (hereinafter referred to as the `Parallel Convention`) The United States, which has its own federal standards for motor vehicle safety and does not recognise United Nations type-approvals, is the most notable non-signatory to the 1958 Agreement. However, both the United States and Canada are parties to the 1998 agreement. Vehicles and components with UN specifications that do not also comply with US regulations cannot therefore be imported into the United States without major modifications. Canada has its own Canadian automotive safety standards, which largely resemble the US FMVSS, but Canada also accepts UN-compliant headlights and bumpers. The upcoming Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement between Canada and the European Union could result in Canada recognizing more UN rules than acceptable alternatives to Canadian rules.  Canada currently applies 14 of the 17 core standards of the JIT as permitted alternatives, namely motorcycle controls and displays, motorcycle mirrors and electronic passenger car stability control.
[Citation required] These three remaining groups will be admitted until the ratification of the trade agreement in Canada. [Citation required] 1. Any dispute between two or more Parties concerning the interpretation or application of this Agreement shall be settled, to the extent possible, by negotiations between them. The core of the work of the Forum is based on the “1958 Convention”, entitled “Convention on the Adoption of Uniform Technical Prescriptions for Wheeled Vehicles, Equipment and Parts which may be fitted and/or used in wheeled vehicles and on the conditions for mutual recognition of approvals granted on the basis of such prescriptions” (E/ECE/TRANS/505/Rev.2, as amended on 16 October 1995). This provides a legal framework within which the participating countries (parties) agree on common rules and technical protocols for the type-approval of vehicles and components. . . .
