2. Also in SP363, sub-paragraphs (i) to (v) are renumbered as (a) to (e).

4 ISO 4009, referred to in this standard, need not be applied.
4. Paragraph 184.108.40.206 is amended to read:
Training certificates for drivers conforming to the model applicable until 31 December 2010 issued by Contracting Parties until 31 December 2012, instead of those conforming to the requirements of 220.127.116.11.5, may continue in use to the end of their five year validity. HJK
