1. The applicable AD vehicle levels in this guideline should be clarified. We propose to set the applicable scope to AD Level 3 to Level 5, rather than AD Level 1 to Level 5.
2. The responsible drafting institute should closely coordinate with other TCs, e.g. TC114, to harmonize the drafting content as well as to avoid the obstacle or overlapping work caused by standards itself.
3. International OEMs should be encouraged and allowed to participate in / contribute to the development of the standards (65 standards in total as planned in this guideline
4. Future standards should base on the Chinese legal framework, for example Road Traffic Law. The applicability of law should be evaluated in each standard in the guideline to avoid conflict or lead to revision of the current law in order to open the market for future ICV.
5. Implication of whether / how to implement the planned standards should be specified, e.g. in the standard explanatory notes.
