This agenda item relates to UN R48 Installation of Lighting.
Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling | Session 71 | 31 Mar-3 Apr 2014

10. The expert from GTB introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/6 to clarify the definitions and requirements associated with the installation of “single lamps”, “lamps marked D” and “interdependent lamps”. GRE adopted this proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2014 sessions as draft supplements to the 04, 05 and 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48.

19. The expert from France introduced GRE-71-18 proposing two amendments to series 04 and 05 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48:

(a) The first amendment introduced interdependent lamp systems in para. 5.18.4. (b) and was based on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/21 adopted during March 2014 session as a new supplement for 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48.

(b) The second amendment suggested that the speed limit in paragraph 6.22.7.4.3 was reduced from 70 to 60 km/h and the requirements of paragraph 6.22.7.4.3(a) was amended to indicate a clear alternative to either detect the motorway conditions with sensors or only activate the E mode above a speed of 110 km/h. The objective of this amendment proposal was to improve the performance of the system by avoiding unnecessary on-off activation of the motorway light.

20. GRE adopted proposal (a) above and requested the secretariat to transmit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2014 sessions as draft supplement to the 04 and 05 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48. GRE decided to come back to proposal (b) at its next session.

62. The expert from CLEPA also proposed ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/13 introducing a new class F of retro-reflecting materials into UN Regulation No. 48, to be applied to special utility vehicles or trailers not regularly covered by standard contour marking materials. GRE adopted this proposal, as amended by Annex III to this report and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2014 sessions as a new Supplement for the 04, 05 and 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48.
