36. The expert from IMMA presented a revised proposal to introduce the possibility of interdependent lamps for dedicated motorcycle lamps into Regulation No. 50 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/15, GRE-72-16). GRE adopted the proposal, as amended by Annex XI to this report, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 17 to the original version of Regulation No. 50.

37. The expert from IMMA introduced a revised proposal allowing for the possibility of installing interdependent lamps for L3 category vehicles in Regulation No. 53 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/16). GRE adopted this proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 15 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 53.

38. The expert from GTB introduced a proposal to clarify the testing procedures in Regulation No. 3 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/17). GRE adopted this proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 16 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 3.

39. The expert from GTB proposed to amend the requirements for marking, colour management and ultraviolet testing of light emitting diodes (LED) in Regulation No. 19 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/18). GRE adopted this proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 7 to the 04 series of amendments to Regulation No. 19, subject to the following amendment: Annex 5, paragraph 1.2.1.2., new subparagraph (f), amend to read: “(f) 2±1 parts by weight of surface-actant5”.

40. The expert from GTB proposed to amend photometric stability requirements in Regulations Nos. 23 and 119 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/19, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/ GRE/2014/27). GRE adopted these proposals and requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 20 to the original series of amendments to Regulation No. 23 and draft Supplement 4 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 119, respectively.

41. The expert from GTB proposed to amend the requirements for the mixture in the dirt test in Regulations Nos. 45, 98, 112, 113 and 123 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/21, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/23, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/25, ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/GRE/2014/26, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/28). For Regulations Nos. 112, 113 and 123, the proposal also aimed to simplify measuring the objective luminous flux of LED modules (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/26, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/28).

42. GRE noted that, in principle, the provisions amended by GTB are very similar and should become part of a horizontal reference document in the future. Nevertheless, GRE was of the view that the amendment process should not be blocked, pending the outcome of activities of IWG SLR. Thus, GRE adopted the above proposals and requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as, respectively, draft Supplement 9 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 45, draft Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 98, draft Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112, draft Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 113 and draft Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 123, subject to the following amendments:

ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/21
Annex 4, paragraph 2.1.1., last line, replace “mS/m” with “µS/m”.
Annex 4, paragraph 2.1.1., subparagraph (e), amend to read:
“(e) 13 parts by weight of distilled water with a conductivity of ≤ 1 µS/m, and 2 ±1 parts by weight of surface-actant2.”

ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/23, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/25 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/26
Annex 4, paragraphs 1.2.1.1.1. and 1.2.1.1.2., replace “mS/m” with “µS/m”.

ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/28
Annex 4, paragraphs 1.2.1.1. and 1.2.1.2., replace “mS/m” with “µS/m”.

43. The expert from France proposed to delete a design restrictive requirement of a minimum luminous flux of 1,000 lm for LED in Regulations Nos. 112 and 123 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/35, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/36, GRE-72-25). The expert from Poland proposed an alternative definition of photometric requirements (GRE-72-24). GRE supported the deletion of the 1,000 lm requirement, but could not agree with the requirement for light distribution of the beam pattern proposed as an alternative. GRE invited the expert from France, in cooperation with the expert from Poland, to prepare a revised proposal for consideration at the next session. All GRE experts were invited to contribute.

44. The expert from Belgium introduced a proposal to amend Regulation No. 10 with prescriptions for electromagnetic compatibility of trolleybuses (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/41). GRE noted that this amendment had been originally prepared for Regulation No. 107 (General construction of buses and coach), but the Working Party on General Safety Provisions (GRSG) felt that the prescriptions for electromagnetic compatibility of trolleybuses belong to Regulation No. 10 which is under the auspices of GRE. The experts from the Russian Federation and OICA pointed out that the proposed prescriptions for electromagnetic compatibility of trolleybuses do not fit Regulation No. 10, as they are substantially different from the current provisions in this Regulation and would require different testing methods and equipment that are not easily available. GRE agreed to solicit the expert opinions on this issue and to revert to it at its next session. Meanwhile, GRE invited its Chair to bilaterally discuss the issue with the GRSG Chair and, if necessary, to raise it at the November 2014 session of AC.2.

45. GRE recalled a number of documents referred back by WP.29 and agreed with the content of four revised documents re-submitted by the secretariat to the November 2014 session of WP.29 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/75/Rev.1, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/ 90/Rev.1, ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/2013/92/Rev.1, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/93/Rev.1).

46. The expert from GTB proposed to correct an error introduced by Supplement 16 to the original series of Regulation No. 38 (GRE-72-09). GRE adopted this proposal, as contained in Annex XII to the report, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as a draft Supplement to Regulation No. 38.

47. The expert from Poland proposed to introduce a new “side illuminating lamp” into Regulations Nos. 119 and 48 (GRE-72-21, GRE-72-21-Add.1). GRE delivered a number of preliminary remarks and invited the expert from Poland to submit a revised proposal as an official document for consideration at the next session.

48. The Chair invited GRE experts to take part in the third International Forum on Automotive Lighting (IFAL 2015, China) (GRE-72-26 and Add.1).
