Agenda Item 4. Simplification of lighting and light-signalling Regulations
Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling | Session 74 | 20-23 Oct 2015

9. On behalf of IWG SLR, the expert from IEC introduced a draft Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/28 and GRE-74-06), proposals for simplifying Regulations Nos. 37, 99 and 128 by moving data sheets for various light sources from these Regulations to the Resolution as well as some further modifications (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/25, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/ 2015/26, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/27, GRE-74-03, GRE-74-04, GRE-74-05, GRE-74-17, GRE-74-18 and GRE-74-24). The experts from Germany, France, Italy, Netherlands and EC delivered a number of remarks on these proposals, mainly of a terminology nature. The expert from France also requested that all modifications to Regulations Nos. 37, 99 and 128 be clearly explained in the “Justification” section of the respective documents.

10. GRE stressed the need to ensure the high quality of these documents before submitting them to WP.29 and requested IWG SLR to update the proposals based on the comments received and to submit a revised package for consideration at the next session. Some experts pointed out that the guidance by OLA on establishing a new HRD Resolution (see para. 7 above) was also applicable to the draft Resolution on light sources. GRE recalled that this approach had already been endorsed by WP.29 at its November 2014 session. Nevertheless, GRE requested its Chair to ask WP.29, at its forthcoming session in November 2015, to reconfirm this mandate in the light of the OLA guidance.
