Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling | Session 72 | 20-22 Oct 2014

9. Taking into account the recent GTB study (GRE-71-32), the expert from France proposed to delete a design restrictive requirement for an automatic levelling device for all headlamps with LED light sources, irrespective of their luminous flux (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/34). GRE agreed that this proposal should be tackled at the next session, in conjunction with the GTB proposals on visibility and glare issues (see para. 14 below).

13. The expert from the Netherlands, in his capacity of Chair of the Task Force on Tell-Tales (TF TT), reported on the progress made by the Task Force. The expert from OICA, Secretary of TF TT, proposed amendments to Regulations Nos. 7, 87 and 48 on tell-tales indicating a failure (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/31, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/ 2015/32, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/33 GRE-74-16). He pointed out that the proposed amendments would also require an amendment to Regulation No. 121 and, to this end, a separate proposal would be submitted to the Working Party on General Safety Provisions (GRSG). GRE requested TF TT to specify the legal form of the proposed amendments and to submit revised proposals for consideration at the next session.

17. The expert from Germany presented a proposal on fitting end-outline marker lamps when a device for indirect vision is installed (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/34 and GRE-74-22-Rev.1). GRE adopted this proposal, as contained in Annex II, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1) for consideration and vote at their March 2016 sessions as draft Supplement 9 to the 05 series of amendments to and draft Supplement 7 to the 06 series of amendments Regulation No. 48.

21. GRE noted that this issue was discussed together with document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/31 (para. 13 above).
