[Proposal returned to GRE for further consideration.]
30. Based on an updated proposal tabled by the expert from Italy (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/55/Rev.1), GRE resumed consideration of the insertion of compliance obligations with installation requirements, at the time of type approval of lighting components, according to the component UN Regulations. While several experts supported the proposal, some others were of the view that the underlying issue might go beyond the competence of GRE and that WP.29 should be asked for guidance. The Chair suggested clarifying and possibly rephrasing the wording “UN Regulations … and their series of amendments in force at the time of application for type approval”. GRE agreed to continue this discussion at the next session and decided that this proposal would become part of a horizontal document collecting common provisions of UN lighting and light-signalling Regulations (see agenda item 6 below).
31. The expert from GTB presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/3 clarifying the definition of “type” with regard to manufacturer, trade names and marks and to introduce editorial improvements to the requirements for markings. This document superseded ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/45 and GRE-70-02 adopted by GRE at its seventieth session. Various experts identified a number of issues which would require further consideration and clarification. GRE agreed to continue this discussion at the next session and suggested that ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/3 become part of a horizontal document collecting common provisions of UN lighting and light-signalling Regulations (see agenda item 6 below).
10. GRE reviewed and unanimously adopted the pending amendment proposals so as to consolidate the existing Regulations before they are frozen and superseded by three new Regulations that are in drafting:
|1||Except for the part which was already adopted by WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/75/Rev.1 and Add.1 (note by the secretariat).|
|2||Except for the part which was already adopted by WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/90/Rev.1 (note by the secretariat).|
|3||Except for the part which was already adopted by WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/92/Rev.1 (note by the secretariat).|
|4||Except for the part which was already adopted by WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/93/Rev.1 (note by the secretariat).|
|5||Except for Section B on Regulation No. 45 which was already submitted to WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/77 (note by the secretariat).|
13. The expert of GTB presented a proposal for amendments to Regulations Nos. 4, 6, 7, 23, 38, 50, 77, 87, 91 and 119 to harmonize the requirement for the marking of wattage for signal lighting functions with the requirement for lighting functions (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/30). GRE adopted the proposals and decided to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2017 sessions as part of the consolidated amendment proposals (see para. 10 above). During the adoption, the expert from the UK questioned the urgency of the proposal.
