Agenda Item 6. (a)
UN R48: Proposals for amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments

21. The expert from Poland proposed adding a reference to the installation parameters of the licence plate illumination lamps (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2020/2). The expert from OICA commented on the proposal (GRE-83-44). GRE adopted the proposal unamended and requested the secretariat to submit it for consideration and vote at the March 2021 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 14 to the 06 series of amendments and draft Supplement 1 to the 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48.

22. The expert from the Russian Federation tabled a proposal that clarified the height requirements for the installation of the dipped-beam headlamp, reversing lamp and rear fog lamp for vehicles of category G designed for off-road use (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2020/3). GRE adopted the proposal, as amended by GRE-83-52, and requested the secretariat to submit it for consideration and vote at the March 2021 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 19 to the 04 series of amendments, draft Supplement 14 to the 05 series of amendments, draft Supplement 14 to the 06 series of amendments and draft Supplement 1 to the 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48.

23. The expert of GTB tabled a proposal which allowed for projection of driver assistance symbols on the road ahead of the vehicle, as part of the adaptive driving beam (ADB). This proposal was submitted in a package with an amendment to UN Regulation No. 149 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2020/4 and GRE-83-30). The expert from OICA presented supporting material for the proposal (GRE-83-33 and GRE-83-34), while the experts from Japan expressed concerns identified in the course of their own study (GRE-83-49). Other experts also expressed various views and concerns, such as the need for possible restrictions and standardization of the projected symbols, and that distraction must be avoided. Based on the comments received and pending further studies on the issue, GRE requested GTB to submit a revised document to the next session and invited all interested parties to contribute. Meanwhile, GRE asked the expert from Finland to liaise with the Working Party on General Safety Provisions (GRSG) which had established a Task Force on Field of Vision Assistant.

24. The experts from France and Germany introduced a revised proposal for amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 48 and 148 that regulates the use of manufacturer logos inside the illuminant surface of a lamp (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2020/5 and GRE-83-50). The experts from the Russian Federation and OICA commented on the proposal (GRE-83-36 and GRE-83-46). Taking into account concerns expressed by the experts from EC and the Russian Federation, GRE invited the authors to liaise with those experts and to prepare an updated text for the next session. In the interim, GRE reiterated its request to type approval authorities to refrain from granting type approvals to lamps with such logos.

25. The expert from IWG SLR proposed several corrections (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2020/24 and GRE-83-06). GRE adopted these proposals and requested the secretariat to submit them for consideration and vote at the March 2021 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 14 to the 06 series of amendments and draft Supplement 1 to the 07 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48.

26. The expert of IWG SLR introduced draft amendments to references in UN Regulation No. 48, anticipating the future 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 149 (GRE-83-22 and GRE-83-23).

27. GRE took note of GRE-83-29 and GRE-83-42 and requested their submission as official documents to the next session. GRE also took note that an updated proposal for the sun load impact would be submitted to the next session (GRE-83-40).
