Agenda Item 4. (e)
Simplification of UN Regulations Nos. 48, 53, 74 and 86

14. The expert from IWG SLR tabled a revised proposal for a new series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48 that introduces new requirements for headlamp levelling and allows manual levelling only for off-road vehicles (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2020/8/Rev.2). The expert from Poland suggested amendments for the initial downward inclination (GRE-84-37). The experts from France and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland made further comments.

15. GRE noted diverging positions on the proposed aiming diagram and manual levelling for off-road vehicles. GRE remained optimistic that a consensus could be reached and requested IWG SLR to convene 1-2 additional separate meetings with the aim to reconcile the different positions and to prepare a revised proposal for the next session.

16. The experts of IWG presented draft proposals for Supplements to different series of amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 48, 53, 74 and 86 (GRE-84-05, GRE-84-06, GRE-84-07, GRE-84-08, GRE-84-09, GRE-84-10). Following a brief exchange of views, GRE invited all experts to provide comments to IWG SLR and requested IWG SLR to finalize the proposals as working documents for the next GRE session.
