Simplification of Regulations - Light Sources Regulations Nos. 37, 99, 128 - Request for guidance
Document WP.29-167-19
6 November 2015

Request from the SLR informal group for confirmation whether the proposed establishment of a resolution on common specifications of light source categories is acceptable. The resolution would provide a list of light sources allowed in lamps. The UN Office of Legal Affairs has stated that a resolution may not be used to amend a regulation, raising a possible question of interpretation. The SLR informal group also asks whether the proposed resolution can be provided only in English.

38. The GRE chair informed WP.29 about the ongoing activities of GRE on simplifying lighting and light-signalling Regulations, bearing in mind the guidance provided by WP.29 and the United Nations Office for Legal Affairs (OLA). The representative of IEC presented WP.29-167-19 recalling the approach proposed for the simplification of light sources regulations and the guidance provided by OLA. He invited WP.29 to reconfirm its earlier mandate (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/1112, para. 42) to prepare a repository (resolution) on light sources and asked whether this repository could be in English only. The World Forum reconfirmed the approach for simplification of light source regulations but insisted on the need for the repository to be available in the three official languages English, French and Russian.
