Contracting Parties applying forward lighting regulations
Document SLR-07-06/Annex1
2 January 2016

A mock-up for the proposed regulation consolidating the current forward lighting device regulations, illustrating how the application of the device subparts would be shown in the “Status of the 1958 Agreement” registry of applications, approval authorities, and technical services. The approach would be to add a column listing the lighting functions for which each Contracting Parties accepts/issues approvals.

- Example of grouping of lighting device regulations
Mr. Grigorescu introduced an example of the necessary structure to allow the grouping of existing forward lighting regulations into a new UN regulation (document SLR-07-06). He also showed an analysis of the Contracting Parties applying (or not) the various forward lighting regulations (based on an excerpt of the document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/343) and suggested to ask those Contracting Parties who have not signed all the concerned Regulations to consider signing the missing ones. Mr. Draper, observing the analysis of Mr. Grigorescu (now available as document SLR-07-06/Annex 1), pointed out that most of the mandatory Regulations are adopted by all CPs. Dr. Manz commented that the proposed system will only work if all CPs will buy in and the “legacy” Regulations will be frozen. Mr. Gorzkowski suggested to move everything into R-123 and freeze the other front lighting Regulations. The meeting observed that, from a performance point of view, the result is an illuminated road ahead and, to this end, R-123 should be taken into account as it is performance based and “future proof”.
