7. On behalf of the Informal Working Group “Simplification of the Lighting and Light-Signalling Regulations” (IWG SLR), the expert from IEC introduced a revised proposal for the draft Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/5 and Corr.1, GRE-75-02, GRE-75-03 and GRE-75-04), together with proposals for simplifying Regulations Nos. 37, 99 and 128 by moving light sources data sheets from Annex 1 to these Regulations to the Resolution (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/2, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/3 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/4). The experts from Germany, France, Italy, UK, CLEPA, GTB and OICA commented on the proposals, in particular on phasing out of light source categories and on the legal form of amendments to Regulations Nos. 37, 99 and 128 (supplements or new series of amendments).

8. GRE adopted the draft Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/5 and Corr.1), as amended by Annex II, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 for consideration at its November 2016 session. GRE also adopted proposals for amendments to Regulations Nos. 37, 99 and 128 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/2, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/3 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/4) not amended and requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1) for consideration and vote at their November 2016 sessions as, respectively, draft Supplement 45 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 37, draft Supplement 12 to the original version of Regulation No. 99 and draft Supplement 6 to the original version of Regulation No. 128. The expert of Germany reserved his position on the adopted proposals.
