Proposal to enable the use of alternate colors (per footnote 18 of Table 1 and in line with ISO Standard 2575) for certain lighting tell-tales in order to indicate light source failures in response to the proposals for light failure indicators under UN Regulations Nos. 7, 48 and 87 (GRE/2016/7, GRE/2016/12 and GRE/2016/17) as adopted by GRE. This proposal anticipates use of the same approach in response to plans for additional failure indication requirements for other lighting regulations.

45. GRSG noted the outcome of the recent session of GRE (GRSG-110-04) and the request to align UN Regulation No. 121. In this respect, the expert from Italy presented GRSG-110-06 aimed at clarifying the provisions of UN Regulation No. 121 with respect to the indication of the failure of a light source.

46. GRSG adopted the proposal as reproduced in Annex IV to this report and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2016 sessions, as draft Supplement 9 to the original version of UN Regulation No. 121 and as draft Supplement 1 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 121.
