Document GRE/2016/30
Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 4, 6, 7, 23, 38, 50, 77, 87, 91 and 119
Status: Superseded

This proposal removes the requirement to indicate the rated wattage in the marking of lamps equipped with electronic light source control gear and/or non-replaceable light sources and/or light source module(s). From an electronic point of view, the information of the wattage brings no benefit and is confusing if the same module is used in different systems and at different wattages.

13. The expert of GTB presented a proposal for amendments to Regulations Nos. 4, 6, 7, 23, 38, 50, 77, 87, 91 and 119 to harmonize the requirement for the marking of wattage for signal lighting functions with the requirement for lighting functions (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/30). GRE adopted the proposals and decided to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2017 sessions as part of the consolidated amendment proposals (see para. 10 above). During the adoption, the expert from the UK questioned the urgency of the proposal.
