This collective amendment on the stability of photometric performance during the heat test, with particular reference to the movement of the cut-off line, clarifies the test cycle and also aligns the requirements of Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123. In addition to resolving problems of interpretation presented by the current text, this collective amendment will assist the Informal Working Group “Simplification of Lighting and Light-Signalling Regulations” in drafting the new simplified Regulations which is underway.

15. The expert from GTB proposed to clarify the heat test cycle relating to the movement of the passing beam cut-off in Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/32). The experts from EC and UK expressed concerns that the proposals would modify the performance requirements and might have safety implications. Therefore, these experts felt that the proposals should be formulated in the form of new series of amendments to the above Regulations, rather than supplements. The experts from Finland, France, Germany, Japan, GTB and OICA advocated for supplements and pointed out that the proposed amendments would neither raise the required level of stringency nor have safety implications. Finally, GRE adopted the proposals and requested the secretariat to include them into the package for submission to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2017 sessions (see para. 10 above).
