Document GRE/2016/31
Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 7, 23, 38, 48, 77, 91 and 119
Status: Superseded
Submitted by GTB

The current requirements on light source failure in lamps equipped with multiple light sources differ across UN Regulations. GTB submitted and then withdrew a proposal to align these requirements (GRE/2016/13). This updated proposal improves upon the text of the previous proposal to refine the requirements for lamps equipped with several light sources, including in systems fitted with an operating tell-tale that indicates the failure of any one of these light sources. In the case of failure of any one light source in a single lamp containing more than one light source, either the light intensity must comply with the minimum intensity required in the table of standard light distribution in space or, for lamps used in systems where a tell-tale indicates the failure of any one of the light sources, the light intensity in the axis of reference must be at least 50 per cent of the minimum intensity required.

Discussions and Outcomes
77th GRE session (4-7 Apr 2017)
GRE-77-16

20. The expert from GTB proposed to clarify the requirements for tell-tales indicating a failure of different lamps (GRE-77-16). The expert from OICA introduced a proposal to update paragraph 6.9.8. with the common current technologies, where the instrument panel remains permanently illuminated whenever the engine is running (GRE-77-20). The experts from Italy, Netherlands and UK indicated their support to GRE-77-16, but were of the view that the wording in GRE-77-20 would need improvement. The experts of Germany and SAE pointed out that both proposals had a link to Regulation No. 121 and that the Working Party on General Safety (GRSG), dealing with this Regulation, should be informed. Finally, GRE invited GTB and OICA to take account of the above comments and to submit an official document to the next session.

14. The expert of GTB proposed to update the requirements on light source failure in lamps equipped with multiple light sources in Regulations Nos. 7, 23, 38, 48, 77, 91 and 119 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/31, GRE-76-07 and GRE-76-22-Rev.1).
