Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 7, 23, 38, 48, 77, 91 and 119
Document GRE/2016/31
12 August 2016

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.

6. (a) | Regulation No. 48: Proposals for amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments

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.

4. | Simplification of lighting and light-signalling Regulations

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). The proposal received comments from the experts of Italy, UK and OICA. GRE agreed to take out the amendment proposal to Regulation No. 48 and to consider it separately at the next GRE session. GRE adopted the remaining proposals, as amended by Annex II to the report, and requested the secretariat 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).

7. (b) | UN Regulation No. 7 (Position, stop, and end-outline lamps)

28. The expert from GTB withdrew ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/13 with proposals for amendments to Regulations Nos. 6, 23, 38, 77, 91 and 119. GRE noted that this document also contained an additional proposal of the secretariat to correct a mistake that had been introduced by Supplement 22 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7. GRE adopted a correction, as laid down in Annex III of the GRE-75 session report, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their November 2016 sessions.

7. (e) | Regulation No. 23 (Reversing lamps)

33. The expert from GTB withdrew their proposal to update the provisions on failure of light sources when a tell-tale indicating failure is installed (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/13).

7. (j) | Regulation No. 77 (Parking lamps)

40. The expert from GTB withdrew their proposal to update the provisions on failure of light sources when a tell-tale indicating failure is installed (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/13).

7. (m) | Regulation No. 91 (Side-marker lamps)

44. The expert from GTB withdrew their proposal to update the provisions on failure of light sources when a tell-tale indicating failure is installed (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/13).

7. (q) | Regulation No. 119 (Cornering lamps)

49. The expert from GTB withdrew their proposal to update the provisions on failure of light sources when a tell-tale indicating failure is installed (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/13).
