This collective amendment extends the usage of LED light sources of UN R128 to front lighting Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123 (as presented in the previous session document GRE-75-14). The proposal would allow for the use of regulated replaceable LED light sources according to Regulation No. 128 in all applications where the use of LED modules is already permitted.

16. The expert from GTB proposed to introduce into Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123 provisions for standardized replaceable light emitting diode (LED) light sources approved according to Regulation No. 128 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/34). He also outlined the upcoming amendment proposals to Regulation No. 128, including the introduction of ‘thermal grade’ as a new characteristic of LED light sources (GRE-76-13). The experts from France, Germany, Italy and UK indicated the far-reaching character and scale of the proposed amendments, and the need to study them in detail. They also expressed a preference for considering the proposed amendments simultaneously with proposals for amendments to Regulation No. 128. Some experts pointed out that the thermal behaviour of LEDs could depend on their installation and the temperature in the engine compartment, and were of the view that the provisions of Regulations Nos. 48 and 85 should be taken into account as well. GRE invited experts to consider these issues before the next session.
