Proposal to

  1. insert provisions for the use of incandescent light sources in the case of light source modules and lamps with non-replaceable light sources,
  2. update the Conformity of Production requirements (CoP),
  3. reference the compliance requirements for installation contained in Regulations Nos. 48, 53, 72 and 86, as warranted,
  4. clarify the definition of “type”, with regard to manufacturer, trade names and marks,
  5. introduce editorial improvements to the requirements for markings,
  6. correct an oversight in Supplement 24 to the 01 series of amendments and align the treatment of categories 1, 1a and 1b with other categories and devices.
  7. align the text in the header row of the table in paragraph 6.1 (light emitted by the lamps) with the definitions used in Regulation No. 48 for the installation of “single lamps”, “lamps marked D” and “interdependent lamps”, and
  8. 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).
This supplement consolidates UN R6 prior to its being “frozen” and superseded by the new regulation on light-signalling devices prepared under the Simplification of Lighting Regulations program.
