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 (CoP) requirements,
  3. reference the compliance requirements for installation contained in Regulations Nos. 48, 53, 72 and 86,
  4. clarify the definition of “type”, with regard to manufacturer, trade names and marks,
  5. introduce editorial improvements to the requirements for markings,
  6. 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, and
  7. 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 proposal consolidates UN R23 prior to the restructuring of lighting equipment regulations into three texts (forward lighting, light-signalling, and retro-reflective devices).
