Proposal to amend GRE/2016/33 and GRE-76-17 pursuant to discussions at the October 2016 GRE-76 session:

  1. The direct reference to Regulations Nos. 97 and 116 that was included in GRE-76-17, para. 2.37. was removed based on the observation of the representative of Finland on a potential split, in the future, of some of the Regulations under the responsibility of GRSG.
  2. In another remark from the representative of Finland, the word “indicator” that was missing in the last sentence of para. 2.37. in the text of the proposals GRE/2016/33 and GRE-76-17 has been added.
  3. Based on the comments from the representatives of France, UK, Finland and Japan, the area of the apparent surface, mentioned in GRE/2016/33 and GRE-76-17, para. 5.30. (c) has been lowered from 50 cm2 to 20 cm2, in the case of one indicator is being installed on the vehicle. If two indicators are installed, the area of the apparent surface should not exceed 10 cm2 per indicator.

Discussion(s):
Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling | Session 77 | 4-7 Apr 2017

18. The expert from OICA introduced a revised proposal with a view to defining and describing the operation of the external status indicators for vehicle alarm systems, alarm systems and immobilizers, as contained in Regulations Nos. 97 and 116 (GRE-77-25). Several experts reiterated their concerns that the proposed text, on the one hand, stated that such indicators were not considered lamps within the scope of Regulation No. 48, but, on the other hand, introduced requirements for the indicators. In the absence of a consensus on the issue, the Chair decided to postpone its consideration to the next session.

24. Due to lack of time, GRE could not consider ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/23, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/24, GRE-77-25 and GRE-78-05.
