Proposal for the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 113
Status: Adopted

Proposal to:

  1. correct provisions on bend lighting for motorcycles adopted by WP.29 as Supplement 2 (document WP.29/2012/83),
  2. reference the compliance requirements for installation contained in Regulations Nos. 48, 53, 72 and 86,
  3. clarify the definition of “type”, with regard to manufacturer, trade names and marks,
  4. introduce editorial improvements to the requirements for markings,
  5. amend the formula for the dirt mixture used in testing to address an error introduced by Supplement 9 to the 01 series of amendments to UN R45,
  6. clarify the test cycle with regard to the stability of photometric performance during the heat test, with particular reference to the movement of the cut-off line, and
  7. harmonize related requirements across Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123.
This proposal consolidates the regulation prior to its being “frozen” and superseded by the three new comprehensive regulations (forward lighting, light-signalling, and retro-reflective devices) drafted under the Simplification of Lighting Regulations program.
