Proposal to introduce requirements for replaceable light-emitting diode (LED) light sources for forward lighting in the new Regulation on Road Illumination Devices (RID). As the Informal Working Group “Simplification of the Lighting and Light-Signalling Regulations” (IWG SLR) continues working on the new RID Regulation, it is not possible to indicate all detailed modifications that will be required to incorporate the replaceable LED light sources for forward lighting. However, in general, only simple editorial changes will be required. Further work is required to identify the changes that will be required in the annexes.

Discussion(s):
Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling | Session 78 | 24-27 Oct 2017

14. Pending the outcome of the discussion on light emitting diode (LED) substitute light sources (see agenda item 5, paras. 17-19), GRE agreed to postpone consideration of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/14, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/15 and GRE-78-04.

20. On behalf of the Task Force on LED retrofits and substitutes (TF SR), the expert from Germany presented their status report (GRE-79-16). GRE supported the proposed two-step approach and mechanical interlock as a solution to avoid misuse of light emitting diode (LED) substitutes.

21. GRE recalled the earlier proposals by GTB to introduce LED substitutes and replaceable light sources into the new LSD and RID Regulations (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/14, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/15 and GRE-78-04) and noted that ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/15 had been incorporated in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/3. GRE invited TF SR to update ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/14 and GRE-78-04.

22. The expert from GTB pointed out that the GTB guidelines for introducing and evaluating LED light source categories that were intended for forward lighting applications (GRE-77-04) should be published as a reference document on the GRE website. GRE agreed to this request.
