Request to delete the amendment to paragraph 3.3.4.1.1. in the proposal to introduce requirements for the use of light-emitting diode substitute light sources in the new Regulation on Light-Signalling Devices. The proposed amendment was included in the submission by mistake.

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.
