30. The expert from IMMA proposed to allow the use of different activation methods for stop lamps, and to align the stop lamp provisions with those applicable for four-wheelers (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2017/25 and GRE-78-07). GRE noted that a corresponding proposal for amendments to Regulation No. 78 had been submitted to the Working Party on Braking and Running Gear (GRRF). The experts from Finland, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and UK commented on the proposal. The Chair invited the expert of IMMA to update the proposal based on the comments received. GRE decided to consider an updated proposal at the next session that would include the issue of its legal form (supplement or a new series of amendments).
