34. On behalf of the Special Interest Group for DRL of L-category vehicles, the expert from Japan proposed a new requirement for automatic switching from DRL to the headlamp for L3 category (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/19). The expert from India suggested deletion of the wording “passing beam” from the text (GRE-79-20). Some GRE experts supported in principal ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/19, but expressed concerns about the proposed introduction of a new category of daytime running lamps with the maximum luminous intensity of 700 cd. GRE invited experts to send their comments to the Special Interest Group and agreed to continue consideration of the proposal at the next session.
