Proposal to

  1. remove the prohibition against lamps “reciprocally incorporated” with any other lamp, correcting an oversight from a previous amendment process, and
  2. update the definition of “stop lamp” in order to allow the use of different stop lamp activation methods for powered two-wheelers as currently applicable for four-wheelers; e.g. by the application of a retarder or a similar device.

112. WP.29 recalled the recommendation of AC.2 not to vote on the amendment proposals to UN Regulation No. 53 under agenda items 4.6.4 and 4.6.5 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/86 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/87), and to keep those items as pending proposals awaiting amendments to UN Regulation No. 78. The representative of IMMA pointed out that, apart from amendments on stop lamps which required corresponding modifications to UN Regulation No. 78, the amendment proposals UN Regulation No. 53 also contained corrections of errors. He proposed to extract those corrections from ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/86 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/87 and to submit them for consideration to the March 2019 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1. WP.29 supported IMMA and requested the secretariat to revise the documents accordingly.
