Discussions and Outcomes
GRE-82-26

12. GRE also noted draft consolidated proposals for amendments to UN Regulation Nos. [148] and [150] (GRE-82-30 and GRE-82-26). The Chair invited GRE experts to review these documents and send their comments to IWG SLR.

52. The secretariat drew the attention of GRE to the fact that the new definition of “External status indicator”, which had been introduced by Supplement 11 to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48 (paragraphs 2.7. and 2.37 of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/84), was left out of Supplement 12 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/99/Rev.2). GRE requested the secretariat to submit a rectifying document to the March 2020 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1.

This proposal (WP.29/2018/159/Rev.1) was adopted by the World Forum. Thirty-eight Contracting Parties out of the 0 applying UN R150 were present for the vote by AC.1. Thirty-eight voted in favor with zero against and zero abstaining.

The Chair of GRE presented amendment proposal contained in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/91/Rev.1 to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/119/Rev.1, under agenda items 4.11.4 to 4.11.32, to amend UN Regulations Nos. 3, 4, 6, 7, 19, 23, 27, 38, 48, 50, 53, 69, 70, 74, 77, 86, 87, 91, 98, 104, 112, 113, 119 and 123. WP.29 noted that these proposals had been the result of intensive work of GRE and its IWG on Simplification of Lighting and Light-Signalling Regulations, as well as that further intensive work by the groups was expected towards finalizing the process of simplification of the relevant UN Regulations. The World Forum recommended their submission to AC.1 for voting, subject to the following modification to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2018/105 (Proposal for Supplement 20 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53), agenda item 4.11.18:

Paragraph 6.2.1.2. (a), replace “Class D or E of UN Regulation No. 113” by “Class B, D or E of UN Regulation No. 113”.

113. The World Forum considered the proposals for new UN Regulations on uniform provisions concerning the approval of motor vehicles on Blind Spot Information Systems for the Detection of Bicycles, on Light Signalling Devices (LSD), on Road Illumination Devices (RID) and on Retro-Reflective Devices (RRD) under items 4.12.1 to 4.12.4. The World Forum considered the proposals and recommended their submission to AC.1 for voting.

This proposal (WP.29/2018/159/Rev.1) was adopted by the World Forum. Thirty-eight Contracting Parties out of the 0 applying UN R150 were present for the vote by AC.1. Thirty-eight voted in favor with zero against and zero abstaining.

GRE/2018/38

11. The Secretary of IWG SLR introduced the first proposals for amendments to the original versions of the LSD, RID and RRD UN Regulations (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/36, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/37 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/38). GRE adopted these proposals and noted that some of these amendments were essentially corrections of errors in the original SLR package while others were improvements. GRE stressed the need to rectify the discovered errors, such as the correction of Table 9 in the RID UN Regulation (as proposed in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/37) and the correction of Annex 7 of the RRD UN Regulation (as proposed in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/38) and requested the secretariat to submit these corrections to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2018 sessions as corrigenda to the original SLR package. The “improvement” amendments would be submitted to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2019 sessions, as explained in para. 8 above.

This proposal (WP.29/2018/159/Rev.1) was adopted by the World Forum. Thirty-eight Contracting Parties out of the 0 applying UN R150 were present for the vote by AC.1. Thirty-eight voted in favor with zero against and zero abstaining.
