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.

112. 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”.
