25. GRE addressed a proposal by the expert of TF SR that introduced a new LED substitute light source category H11/LED in R.E.5 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2019/21, GRE-82-03 and GRE-82-12). The experts from France and the United Kingdom expressed concerns about the thermal behaviour of this category. The expert from IEC provided additional explanations (GRE-82-45). Nevertheless, GRE requested TF SR to address the raised issues at its next session on 10 December 2019 and invited all concerned experts to take part in the meeting.
