Download in .pdf format Download in .docx format

Proposal from the Simplification of Lighting Regulations informal group to delete the luminous intensities minimum requirements for the measuring point 50L (which are not in UN R112 and therefore should not be in UN R149) from Table 8 and to correct a typo in the angular position for S100RR in Table 13. Given its urgency, the proposal has been submitted in parallel for GRE consideration (GRE-82-02).

Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling | Session 82 | 22-25 Oct 2019

8. GRE was informed that the three new simplified UN Regulations Nos. [148] on Light-Signalling Devices (LSD), [149] on Road Illumination Devices (RID) and [150] on Retro-Reflective Devices (RRD) were expected to enter into force on 15 November 2019. GRE noted that IWG SLR had identified errors inadvertently introduced in the text of the new UN Regulation No. [149] and that a correction had been submitted to the WP.29 session in November 2019 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2019/125, GRE-82-02). GRE supported the correction.

69. The World Forum considered the draft amendments under agenda items 4.6.1 to 4.6.15 and recommended their submission to AC.1 for voting, subject to the following modifications:

  • Item 4.6.3, document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2019/81, last page, Table A2-1, line “Rear position pair (MR)”, replace “15°/15°” with “15°/10°”.
  • Item 4.6.5, document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2019/125, amend the title to read “Supplement 1 to the original series of UN Regulation No. [149] on Road Illumination Devices (RID)”.
