6. (a) | UN Regulation No. 48 (Installation of Lighting and Light-Signalling Devices)

17. The expert from OICA proposed aligning the requirement for the visibility of red light towards the front and/or white light toward the rear of the vehicle in various series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48 with the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulations Nos.148 and 149 (GRE-88-17 and GRE-88-18).

18. GRE adopted GRE-88-18 and decided to include it in a new 09 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48. GRE also adopted GRE-88-17 as a Supplement to the series of amendments from 03 to 08 of UN Regulation No. 48. GRE requested the secretariat to submit it for consideration and vote at the November 2023 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as part of draft Supplement 19 to the 06 series of amendments, draft Supplement 6 to the 07 series of amendments and draft Supplement 4 to the 08 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48. GRE decided to postpone the submission of these amendments for the 03, 04 and 05 series of amendments, in order to combine them with future amendment proposals to the same series of amendments.

21. The Chair summarized that the following draft amendments were adopted at this session and would become part of the draft 09 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48:

  1. Headlamp levelling (paragraph 8 above);
  2. Device transition (paragraph 11);
  3. Park condition (paragraph 19);
  4. Manoeuvring lamps on trailers (paragraph 16);
  5. Visibility of red light towards the front and/or white light toward the rear (paragraph 18); and
  6. Transitional provisions (paragraph 20).

22. GRE decided to submit the above proposals for consideration and vote at the March 2024 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as a new 09 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48. At its next session in October 2023, GRE agreed to editorially confirm these proposals without modifying their substantial content and requirements. To this end, GRE suggested that a consolidated text of the draft 09 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48 be prepared.
