19. The expert from Germany introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/17, proposing requirements on the use of non-replaceable filament lamps in light sources modules and signalling lamps and referencing to paragraph 2.11 of the IEC 60809, Edition 3 standard. The Chair noted that this standard was not final. He recalled GRE-68-06 reproducing the relevant part of the draft standard. The expert from IEC confirmed that the IEC standard was now final and the proposed text was in compliance with the final text of the standard. The Chair reminded experts of their responsibility to ensure proper use of standards covered by copyrights in their proposals. GRE adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/17 (not amended) and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2013 session as draft:

(a) Supplement 17 to the 00 series of amendments to Regulation No. 4;
(b) Supplement 25 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6;
(c) Supplement 23 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7;
(d) Supplement 20 to the 00 series of amendments to Regulation No. 23;
(e) Supplement 17 to the 00 series of amendments to Regulation No. 38;
(f) Supplement 17 to the 00 series of amendments to Regulation No. 50;
(g) Supplement 17 to the 00 series of amendments to Regulation No. 77;
(h) Supplement 17 to the 00 series of amendments to Regulation No. 87;
(i) Supplement 17 to the 00 series of amendments to Regulation No. 91;
(j) Supplement 4 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 119.

GRE-68-03

19. GRE considered GRE-68-03 superseding ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2012/20, tabled by the expert from Germany, which introduced provisions for the usage of incandescent light sources for light modules and non-replaceable light sources. The proposal received positive comments from some GRE experts. GRE also considered GRE-68-14 improving the text of GRE-68-03. Taking into account the late submission of the proposal and its complexity, GRE agreed, at the request of CLEPA, to resume consideration at its April 2013 session on the basis of a revised proposal by the expert from Germany.

20. Finally, GRE noted GRE-68-06 proposed by the expert from IEC providing information on standards produced by his association.

GRE/2012/20

25. GRE noted the decision of WP.29 and AC.1 to adopt the draft Regulation on standardized LED at their March 2012 session. The expert from GTB introduced GRE-67- 24, updating some of the titles of the related documents and correcting an editorial error in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/9. Accordingly GRE adopted ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/6, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/7, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/8, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/9, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/10, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/11, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/12, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/13, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/14, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2011/15, amended by GRE-67-24, changing the number of some supplements as indicated below, and requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2012 sessions, as part of draft Supplement 16 to UN Regulation No. 4 (see para. 29), as draft Supplement 23 to the 01 series of UN Regulation No. 6, as part of draft Supplement 21 to the 02 series of UN Regulation No. 7 (see para. 29), as part of draft Supplement 19 to UN Regulation No. 23 as amended in Annex III (see para. 29), as draft Supplement 16 to UN Regulation No. 38, as part of draft Supplement 16 to UN Regulation No. 50 (see para. 56), as draft Supplement 15 to UN Regulation No. 77, as part of draft Supplement 16 to UN Regulation No. 87 (see para. 29), as draft Supplement 14 to UN Regulation No. 91 and as part of draft Supplement 02 to the 01 series of UN Regulation No. 119 (see para. 43).

26. The expert from Germany introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2012/20 inserting provisions for the usage of incandescent light sources for light source modules and nonreplaceable light sources. He also presented GRE-67-01, showing the proposed changes to IEC 60809 and IEC 60810, linked in Regulations Nos. 4, 6, 7, 23, 38, 50, 77, 87, 91 and 119. GRE noted some concerns about the timing of the proposal and agreed to keep the item on the agenda until the proposals for IEC 60809 and 60810 are adopted.
