Discussions and Outcomes
70th GRE session (21-23 Oct 2013)

21. The expert from Italy introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/55 as amended by GRE-70-12 on the compliance obligation of lighting components with installation requirements. The proposal received some comments (GRE-70-21). GRE agreed to finalize this subject at its next session on the basis of a revised document, which the expert from Italy volunteered to prepare.

22. The expert from GTB introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/45 as amended by GRE-70-02 clarifying the “type” definition with regard to manufacturer, trade name and marks. GRE adopted this proposal as reproduced in Annex III to the report and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2014 sessions, as part of upcoming amendments to the corresponding UN Regulations, awaiting the adoption of the revised version of ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/55.

69th GRE session (8-11 Apr 2013)

25. GRE considered ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/16, introduced by the experts from Austria and Poland, clarifying the obligation of compliance with the installations requirements of devices which obtained type approval according to the component regulations. The expert from Italy introduced GRE-69-20, providing an alternative wording. GRE didn’t support ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/16. GRE agreed to resume consideration on this matter on the basis of a revised proposal, which the expert from Italy volunteered to prepare on the basis of GRE-69-20, for the October 2013 session of GRE.
