Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling | Session 70 | 21-23 Oct 2013

9. The expert from GTB introduced ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/51 amending activation criteria for Class “E” passing beam of an Adaptive Front-lighting System (AFS). GRE adopted this proposal, not amended, and requested the secretariat to submit the proposal to WP.29 and the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1) for consideration at their March 2014 sessions as draft Supplement 4 to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48. GRE agreed to reconsider GRE-70-28, provided that a Contracting Party supporting it would justify the need for introducing the amendment to 04 and 05 series of amendments.
