Proposal to clarify the definition of “type” with regard to manufacturer, trade names and marks.

Discussions and Outcomes
71st GRE session (31 Mar-3 Apr 2014)

31. The expert from GTB presented ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/3 clarifying the definition of “type” with regard to manufacturer, trade names and marks and to introduce editorial improvements to the requirements for markings. This document superseded ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/45 and GRE-70-02 adopted by GRE at its seventieth session. Various experts identified a number of issues which would require further consideration and clarification. GRE agreed to continue this discussion at the next session and suggested that ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/3 become part of a horizontal document collecting common provisions of UN lighting and light-signalling Regulations (see agenda item 6 below).

70th GRE session (21-23 Oct 2013)

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.
