Discussions and Outcomes
WP.29/2017/24

10. GRE reviewed and unanimously adopted the pending amendment proposals so as to consolidate the existing Regulations before they are frozen and superseded by three new Regulations that are in drafting:

  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/68,

  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/71,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/72,
  • ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/2013/751,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/76,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/79,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/83,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/85,

  • ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/GRE/2015/16,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/23,

  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/145
  • and Annex IV to ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/GRE/75.
The secretariat was requested to consolidate these proposals, according to the principle ‘one WP.29 document per Regulation’, and to submit them to WP.29 and the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1) for consideration and vote at their March 2017 sessions. The experts from GTB, IEC and SAE volunteered to assist the secretariat by verifying the consolidated amendment proposals.

1Except for the part which was already adopted by WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/75/Rev.1 and Add.1 (note by the secretariat).
2Except for the part which was already adopted by WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/90/Rev.1 (note by the secretariat).
3Except for the part which was already adopted by WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/92/Rev.1 (note by the secretariat).
4Except for the part which was already adopted by WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/93/Rev.1 (note by the secretariat).
5Except for Section B on Regulation No. 45 which was already submitted to WP.29 as ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/77 (note by the secretariat).

21. GRE requested IWG SLR to consider GRE-71-23 and to consolidate into a horizontal document, harmonized definitions in lighting and light-signalling Regulations. For the same purpose, GRE referred to IWG SLR collective proposals, such as compliance obligations with installation requirements, definition of “type” with regard to the manufacturer and trade names/marks and provisions for the conformity of production, including those that had been referred back by WP.29 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/55/Rev.1, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/68, ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/2013/69, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/71, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/72, ECE/ TRANS/WP.29/2013/76, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/79, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/83, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/84, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/85, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/ 2013/86, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/87, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/88, ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/2013/89, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/94, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/3).

[Proposal returned to GRE for further consideration.]

52. The expert from the UK, introduced GRE-70-39, proposing amendments to the ten documents listed above in reply to European Commission letter (GRE-70-22) stating concerns with GRE documents submitted for WP.29 adoption. GRE agreed on the proposed corrections and requested the secretariat to submit the document as an informal document for consideration at the November 2013 session of WP.29.

GRE/2013/17
GRE/2013/26

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;

20. The expert from Germany introduced the documents listed above, proposing simplifications of Conformity of Production (COP) requirements for these Regulations. The expert from the Netherlands expressed concerns that these proposals might introduce excessive tolerances by deleting the statistical confidence of 95 per cent requirement. The expert from Germany introduced GRE-69-33, GRE-69-34 and GRE-69-35 respectively amending ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/23, ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/24 and ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/31, as reproduced in Annex V. GRE adopted these three proposals as amended by Annex V to the report as well as the remaining proposals (not amended), and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2013 sessions as draft (see para. 19 item (a) to (j)):
