Proposal to revise the Italian proposal in order to clarify that the requirements pertain only to characteristics verifiable directly on each lamp in order to avoid confusion with characteristics that can only be verified on the vehicle after installation.
30. Based on an updated proposal tabled by the expert from Italy (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/55/Rev.1), GRE resumed consideration of the insertion of compliance obligations with installation requirements, at the time of type approval of lighting components, according to the component UN Regulations. While several experts supported the proposal, some others were of the view that the underlying issue might go beyond the competence of GRE and that WP.29 should be asked for guidance. The Chair suggested clarifying and possibly rephrasing the wording “UN Regulations … and their series of amendments in force at the time of application for type approval”. GRE agreed to continue this discussion at the next session and decided that this proposal would become part of a horizontal document collecting common provisions of UN lighting and light-signalling Regulations (see agenda item 6 below).
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.
