Proposal for Collective amendments to Regulations Nos. 4, 6, 7, 19, 23, 38, 45, 50, 65, 77, 87, 91, 98, 104, 112, 113, 119 and 123

Text prepared by the International Automotive Lighting and Light Signalling Expert Group (GTB) to clarify the definition of “type”, with regard to manufacturer, trade names and marks and to introduce editorial improvements to the requirements for markings.

Although documents GRE/2013/45 and GRE-70-02 were adopted by GRE at its last (70th) session, this proposal consolidates the amendments and offers editorial improvements to the provisions concerning markings in Regulations Nos. 19, 23, 38, 65 and 119. These editorial improvements aim to clarify that the devices, and not only the samples, shall bear the trade name or mark and align the requirements with the other correctly worded regulations to avoid misunderstanding.

Discussion(s):
Working Party on Lighting and Light-signalling | Session 71 | 31 Mar-3 Apr 2014

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adopted the pending amendment proposals so as to consolidate the existing Regulations before they are frozen and superseded by three new Regulations that are in drafting: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/ 2013/69,
  • 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/ 2013/86,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/87,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/88,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/89,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/902,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/ 2013/923,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/934,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2013/94,
  • ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/2014/31,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/32,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/ GRE/2013/55/Rev.1,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/3,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/7,
  • ECE/TRANS/ WP.29/GRE/2015/16,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/23,
  • ECE/TRANS/WP.29/ GRE/2016/11,
  • 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).

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).
