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
Document GRE/2014/3
17 January 2014

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.

In the view of the ongoing idle period for the existing Regulations (stage 1 of SLR), the expert from Finland sought the consent of GRE to correct a mistake in Supplement 28 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 (GRE-78-06). GRE agreed (see Annex II), and requested the secretariat to submit it, in the proper legal form, to WP.29 and to the Administrative Committee of the 1958 Agreement (AC.1) for consideration and vote at their March 2018 sessions.

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 This document superseded ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2013/45 and GRE-70-02 adopted by GRE at its seventieth session.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).

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.
