17. GRE noted that the expert from France had withdrawn its proposal to modify the speed threshold in paragraph 6.22.7.4.3. (GRE-71-18).

19. The expert from France introduced GRE-71-18 proposing two amendments to series 04 and 05 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48:

(a) The first amendment introduced interdependent lamp systems in para. 5.18.4. (b) and was based on ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2014/21 adopted during March 2014 session as a new supplement for 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48.

(b) The second amendment suggested that the speed limit in paragraph 6.22.7.4.3 was reduced from 70 to 60 km/h and the requirements of paragraph 6.22.7.4.3(a) was amended to indicate a clear alternative to either detect the motorway conditions with sensors or only activate the E mode above a speed of 110 km/h. The objective of this amendment proposal was to improve the performance of the system by avoiding unnecessary on-off activation of the motorway light.

20. GRE adopted proposal (a) above and requested the secretariat to transmit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their November 2014 sessions as draft supplement to the 04 and 05 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48. GRE decided to come back to proposal (b) at its next session.
