23. GRE took note of a revised proposal tabled by the expert from Italy, deleting obsolete references in Regulations Nos. 53 and 74 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/38). For Regulation No. 53, the expert from Germany also suggested deleting references to headlamps of Class B of Regulation No. 113 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/32), due to their poor performance and related road safety issues. The expert from IMMA pointed out the industry’s need for transitional provisions and presented a first draft of them in GRE-72-19. GRE invited all stakeholders to re-discuss the issues in the above three documents and to transmit a single revised document for consideration at the next session.
