Text prepared by Italy to delete all obsolete references in Regulations Nos. 53 and 74 in order to avoid confusion and possible incorrect application of the requirements containing these references. The deletions cover references to Regulations Nos. 1, 8, 20, 56, 57, 72, 76 and 82. These regulations have all been “frozen” (i.e., they do not apply to new type approvals) and their functions have been taken over by Regulations Nos. 112 and 113.
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.
