12. The expert from Germany presented a revised proposal to require side marker lamps to flash together with direction indicators on heavy goods vehicles and buses (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/33, GRE-72-22) as well as additional transitional provisions (GRE-72-05 and GRE-72-06). Following an in-depth discussion, GRE adopted this proposal as contained in Annex VI to the report and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration and vote at their March 2015 sessions as draft Supplement 5 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48. GRE agreed not to include any specific transitional provisions, because the transitional provisions for the 06 series of amendments would also apply to this proposal.
