GRE will also consider amendment proposals to Regulations Nos. 48, 53, 74 and 86 which introduce the so-called “change index” developed for the LSD, RID and RRD Regulations.

GRE-79-11 | SLR: Proposal to improve the general requirements for the "Change Index" Proposal from the SLR informal group to improve the general requirements proposed in documents GRE/2018/16 and GRE/2018/18.
GRE-79-12/Rev.1 | SLR: Explanation of the “Change Index” Because the new lighting device regulations (LSD, RRD, and RID) each cover multiple lighting functions (e.g. direction indicators, marker lamps, DRL in the LSD regulation), the potential exists for a change in stringency to impact some, but not all functions within the scope of each regulation. The change index is proposed in order to track the impact on each function and so restrict the need for new type approvals only to those functions impacted by a change in stringency.
GRE/2018/16 | UN R48: Proposal for Supplement [10] to the 06 series of amendments Proposal from the informal working group on the Simplification of Lighting Regulations to introduce the definition and general requirements for use of the "change index" established via the three new simplified Regulations on Light-Signalling Devices (LSD), Road Illumination Devices (RID) and Retro-Reflective Devices (RRD).
GRE/2018/18 | Collective amendments to Regulations Nos. 53, 74 and 86 Proposal from the informal working group on the Simplification of Lighting Regulations to introduce the definition and general requirements for use of the “change index” established via the three new simplified Regulations on Light-Signalling Devices (LSD), Road Illumination Devices (RID) and Retro-Reflective Devices (RRD).

Finally, GRE may wish to revert to the proposals submitted by the expert from the International Automotive Lighting and Light Signalling Expert Group (GTB) with the aim to introduce light emitting diode (LED) substitutes and replaceable light sources in the new LSD and RID Regulations.

GRE-78-35/Rev.1 | Underlying Principles of Approval Marking for the LSD Regulation (revised)
GRE-79-22 | India’s comments on underlying principles of approval marking for LSD regulation Proposal for a marking requirement for lamps to be approved under the LSD regulation. This proposal is to take care of specific concerns being observed in the marking of the combined lamps for identification, indication of particular series of amendment for each device and to take care of certain difficulties as seen in the proposal submitted by IWG-SLR document no GRE-78-35-Rev.1.
GRE-79-32/Rev.1 | Proposal for amendments to Regulations Nos. 98, 112, 113 and 123 Recent amendments to the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) 108 allows UN Regulation headlamps to be used on vehicles in Canada. CMVSS 108 specifically refers to the existing UN Regulations. In order to continue the acceptance of headlamps compliant with UN Regulations in Canada after the switch to the new Road Illumination Devices (RID) regulation, the current regulations should make clear references to RID before they are frozen and superseded.

GRE-79-16 | Report of the Substitute/Replacement Light Sources task force
GRE/2018/21 | Proposal to amend the approval code for light sources Proposal to align the approval code for light sources approved according to Regulations Nos. 37, 99 and 128, with the approval number as prescribed by Revision 3 of the 1958 Agreement, schedule 4.
GRE-78-18 | Distinction between "approval code" and "approval number" under the 1958 Agreement
GRE-79-16 | Report of the Substitute/Replacement Light Sources task force
GRE/2017/14 | Proposal to introduce requirements for the use of light-emitting diode substitute light sources in the new Regulation on Light-Signalling Devices Proposal to introduce the following changes into the draft new Regulation on light-signalling devices:<ol><li>Use of LED substitute light source(s) is allowed and does not constitute a change of the lamp type. However, lamp performances shall be tested during type approval also with the LED substitute light source. Approval of the lamp using filament light source(s) is a prerequisite for approval of the lamp using LED substitute light source(s).</li><li>COP testing of the lamp is required with an (etalon) filament light source only, because the LED substitute is the counterpart light source of the filament light source, resulting in equivalent photometrical lamp performance. The quality i.e. the equivalence to the filament light source, is controlled in R128.</li><li>Use of LED substitute light sources is at the discretion of the applicant, who shall declare this use, if any, to the Approval Authorities at the time of application for the first lamp approval or subsequent extension of approval issued for the version using the LED substitute light source.</li><li>The use of LED substitute light source(s) in a certain lamp type shall be indicated on the lamp by marking of the LED substitute light source category, in addition to the marking of the filament light source of which the LED substitute light source is the counterpart.</li><li>This marking on the lamp will be used for checking the allowance for use of lamps with LED substitute light sources in application of the Regulation on lamps installation on vehicle.</li><li>In case a lamp with colour filter(s) is approved for using LED substitute light source(s), this lamp shall be marked “G” to indicate that this lamp shall be equipped with LED substitute light source(s) marked “G” for colour and luminous intensity quality reasons.</li><li>The indication of both the filament light source and of its LED counterpart light source, if any, shall be explicitly provided in the communication form.</li></ol>
GRE/2017/15 | Proposal to introduce requirements for the use of replaceable light emitting diode light sources for forward lighting in the new Regulation on Road Illumination Devices Proposal to introduce requirements for replaceable light-emitting diode (LED) light sources for forward lighting in the new Regulation on Road Illumination Devices (RID). As the Informal Working Group "Simplification of the Lighting and Light-Signalling Regulations" (IWG SLR) continues working on the new RID Regulation, it is not possible to indicate all detailed modifications that will be required to incorporate the replaceable LED light sources for forward lighting. However, in general, only simple editorial changes will be required. Further work is required to identify the changes that will be required in the annexes.
GRE-78-04 | Correction to the proposal for RID LED substitute light source requirements (GRE/2017/14) Request to delete the amendment to paragraph 3.3.4.1.1. in the proposal to introduce requirements for the use of light-emitting diode substitute light sources in the new Regulation on Light-Signalling Devices. The proposed amendment was included in the submission by mistake.

GRE/2017/23 | Proposal for Supplement 11 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 Proposal to re-insert paragraph 5.11.1.3. with regard to switching between headlamps and DRLs. Although GRE agreed to delete this and related paragraphs during its 77th session (see para. 19 and Annex II of the 77th session report), the Task Force on Headlamp Switching decided upon further review to retain the possibility to switch ON DRLs in conjunction with at least the rear position lamps without the need for the position lamps tell-tale in that case.
GRE/2017/24 | Proposal for Supplement 11 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 Proposal to enable approval of side-marker and position lamps with regard to switching requirements when mutually incorporated. Vehicles include designs where lamps wrap around vehicle corners. In cases where optional side-marker lamps are grouped with a position lamp that is reciprocally incorporated with the direction indicator, it should be possible to switch off the side-marker lamp (as can be done with the position lamp) in order to improve conspicuity of the direction indicator.
GRE-79-25 | Proposal for the 07 series of amendments to UN R48 and for Supplement 20 to UN R87 a) Proposal to amend UN R48 to clarify the DRL switching-off conditions (also aligning them with the existing switching-off conditions for front position lamps reciprocally incorporated with DI) and/or light intensity reduction when DRL and DI are totally or partially reciprocally incorporated and when their distance is equal or less than 40 mm. b) Proposal to introduce into UN R87 the possibility of a supplemental verification and certification of the “reduced luminous intensity”, fulfilling the pertinent requirements in Regulation No. 48.
