France argues that the requirement is design-restrictive, unnecessary given the objective criteria for luminous output and photometric grid points of the regulation, and obsolete given improvements in LED technologies. GRE-71-0010
Tell-tale requirements in Regulations Nos. 48 and 121 and proposal of a task force (Netherlands)
GRE-71-11 24 Mar 2014 Working Party Installation of Lighting and Lighting-Signalling Equipment Installation of Lighting Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Installation of Lighting and Light-signalling Devices Discussion document on tell-tale requirements in Regulation No. 48 versus Regulation No. 121 and consideration of establishing a task force to further discuss the issues involved. Pursuant to discussions at the previous two GRE sessions concerning the use of the term "failure tell-tale" in relation to daytime running lamps and adaptive front lighting systems (AFS) in UN R48 and the potential impact on UN R121 concerning the "location and identification of hand controls, tell-tales and indicators", the Netherlands proposes the formation of a special task force to study the issues and propose draft amendments for lighting regulations as warranted. GRE-71-0011

Alternative to the proposal for Supplement 6 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112 (Germany, Netherlands, and IEC)
GRE-71-13 25 Mar 2014 Working Party Headlamps Emitting an Asymmetrical Passing Beam Asymmetrical Beam Headlamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Motor Vehicle Headlamps Emitting an Asymmetrical Passing Beam or a Driving Beam or Both and Equipped with Filament Lamps and/or Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Modules Document GRE/2013/62 concerning electronic light source control gear proposed to introduce requirements to avoid intentional non-approved (voltage) variation of the principal passing beam using halogen light sources and to harmonize them with the operating voltage requirements in UN Regulation No. 48. The objective of this proposal is to restrict the voltage at headlamps equipped with (halogen) filament lamp light sources in order to avoid excessively high or low (semi-) permanent luminous intensity of the headlamp and consequently shorter lifetime of the halogen light source. This submission takes into account the positions presented in documents GRE/2013/44, GRE/2013/62, GRE-70-17, and GRE-70-34. GRE-71-0013

The objective of this provision is to improve the safety of vulnerable road users by better informing them about the intention of a heavy goods vehicle to make a turn. Germany believes this to be a simple measure that will improve the safety level especially for cyclists and pedestrians located in the blind spot area of a heavy goods vehicle. GRE-71-0025
Proposal for further amendments to Regulation No. 10 (Belgium)
GRE-71-26 28 Mar 2014 Working Party Electromagnetic Compatibility Electromagnetic Compatibility Uniform provisions concerning the approval of vehicles with regard to electromagnetic compatibility Construction of Coaches and Buses Coach and Bus Construction Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Category M2 or M3 Vehicles with regard to their General Construction Text originally prepared by Belgium to propose amendments to Regulation No. 107 to align the additional safety prescriptions for trolleybuses (Annex 12) with the corresponding electrical standards (see document GRSG/2013/16). During discussion in the October 2013 session of GRSG, some Contracting Parties felt that the prescriptions for electromagnetic compatibility of trolleybuses belong in Regulation No. 10. So these prescriptions are taken out of the amended proposal (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRSG/2014/19) and are proposed here for consideration by GRE for further action. GRE-71-0026
Proposal for amendments to document GRE/2014/13 (Japan)
GRE-71-27 29 Mar 2014 Working Party Installation of Lighting and Lighting-Signalling Equipment Installation of Lighting Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Installation of Lighting and Light-signalling Devices Document GRE/2014/13 proposes to ensure that the introduction of the new class F marking materials does not conflict with the mandatory requirements for existing class C materials. The addition of Class F brings markings required under certain countries' national legislation within the UN regulatory system. However, Japan actually prohibits the use of white retro-reflective markings on the rear of vehicles. Therefore, Japan proposes the addition of a footnote confirming the right of Contracting Parties to prohibit the use of Class F markings under national legislation. GRE-71-0027
Proposal for amendments to document GRE/2013/65/Rev.1 (Japan)
GRE-71-28 29 Mar 2014 Working Party Retro-reflective Markings Retro-reflective Markings Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Retro-reflective Markings for Vehicles of Category M, N and O Document GRE/2013/65/Rev.1 proposes a new class F of marking materials designed with chevron type pattern to be applied to special utility vehicles or trailers not ordinarily covered by standard contour marking materials. The proposal also attempts to harmonize a number of national requirements. Japan, however, prohibits white retro-reflecting materials at the rear of vehicles for safety reasons. Therefore, Japan proposes to clarify that the approval of Class F retro-reflective markings is dependent upon their definition within national regulatory requirements. GRE-71-0028
OICA proposal for amendments to the 04 , 05 and 06 series of amendments of Regulation No. 48 (OICA)
GRE-71-29 29 Mar 2014 Working Party Installation of Lighting and Lighting-Signalling Equipment Installation of Lighting Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Installation of Lighting and Light-signalling Devices Presently, UN R48 requires that reverse lights be switched off when cornering lights are switched off. OICA argues that the simultaneous lightning of both cornering lamps for slow maneuvers in forward motion (e.g., while parking a vehicle) can increase safety by improved illumination of surroundings. Therefore, OICA proposes that cornering lights be allowed to remain on as long as the vehicle speed does not exceed 10 km/h. GRE-71-0029
India’s Comments on document GRE/2014/7 (India)
GRE-71-30 31 Mar 2014 Working Party Position and Indicator Lamps for Motorcycles Motorcycle Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Front Position Lamps, Rear Position Lamps, Stop Lamps, Direction Indicators and Rear-Registration Plate Illuminating Devices for Vehicles of Category L In document GRE/2014/7, IMMA proposed to introduce the possibility of interdependent lamps for dedicated motorcycle lamps as Supplement 17 to Regulation No. 50. The concern was that the rear trunk lid commonly used for four-wheeled vehicles may be adapted for future scooter type motorcycles to secure the storage space for helmet, etc. Current lamp requirements impose design constraints that may hamper the proper development of such storage features. In this document, India proposes to clarify that the installation height of the device must be less than or equal to 750 mm. GRE-71-0030
India’s comments on document GRE/2014/9 (India)
GRE-71-31 31 Mar 2014 Working Party Installation of Motorcycle Lighting Motorcycle Lighting Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Category L3 Vehicles with regard to the Installation of Lighting and Light-signalling Devices In document GRE/2014/9, IMMA proposed the use of different brake lamp activation methods and the introduction of high-mounted stop lamps to improve the conspicuity of "powered two-wheelers" under Regulation No. 53.
