The current provisions for the failure of one light source (the “N-1” requirement) are difficult to apply as a complete photometric check for all possible combinations of light source failure is required. The revised text follows the approach of supplement 17 to Regulation No. 87 and removes the requirement to check the complete photometric requirement, in case of failure of any light source, when the lamp is fitted on the vehicle with an operating tell-tale.

28 Jan 2015 Working Party Formal Documents Headlamps Equipped with Gas-discharge Light Sources Gas-discharge-light Headlamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Motor Vehicle Headlamps Equipped with Gas-discharge Light Sources This is a proposal to introduce a new HID category (D9S) into Regulation No. 99 with dual-level operation, i.e. with two defined wattage values and corresponding luminous flux values. This new category (D9S) is the first light source in R99 that has two defined power levels. When this dual-level light source is used in a headlamp which is being approved according to Regulation No. 98, the testing and approval provisions must be clearly defined in this Regulation to avoid misinterpretation. Therefore, it is proposed to amend the relevant paragraphs of Regulation No. 98 to take into account the multi-level aspects of D9S and possible future multi-level light sources in Regulation No. 99.
