6. (a) Proposals for amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments
GRE/2015/32 | Proposal to amend the requirement of Regulations No. 7 on tell-tales indicating a failure Proposal from the GRE Task Force on Tell-tales to clarify the requirement and reporting for a telltale to indicate light source failure.
GRE/2015/31 | Proposal to amend the requirements of Regulation No. 48 on tell-tales indicating a failure Proposal from the GRE Task Force on Tell-tales to clarify the requirement and reporting for a telltale to indicate light source failure.
GRE/2015/34 | Proposal for a Supplement to Regulation No. 48 Proposal to include end-outline markers as an aid in the use of indirect vision devices (i.e., UN R46) for long commercial vehicles within the regulation.
GRE-74-10 | Proposal for a Supplement to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 Proposal to correct the transitional provisions with regard to the application of paragraph 6.2.7.6.1. in the 06 series of amendments in order to align with the 05 series of amendments.
GRE-74-22/Rev.1 | Proposal for a supplement to Regulation No. 48 Revised proposal to include end-outline markers as an aid in the use of indirect vision devices (i.e., UN R46) for long commercial vehicles within the regulation, based on the previous document GRE/2015/34.
GRE-74-16 | Revised proposal to amend malfunction/failure telltale requirements under UN R48 Further refinements from the GRE Task Force on Tell-tales to clarify the requirement and reporting for a telltale to indicate light source failure (superseding upon document GRE/2015/31).
GRE/2015/33 | Proposal to amend the requirements of Regulation No. 87 on tell-tales indicating a failure Proposal from the GRE Task Force on Tell-tales to clarify the requirement and reporting for a telltale to indicate light source failure.
GRE/2015/21 | Proposal for Supplements to the 04, 05 and 06 series of amendments to Regulations No. 48 Proposal to delete the requirement for automatic leveling devices for all headlamps with light emitting diode (LED) light sources based upon the results of the GTB glare study. The proposal argues that the restriction discriminates against LED light sources based upon an erroneous understanding of light-source relevance to driver glare.
GRE-73-14 | Proposal for Supplement 6 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 Proposal to clarify the requirements with regard to daytime running lamps and direction indicators in order to prevent DRL from masking or otherwise interfering with the visibility of the direction indicator lamps. Germany believes that the current text produces different interpretations with different results that risk degrading vehicle safety.
GRE-74-19 | Lamp switch-off requirement in refineries Presentation of conflict between UN R48 and requirements inside oil and chemical refineries where lamps are required to be switched off.
6. (b) Other proposals for amendments to Regulation No. 48
GRE-74-21/Rev.1 | Draft terms of reference for the visibility, glare, and levelling informal group: revision 1
10. New business and late submissions
GRE-74-08 | Consolidation of the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 In November 2013, the GTB proposal for the simplification of the transitional provisions of Regulation No.48 was adopted by WP29 at its 161st session as Supplement 3 to the 06 series. Associated with this proposal was a decision that the secretariat would produce full consolidations of the 04 /05/06 series and these were introduced as Revisions 7, 8 and 9 respectively. At that time, it was also agreed that GTB would produce a consolidation of the 03 series that would be posted on the UNECE Website for reference purposes. It was considered that a consolidation of the final (frozen) state of the 03 series would be useful as a reference for the vehicle manufacturers who may continue to apply for extensions to the original type approvals according to the 03 series. However, with the development of IWVTA and the revision of the 1958 Agreement, this consolidation may have value as “a version of a UN Regulation” as defined in the draft Revision 3. This document is a consolidation produced by the experts of GTB and incorporates all valid text up to, and including, Supplement 5 to the 03 series of amendments (Date of entry into force: 09 December 2010). This consolidation is submitted to GRE for verification and for possible introduction to the UNECE website.
GRE-74-14 | Acronyms/abbreviations used in Vehicle Regulations under the responsibility of GRE
GRE-74-11 | Proposal for a Supplement to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112 Proposal to introduce a new optional “Class B1” headlamp. The proposal would establish photometric requirements for Class B1 based on average real performance of present Class B (halogen/LED) but would not include additional design restrictions such as the luminous flux of light source.
GRE-74-10 | Proposal for a Supplement to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 Proposal to correct the transitional provisions with regard to the application of paragraph 6.2.7.6.1. in the 06 series of amendments in order to align with the 05 series of amendments.
GRE-74-23 | Presentation in support of the proposal for Class B1 headlamps under UN R112 Presentation concerning the proposal (document GRE-74-11) to introduce a new optional “Class B1” headlamp. The proposal would establish photometric requirements for Class B1 based on average real performance of present Class B (halogen/LED) but would not include additional design restrictions such as the luminous flux of light source.
GRE-74-19 | Lamp switch-off requirement in refineries Presentation of conflict between UN R48 and requirements inside oil and chemical refineries where lamps are required to be switched off.
