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-74-10 | 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.
