Transposition of the WLTP GTR into a UN Regulation (EC)
07 Nov 2015 World Forum Informal Documents Light Vehicle Emissions Type Approval Test Procedure WLTP Type Approval Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Emissions Test Procedure WLTP Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure Discussion paper concerning the transposition of GTR 15 into a UN Regulation. The paper raises two possible routes: 1) a UN Regulation identical to EU legislation but that would not be not applied (in its entirety as a distinct rule) outside the EU; 2) a "hierarchical" UN Regulation that combines all elements of all emissions thresholds at their most stringent level with lower levels of approval corresponding to regional/national requirements. The EC proposes option 2 as this would allow for a global rule where Contracting Parties could certify systems to standards outside their markets (e.g., Japan could issue approvals to EU standards and vice versa) under the UN Regulation.

01 Sep 2015 World Forum 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.
