4. Simplification of lighting and light-signalling Regulations
GRE/2016/5 | Proposal for a draft Resolution on the common specification of light source categories Proposal from the informal working group on the Simplification of Lighting Regulations to consolidate data sheets for light-source categories (UN R37 on filament lamps, UN R99 on gas-discharge light sources, and UN R128 on LED light sources). The data sheets for light sources are moved from Annexes 1 of these Regulations to the proposed Resolution. Moreover, the proposals to phase out some filament light source categories (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/29), to introduce new LED light source categories LW3, LY3, LR5, LW5 and LY5 and to align some drawings of category LR4 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/30), all adopted by the Working Party on Lighting and Light-Signalling at its seventy-fourth session, were merged with this proposal.
GRE-75-02 | Modifications to the draft Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2015/28) Proposal from the Informal Working for a new Resolution on light sources to simplify the content and amendment process for the light-source regulations UN R37, 99 and 128. The data sheets for light sources are moved from Annexes 1 of these Regulations to the draft Resolution. In addition, the draft phases out some filament light source categories (per the earlier document GRE/2015/29), add new LED categories LW3, LY3, LR5, LW5, and LY5 (per document GRE/2015/30), and aligns drawings of category LR4 with drawings of these new categories. These latter items were all approved during the 74th GRE session.

6. Regulation No. 48
6. (a) Proposals for amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments
GRE/2016/9 | Proposal of supplements to the 04, 05, and 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48 Proposal for Supplement 17 to the 04 series of amendments, Supplement 10 to the 05 series of amendments and Supplement 8 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48. The proposal seeks to clarify paragraph 6.21.1.2.4. with regard to the application of conspicuity markings on bodywork made of flexible material.
GRE/2016/10 | Proposal for amendments to the 03, 04, 05 and 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48. Proposal to further refine the transitional provisions of UN R48. In 2014, the transitional provisions of UN R48 were changed in order to avoid having more than one series of amendments in force at the same time (via Supplement 3 to the 06 series of amendments). This change allows earlier series of amendments to be "frozen" and used under the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval system (IWVTA) as "versions" of UN R48. However, the possibility for the partial application of a series of amendments resulting from the installation of new equipment on a vehicle approved to an earlier series has been raised within the IWVTA. This proposal refines the transitional provisions in order to enable partial application of a series through an extension of the existing approval rather by requiring a new approval. At the same time, the proposal aims to ensure that the safety objectives of UN R48 are met.
GRE/2016/7 | Proposal for supplements to the 04, 05, and 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48 Proposal from the Task Force on Tell-Tales for Supplement 17 to the 04 series of amendments, for Supplement 10 to the 05 series of amendments and Supplement 8 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48.
GRE/2016/8 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulation No. 48 (Installation of lighting and light-signalling devices) and Regulation No. 87 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-75-12 | OICA comments on document GRE/2016/10 Document GRE/2016/10 proposed to refine the transitional provisions of UN R48 pursuant to possibilities for the application of the regulation within the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval system. Since IWVTA allows for approvals to earlier versions of current regulations, the possibility exists where optional installation of advanced equipment could entail mandatory compliance with the latest version of UN R48. However, UN R48 imposes broad requirements such that efforts to add certain safety equipment are hindered by concerns over compliance with a broad range of requirements under the latest version of UN R48 that raises the consumer price to prohibitive levels. Therefore, OICA supports the solution proposed by GTB (document GRE/2016/10).
GRE/2016/12 | Proposal for Supplement 25 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7 Proposal from the Task Force on Tell-Tales to clarify the requirement for failure indicators.
GRE/2016/17 | Proposal for Supplement 18 to Regulation No. 87 Proposal from the Task Force on Tell-Tales to clarify the requirements for failure indication.
GRE-75-11 | Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/8 OICA proposal to amend the German 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.
GRE-75-11/Rev.1 | Revised proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/8 Revised 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.
6. (b) Other proposals for amendments to Regulation No. 48
GRE-75-17 | Outcome of the 2nd VGL informal group session
7. Other Regulations
7. (a) UN Regulation No. 6 (Direction indicators)
GRE/2016/11 | Proposal for Supplement 26 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 and Supplement 24 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7 Proposal to align the text in the header row of the table in paragraph 6.1 (light emitted by the lamps) with the definitions used in Regulation No. 48 for the installation of "single lamps", "lamps marked D" and "interdependent lamps".
GRE-75-10 | Interpretation of the "One Continuous Line" requirement Request for interpretation on approvals of LED direction indicators integrated with daytime running lamps and using sequential activation of horizontal bars. Germany proposes a task for on sequential activation of direction indicators to develop clear provisions within the regulation, especially with regard to paragraph 5.6 <notextile>(c)</notextile>: sequential activation ... shall be one continuous line with no repeating alternation in the vertical direction.
7. (b) UN Regulation No. 7 (Position, stop, and end-outline lamps)
GRE/2016/11 | Proposal for Supplement 26 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 and Supplement 24 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7 Proposal to align the text in the header row of the table in paragraph 6.1 (light emitted by the lamps) with the definitions used in Regulation No. 48 for the installation of "single lamps", "lamps marked D" and "interdependent lamps".
GRE/2016/12 | Proposal for Supplement 25 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7 Proposal from the Task Force on Tell-Tales to clarify the requirement for failure indicators.
GRE/2016/13 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulations No. 7, 23, 38, 77, 91, and 119 Proposal to refine the requirements for lamps equipped with several light sources, including in systems fitted with an operating tell-tale that indicates the failure of any one of these light sources. In the case of failure of any one light source in a single lamp containing more than one light source, either the light intensity must comply with the minimum intensity required in the table of standard light distribution in space or, for lamps used in systems where a tell-tale indicates the failure of any one of the light sources, the light intensity in the axis of reference must be at least 50 per cent of the minimum intensity required.
7. (c) Regulation No. 10 (Electromagnetic compatibility)
GRE-75-13 | Trolleybuses: applicability of Regulation No. 10
GRE-75-18 | Status report of the Task Force on Electromagnetic Compatibility
7. (d) Regulation No. 19 (Front fog lamps)
GRE/2016/14 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 19, 45, 98, 112, 113 and 123 Proposal to amend the formula for the dirt mixture used in testing to address an error introduced by Supplement 9 to the 01 series of amendments to UN R45 where the specified quantity of "2 &plusmn; 1 parts by weight" of surfactant results in invalid testing. The correct specification should be "2 &plusmn; 1 drops" of surfactant. While GTB notes that the specification should eventually be incorporated differently under the pending simplification of lighting regulations, the organization strongly urges amending UN R45 as quickly as possible.
7. (e) Regulation No. 23 (Reversing lamps)
GRE/2016/13 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulations No. 7, 23, 38, 77, 91, and 119 Proposal to refine the requirements for lamps equipped with several light sources, including in systems fitted with an operating tell-tale that indicates the failure of any one of these light sources. In the case of failure of any one light source in a single lamp containing more than one light source, either the light intensity must comply with the minimum intensity required in the table of standard light distribution in space or, for lamps used in systems where a tell-tale indicates the failure of any one of the light sources, the light intensity in the axis of reference must be at least 50 per cent of the minimum intensity required.
7. (f) Regulation No. 38 (Rear fog lamps)
7. (g) Regulation No. 45 (Headlamp cleaners)
GRE/2016/14 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 19, 45, 98, 112, 113 and 123 Proposal to amend the formula for the dirt mixture used in testing to address an error introduced by Supplement 9 to the 01 series of amendments to UN R45 where the specified quantity of "2 &plusmn; 1 parts by weight" of surfactant results in invalid testing. The correct specification should be "2 &plusmn; 1 drops" of surfactant. While GTB notes that the specification should eventually be incorporated differently under the pending simplification of lighting regulations, the organization strongly urges amending UN R45 as quickly as possible.
7. (h) Regulation No. 50 (Position, stop, direction indicators lamps for mopeds and motorcycles)
GRE/2015/38 | Proposal for Supplement 18 to Regulation No. 50 Proposal to delete the angle of incidence provision that was developed to ensure that the vehicle registration plate is illuminated. Given current technologies (e.g., LED lamps), the performance requirements of Annex 5 can be met without reference to the angle of incidence.
7. (i) Regulation No. 53 (Installation of lighting and light-signalling devices for L3 vehicles)
GRE/2016/15 | Proposal for Supplement 19 to the 01 series of Regulation No. 53 Proposal to remove restrictions that impede the use of bend lighting on motorcycles. UN R53 currently prohibits the use of additional lighting units when the driving beam is in use. This requirement unnecessarily restricts the use of ALU to improve road illumination at night when the motorcycle is banking through a turn.
GRE-75-08 | Proposal for the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 53 Proposal to require automatic switching of motorcycle daytime running lamps to headlamp illumination at night. The concern is that DRL are left on, causing glare. This proposal aligns with the provisions of UN R48.

GRE/2015/42 | Proposal for Supplement 18 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 53 Proposal to allow the use of different brake lamp activation methods and to align the brake lamp provision with those applicable for four-wheelers.
7. (j) Regulation No. 77 (Parking lamps)
GRE/2016/13 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulations No. 7, 23, 38, 77, 91, and 119 Proposal to refine the requirements for lamps equipped with several light sources, including in systems fitted with an operating tell-tale that indicates the failure of any one of these light sources. In the case of failure of any one light source in a single lamp containing more than one light source, either the light intensity must comply with the minimum intensity required in the table of standard light distribution in space or, for lamps used in systems where a tell-tale indicates the failure of any one of the light sources, the light intensity in the axis of reference must be at least 50 per cent of the minimum intensity required.
7. (k) Regulation No. 86 (Installation of lighting and light-signalling devices for agricultural tractors)
GRE/2016/16 | Revised proposal for the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 86 Proposal by the GRE Informal Group “Agricultural Vehicles Lighting Installation” (AVLI) to update and revise Regulation No. 86, superseding document GRE/2015/43.
7. (l) Regulation No. 87 (Daytime running lamps)
GRE/2016/17 | Proposal for Supplement 18 to Regulation No. 87 Proposal from the Task Force on Tell-Tales to clarify the requirements for failure indication.
GRE/2016/8 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulation No. 48 (Installation of lighting and light-signalling devices) and Regulation No. 87 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.
7. (m) Regulation No. 91 (Side-marker lamps)
GRE/2016/13 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulations No. 7, 23, 38, 77, 91, and 119 Proposal to refine the requirements for lamps equipped with several light sources, including in systems fitted with an operating tell-tale that indicates the failure of any one of these light sources. In the case of failure of any one light source in a single lamp containing more than one light source, either the light intensity must comply with the minimum intensity required in the table of standard light distribution in space or, for lamps used in systems where a tell-tale indicates the failure of any one of the light sources, the light intensity in the axis of reference must be at least 50 per cent of the minimum intensity required.
7. (n) Regulation No. 98 (Headlamps with gas-discharge light sources)
GRE/2016/14 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 19, 45, 98, 112, 113 and 123 Proposal to amend the formula for the dirt mixture used in testing to address an error introduced by Supplement 9 to the 01 series of amendments to UN R45 where the specified quantity of "2 &plusmn; 1 parts by weight" of surfactant results in invalid testing. The correct specification should be "2 &plusmn; 1 drops" of surfactant. While GTB notes that the specification should eventually be incorporated differently under the pending simplification of lighting regulations, the organization strongly urges amending UN R45 as quickly as possible.
7. (o) Regulation No. 112 (Headlamps emitting an asymmetrical passing-beam)
GRE/2016/14 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 19, 45, 98, 112, 113 and 123 Proposal to amend the formula for the dirt mixture used in testing to address an error introduced by Supplement 9 to the 01 series of amendments to UN R45 where the specified quantity of "2 &plusmn; 1 parts by weight" of surfactant results in invalid testing.

GRE/2016/18 | Proposal for Supplement 7 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.
7. (p) Regulation No. 113 (Headlamps emitting a symmetrical passing-beam)
GRE/2016/14 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 19, 45, 98, 112, 113 and 123 Proposal to amend the formula for the dirt mixture used in testing to address an error introduced by Supplement 9 to the 01 series of amendments to UN R45 where the specified quantity of "2 &plusmn; 1 parts by weight" of surfactant results in invalid testing. The correct specification should be "2 &plusmn; 1 drops" of surfactant. While GTB notes that the specification should eventually be incorporated differently under the pending simplification of lighting regulations, the organization strongly urges amending UN R45 as quickly as possible.
7. (q) Regulation No. 119 (Cornering lamps)
GRE/2016/13 | Proposal for collective amendments to Regulations No. 7, 23, 38, 77, 91, and 119 Proposal to refine the requirements for lamps equipped with several light sources, including in systems fitted with an operating tell-tale that indicates the failure of any one of these light sources. In the case of failure of any one light source in a single lamp containing more than one light source, either the light intensity must comply with the minimum intensity required in the table of standard light distribution in space or, for lamps used in systems where a tell-tale indicates the failure of any one of the light sources, the light intensity in the axis of reference must be at least 50 per cent of the minimum intensity required.
