4. Simplification of lighting and light-signalling Regulations
GRE-75-06 | Status of pending GRE proposals with regard to the simplification of lighting regulations
GRE/2016/30 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 4, 6, 7, 23, 38, 50, 77, 87, 91 and 119 This proposal removes the requirement to indicate the rated wattage in the marking of lamps equipped with electronic light source control gear and/or non-replaceable light sources and/or light source module(s). From an electronic point of view, the information of the wattage brings no benefit and is confusing if the same module is used in different systems and at different wattages.
GRE/2016/32 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123 This collective amendment on the stability of photometric performance during the heat test, with particular reference to the movement of the cut-off line, clarifies the test cycle and also aligns the requirements of Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123. In addition to resolving problems of interpretation presented by the current text, this collective amendment will assist the Informal Working Group "Simplification of Lighting and Light-Signalling Regulations" in drafting the new simplified Regulations which is underway.
GRE/2016/25 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 98, 112 and 123 Supplement 3 to the 01 series of amendments to UN R 98, 112, and 123 deleted the measurement point HV from the photometric requirement table. The HV measurement point, however, remains a requirement for checking photometric stability. This proposal removes the HV measurement point from the photometric stability requirements for the passing beam. The HV measurement point remains a valid for the driving beam.
GRE/2016/31 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 7, 23, 38, 48, 77, 91 and 119 The current requirements on light source failure in lamps equipped with multiple light sources differ across UN Regulations. GTB submitted and then withdrew a proposal to align these requirements (GRE/2016/13). This updated proposal improves upon the text of the previous 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.
GRE/2016/34 | Proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123 This collective amendment extends the usage of LED light sources of UN R128 to front lighting Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123 (as presented in the previous session document GRE-75-14). The proposal would allow for the use of regulated replaceable LED light sources according to Regulation No. 128 in all applications where the use of LED modules is already permitted.
GRE-76-07 | Correction to document GRE/2016/31 Correction to the proposal for a collective amendment to Regulations Nos. 7, 23, 38, 48, 77, 91 and 119. Since the cornering lamp projects a beam to the left and right of the reference axis, it is not relevant to check the photometric values in the reference axis (HV). Therefore, the test point at 2.5°D, 45°L or R shall be used.
GRE-76-13 | Upcoming changes to Regulation No. 128 related to LED Light Sources for Forward Lighting Applications The collective amendment presented in GRE/2016/34 extends the usage of LED light sources of UN R128 to front lighting Regulations Nos. 19, 98, 112, 113 and 123. The introduction of LED light source categories under UN R128 for forward lighting applications (front fog, low beam, high beam, AFS) is planned for 2017. This presentation explains the plans, timeline, and dependencies GTB proposes to address through the collective amendment, especially within the context of the simplification of lighting regulations program.
GRE-76-22/Rev.1 | Revision of document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/31 Revised proposal (removing the section on UN R48 and incorporating corrections noted in document GRE-76-07) 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. This collective amendment addresses Regulations Nos. 7, 23, 38, 77, 91 and 119. The proposals concerning UN R48 will be resubmitted for consideration during the 77th GRE session.

This proposal is a revised version of document GRE/2013/55 discussed during the October 2013 GRE session.
GRE/2014/3 | Proposal for Collective amendments to Regulations Nos. 4, 6, 7, 19, 23, 38, 45, 50, 65, 77, 87, 91, 98, 104, 112, 113, 119 and 123 Text prepared by the International Automotive Lighting and Light Signalling Expert Group (GTB) to clarify the definition of "type", with regard to manufacturer, trade names and marks and to introduce editorial improvements to the requirements for markings. Although documents GRE/2013/45 and GRE-70-02 were adopted by GRE at its last (70th) session, this proposal consolidates the amendments and offers editorial improvements to the provisions concerning markings in Regulations Nos. 19, 23, 38, 65 and 119. These editorial improvements aim to clarify that the devices, and not only the samples, shall bear the trade name or mark and align the requirements with the other correctly worded regulations to avoid misunderstanding.
GRE/2015/7 | Proposal for Supplement 27 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 Proposal to correct an error in Supplement 24 to the 01 series of amendments (document WP.29/2013/14 adopted by the Forum during its March 2013 session). During the compilation of the collective amendment (GRE-68-02-Rev.2), necessary changes to Regulation No. 6 were overlooked. This amendment proposes to align the treatment of categories 1, 1a and 1b with other categories and devices.
GRE/2015/16 | Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112 Correction of errors found in the references to “left-hand traffic” and “right-hand traffic” in the text and associated diagrams of Annex 2 of the regulation.
GRE/2015/23 | Proposal for a corrigendum to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112 Proposal to correct an inconsistency between the regulation text and Figure B of Annex 3.
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/2016/14 | 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 ± 1 parts by weight" of surfactant results in invalid testing. The correct specification should be "2 ± 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.
GRE/75 | Report of the GRE on its 75th session
5. Regulations Nos. 37 (Filament lamps), 99 (Gas discharge light sources) and 128 (Light emitting diodes light sources)
GRE/2016/26 | Proposal for Supplement 13 to the original series of amendments to Regulation No. 99 Proposal to add a new paragraph 3.6.2.4. to UN R99 in order to clarify how the run-up of dual-level high-intensity discharge (HID) light sources, as e.g. D9S, should be tested during type approval. In addition, the proposal renumbers the part of 3.6.2.2. that applies to gas-discharge light sources containing black stripes as 3.6.2.3. to make the distinction with gas-discharge light sources not containing black stripes.
6. Regulation No. 48 (Installation of lighting and light-signalling devices)
6. (a) Proposals for amendments to the 05 and 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48
WP.29/2015/87 | Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 97 Proposal as approved by the GRSG to delete provisions regarding the optical display of the status of the vehicle alarm system outside the passenger compartment in order to avoid driver distraction by and/or confusion of such exterior lighting with primary lighting and signaling equipment required under UN R48.
WP.29/2015/91 | Proposal for Supplement 5 to Regulation No. 116 Proposal as approved by the GRSG to delete provisions regarding the optical display of the status of the vehicle alarm system outside the passenger compartment in order to avoid driver distraction by and/or confusion of such exterior lighting with primary lighting and signaling equipment required under UN R48.
GRE/2016/24 | Proposal for Supplement 11 to the 05 series of amendments and Supplement 9 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 Proposal to correct the terminology in paragraph 5.7.2.1. for consistency across all requirements and to clarify the language in paragraphs 6.2.9., 6.3.6.1.2.1. and 6.3.6.1.2.2. to promote the correct application of the 2,000-lumen limit.
GRE/2016/33 | Proposal for Supplement 18 to the 04 series, Supplement 11 to the 05 series and Supplement 9 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 Proposal to amend Regulation No. 48 following the outcome of the 167th session of the World Forum where amendments to Regulations Nos. 97 and 116 on the status indicators for Vehicle Alarm System (VAS), Alarm System (AS) and immobilizer were adopted (WP.29/2015/87 and WP.29/2015/91). The proposal aims at defining and specifying the operation of the external status indicator for VAS, AS and the immobilizer.
GRE/2016/33/Corr.1 | Proposal for Supplement 18 to the 04 series, Supplement 11 to the 05 series and Supplement 9 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 Correction of the proposal to amend Regulation No. 48 following the outcome of the 167th session of the World Forum where amendments to Regulations Nos. 97 and 116 on the status indicators for Vehicle Alarm System (VAS), Alarm System (AS) and immobilizer were adopted (WP.29/2015/87 and WP.29/2015/91). The proposal aims at defining and specifying the operation of the external status indicator for VAS, AS and the immobilizer.
GRE-76-17 | Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/33 Proposal to clarify that only external status indicators as referenced in UN R97 and R116 are addressed under the proposal to define such external indicators and introduce performance specifications under UN R48 for Vehicle Alarm Systems (VAS), Alarm Systems (AS) and immobilizers (draft Supplement 18 to the 04 series, Supplement 11 to the 05 series and Supplement 9 to the 06 series of amendments to UN R48).
GRE-76-12 | Rear registration plates with LED Advances in LED lighting raise the prospects for incorporation of lighting into rear registration plates. In 2004, in response to a proposal for the regulation of such plates under UN R48, GRE determined that illuminated plates were not lamps and therefore were outside the scope of UN R48. The Spanish delegation would like to submit this issue again for the consideration of GRE members in order to have a coordinated and common view on this subject.
6. (b) Other proposals for amendments to Regulation No. 48

7. Other Regulations
7. (a) Regulation No. 6 (Direction indicators)
GRE/2016/20 | Proposal for Supplement 27 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 and Supplement 19 to the original series of amendments to Regulation No. 50 Pursuant to interpretation issues raised by Germany at the seventy-fifth session of GRE, a Task Force on Sequential Activaton was established to clarify the meaning of the "one continuous line" requirement in paragraph 5.6.<notextile>(c)</notextile> of Regulation No. 6. The task force proposes to clarify the type definition and reduce the need for dividing sequential direction indicators into different types. This proposal revises the text to be more technology-neutral, removing specifications on how light sources are activated to focus on the visual performance as sequential lighting. The amendment of sub-paragraph 5.6.<notextile>(c)</notextile> of UN R6 clarifies what kind of vertical movement is not allowed in the sequential direction indicators, proposing a new new term "vertical oscillations" instead of the current wording "repeating alternation in the vertical direction". The meaning is that not more than one change of direction upwards or downwards along the vertical axis is possible. The "continuous signal" is also defined in sub-paragraph 5.6.<notextile>(c)</notextile> of Regulation No. 6. The allowed distance between adjacent or tangential distinct parts has yet to be defined. TF-SA could not find a consensus about the distance (in mm) before the deadline for submitting official working documents to the seventy-sixth session of GRE. Thus, the value is still marked between square brackets, leaving the final decision to GRE. Before the seventy-sixth session of GRE, TF-SA experts are going to investigate what the suitable value would be. The idea of TF-SA is that the sequential direction indicator should produce a visually clear and continuous signal when viewed by an observer from a 10 m distance. The same amendments as in paragraph 5.6. of the UN R6 are also proposed to paragraph 6.8. of Regulation No. 50 for L-category vehicles. Unlike paragraph 1.3. of Regulation No. 6, paragraph 2.2. of Regulation No. 50 does not define the sequential activation as a type differentiation criterion. Therefore, amendments to paragraph 2.2. of Regulation No. 50 are not necessary.
GRE/2016/21 | Proposal for Supplement 27 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 Paragraph 6.5.3. of UN R48 prescribes the use of specific categories of front direction indicators in relation to their distance from the dipped beam headlamp or front fog lamp. However, the text allows categories 1a and 1b to be used at any distance greater than the minimum prescribed for each of them. The present text of UN R6, Annex 1, however, only allows a specific category to be used in the specific range of distance prescribed. Therefore, this proposal deletes the specific requirements in UN R6 and introduces a direct reference to the requirements in UN R48. This proposal effectively eliminates the need for a lower maximum value for the Category 1 front direction indicator than that of the other categories. Therefore, it is proposed to align the maximum luminous intensity value of Category 1 to that of Categories 1a and 1b.
GRE-76-10 | Additional justification to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/20 The justification for changes to sub-paragraphs 5.6.(e) of Regulation No. 6 and 6.8.(e) of Regulation No. 50 is missing from document GRE/2016/20. The Task Force on Sequential Activation of direction indicators wishes to note that the paragraphs were proposed by GTB and accepted by the Task Force to clarify the text without changing the current technical requirements.
GRE-76-09 | Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/20 Proposal to amend the draft text concerning sequential activation of direction indicators. The amendments aim to ensure reasonable uniformity across direction indicators in order to reduce the risk of misinterpretation by other road users. The modifications proposed by the France replace the terms "apparent surface" and "continuous" with specific objective criteria.
GRE-76-05 | Comments on document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/21 India comments on the proposal to enable the approval of sequential activation of light sources of direction indicators lamps for motorcycles.
GRE-76-16 | Proposal for amendments to ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2016/20 Proposal for changes to the draft Supplement 27 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 and Supplement 19 to the original series of amendments to Regulation No. 50
7. (b) Regulation No. 7 (Position, stop and end-outline lamps)
GRE/2016/22 | Proposal for Supplement 26 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7 Proposal to align the text of paragraph 6.1.6. with the definition of “single lamp” introduced by document ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2014/6 (Proposal for Supplement 14 to the 04 Series of amendments, Supplement 7 to the 05 Series of amendments and Supplement 5 to the 06 Series of amendments of Regulation No. 48). The reference to paragraph 4.2.2.6. in the header of the table in paragraph 6.1. is also corrected.
GRE/2016/23 | Proposal for Supplement 26 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7 Supplement 11 to the 02 series of amendments to Regulation No. 7 introduced a new paragraph "0. SCOPE" that included vehicles of category “L”. This proposal corrects the title of the Regulation, removing the exception of motor cycles.
7. (c) Regulation No. 10 (Electromagnetic compatibility)
GRE-76-18 | Status report of the Task Force on Electromagnetic Compatibility
7. (d) Regulation No. 50 (Position, stop, direction indicators lamps for mopeds and motorcycles)

GRE-76-04/Rev.1 | Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112 Proposal to update document GRE/2016/34. At the 73rd GRE session, France proposed to delete a design restrictive requirement (GRE/2015/22 and GRE-73-26). This proposal received comments from Germany and the Netherlands. Poland suggested a different approach on this issue (GRE-73-21). The Chair invited France, Germany, Netherlands, Poland, CLEPA and IEC to prepare a revised proposal for the next session. Based upon the approach proposed in GRE/2015/22 and GRE-73-26, GTB has investigated the specification of minimum levels of flux projected in critical zones of the passing beam distribution. This approach offers a technology-neutral performance based requirement. The result of the GTB study is to propose minimum projected flux requirements in two zones: a) 15°D-1°U/30°L-30°R to ensure overall adequate illumination of the road and b) 3.5°D-1°U/30°L-30°R to ensure sufficient range.
7. (g) Regulation No. 119 (Cornering lamps)
GRE/2016/27 | Proposal for Supplement 5 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 119 The content of paragraph 7.5. was moved to Annex 3, paragraph 3.3. by supplement 4 to the 01 series of Regulation No. 119. The original content of paragraph 7.5. should have been deleted as part of the amendment, but this was overlooked. This amendment is necessary to remove the current conflict between the content of Annex 3, paragraph 3.3. and paragraph 7.5 in the main text.
7. (h) Regulation No. 123 (Adaptive front-lighting systems (AFS))
GRE/2016/29 | Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 123 When the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 123 was introduced to convert the photometric requirements from illuminance E (lux) to luminous intensities I (cd), some changes from E<sub>max</sub> to I<sub>max</sub> were overlooked. This amendment introduces the necessary corrections. The proposal also amends Annex 3, Table 2 to allow sub-classes of Class C to lower the cut-off position to give the opportunity to adapt to foggy weather conditions and thus avoid glare and increase safety.
GRE/2016/28 | Proposal for Supplement 8 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 123 During its 69th session, GRE adopted proposals to update the Conformity of Production (CoP) procedures for lighting and light-signalling devices, but decided to await the work of a GTB task force on the simplification of CoP provisions for AFS before addressing UN R123. This proposal amends the CoP procedures in line with those agreed for UN R112 (document GRE/2013/37) to create simplified photometric CoP tables for each class (C, V, W, E, R, RADB) with its applicable 0/20/30 per cent limits. Furthermore, the task force clarified which tests are necessary for CoP testing and which are necessary only for type approval testing. The methods and requirements for the "initial" type approval remained unchanged. An overview of the main AFS characteristics can be found in documents GRE-48-28 and GRE-48-30.

8. Pending amendment proposals
GRE/73 | Report of the GRE on its 73rd session
GRE/2015/7 | Proposal for Supplement 27 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 Proposal to correct an error in Supplement 24 to the 01 series of amendments (document WP.29/2013/14 adopted by the Forum during its March 2013 session). During the compilation of the collective amendment (GRE-68-02-Rev.2), necessary changes to Regulation No. 6 were overlooked. This amendment proposes to align the treatment of categories 1, 1a and 1b with other categories and devices.
GRE/2015/16 | Proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112 Correction of errors found in the references to “left-hand traffic” and “right-hand traffic” in the text and associated diagrams of Annex 2 of the regulation.
GRE/2015/23 | Proposal for a corrigendum to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 112 Proposal to correct an inconsistency between the regulation text and Figure B of Annex 3.
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/2016/14 | 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.
