08 Feb 2017 World Forum Informal Documents International Whole Vehicle Type Approval System (IWVTA) International Whole Vehicle Type Approval UN Regulation No. 0 on uniform provisions concerning the International Whole Vehicle Type Approval Illumination of rear-registration plates of motor vehicles and their trailers Rear Plate Lighting Uniform provisions for the approval of devices for the illumination of rear registration plates of motor vehicles (except motor cycles)and their trailers Direction Indicators Direction Indicators Uniform provisions concerning the approval of direction indicators for power-driven vehicles and their trailers Position, Stop and End-outline Lamps Position, stop and end-outline lamps Uniform Provisions Concerncing the Approval of Front and Rear Position (Side) Lamps, Stop-Lamps and End-Outline Marker Lamps for Motor Vehicles (Except Motor Cycles)and their Trailers Front Fog Lamps Front Fog Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Power-driven Vehicle Front Fog Lamps Reversing Lights Reversing Lights Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Reversing and Manoeuvring Lamps for Power-driven Vehicles and their Trailers Rear Fog Lamps Rear Fog Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Rear Fog Lamps for Power-driven Vehicles and their Trailers Installation of Lighting and Lighting-Signalling Equipment Installation of Lighting Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Vehicles with regard to the Installation of Lighting and Light-signalling Devices Position and Indicator Lamps for Motorcycles Motorcycle Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Front Position Lamps, Rear Position Lamps, Stop Lamps, Direction Indicators and Rear-Registration Plate Illuminating Devices for Vehicles of Category L Parking Lamps Parking Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Parking Lamps for Power-driven Vehicles Daytime Running Lamps Daytime Running Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Daytime Running Lamps for Power-driven Vehicles Side-Marker Lamps Side-Marker Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Side-Marker Lamps for Motor Vehicles and their Trailers 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 Headlamps Emitting an Asymmetrical Passing Beam Asymmetrical Beam Headlamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Motor Vehicle Headlamps Emitting an Asymmetrical Passing Beam or a Driving Beam or Both and Equipped with Filament Lamps and/or Light-Emitting Diode (LED) Modules Symmetrical Beam Headlamps of Filament, Gas-discharge, or LED Type Symmetrical Headlamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Motor Vehicle Headlamps Emitting a Symmetrical Passing Beam or a Driving Beam or Both and Equipped with Filament, Gas-discharge light sources or LED Modules Cornering Lamps Cornering Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Cornering Lamps for Power-driven Vehicles Adaptive Front-lighting Systems Adaptive Front-lighting Systems Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Adaptive Front-lighting Systems (AFS) for Motor Vehicles Simplification of Lighting Regulations SLR To be determined. Proposals for amendments to Regulations Nos. 4, 6, 7, 19, 23, 38, 48, 50, 77, 87, 91, 98, 112, 113, 119, 123 to clarify requirements for light sources in lighting and light-signalling Regulations listed in Annex 4 to UN Regulation No. 0. The proposed UN R0 on whole vehicle type approval requires submission of approval certificates for components and systems. Vehicle manufacturers work directly with UN R48 approvals, but lamp and device approvals are generally handled by lighting suppliers. UN R48 includes provisions for listing approvals of lighting units, but not for approvals of light sources (presently UN R37, R99, and R128). This set of proposed amendments introduces provisions for light-source approvals under the device regulations. WP.29-171-0003
WP.29-171-04
Proposal to amend the proposal for Supplement 7 to the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 113 (EU)
08 Feb 2017 World Forum Informal Documents Symmetrical Beam Headlamps of Filament, Gas-discharge, or LED Type Symmetrical Headlamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Motor Vehicle Headlamps Emitting a Symmetrical Passing Beam or a Driving Beam or Both and Equipped with Filament, Gas-discharge light sources or LED Modules Proposal to remove the amendment to the heat test cycle related to the movement of the passing beam proposed in the draft supplement (document WP.29/2017/39). The EU views the proposed test cycle changes (based on document GRE/2016/32) as a substantial revision of the procedure amounting to a new requirement. Therefore, the EU will only agree to the proposed Supplement 7 to the 01 series if the requirement concerning the heat test cycle is removed from the proposal WP.29/2017/39. WP.29-171-0004
