Proposal to introduce requirements for the use of light-emitting diode substitute light sources in the new Regulation on Light-Signalling Devices (GTB)
16 Aug 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Light-Signalling Devices (LSD) Light-Signalling Devices UN Regulation on uniform provisions concerning the approval of light-signalling devices (lamps) for power-driven vehicles and their trailers Proposal to introduce the following changes into the draft new Regulation on light-signalling devices:<ol><li>Use of LED substitute light source(s) is allowed and does not constitute a change of the lamp type. However, lamp performances shall be tested during type approval also with the LED substitute light source. Approval of the lamp using filament light source(s) is a prerequisite for approval of the lamp using LED substitute light source(s).</li><li>COP testing of the lamp is required with an (etalon) filament light source only, because the LED substitute is the counterpart light source of the filament light source, resulting in equivalent photometrical lamp performance. The quality i.e. the equivalence to the filament light source, is controlled in R128.</li><li>Use of LED substitute light sources is at the discretion of the applicant, who shall declare this use, if any, to the Approval Authorities at the time of application for the first lamp approval or subsequent extension of approval issued for the version using the LED substitute light source.</li><li>The use of LED substitute light source(s) in a certain lamp type shall be indicated on the lamp by marking of the LED substitute light source category, in addition to the marking of the filament light source of which the LED substitute light source is the counterpart.</li><li>This marking on the lamp will be used for checking the allowance for use of lamps with LED substitute light sources in application of the Regulation on lamps installation on vehicle.</li><li>In case a lamp with colour filter(s) is approved for using LED substitute light source(s), this lamp shall be marked “G” to indicate that this lamp shall be equipped with LED substitute light source(s) marked “G” for colour and luminous intensity quality reasons.</li><li>The indication of both the filament light source and of its LED counterpart light source, if any, shall be explicitly provided in the communication form.</li></ol> GRE/2017/0014

Proposal for amendment 1 to the original version of the Consolidated Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (GTB)
16 Aug 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (RE 5) RE 5: Resolution on light sources Light-Emitting Diode Light Sources LED Light Sources Uniform provisions concerning the approval of light emitting diode (LED) light sources for use in approved lamp units on power-driven vehicles and their trailers Proposal to introduce a new light emitting diode (LED) forward lighting light source category L1/6. The proposal is part of a package which also includes amendments to Regulation No. 128. 2. GTB proposes one category L1/6 with “maximum test temperature” 65 °C. The definition of the maximum test temperature is necessary to ensure interchangeability between approved light sources from different manufacturers. A separate (unique) light source category is specified for every "maximum test temperature". The choice of installation of a light source with a given maximum test temperature is based on the application in the vehicle and determined by due diligence of the car maker and set maker, in the same way as is now the case with LED modules.

Proposal for amendment 1 to the original version of the Consolidated Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (GTB)
17 Aug 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (RE 5) RE 5: Resolution on light sources With the publication of Revision 8 of Regulation No. 37 and the subsequent adoption of the Consolidated Resolution on the common specification of light source categories (R.E.5) (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2016/111), light source experts and users of light source Regulations have made the correct linkages between the Resolution and third party documents. This proposal corrects a number of minor editorial errors in sheets of filament light sources that were discovered while making such linkages. The proposal further includes a number of customary administrative updates of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) cap sheet numbers in the IEC cap sheet references. GRE/2017/0018

Proposal for Supplement 46 to the 03 series of amendments to Regulation No. 37 (GTB)
17 Aug 2017 Working Party Formal Documents Filament Lamps Filament Lamps Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Filament Lamps for Use in Approved Lamp Units of Power-driven Vehicles and of their Trailers Proposal to correct a reference to standard IEC (pursuant to a change in paragraph numbering of the IEC standard) and to align UN R37 with UN R48 and UN R128 with regard to the use of the term "chromaticity area". The wording "required tolerance area" in case of colour is changed to "required chromaticity area" to align with Regulation No. 48. This proposal was initiated by a proposal to amend Regulation No. 128 aimed at avoiding confusion with other tolerance areas. GRE/2017/0019

Although GRE agreed to delete this and related paragraphs during its 77th session (see para. 19 and Annex II of the 77th session report), the Task Force on Headlamp Switching decided upon further review to retain the possibility to switch ON DRLs in conjunction with at least the rear position lamps without the need for the position lamps tell-tale in that case.

Proposal for Supplement 11 to the 06 series of amendments to Regulation No. 48 (GTB)
18 Aug 2017 Working Party Formal Documents 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 Proposal to enable approval of side-marker and position lamps with regard to switching requirements when mutually incorporated. Vehicles include designs where lamps wrap around vehicle corners. In cases where optional side-marker lamps are grouped with a position lamp that is reciprocally incorporated with the direction indicator, it should be possible to switch off the side-marker lamp (as can be done with the position lamp) in order to improve conspicuity of the direction indicator.
