Documentation Discussion/Report

6. GRE took note of the progress report of the Informal Working Group Simplification of the Lighting and Light-Signalling Regulations" (IWG SLR) (GRE-83-47). GRE agreed that IWG SLR would be chaired by Mr. Derwin Rovers (Netherlands).

7. GRE provided the following guidance to IWG SLR:

  • GRE supported the proposed scientific notation for numbers (GRE-83-08);
  • For the use of the Unique Identifier (UI), GRE agreed with the IWG SLR proposal to include new information in the electronic Database for the Exchange of Type Approval documentation (DETA) and to provide access to this information to new categories of stakeholders. GRE mandated IWG SLR to bring the proposal to IWG DETA for consideration by means of a presentation;
  • GRE supported the IWG SLR view on the use of type approval numbers and approval markings for the frozen UN Regulations, i.e. either apply an old number/old marking combination or a new number/new marking combination.

13. The expert from IWG SLR proposed a correction to Annex 24 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2020/12/Rev.1) as well as re-aligning with the frozen UN Regulations Nos. 3, 27, 69, 70 and 104 (GRE-83-17). GRE adopted both proposals and requested the secretariat to submit them for consideration and vote at the March 2021 sessions of WP.29 and AC.1 as draft Supplement 3 to the original series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 150.

14. GRE took note of draft modifications to UN Regulation No. 150 that were being developed by IWG SLR under stage 2 of simplification (GRE-83-26 and GRE-83-27).
