28. On behalf of the Special Interest Group for DRL of L-category vehicles, the expert from Japan presented a revised proposal that introduced a new requirement for automatic switching from DRL to the headlamp for L3 category in UN Regulation No. 53 as well as a corresponding amendment to the new LSD UN Regulation (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/50). The expert from India proposed to delete references to “passing beam” (GRE-80-25). The experts of Germany, Netherlands, UK and EC were not in favour of deleting “passing beam” and supported the original proposal. GRE adopted the proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2019 sessions as draft 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53 and draft Supplement 1 to the original LSD UN Regulation, subject to the following amendments:

Paragraphs 5.11.1.1., 5.11.1.2. and Annex 7 (twice), replace “headlamp [(passing beam)]” with “passing beam”.

Paragraphs 11.8. and 11.10., remove square brackets around 2023.

29. The expert from India proposed making optional the fitment of front position lamps, due to the introduction of auto headlamp switching, and alternatively DRL provisions in UN Regulation No. 53 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/47 and GRE-80-26). The experts of Finland, Germany and UK expressed doubts. The Chair concluded that there was not enough support for the proposal and proposed to revert to this issue at the next session. He also invited the expert from India to try to convince the experts in doubt before the next session.

30. The expert from IMMA proposed to clarify the use of direction indicators to show the status of the device for protection of a vehicle against unauthorised use (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/45). GRE adopted the proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2019 sessions as draft Supplement 3 to the 02 series and draft Supplement 21 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53.

31. The expert from IMMA presented a revised proposal on exterior courtesy lamps (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/46). GRE adopted the proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their March 2019 sessions as draft Supplement 3 to the 02 series and draft Supplement 21 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53, subject to the following modification:

New paragraph 6.15.19.3., second indent, delete “…one or more of…”.

12. The experts from IWG SLR and IMMA proposed to amend the inboard visibility angle for rear position lamps in pairs in the new LSD UN Regulation (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/33 and GRE-80-32). GRE adopted the proposal and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2018 sessions as draft Supplement 1 to the original LSD UN Regulation. GRE also recalled that this modification should be submitted together with the corresponding proposal to amend UN Regulation No. 53 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/28), which had been agreed upon at the previous session, and requested the secretariat to submit it to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2019 sessions as draft Supplement 4 to the 02 series and draft Supplement 22 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53.

15. The expert from IMMA proposed amended definitions for UN Regulation No. 53 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/35 and GRE-80-05). GRE adopted the proposals and requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2019 sessions as draft Supplement 4 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53.

18. To introduce requirements for LED substitute light sources in the installation UN Regulations, the expert from Germany presented collective amendments to UN Regulations Nos. 48, 53, 74 and 86 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2018/41). The expert from OICA submitted comments (GRE-80-19). GRE adopted the proposals unamended and requested the secretariat to submit them to WP.29 and AC.1 for consideration at their June 2019 sessions as draft Supplement 12 to the 06 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 48, draft Supplement 4 to the 02 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53, draft Supplement 11 to the 01 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 74 and draft Supplement 2 to the 01 series of amendments of UN Regulation No. 86.
