34. The expert from India proposed making optional the fitment of front position lamps (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2019/18). The experts from France, Germany and the Netherlands were not in a position to support the proposal. The expert from India invited GRE to consider only the modification to paragraph 5.10. in ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2019/18. Following a brief exchange of views, GRE invited the expert from India to submit a separate document on the issue.

35. The expert from IMMA presented a consolidated text of the draft 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53 which had incorporated the latest modifications to the 01 and 02 series (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/GRE/2019/23 and GRE-82-16). GRE noted that these modifications had been also included in the draft 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53 submitted for consideration of WP.29 and AC.1 in November 2019 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2019/80).

36. The expert from IMMA recalled the requirements on Adaptive Driving Beam (ADB) in UN Regulation No. 48 and proposed similar provisions for amending UN Regulation No. 53 (GRE-82-13, GRE-82-18, GRE-82-46-Rev.1). Following a brief exchange of views, the Chair invited GRE experts to send their comments to IMMA with a view to preparing an official document for consideration at the next session.

37. The expert from EC recalled the draft 03 series of amendments to UN Regulation No. 53, which were submitted for consideration of WP.29 and AC.1 in November 2019 (ECE/TRANS/WP.29/2019/80) and proposed to shorten its transitional period from 1 September 2023 to 1 September 2021 (GRE-82-22). The expert from IMMA pointed out the technical challenges of implementing the 03 series of amendments and suggested that the original transitional provisions should be maintained (GRE-82-37). Following an in-depth discussion, GRE decided to keep the transitional period unchanged. At the same time, GRE agreed to scrutinize all future requests for long transitional provisions by the industry.

51. The expert from India proposed deleting the prohibition to use lighting and light-signalling devices other than those prescribed in UN Regulations Nos. 53 and 74 (GRE-82-15). Several experts disagreed with this proposal and therefore GRE did not support it.
