(Points B 50 and left and right bottom corners of Zone D);
If the results of the tests described above do not meet the requirements, tests on the front
fog lamp shall be repeated using another standard filament lamp.
1.3. With respect to the verification of the change in vertical position of the cut-off line under the
influence of heat, the following procedure shall be applied:
One of the sampled front fog lamps shall be tested according to the procedure described in
Paragraph 2.1. of Annex 4 after being subjected three consecutive times to the cycle
described in Paragraph 2.2.2. of Annex 4.
The front fog lamp shall be considered as acceptable if Δr does not exceed 3.0 mrad.
If this value exceeds 3.0 mrad but is not more than 4.0 mrad, a second front fog lamp shall
be subjected to the test after which the mean of the absolute values recorded on both
samples shall not exceed 3.0 mrad.
1.4. The chromaticity coordinates shall be complied with when the front fog lamp is equipped
with a filament lamp set to Standard A colour temperature.
The photometric performance of a front fog lamp emitting a selective yellow light when
equipped with a colourless filament lamp shall be the values contained in this Regulation
multiplied by 0.84.
2. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR VERIFICATION OF CONFORMITY BY THE
MANUFACTURER
For each type of front fog lamp the holder of the approval mark shall carry out at least the
following tests, at appropriate intervals. The tests shall be carried out in accordance with
the provisions of this Regulation.
If any sampling shows non-conformity with regard to the type of test concerned, further
samples shall be taken and tested. The manufacturer shall take steps to ensure the
conformity of the production concerned.

ANNEX 7
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR SAMPLING BY AN INSPECTOR
1. GENERAL
1.1. The conformity requirements shall be considered satisfied from a mechanical and a
geometric standpoint, in accordance with the requirements of this Regulation, if any, if the
differences do not exceed inevitable manufacturing deviations.
1.2. With respect to photometric performance, the conformity of mass-produced front fog lamps
shall not be contested if, when testing photometric performances of any front fog lamp
chosen at random and according to Paragraph 6.3. of this Regulation, no measured value
deviates unfavourably by more than 20% from the values prescribed in this Regulation
(Points B 50 and left and right bottom corners of Zone D).
1.2.1. If the results of the tests described above do not meet the requirements, tests on the front
fog lamp shall be repeated using another standard filament lamp.
1.2.2. Front fog lamps with apparent defects are disregarded.
1.3. The chromaticity coordinates shall be complied with when the front fog lamp is equipped
with a filament lamp set to Standard A colour temperature.
The photometric performance of a front fog lamp emitting selective yellow light when
equipped with a colourless filament lamp shall be multiplied by 0.84.
2. FIRST SAMPLING
In the first sampling four front fog lamps are selected at random. The first sample of two is
marked A, the second sample of two is marked B.
2.1. The Conformity is not Contested
2.1.1. Following the sampling procedure shown in Figure 1 of this Annex the conformity of
mass-produced front fog lamps shall not be contested if the deviation of the measured
values of the front fog lamps in the unfavourable directions are:
2.1.1.1. sample A
2.1.1.2. sample B
A1: one front fog lamp 0%
one front fog lamp not more than 20%
A2:
both front fog lamps
more than
0%
but
not more than
20%
go to sample B
B1: both front fog lamps 0%

3. REPEATED SAMPLING
In the cases of A3, B2, B3 a repeated sampling, third sample C of two front fog lamps and
fourth sample D of two front fog lamps, selected from stock manufactured after alignment, is
necessary within two months time after the notification.
3.1. The Conformity is not Contested
3.1.1. Following the sampling procedure shown in Figure 1 of this Annex the conformity of
mass-produced front fog lamps shall not be contested if the deviations of the measured
values of the front fog lamps are:
3.1.1.1. sample C
3.1.1.2. sample D
C1: one front fog lamp 0%
one front fog lamp not more than 20%
C2:
both front fog lamps
more than
0%
but
not more than
20%
go to sample D
D1: in the case of C2
both front fog lamps 0%
3.2. The Conformity is Contested
3.2.1. Following the sampling procedure shown in Figure 1 of this Annex the conformity of
mass-produced front fog lamps shall be contested and the manufacturer requested to make
his production meet the requirements (alignment) if the deviations of the measured values of
the front fog lamps are:
sample D
D2:
in the case of C2
one front fog lamp
more than
0%
but
not more than
20%
one front fog lamp
not more than
20%
3.3. Approval Withdrawn
3.3.1. sample C
Conformity shall be contested and Paragraph 12 applied if, following the sampling
procedure in Figure 1 of this Annex, the deviations of the measured values of the front fog
lamps are:
C3:
one front fog lamp
not more than
20%
one front fog lamp
more than
20%
C4: both front fog lamps more than 20%
