ADOPTED AT THE 171 SESSION – MARCH 2017
PROVISIONAL DATE OF ENTRY INTO FORCE: OCTOBER 10, 2017

Paragraph 3.5.3., amend to read:
"3.5.3. The marking of the rated voltage or range of voltage."
Paragraph 5., amend to read:
"5. General Specifications
5.1. …"
The requirements contained in Sections 5. "General Specifications" and 6. "Individual
Specifications" and in the Annexes referenced in the said sections of Regulations Nos. 48,
53 or 86, and their series of amendments in force at the time of application for the lamp type
approval shall apply to this Regulation.
The requirements pertinent to each lamp and to the category/ies of vehicle on which the
lamp is intended to be installed shall be applied, where its verification at the moment of lamp
type approval is feasible.
Insert a new Paragraph 5.6., to read:
"5.6. In the case of non-replaceable filament lamp(s) or light source module(s) equipped with
non-replaceable filament lamp(s), the applicant shall annex to the type approval
documentation a report (by the light source manufacturer indicated in the type approval
documentation), acceptable to the Authority responsible for type approval, that
demonstrates compliance of these non-replaceable filament lamp(s) with the requirements
as specified in Paragraph 4.11. of IEC 60809, Edition 3."
Paragraph 6.4., amend to read:
"6.4. In the case of a single lamp containing more than one light source when all light sources are
illuminated the maximum intensities shall not be exceeded."
Insert a new Paragraph 6.5., to read:
"6.5. Failure of a Single Lamp Containing more than One Light Source:
6.5.1. In a single lamp containing more than one light source, a group of light sources, wired so
that the failure of any one of them causes all of them to stop emitting light, shall be
considered to be one light source.
6.5.2. In case of failure of any one light source in a single lamp containing more than one light
source, at least one of the following provisions shall apply:
(a)
The light intensity complies with the minimum intensity required in the table of
standard light distribution in space as shown in Annex 3, or
(b) A signal for activation of a tell-tale indicating failure, as indicated in Paragraph 6.11.8.
of Regulation No. 48, is produced, provided that the luminous intensity in the axis of
reference is at least 50% of the minimum intensity required. In this case, a note in the
communication form states that the lamp is only for use on a vehicle fitted with a
tell-tale indicating failure."

Annex 4,
Paragraphs 1.2. to 1.3., amend to read:
"1.2. With respect to photometric performances, the conformity of mass-produced lamps shall not
be contested if, when testing according to Paragraph 7. of this Regulation, the photometric
performances as set forth in Paragraph 6. of this Regulation of any lamp chosen at random
and equipped with a standard light source, or when the lamps are equipped with
non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps or other), and when all measurements are
made at 6.75V, 13.5V or 28.0V respectively:
1.2.1. No measured value deviates unfavourably by more than 20% from the values prescribed in
this Regulation.
1.2.2. In the case of a direction indicator equipped with a replaceable light source, if results of the
test described above do not meet the requirements, tests shall be repeated using another
standard light source.
1.3. With respect to colorimetric performance, the requirements set out in Paragraph 9. of this
Regulation shall be complied with."
Insert a new Paragraph 1.4., to read:
"1.4. In the case of non-replaceable filament lamp(s) or light source module(s) equipped with
non-replaceable filament lamps, at any conformity of production check:
1.4.1. The holder of the approval mark shall demonstrate the use in normal production and show
the identification of the non-replaceable filament lamp(s) as indicated in the type approval
documentation;
1.4.2. In the case where doubt exists in respect to compliance of the non-replaceable filament
lamp(s) with lifetime requirements and/or, in the case of colour coated filament lamps, with
colour endurance requirements, as specified in Paragraph 4.11. of IEC 60809, Edition 3,
conformity shall be checked (by the light source manufacturer indicated in the type approval
documentation) as specified in Paragraph 4.11. of IEC 60809, Edition 3."

3. First Repeated Sampling
A sample of four lamps is selected at random from stock manufactured after alignment.
The first sample of two is marked C, the second sample of two is marked D.
3.1. The conformity of mass-produced rear fog lamps shall not be contested if the deviation of
any specimen of samples C and D (all four lamps) is not more than 20%.
In the case, that the deviation of both lamps of sample C is not more than 0%, the
measurement can be closed.
3.2. The conformity of mass-produced rear fog lamps shall be contested if the deviation of at
least:
3.2.1. One specimen of sample C or D is more than 20% but the deviation of all specimen of these
samples is not more than 30%.
The manufacturer shall be requested again to bring his production in line with the
requirements (alignment).
A second repeated sampling according to Paragraph 4. below shall be carried out within two
months' time after the notification. The samples C and D shall be retained by the Technical
Service until the entire Conformity of Production process is finished.
3.2.2. One specimen of sample C or D is more than 30%.
In this case the approval shall be withdrawn and Paragraph 5. below shall be applied.
4. Second Repeated Sampling
A sample of four lamps is selected at random from stock manufactured after alignment.
The first sample of two is marked E, the second sample of two is marked F.
4.1. The conformity of mass-produced rear fog lamps shall not be contested if the deviation of
any specimen of samples E and F (all four lamps) is not more than 20%.
In the case, that the deviation of both lamps of sample E is not more than 0%, the
measurement can be closed.
4.2. The conformity of mass-produced rear fog lamps shall be contested if the deviation of at
least one specimen of sample E or F is more than 20%.
In this case the approval shall be withdrawn and Paragraph 5. below shall be applied.
5. Approval Withdrawn
Approval shall be withdrawn according to Paragraph 11. of this Regulation."
