2.21. "Clockwise" means the direction of rotation around the axis of the part considered,
following the motion of the hands of a clock when viewed from the upper or the outer side of
the part considered ;
2.22. "Anticlockwise" has the inverse meaning;
2.23. "Combined brake" means a system of operation (by hydraulic action or mechanical

system or a part of a system, for example a fluid level;

4.4. There shall be affixed, conspicuously and in a readily accessible place specified on the

5. REQUIREMENTS
5.1. General
5.2. Location
A vehicle, if fitted with a control, tell-tale or indicator identified in Table 1, shall comply with
the requirements of this Regulation with respect to the location, identification, operation,
illumination and colour of that control, tell-tale or indicator.
For functions for which no symbol is available in Table 1, the manufacturer may use a
symbol following the appropriate standards. Where no symbol is available, the manufacturer
may use a symbol of its own conception. Such a symbol shall not cause confusion with any
symbol specified in Table 1.
5.2.1. The controls, listed in Table 1, shall be located so that they are operable and within reach of
the driver when seated in the driving position. The controls for "Manual Choke" and "Manual
Fuel Tank Shutoff Valve" shall be located so that they are operable and within reach of the
driver when seated.
5.2.2. The tell-tales and indicators listed in Table 1, and their identification symbols shall be
located so that they are visible to the driver when seated in the driving position, during
daylight and night-time driving. Tell-tales, indicators and their identification symbols need
not be visible when not activated.

5.4. Illumination
5.4.1. At the manufacturer's option, any control, indicator and their respective identification
symbols may be capable of being illuminated.
5.4.2. A tell-tale shall emit a light when the malfunction or vehicle condition it is meant to indicate
occurs. It shall not emit light at any other time, except during a bulb check.
5.5. Colour
5.5.1. The light of each tell-tale shall be of the colour as specified in Table 1.
5.5.2. The colour of tell-tales not listed in Table 1 can be selected by the manufacturer in
accordance with paragraph 5.5.3. below. The colour selected shall not mask or interfere
with the identification of any tell-tale, control or indicator specified in Table 1.
5.5.3. Colours are recommended in accordance with the following colour code:
5.5.3.1. Red: danger to persons or very serious damage to equipment is immediate or imminent;
5.5.3.2. Amber (yellow): caution, outside normal operating limits, vehicle system malfunction,
damage to vehicle likely, or other condition which may produce hazard in the longer term;
5.5.3.3. Green: safe, normal operating condition (except if blue or amber is required by
Table 1).
5.5.4. Each symbol used for the identification of a tell-tale, control or indicator shall stand out
clearly against the background.
5.5.5. The filled-in part of any symbol may be replaced by its outline and the outline of any symbol
may be filled in.
5.6. Common space for displaying multiple messages. A common space may be used to show
information from any source, subject to the following requirements:
5.6.1. The tell-tales and indicators displayed in the common space shall meet the requirements for
paragraphs 5.3., 5.4. and 5.5. above and shall illuminate at the initiation of the condition
they are designed to identify.
5.6.2. The tell-tale and indicators that are listed in Table 1 and are shown in the common space
shall illuminate at the initiation of any underlying condition.
5.6.3. Except as provided in paragraphs 5.6.4., 5.6.5. and 5.6.6. below, when the condition exists
for actuation of two or more tell-tales, the information shall be either:
(a)
(b)
Repeated automatically in sequence, or
Indicated by visible means and capable of being selected for viewing by the driver
when seated in the driving position.
5.6.4. The tell-tales for the brake system malfunction, headlamp driving-beam and direction
indicator shall not be shown in the same common space.

10. NAMES AND ADDRESSES OF TECHNICAL SERVICES RESPONSIBLE FOR
CONDUCTING APPROVAL TESTS, AND OF THE TYPE APPROVAL AUTHORITIES
The Parties to the Agreement applying this Regulation shall communicate to the United

The control shall be in the ON position when it is in the
direction downstream of the flow of fuel from the tank to
the engine: in the OFF position when it is in a direction
perpendicular to the flow of fuel, and in the RESERVE
position (where applicable) when it is in the direction
upstream of the flow of fuel.
In case of a system in which the fuel flow is stopped when
the engine is switched off, and if equipped with a control,
the symbols and control positions shall be the same as
identified for Manual Fuel Shut-Off Control.
