MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION CONTROL PROCEDURES
1. GENERAL
1.1. The conformity requirements shall be considered satisfied from a mechanical and geometric
standpoint, if the differences do not exceed inevitable manufacturing deviations within the
requirements of this Regulation.
1.2. With respect to photometric performances, the conformity of mass-produced lamps shall not
be contested if, when testing photometric performances of any lamp chosen at random
according to Paragraph 7 of this Regulation, respectively:
1.2.1. No measured value deviates unfavourably by more than 20% from the values prescribed in
this Regulation.
1.2.2. If, in the case of a lamp equipped with a replaceable light source and if results of the test
described above do not meet the requirements, tests on lamps shall be repeated using
another standard light source.
1.3. The chromaticity coordinates shall be complied with when tested under conditions of
Paragraph 7 of this Regulation.
2. MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR VERIFICATION OF CONFORMITY BY THE
MANUFACTURER
For each type of 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.
2.1. Nature of Tests
Tests of conformity in this Regulation shall cover the photometric and colorimetric
characteristics.

ANNEX 6
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR SAMPLING BY AN INSPECTOR

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 performances, the conformity of mass-produced lamps shall not
be contested if, when testing photometric performances of any lamp chosen at random
according to Paragraph 7 of this Regulation, respectively:
1.2.1. No measured value deviates unfavourably by more than 20% from the values prescribed in
this Regulation.
1.2.2. If, in the case of a lamp equipped with a replaceable light source and if results of the test
described above do not meet the requirements, tests on lamps shall be repeated using
another standard light source.
1.2.3. Lamps with apparent defects are disregarded.
1.3. The chromaticity coordinates shall be complied when tested under conditions of
Paragraph 7 of this Regulation.
2. FIRST SAMPLING
In the first sampling four 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 lamps shall not be contested if the deviation of the measured values of the
lamps in the unfavourable directions are:
2.1.1.1. Sample A
A1:
one lamp
0%
one lamp not more than
20%
A2:
both lamps more than
0%
but not more than
20%
go to Sample B

2.3.2. Sample B
B4:
in the case of A2
one lamp more than
0%
but not more than
20%
one lamp more than
20%
B5: in the case of A2
both lamps more than 20%
B6:
in the case of A2
one lamp
0%
one lamp more than
30%
2.3.3. or, if the conditions of Paragraph 1.2.2. for Samples A and B are not fulfilled.
3. REPEATED SAMPLING
In the Cases of A3, B2, B3 a repeated sampling, third Sample C of two lamps and fourth
Sample D of two 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 lamps shall not be contested if the deviations of the measured values of the
lamps are:
3.1.1.1. Sample C
3.1.1.2. Sample D
C1:
one lamp
0%
one lamp not more than
20%
C2:
both lamps more than
0%
but not more than
20%
go to Sample D
D1: in the case of C2
both lamps 0%
3.1.2. or, if the conditions of Paragraph 1.2.2. for Sample C are fulfilled.
