Annex 1

Communication Concerning the Approval or Refusal of Extension or Withdrawal of
Approval or Production Definitely Discontinued of a Type of Headlamp Pursuant to
Regulation No. 76
Annex 2 – Arrangements of the Approval Mark
Annex 3 – Photometric Tests

4. MARKINGS
4.1. Headlamps submitted for approval shall clearly, legibly and indelibly bear the following
inscriptions:
4.1.1. The trade name or mark of the applicant;
4.1.2. The indication of the category of the provided filament lamp.
4.2. Moreover, they shall include on the lens and on the main body (the reflector being
considered as main body) a space of sufficient size to accommodate the approval
marking; these spaces must be shown on the drawing referred to in Paragraph 3.1. above.
5. APPROVAL
5.1. If the two samples of a headlamp type submitted in accordance with Paragraph 3 above
meet the requirements of this Regulation, approval shall be granted.
5.2. An approval number shall be assigned to each type approved. Its first two digits (at present
00 for the Regulation in its original form) shall indicate the series of amendments
incorporating the most recent major technical amendments made to the Regulation at the
time of issue of the approval. The same Contracting Party may not assign the same
number to another type of headlamp, except in the case provided for in Paragraph 2.4.
above.
5.3. Notice of approval or extension or refusal of approval of a type of headlamp pursuant to this
Regulation shall be communicated to the Parties to the Agreement which apply this
Regulation, by means of a form conforming to the model in Annex 1 to this Regulation.
5.4. Every headlamp conforming to a type approved under this Regulation shall bear in the
spaces referred to in Paragraph 4.2. above, in addition to the markings prescribed in
Paragraph 4.1.:

7.4. The beam pattern shall not present any lateral variations detrimental to good visibility.
7.5. The illumination of the screen mentioned in Paragraph 7.2. shall be measured by means of
a photo-receptor having a useful area comprised within a square of 65 mm side.
8. PROVISIONS CONCERNING COLOURED LENSES AND FILTERS
8.1. Approval may be obtained for headlamps emitting either colourless or selective-yellow lights
with a filament lamp. Expressed in CIE trichromatic co-ordinates, the corresponding
colorimetric characteristics for yellow glasses or filters are as follows:
Selective-yellow filter (screen or lens)
Limit towards red
y ≥ 0.138 + 0.58 x
Limit towards green
y ≤ 1.29 x - 0.1
Limit towards white
y ≥ - x + 0.966
Limit towards spectral value
y ≤ - x + 0.992
which can also be expressed as follows:
dominant wave-length
575 - 585 nm
purity factor 0.90-0.98
the transmission factor must be ≥ 0.78
The transmission factor shall be determined by using a light source with a colour
temperature of 2856°K (corresponding to illuminate A of the International Commission on
Illumination (CIE)).
8.2. The filter must be part of the headlamp, and must be attached to it in such a way that the
user cannot remove it either inadvertently or intentionally, with ordinary tools.
8.3. Observation concerning colour
Since any approval under this Regulation is granted, pursuant to Paragraph 8.1. above, for
a type of headlamp emitting either colourless light or selective-yellow light, Article 3 of the
Agreement to which the Regulation is annexed shall not prevent the Contracting Parties
from prohibiting headlamps emitting a beam of uncoloured or selective-yellow light on
vehicles registered by them.
9. CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION
Every headlamp bearing an approval mark as prescribed under this Regulation shall
conform to the type approved and meet the photometric requirements of this
Regulation. Nevertheless, in the case of a sample picked at random from series production,
the requirements as to respectively maximum and minimum intensities of the light emitted
(measured with a standard filament lamp as referred to in Paragraph 7.2. above) shall be at
least 80% of the minimum values and not exceed 120% of the maximum values specified in
Annex 3.

14. TRANSITIONAL PROVISIONS
14.1. As from six months after the official date of entry into force of Regulation No. 113,
Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall cease to grant ECE approvals according
to this Regulation.
14.2. Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall not refuse to grant extensions of approval
to the 01 series of amendments or the original version of this Regulation.
14.3. Approvals granted under this Regulation before the date of entry into force of
Regulation No. 113 and all extensions of approvals, including those to the original version of
this Regulation granted subsequently, shall remain valid indefinitely.
14.4. Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall continue to issue approvals for headlamps
on the basis of the 01 series of amendments or the original version of this Regulation,
provided that the headlamps are intended as replacements for fitting to vehicles in use.
14.5. As from the official date of entry into force of Regulation No. 113, no Contracting Party
applying this Regulation shall prohibit the fitting on a new vehicle type of a headlamp
approved under Regulation No. 113.
14.6. Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall continue to allow fitting on a vehicle type
or vehicle of a headlamp approved to this Regulation.
14.7. Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall continue to allow fitting or use on a vehicle
in use of a headlamp approved to this Regulation as amended in its original version,
provided that the headlamp is intended for replacement.

ANNEX 3
PHOTOMETRIC TESTS
1. For measurements, the measuring screen shall be located at a distance of 10 m in front of
the headlamp and perpendicular to the line joining the filament for driving beam of the lamp
and the point HV; the Line H-H shall be horizontal.
2. PROVISIONS CONCERNING PASSING BEAMS
2.1. Laterally, the headlamp shall be so aimed that the beam is as symmetrical as possible with
reference to the Line V-V.
2.2. Vertically, the headlamp shall be so aimed that the cut-off is situated 100 mm below the
Line H-H.
2.3. When aimed according to Paragraphs 2.1. and 2.2. above, the illumination shall meet the
following values:
2.3.1. On the Line H-H and above: 2 1x max.
2.3.2. On a line situated 300 mm below H-H and over a width of 900 mm on both sides of the
vertical Line V-V: not less than 8 1x.
2.3.3. On a line situated 600 mm below the Line H-H and over a width of 900 mm on both sides of
the vertical Line V-V: not less than 4 1x.
3. PROVISIONS CONCERNING DRIVING BEAMS
3.1. The headlamp, when aimed according to Paragraphs 2.1. and 2.2. above, shall meet the
following conditions for the driving beam.
3.1.1. The point of intersection (HV) of Line H-H and V-V shall be situated within the isolux 80% of
maximum illumination.
3.1.2. The maximum illumination (E ) of the driving beam shall be at least 50 lux.
3.1.3. Starting from point HV, horizontally to the right and left, the illumination of the driving beam
shall be not less than E /4 up to a distance of 0.90 m.
