11. MODIFICATIONS OF A TYPE OF PARKING LAMP AND EXTENSION OF APPROVAL
11.1. Every modification of the type of parking lamp shall be notified to the Type Approval
Authority which approved the type of parking lamp. The Type Approval Authority may then
either:
11.1.1. Consider that the modifications made are unlikely to have an appreciable adverse effect and
that in any case the parking lamp still complies with the requirements; or
11.1.2. Require a further test report from the technical service responsible for conducting the tests.
11.2. Confirmation or refusal of approval, specifying the modification shall be communicated by
the procedure specified in Paragraph 5.4. above.

12. CONFORMITY OF PRODUCTION
The Conformity of Production procedures shall comply with those set out in the Agreement,
Appendix 2 (E/ECE/324-E/ECE/TRANS/505/Rev.2), with the following requirements:
12.1. Lamps approved under this Regulation shall be so manufactured as to conform to the type
approved by meeting the requirements set forth in Paragraphs 7 and 9 above.
12.2. The minimum requirements for conformity of production control procedures set forth in
Annex 5 to this Regulation shall be complied with.
12.3. The minimum requirements for sampling by an inspector set forth in Annex 6 to this

previously granted, it shall forthwith so notify the other Contracting Parties applying this
Regulation by means of a communication form conforming to the model in Annex 1 to this
Regulation.
14. PRODUCTION DEFINITIVELY DISCONTINUED
If the holder of the approval completely ceases to manufacture a parking lamp under this
Regulation, he shall so inform the Type Approval Authority which granted the approval.
Upon receiving the relevant communication that Type Approval Authority shall inform
thereof the other Parties to the Agreement applying this Regulation by means of a
communication form conforming to the model in Annex 1 to this Regulation.

16.11. Contracting Parties applying this Regulation shall continue to allow the fitting on a vehicle of
a parking lamp approved to this Regulation in its original form and the subsequent
supplements during the 48 months period which follows the date of entry into force of

was granted more than 24 months after the date of entry into force of Supplement 5 to the
Regulation.
16.13. Upon the expiration of a period of 60 months after the date of entry into force, Contracting
Parties applying this Regulation may prohibit the fitting of a parking lamp which does not

ANNEX 3
MINIMUM ANGLES REQUIRED FOR THE LIGHT DISTRIBUTION IN SPACE
In all cases, the minimum vertical angles of light distribution in space are 15° above and 15° below the
horizontal except for lamps with a mounting height of equal to or less than 750 mm above the ground, for
which they are 15° above and 5° below the horizontal.

2.2. Within the field of light distribution of Paragraph 2, above, schematically shown as a grid,
the light pattern should be substantially uniform in so far as the light intensity in each
direction of a part of the field formed by the grid lines meets at least the lowest minimum
percentage value being shown (available) on the grid lines surrounding the questioned
direction.
2.3. However in the case where a device is intended to be installed with its H Plane at a
mounting height less than 750 mm above the ground, the photometric intensity is verified
only up to an angle of 5° downwards.
3. PHOTOMETRIC MEASUREMENT OF LAMPS
The photometric performance shall be checked:
3.1. For non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other):
with the light sources present in the lamp, in accordance with the relevant subparagraph of
Paragraph 8.1. of this Regulation.
3.2. For replaceable light sources:
when equipped with light sources at 6.75V, 13.5V or 28.0V, the luminous intensity values
produced shall be corrected. For filament lamps the correction factor is the ratio between
the reference luminous flux and the mean value of the luminous flux found at the voltage
applied (6.75V, 13.5V or 28.0V).
For LED light sources the correction factor is the ratio between the objective luminous flux
and the mean value of the luminous flux found at the voltage applied (6.75V, 13.5V or
28.0V).
The actual luminous fluxes of each light source used shall not deviate more than ± 5% from
the mean value. Alternatively and in case of filament lamps only, a standard filament lamp
may be used in turn, in each of the individual positions, operated at its reference flux, the
individual measurements in each position being added together.
3.3. For any signalling lamp except those equipped with filament lamp(s), the luminous
intensities, measured after one minute and after 30 minutes of operation, shall comply with
the minimum and maximum requirements. The luminous intensity distribution after one
minute of operation can be calculated from the luminous intensity distribution after
30 minutes of operation by applying at each test point the ratio of luminous intensities
measured at HV after one minute and after 30 minutes of operation.

2.2.3. The application of Paragraphs 2.2.1. and 2.2.2. above requires regular calibration of test
apparatus and its correlation with measurements made by a Type Approval Authority.
2.2.4. In all cases the reference methods shall be those of this Regulation, particularly for the
purpose of administrative verification and sampling.
2.3. Nature of Sampling
Samples of lamps shall be selected at random from the production of a uniform batch. A
uniform batch means a set of lamps of the same type, defined according to the production
methods of the manufacturer.
The assessment shall in general cover series production from individual factories. However,
a manufacturer may group together records concerning the same type from several
factories, provided these operate under the same quality system and quality management.
2.4. Measured and Recorded Photometric Characteristics
The sampled lamp shall be subjected to photometric measurements for the minimum values
at the points listed in Annex 4 and the required chromaticity coordinates.
2.5. Criteria Governing Acceptability
The manufacturer is responsible for carrying out a statistical study of the test results and for
defining, in agreement with the competent authority, criteria governing the acceptability of
his products in order to meet the specifications laid down for verification of conformity of
products in Paragraph 12.1. of this Regulation.
The criteria governing the acceptability shall be such that, with a confidence level of 95%,
the minimum probability of passing a spot check in accordance with Annex 6 (first sampling)
would be 0.95.

2.1.1.2. Sample B
B1: both lamps 0%
2.1.2. or, if the conditions of Paragraph 1.2.2 for Sample A are fulfilled.
2.2. The Conformity is Contested
2.2.1. Following the sampling procedure shown in Figure 1 of this Annex the conformity of
mass-produced 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 lamps are:

2.2.1.2. Sample B
A3:
one lamp not more than
20%
one lamp more than

2.2.2. or, if the conditions of Paragraph 1.2.2 for Sample A are not fulfilled.
2.3. Approval Withdrawn
2.3.1. Sample A
2.3.2. Sample B
Conformity shall be contested and Paragraph 13 of this Regulation applied if, following the
sampling procedure in Figure 1 of this Annex, the deviations of the measured values of the
lamps are:

A5: both lamps more than 20%
B4:
in the case of A2

3.3. Approval Withdrawn
3.3.1. Sample C
3.3.2. Sample D
Conformity shall be contested and Paragraph 13 of this Regulation applied if, following the
sampling procedure in Figure 1 of this Annex, the deviations of the measured values of the
lamps are:
C3:
one lamp not more than
20%
one lamp more than
20%
C4: both lamps more than 20%
D3:
in the case of C2
one lamp 0 or more than
0%
