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

Paragraph 6.4.2., amend to read:
"6.4.2. Additional tests are made after the reflector has been tilted vertically upwards by the angle
quoted in Paragraph 2.1.4. or 2°, whichever is smaller, by means of the headlamp aiming
devices. The headlamp is then re-aimed downwards (by means of the goniometer), and the
photometric specifications shall be met at the following points:
Principal passing beam:
B50L and 75 R (B 50 R and 75 L, respectively);
Driving beam: I and point HV (percentage of I ).
If the aiming devices do not allow a continuous movement, the position nearest to 2° is
chosen."
Paragraph 9., amend to read:
"9. Conformity of Production
The Conformity of Production (CoP) 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:
9.1. Headlamps approved under this Regulation shall be so manufactured as to conform to the
type approved by meeting the requirements set forth in Paragraph 6.
9.1.2. In order to verify that the requirements of Paragraph 9.1. are met, suitable controls of the
production shall be carried out.
9.1.3. The holder of the approval shall in particular:
9.1.3.1. Ensure the existence of procedures for the effective control of the quality of products;
9.1.3.2. Have access to the control equipment necessary for checking the conformity to each
approved type;
9.1.3.3. Ensure that data of test results are recorded and that related documents shall remain
available for a period to be determined in accordance with the administrative service;
9.1.3.4. Analyse the results of each type of test in order to verify and ensure the stability of the
product characteristics making allowance for variation of an industrial production;
9.1.3.5. Ensure that for each type of product at least the tests prescribed in Annex 8 to this
Regulation are carried out;
9.1.3.6. Ensure that any collecting of samples giving evidence of non-conformity with the type of test
considered shall give rise to another sampling and another test. All the necessary steps
shall be taken to re-establish the conformity of the corresponding production.

Item 9.8., shall be deleted.
Items 9.9. and 9.10., renumber as 9.8. and 9.9.
Footnotes and , shall be deleted.
Annex 2,
Figure 10 including the explanatory text, delete.
Figures 11, 12 and 13, renumber as Figures 10, 11 and 12.
Annex 4,
Introductory Part, amend to read:
"Test on Complete Headlamps
Once the photometric values have been measured according to the prescriptions of this
Regulation, in the point for I for driving beam and in Points 25 L, 50 R and B 50 L for
passing beam (or 25 R, 50 L, B 50 R for headlamps designed for left-hand traffic) a
complete headlamp sample shall be tested for stability of photometric performance in
operation. "Complete headlamp" shall be understood to mean the complete lamp itself
including ballast(s) and those surrounding body parts and lamps which could influence its
thermal dissipation.
The tests shall be carried out:
(a) …
(b) In case of light sources: using mass production filament light sources, …"
Paragraph 1.1.1.2., amend to read:
"1.1.1.2. Test Voltage
The voltage shall be applied to the terminals of the test sample as follows:
(a)
(b)
(c)
In case of filament light source(s) operated directly under vehicle voltage system
conditions: the test shall be performed at 6.3V, 13.2V or 28.0V as applicable except if
the applicant specifies that the test sample may be used at a different voltage. In this
case, the test shall be carried out with the filament light source operated at the
highest voltage that can be used.
In case of gas discharge light source(s): The test voltage for the electronic light
source control-gear is 13.2 ± 0.1V for 12V vehicle voltage system, or otherwise
specified in the application for approval.
In the case of light sources being operated independently from vehicle supply voltage
and fully controlled by the system, or, in the case of light sources supplied by a supply
and operating device, the test voltages as specified above shall be applied to the
input terminals of that device …"

Annex 5,
Paragraph 1.2., amend to read:
"1.2. The two samples of complete lamps supplied pursuant to Paragraph 2.2.4. of this
Regulation and incorporating lenses of plastic material shall, with regard to the lens
material, satisfy the specifications below."
Paragraph 2.6.1.2., amend to read:
"2.6.1.2. Results
After the test, the results of photometric measurements carried out on the headlamp in
accordance with this Regulation shall not exceed:
(a)
By more than 30% the maximum values prescribed at points B 50 L and by more than
10% below the minimum values prescribed at point 75 R (in the case of headlamps
intended for left-hand traffic, the points to be considered are B 50 R and 75 L)
or
(b)
By more than 10% below the minimum values prescribed for HV in the case of a
headlamp producing driving-beam only."
Annex 8,
Paragraphs 1.2. to 1.2.2.2., amend to read:
"1.2. With respect to photometric performance, the conformity of mass-produced headlamps shall
not be contested if, when testing photometric performance of any headlamp chosen at
random and measured at 13.2 ± 0.1V or as otherwise specified and:
Either
Equipped with a standard gas-discharge light source according to Paragraph 6.1.3. The
luminous flux of this gas-discharge light source may differ from the reference luminous flux
specified in Regulation No. 99. In this case, the luminous intensities shall be corrected
accordingly.
Or
Equipped with the serial production gas-discharge light source and the serial ballast. The
luminous flux of this light source may deviate from the nominal luminous flux due to light
source and ballast tolerances as specified in Regulation No. 99; accordingly the measured
luminous intensities may be corrected by 20% in the favourable direction.

Paragraphs 2. to 4., replace and amend to read:
"2. First Sampling
In the first sampling four headlamps are selected at random. The first sample of two is
marked A, the second sample of two is marked B.
2.1. The conformity of mass-produced headlamps shall not be contested if the deviation of any
specimen of samples A and B (all four lamps) is not more than 20%.
In the case, that the deviation of both lamps of sample A is not more than 0% the
measurement can be closed.
2.2. The conformity of mass-produced headlamps shall be contested if the deviation of at least,
one specimen of samples A or B is more than 20%.
The manufacturer shall be requested to bring his production in line with the requirements
(alignment) and a repeated sampling according to Paragraph 3. below shall be carried out
within two months' time after the notification. The samples A and B shall be retained by the
Technical Service until the entire CoP process is finished.
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 headlamps 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 headlamps shall be contested if the deviation of at least:
3.2.1 One specimen of samples 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 CoP process is finished.
3.2.2. One Specimen of Samples C or D is more than 30%.
In this case the approval shall be withdrawn and Paragraph 5. below shall be applied.
