lamp approved in Italy (E3) under approval number 17325.

2.1. Field of Geometric Visibility
2.1.1. The directions H = 0° and V = 0° correspond to the axis of reference. On the vehicle they are
horizontal, parallel to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle and oriented in the required
direction of visibility. They pass through the centre of reference. The values shown in the table
give, for the various directions of measurement, the minimum intensities in cd.
3. PHOTOMETRIC MEASUREMENT OF LAMPS EQUIPPED WITH SEVERAL LIGHT
SOURCES
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 Paragraph 7.1.1. of this
Regulation.

ANNEX 4
COLOUR OF WHITE LIGHT
(Chromaticity Coordinates)
1) For checking the colorimetric characteristics, a source of light at a colour temperature of 2,856 K,
corresponding to illuminant A of the international commission (CIE), shall be used. For lamps
equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other), or light sources
(replaceable or non-replaceable) operated together with an electronic light source control gear,
the colorimetric characteristics should be verified with the light sources present in the lamp, in
accordance with Paragraph 7. of this Regulation.
2) The replaceable light source shall be subjected to the intensity, which produces the same colour
as the illuminant A of the CIE.

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.
2.2. Methods Used in Tests
2.2.1. Tests shall generally be carried out in accordance with the methods set out in this Regulation.
2.2.2. In any test of conformity carried out by the manufacturer, equivalent methods may be used with
the consent of the competent authority responsible for approval tests. The manufacturer is
responsible for proving that the applied methods are equivalent to those laid down in this
Regulation.
2.2.3. The application of Paragraphs 2.2.1. and 2.2.2. requires regular calibration of test apparatus
and its correlation with measurements made by a competent 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 9.1. 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.

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 cornering lamps 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 cornering lamps 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 Conformity of Production process is finished.
3.2.2. One specimen of samples C and D is more than 30%.
In this case the approval shall be withdrawn and Paragraph 5. below shall be applied.
4. SECOND REPEATED SAMPLING
A sample of four lamps is selected at random from stock manufactured after alignment.
The first sample of two is marked E, the second sample of two is marked F.
4.1. The conformity of mass-produced cornering lamps shall not be contested if the deviation of
any specimen of samples E and F (all four lamps) is not more than 20%
In the case, that the deviation of both lamps of sample E is not more than 0%, the
measurement can be closed.
4.2. The conformity of mass-produced cornering lamps shall be contested if the deviation of at
least one specimen of samples E or F is more than 20%.
In this case the approval shall be withdrawn and Paragraph 5. below shall be applied.
