SCOPE 2. For the purpose of this Regulation. The following are likewise considered not to be "vehicles of a different type": vehicles which differ within the meaning of Paragraphs 2. The dimension and the external shape of the vehicle; 2. The number and positioning of the devices; 2. The headlamp-levelling system; 2. The suspension system; 2.
However it may optionally contain one or more holders for approved replaceable light sources; 2. The variable intensity control is part of the lamp, or part of the vehicle, or split between the said lamp and the vehicle. This result may be achieved by means of a movable cover, by displacement of the lamp or by any other suitable means.
The term "retractable" is used more particularly to describe a concealable lamp the displacement of which enables it to be inserted within the bodywork; 2. In such circumstances it replaces the front and rear position lamps; 2. This lamp is intended, for certain vehicles and trailers, to complement the vehicle's front and rear position lamps by drawing particular attention to its bulk; 2.
Parts 1 and 4 ; This shall be declared according to one of the following conditions: a b In the case where the outer lens is textured, the declared light emitting surface shall be all or part of the exterior surface of the outer lens; In the case where the outer lens is non textured the outer lens may be disregarded and the light emitting surface shall be as declared on the drawing, see Annex 3. See e. Part 5 ; 2. If the lighting device has no reflector, the definition of Paragraph 2.
If the light emitting surface of the lamp extends over part only of the full aperture of the reflector, then the projection of that part only is taken into account. In the case of a dipped-beam headlamp, the illuminating surface is limited by the apparent trace of the cut-off on to the lens. If the reflector and lens are adjustable relative to one another, the mean adjustment should be used. In the case of AFS being installed: where a lighting function is produced by two or more simultaneously operated lighting units on a given side of the vehicle, the individual illuminating surfaces, taken together, constitute the illuminating surface to be considered for example, in the figure of Paragraph 6.
That field of the solid angle is determined by the segments of the sphere of which the centre coincides with the centre of reference of the lamp and the equator is parallel with the ground. These segments are determined in relation to the axis of reference. Of tyres near their point of contact with the ground, and of connections for tyre-pressure gauges; 2. Of any anti-skid devices mounted on the wheels; 2.
Of devices for indirect vision; 2. Of side direction-indicator lamps, end-outline marker lamps, front and rear position lamps, parking lamps, retro-reflectors and side-marker lamps; 2.
Of customs seals affixed to the vehicle, and of devices for securing and protecting such seals. Of service-door lighting systems on vehicles of Categories M and M as specified in Paragraph 2. For trailers in the "overall length" and in any measurement in length the drawbar shall be included, except when specifically excluded. For a motor vehicle, when the vehicle is ready to move with its propulsion engine running and its movable components in the normal position s as defined is Paragraph 2.
And for a trailer, when the trailer is connected to a drawing motor vehicle in the conditions as prescribed in Paragraph 2. For a motor vehicle, when the vehicle is at standstill and its propulsion engine is not running and its movable components are in the normal position s defined in Paragraph 2. And for a trailer, when the trailer is connected to a drawing motor vehicle in the condition as described in Paragraph 2.
Colour of the Light Emitted from a Device 2. Day-time Colour of the Fluorescent a Device 2. It warns that the following vehicle needs to take emergency action to avoid a collision. Note: The above mentioned CIE publication specifies a procedure to correct the angular coordinates in the case where an alternative gonio photo meter system is used.
Reserved 2. An unladen vehicle fitted with a complete set of lighting and light-signalling equipment, as prescribed in Paragraph 3.
The document provided in Annex 1 of this Regulation shall be attached to the type-approval documentation. If the vehicle type submitted for approval pursuant to this Regulation meets the requirements of the Regulation in respect of all the devices specified in the list, approval of that vehicle type shall be granted. An approval number shall be assigned to each type approved. Its first two digits at present 05, corresponding to the 05 series of amendments 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 shall not assign this number to another vehicle type or to the same vehicle type submitted with equipment not specified in the list referred to in Paragraph 3.
There shall be affixed, conspicuously and in a readily accessible place specified on the approval form, to every vehicle conforming to a vehicle type approved under this Regulation, an international approval mark consisting of: 4. A circle surrounding the Letter "E" followed by the distinguishing number of the country which has granted approval 4. The number of this Regulation, followed by the Letter "R", a dash and the approval number to the right of the circle prescribed in Paragraph 4.
If the vehicle conforms to a vehicle type approved, under one or more other Regulations annexed to the Agreement, in the country which has granted approval under this Regulation, the symbol prescribed in Paragraph 4.
The approval mark shall be clearly legible and be indelible. The approval mark shall be placed close to or on the vehicle data plate affixed by the manufacturer. Annex 2 to this Regulation gives examples of arrangements of approval marks. Lamps may be grouped, combined or reciprocally incorporated with one another provided that all requirements regarding colour, position, orientation, geometric visibility, electrical connections and other requirements, if any, are fulfilled. The photometric and colorimetric requirements of a lamp shall be fulfilled when all other functions with which this lamp is grouped, combined or reciprocally incorporated are switched OFF.
However, when a front or rear position lamp is reciprocally incorporated with one or more other function s which can be activated together with them, the requirements regarding colour of each of these other functions shall be fulfilled when the reciprocally incorporated function s and the front or rear position lamps are switched ON. Stop lamps and direction indicator lamps are not permitted to be reciprocally incorporated.
Where stop lamps and direction indicator lamps are grouped the following conditions shall be met: 5. Any horizontal or vertical straight line passing through the projections of the apparent surfaces of these functions on a plane perpendicular to the reference axis, shall not intersect more than two borderlines separating adjacent areas of different colour. Their apparent surfaces in the direction of the reference axis, based upon the areas bounded by the outline of their light emitting surfaces, do not overlap.
Single Lamps 5. Single lamps as defined in Paragraph 2. These requirements shall not apply to a single retro-reflector. In the absence of specific instructions, the photometric characteristics e.
Direction-indicator lamps, the vehicle-hazard warning signal, amber side-marker lamps complying with Paragraph 6. The photometric characteristics of any lamp may vary: a b c In relation to the ambient light; As a consequence of the activation of other lamps, or When the lamps is being used to provide another lighting function, Provided that any variation in the photometric characteristics is in compliance with the technical provisions for the lamp concerned.
The photometric characteristics of a direction indicator lamp of Categories 1, 1a, 1b, 2a or 2b may be varied during a flash by sequential activation of light sources as specified in Paragraph 5. No red light which could give rise to confusion shall be emitted from a lamp as defined in Paragraph 2. No account shall be taken of lighting devices fitted for the interior lighting of the vehicle. In case of doubt, this requirement shall be verified as follows: 5.
For the visibility of red light towards the front of a vehicle, with the exception of a red rearmost side-marker lamp, there shall be no direct visibility of the apparent surface of a red lamp if viewed by an observer moving within Zone 1 in a transverse plane situated 25m in front of the vehicle see Annex 4 ; 5.
For the visibility of white light towards the rear of a vehicle, with the exception of reversing lamps and white side conspicuity markings, there shall be no direct visibility of the apparent surface of a white lamp if viewed by an observer moving within Zone 2 in a transverse plane situated 25m behind the vehicle see Annex 4 ; 5.
