19.0.3.1.                    This Standard repeals each vehicle standard with the name Australian Design Rule 19/00 — Installation of Lighting and Light-Signalling Devices on L-Group Vehicles that is:

                        (a)        made under section 7 of the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989; and

                        (b)        in force at the commencement of this Standard.

19.0.3.2.                    This Standard also repeals each instrument made under section 7 of the Motor Vehicle Standards Act 1989 that creates a vehicle standard with the name Australian Design Rule 19/00 — Installation of Lighting and Light-Signalling Devices on L-Group Vehicles, if there are no other vehicle standards created by that instrument, or amendments to vehicle standards made by that instrument, that are still in force at the commencement of this Standard.

Purpose and SCOPE

This Australian Design Rule (ADR) is part of the Australian motor vehicle standards system and is a national standard for the purposes of the Motor Vehicle Standard Act 1989.

The function of this Australian Design Rule is to ensure that the installation of lighting and light-signalling devices on the vehicle is such that the effective operation of these devices is not impaired.

APPLICABILITY

This ADR applies to the design and construction of vehicles as set out in the table hereunder.

These vehicles shall have their lighting and light-signalling devices installed to comply with the relevant requirements of this ADR.

Where the fitment of a lamp is indicated as optional, this means that it is not mandatory to fit the lamp, but if fitted, the lamp(s) are required to comply.

The Package 13 issue of /00 includes minor changes relating to:

clarifying the parking lamp to be used and making it optional rather than mandatory;

clarifying the requirements for the front position lamp (Clause 19.4.4.1) and make it optional rather than mandatory on mopeds;

correcting/clarifying the driving lamp and passing lamp requirements of mopeds;

making several minor corrections to the Rule, and defers the implementation date.

Vehicles certified to any of the "Acceptable Prior Rules" as shown below in the Applicability Table for a particular vehicle category shall be deemed to comply with this Rule.

2.2.3.          The following shall likewise not be deemed to be "vehicles of a different type":

2.2.3.1.       vehicles which differ within the meaning of paragraphs 2.2.1. and 2.2.2. above but not in such a way as to entail a change in the kind, number, position and geometric visibility of the lamps prescribed for the vehicle type in question; and

2.2.3.2.       vehicles on which lamps approved under one of the Regulations annexed to the 1958 Agreement, or lamps allowed in the country in which the vehicles are registered, are fitted, or are absent where their fitting is optional;

2.3.             "transverse plane" means a vertical plane perpendicular to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle;

2.4.             "unladen vehicle" means a vehicle without a driver, or passenger, and unladen, but with its fuel tank full and its normal complement of tools;

2.5.             "lamp" means a device designed to illuminate the rod or to emit a luminous signal; rear-registration-plate illuminating devices and reflex reflectors shall likewise be regarded as lamps;

2.5.1.          "equivalent lamps" means lamps having the same function and approved under the same Regulation annexed to the 1958 Agreement or in conformity with the same requirements; such lamps may have different characteristics from those of the lamps with which the vehicle is equipped at the time of approval, on condition that they satisfy the requirements of this Regulation;

2.5.2.          "independent lamps" means lamps having separate illuminating surfaces, separate light sources and separate lamp bodies;

2.5.3.          "grouped lamps" means devices having separate illuminating surfaces and separate light sources, but a common lamp body;

2.5.4.          "combined" means devices having separate illuminating surfaces, but a common light source and a common lamp body;

2.5.5.          "reciprocally incorporated" means devices having separate light sources (or a single

light source operating in different ways), but a common illuminating surface and a common lamp body;

2.5.6.          "driving lamp" means the lamp used to illuminate the road over a long distance ahead of the vehicle;

2.5.7.          "passing lamp" means the lamp used to illuminate the road ahead of the vehicle without causing undue dazzle or discomfort to oncoming drivers and other road users;

2.5.8.          "direction-indicator lamp" means the lamp used to indicate to other road-users that the driver intends to change direction to the right or to the left;

2.5.13.        "reflex reflector" means a device used to indicate the presence of a vehicle by the reflection of light from a light source not connected with the vehicle, the observer being situated near that source; for the purpose of this Regulation the reflective number plates are not considered as reflex reflectors;

2.5.14.        "vehicle hazard warning signal" means the simultaneous operation of all of a vehicle's direction-indicator lamps to show that the vehicle temporarily constitutes a   special danger to other road users;

2.5.15.        "front fog lamp" means the lamp used to improve the illumination of the road in case of fog, snowfall, rainstorms or dust clouds;

2.5.16.        "rear fog lamp" means the lamp used to make the vehicle more easily visible from the rear in dense fog;

2.6.             "illuminating surface" (see annex 3);

2.6.2.          "illuminating surface of a lamp" (paragraphs 2.5.6., 2.5.7., and 2.5.15.), means the orthogonal projection of the full aperture of the reflector in a transverse plane. If the lamp glass (or glasses) extend(s) 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 passing lamp, the illuminating surface is limited on the side of the cut-off by the apparent projection of the line of the cut-off on to the lens. If the reflector and glass are adjustable, the mean adjustment should be used;

2.6.3.          "illuminating surface of a light-signalling device other than a reflex reflector" (paragraphs 2.5.8. to 2.5.12., 2.5.14. and 2.5.16.) means the orthogonal projection of the lamp on a plane perpendicular to its axis of reference and in contact with the transparent outer surface of the lamp, such projection being bound by the covering of the screen edges situated in this plane, each allowing only 98% of the total intensity of the light to subsist in the direction of the axis of reference; for the purposes of determining the lower, upper and lateral edges of the lamp only screens having horizontal or vertical edges shall be used;

2.6.4.          "illuminating surface of a reflex reflector" (paragraph 2.5.13.) means the illuminating surface of a reflex reflector in a plane perpendicular to its axis of reference and delimited by planes contiguous to the outermost parts of the reflex reflector's optical system and parallel to this axis; for the purposes of determining the lower, upper and lateral limits of the device only vertical and horizontal planes shall be used;

2.7.             "apparent surface" for a defined direction of observation means the orthogonal projection of the light-emitting surface on a plane perpendicular to the direction of observation;

2.8.             "axis of reference" (or "reference axis") means the characteristic axis of the light signal determined by the manufacturer of the lamp for use as the direction reference (H = 0°, V = 0°) for angles of field for photometric measurements and for installing the lamp on the vehicle;

2.9.             "centre of reference" means the intersection of the axis of reference with the light emitting surface; it is specified by the manufacturer of the lamp;

2.10            "angles of geometric visibility" means the angles which determine the minimum solid-angle zone in which the apparent surface of the lamp must be visible; this solid-angle zone is defined by the segments of the sphere of which the centre coincides with the centre of reference of the lamp and the equator is parallel to the ground; these segments are determined in relation to the axis of reference; the horizontal angles ß correspond to the longitude and the vertical angles a to the latitude. There must be no obstacle on the inside of the angles of geometric visibility to the propagation of light from any part of the apparent surface of the lamp. No account is taken of obstacles existing at the time of approval, where required, of the lamp;

2.11.           "extreme outer edge", on either side of the vehicle means the plane parallel to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle and touching the lateral extremity of the vehicle, disregarding the projection or projections;

2.11.1.        of rear-view mirrors;

2.11.2.        of direction indicator lamps;

2.12.           "over-all width" means the distance between the two vertical planes defined in paragraph 2.11. above;

2.13.           "a single lamp" means any assembly of two or more lamps, whether identical or not, having the same function and emitting light of the same colour, which is constituted by devices whose lamps have illuminating surfaces which, on the same transverse plane, occupy not less than 60% of the area of the smallest rectangle circumscribing the said illuminating surfaces, provided that such assembly is approved as a single lamp where approval is required. This definition does not apply to driving lamp, the passing lamp or the front fog lamp;

2.14.           "distance between two lamps which face in the same direction", the distance between the orthogonal projections in a plane perpendicular to the axes of reference of the outline of the two illuminating surfaces as defined according to the case mentioned in paragraph 2.6.;

2.15.           "'operating' tell-tale" means a tell-tale showing that a device has been switched on and is operating correctly;

2.16.           "'circuit-closed' tell-tale" means a tell-tale showing that a device has been switched on, but not showing whether it is operating correctly or not.

4.                APPROVAL  Not applicable

5.                GENERAL SPECIFICATIONS

5.1.             The lighting and light-signalling devices shall be so fitted that in normal conditions of use, and notwithstanding the vibrations to which they may be subjected, they retain the characteristics prescribed by this Regulation and enable the vehicle to comply with the requirements of this Regulation.
