5.6.1.                              The approval mark shall consist of a circle surrounding the letter "E" followed by the distinguishing number of the country which has granted the approval; an approval mark may be located anywhere on the grouped, combined or reciprocally incorporated lamps provided that:

5.6.1.1.                        It is visible after their installation;

5.6.1.2.                        No part of the grouped, combined or reciprocally incorporated lamps that transmits light can be removed without at the same time removing the approval mark.

5.7.                                    The identification symbol for each lamp appropriate to each Regulation under which approval has been granted, together with the corresponding series of amendments incorporating the most recent major technical amendments to the Regulation at the time of issue of approval shall be marked:

5.7.1.                              Either on the appropriate light-emitting surface, or

5.7.2.                              In a group, in such a way that each lamp may be clearly identified (see three possible models in example 2 shown in Annex 3).

5.8.                                    The size of the components of a single approval mark shall not be less than the minimum size required for the smallest of the individual marks under which the approval was granted.

5.9.                                    An approval number shall be assigned to each type approved. The same Contracting Party shall not assign the same number to another type of assembly covered by this Regulation.

5.10.                                Annex 3 to this Regulation gives examples of arrangements of approval marks for a single lamp (example 1) and for an assembly (example 2).

5.11.                                Lamps grouped with a type of headlamp of which the lens is also used for another type of headlamp. The provisions laid down in paragraphs 5.6. to 5.9. above are applicable.

5.11.1.                          However, if different types of headlamps or units of lamps including a headlamp comprise the same lens, the latter may bear the different approval marks relating to these types of headlamp or units of lamps, provided that the main body of the headlamp, even if it cannot be separated from the lens, bears the approval marks of the actual functions. If different types of headlamps comprise the same main body, the latter may bear the different approval marks.

5.11.2.                          Annex 3 to this Regulation gives examples of approval marks relating to lamps which are grouped with a headlamp (example 3).

5.12.                                The approval marking shall be clearly legible and indelible. It may be placed on an inner or outer part (transparent or not) of the device which cannot be separated from the transparent part of the device emitting the light. In any case the marking shall be visible when the device is fitted on the vehicle or when a movable part such as the hood or boot lid or a door is opened.


 

6.                                          General specifications

6.1.                                    Each side-marker lamp submitted for approval shall conform to the specifications set out in paragraphs 7. and 8. of this Regulation.

6.2.                                    Side-marker lamps shall be so designed and made that, in normal use, despite the vibrations to which they may then be subjected, their satisfactory operation continues to be ensured and they retain the characteristics prescribed by this Regulation.

6.3.                                    In the case of light source modules, it shall be checked that:

6.3.1.                              The design of the light source module(s) shall be such as:

(a)        That each light source module can only be fitted in no other position than the designated and correct one and can only be removed with the use of tool(s);

(b)        If there are more than one light source module used in the housing for a device, light source modules having different characteristics can not be interchanged within the same lamp housing.

6.3.2.                              The light source module(s) shall be tamperproof.

6.3.3.                              A light source module shall be so designed that regardless of the use of tool(s), it shall not be mechanically interchangeable with any replaceable approved light source.

6.4.                                    In the case of replaceable light source(s):

6.4.1.                              Any category or categories of light source(s) approved according to Regulation No. 37 and/or Regulation No. 128 may be used, provided that no restriction on the use is made in Regulation No. 37 and its series of amendments in force at the time of application for type approval or in Regulation No. 128 and its series of amendments in force at the time of application for type approval.

6.4.2.                              The design of the device shall be such that the light source can be fixed in no other position but the correct one.

6.4.3.                              The light source holder shall conform to the characteristics given in IEC Publication 60061. The holder data sheet relevant to the category of light source used, applies.


 

7.                                          Intensity of light emitted

7.1.                                    The intensity of the light emitted by each of the two samples submitted shall be:

 

Side-marker lamp category

±10 deg.

1  In addition, for red side-marker lamp, in the angular field from 60° to 90° in horizontal direction and  ±20° in vertical direction towards the front of the vehicle, the maximum intensity is limited to 0.25 cd.

 

7.1.4.               In the case of a lamp containing more than one light source:

The lamp shall comply with the minimum intensity required when any one light source has failed;

When all light sources are illuminated the maximum intensity specified may not be exceeded.

All light sources which are connected in series are considered to be one light source.

7.2.                                    Outside the reference axis and within the angular fields defined in the diagrams in Annex 1 to this Regulation, the intensity of the light emitted by each of the two side-marker lamps supplied must:

7.2.1.                              In each direction corresponding to the points in the light distribution table reproduced in Annex 4 to this Regulation, be not less than the product of the minimum specified in paragraph 7.1. above by the percentage specified in the said table for the direction in question;

7.2.2.                              In no direction within the space from which the side-marker lamp is visible, exceed the maximum specified in paragraph 7.1. above;

7.2.3.                              The provisions of paragraph 2.2. of Annex 4 to this Regulation on local variations of intensity must be observed.

7.3.                                    Annex 4, to which reference is made in paragraph 7.2.1. above, gives particulars of the measurement methods to be used.

8.                                          Colour of light emitted

The colour of the light emitted inside the field of the light distribution grid defined at paragraph 2. of Annex 4 shall be amber. However it can be red, if the rearmost side-marker lamp is grouped or combined or reciprocally incorporated with the rear position lamp, the rear end-outline marker lamp, the rear fog lamp, the stop lamp, or is grouped with or has part of the light emitting surface in common with the rear retro-reflector. To check these colorimetric characteristics, the test procedure described in paragraph 9. of this Regulation shall be applied. Outside this field no sharp variation of colour shall be observed.

However, for lamps equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other), the colorimetric characteristics should be verified with the light sources present in the lamp, in accordance with relevant subparagraphs of paragraph 9.1. of this Regulation.

9.                                                      Test procedure

9.1.                                    All measurements, photometric and colorimetric shall be carried out with an uncoloured or coloured standard light source of the category prescribed for the device, supplied with the voltage:

(a)        In the case of filament lamps, that is necessary to produce the reference luminous flux required for that category of filament lamp;

(b)        In the case of LED light sources of 6.75 V or 13.5 V; the luminous flux value produced shall be corrected. The correction factor is the ratio between the objective luminous flux and the mean value of the luminous flux found at the voltage applied;

(c)        In the case of lamps with non-replaceable light sources: 6.75 V and 13.5 V respectively;

(d)        In the case of a system that uses an electronic light source control gear being part of the lamp[4] applying at the input terminals of the lamp the voltage declared by the manufacturer or, if not indicated, 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V, respectively;

(e)        In the case of a system that uses an electronic light source control gear not being part of the lamp, the voltage declared by the manufacturer shall be applied to the input terminals of the lamp.

9.2.                                    The test laboratory shall require from the manufacturer the light source control gear needed to supply the light source and the applicable functions.

9.3.                                    The voltage to be applied to the lamp shall be noted in the communication form in Annex 2 of this Regulation.

9.4.                                    The limits of the apparent surface in the direction of the reference axis of a light-signalling device shall be determined.

10.                                      Modification of side-marker lamp type and extension of approval

10.1.                                Any modification of a side-marker lamp type shall be notified to the Type Approval Authority which approved the lamp. The Type Approval Authority may then either:

10.1.1.                          Consider that the modifications are unlikely to have an appreciable adverse effect and that, in any case, the side-maker lamp still meets the requirements; or

10.1.2.                          Require a further test report from the Technical Service responsible for conducting the tests.

10.2.                                Confirmation or refusal of approval, specifying the alterations, shall be communicated by the procedure specified in paragraph 5.3. of this Regulation to the Parties to the Agreement which apply this Regulation.

10.3.                                The Type Approval Authority issuing the extension of approval shall assign a series number to each communication form drawn up for such an extension and inform thereof the other Contracting Parties to the Agreement applying this Regulation by means of a communication form conforming to the model in Annex 2 to this Regulation.

Examples of arrangements of the approval marks

 

Example 1 (a)

 

 

The device bearing the approval mark shown above is a side-marker lamp, approved in the United Kingdom (E 11) pursuant to Regulation No. 91 under the number 216. The vertical arrow starting from a horizontal segment and directed downwards indicates a permissible mounting height of equal to or less than 750 mm from the ground for this device.

 

Note:   The number mentioned close to the symbol "SM1" indicates that the approval was granted in accordance with the requirements of this Regulation in its original form.

 

Example 1 (b)

 


Example 2

 

Simplified marking for an assembly of several lamps that are part of the same unit

 

Notes:              The three examples of approval mark, models A, B, and C represent three possible variants of marking of a light-signalling device when two or more lamps are part of the same unit of grouped, combined or reciprocally incorporated lamps.

 

The approval mark shows that the device was approved in the Netherlands (E 4) under 3333 and comprises:

 

A rear and a side retro-reflector of a class IA approved in accordance with Regulation No. 3, 02 series of amendments;

A rear direction indicator lamp of category 2a approved in accordance with Regulation No. 6, 01 series of amendments;

Example 3

 

 

The above example corresponds to the marking of a lens intended to be used in different types of headlamps, namely:

 

Either:             A headlamp with a passing-beam designed for right-hand and left-hand traffic and a driving-beam with a maximum intensity comprised between 86,250 and 101,250 candelas, approved in Germany (E 1) in accordance with the requirements of Regulation No. 8 as amended by the 02 series of amendments; which is reciprocally incorporated with a front direction indicator approved in accordance with the 01 series of amendments to Regulation No. 6 and grouped with a side-marker lamp in accordance with this Regulation in the original form.

or:                    A headlamp with a passing-beam designed for right-hand and left-hand traffic and a driving-beam approved in Germany (E 1) in accordance with the requirements of Regulation No. 1 as amended by the 01 series of amendments, which is reciprocally incorporated with the same front direction indicator and the same side-marker lamp as above.

or even:           Either of the above-mentioned headlamps approved as a single lamp.


 

The main body of the headlamp shall bear the only valid approval number, for instance:

 

Example 4

 

Light source modules

 

MD E3 17325

 

The light source module bearing the identification code shown above has been approved together with a lamp approved in Italy (E 3) under approval number 17325.


Annex 4

 

Photometric measurements

 

1.                                          Measurement methods

1.1.                                    During photometric measurement stray reflections shall be avoided by appropriate marking.

1.2.                                    In case the results of measurements should be challenged, measurements shall be carried out in such a way as to meet the following requirements:

1.2.1.                              The distance of measurement shall be such that the law of the inverse of the square of the distance is applicable;

1.2.2.                              The measuring equipment shall be such that the angular aperture of the receiver viewed from the reference centre of the lamp is comprised between 10 minutes and 1 degree;

1.2.3.                              The intensity requirement for a particular direction of observation shall be deemed to be satisfied if that requirement is met in a direction deviating by not more than one-quarter of a degree from the direction of observation.

1.3.                                    In the case where the device may be installed on the vehicle in more than one or in a field of different positions the photometric measurements shall be repeated for each position or for the extreme positions of the field of the reference axis specified by the manufacturer.

1.4.                                    The direction H = 0° and V = 0° corresponds to the reference axis. (On the vehicle it is horizontal, perpendicular to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle and oriented in the required direction of visibility.) It passes through the centre of reference.

2.                                          Tables of light distribution

2.1.                                    SM1 category of side-marker lamps

 

2.1.1.                              Minimum values:

0.6 cd at any point other than the reference axis, at which it shall be 4.0 cd.

2.1.2.                              Maximum values:

25.0 cd at any point

2.2.                                    SM2 category of side-marker lamps

 

2.2.1.                              Minimum values:

0.6 cd, at any point

2.2.2.                              Maximum values:

25.0 cd, at any point

2.3.                                    For SM1 and SM2 category of side-marker lamps it may be sufficient to check only five points selected by the Type Approval Authority.

2.4.                                    Within the field of light distribution shown above as a grid the light pattern should be substantially uniform, i.e. the light intensity in every direction within a part of the field formed by the grid lines shall meet at least the lowest minimum value applicable to the respective grid lines.

2.5.                                    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 9.1. of this Regulation.

3.2.                                    For replaceable light sources:

When equipped with light sources at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V, 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 (6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V).

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 (6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V).

The actual luminous fluxes of each light source used shall not deviate more than ±5 per cent 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.


Annex 5

 

Minimum requirements for conformity of production control procedures

 

1.                                          General

1.1.                                    The conformity requirements shall be considered satisfied from a mechanical and geometric standpoint, if the differences do not exceed inevitable manufacturing deviations within the requirements of this Regulation.

1.2.                                    With respect to photometric performances, the conformity of mass-produced side-marker lamps shall not be contested if, when testing photometric performances of any side-marker lamp chosen at random and equipped with a standard light source, or when the side-marker lamps are equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps or other), and when all measurements are made at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V respectively:

1.2.1.                              No measured value deviates unfavourably by more than 20 per cent from the values prescribed in this Regulation.

1.2.2.                              If, in the case of a side-marker lamp equipped with a replaceable light source and if results of the test described above do not meet the requirements, tests on side-marker lamps shall be repeated using another standard light source.

1.3.                                    The chromaticity coordinates shall be complied with when the side-marker lamp is equipped with a standard light source, or for lamps equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps or other), when the colorimetric characteristics are verified with the light source present in the side-marker lamp.

2.                                          Minimum requirements for verification of conformity by the manufacturer

For each type of side-marker 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 Type Approval 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. 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 side-marker lamps shall be selected at random from the production of a uniform batch. A uniform batch means a set of side-marker 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 Type Approval Authority, criteria governing the acceptability of his products in order to meet the specifications laid down for verification of conformity of products in paragraph 11.1. of this Regulation.

The criteria governing the acceptability shall be such that, with a confidence level of 95 per cent, the minimum probability of passing a spot check in accordance with Annex 6 (first sampling) would be 0.95.
