4.29.                ‘Concealable Illuminating Lamp’ means a headlamp capable of being partly or completely hidden when not in use. This result may be achieved by means of a movable cover, by movement of the headlamp, or by any other suitable means; the term “vanishing lamp” is used more particularly to describe a lamp which, by its movement, can be concealed inside the bodywork;

4.30.                Single and Multiple Lamps:

 “6.1.               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 Rule and enable the vehicle to comply with the requirements of this Rule. In particular, it shall not be possible for the lamps to be inadvertently maladjusted.

6.2.                  Lamps shall be so installed that correct adjustment of their orientation can easily be carried out.

6.3.                  For all light-signalling devices the ‘Reference Axis’ of the lamp when fitted to the vehicle shall be parallel to the bearing plane of the vehicle on the road; in addition, it shall be perpendicular to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle in the case of side ‘Reflex Reflectors’ and parallel to that plane in the case of all other light-signalling devices. A tolerance of 3° shall be allowed in each direction. In addition, if specifications for fitting are provided by the manufacturer they shall be complied with.

6.4.                  In the absence of specific instructions, the height and orientation of the lamps shall be verified with the vehicle at its ‘Unladen Mass’ and placed on a flat horizontal surface, its median longitudinal plane being vertical and the handlebars being in the position corresponding to the straight ahead movement. The tyre pressures shall be those prescribed by the manufacturer for the particular conditions of loading required in this Regulation.

6.5.                  In the absence of specific instructions lamps constituting a pair and having the same function shall:

6.5.1.               be mounted symmetrically in relation to the median longitudinal plane;

            “6.8.                The position, as regards width, will be determined from the edge of the ‘Illuminating Surface’ which is the furthest from the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle when referred to the overall width, and from the inner edges of the ‘Illuminating Surfaces’ when referred to the distance between the lamps.”

[26]      Delete clauses 6.9. & 6.10. and subclauses, and replace with:

            “6.9.                In the absence of specific instructions, no lamps other than ‘Direction Indicator Lamps’ and the ‘Vehicle Hazard Warning Signal’ shall be flashing lamps.

            6.10.1.             This requirement is considered to have been met if:

            6.10.1.1.          for the visibility of a red light towards the front: there must be no direct visibility of a light-emitting surface of a red lamp if viewed by an observer moving within Zone 1 in a transverse plane situated 25 m in front of the vehicle (see clause 6.11. below),

            6.10.1.2.          for the visibility of a white light towards the rear: there must be no direct visibility of a light-emitting surface of a white lamp if viewed by an observer moving within Zone 2 in a transverse plane situated 25 m behind the vehicle (see paragraph 6.12. below).”

            6.11.1.             in height, by two horizontal planes 1 m and 2.2 m respectively above the ground,

            6.11.2.             in width, by two vertical planes which, forming to the front and to the rear respectively an angle of 15° outwards from the vehicle’s median longitudinal plane, pass through the point or points of contact of vertical planes parallel to the vehicle’s median longitudinal plane delimiting the vehicle’s overall width; if there are several points of contact, the rearmost shall define the vertical planes.

            6.12.                Zone 2 explored by the eye of the observer at the rear is bounded:

            6.12.1.             in height, by two horizontal planes 1 m and 2.2 m respectively above the ground,

            6.12.2.             in width, by two vertical planes which, forming to the front and to the rear respectively an angle of 15° outwards from the vehicle’s median longitudinal plane, pass through the point or points of contact of vertical planes parallel to the vehicle’s median longitudinal plane delimiting the vehicle’s overall width; if there are several points of contact, the foremost shall define the vertical planes.”

[29]      Delete clauses 6.14. to 6.21. and subclauses, and replace with:

“6.14.              In the absence of specific instructions, the electrical connection shall be such that the ‘Main-beam Headlamp’, the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamp’ and the fog lamp(s) cannot be switched on unless the lamps referred to in clause 6.13. above are likewise switched on. This requirement need not, however, be satisfied in the case of the ‘Main-beam Headlamp’ and ‘Dipped-beam Headlamp’ where their luminous warnings consist in switching on the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamp’ intermittently, at short intervals, or in switching on the ‘Main-beam Headlamp’ intermittently, or in switching on the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamp’ and ‘Main-beam Headlamp’ alternately at short intervals.

6.15.                Tell-tales

6.15.1.             Every tell-tale lamp shall be readily visible to a driver in the normal driving position.

6.15.2.             Where a ‘Circuit-closed Tell-tale’ is prescribed by this Regulation, it may be replaced by an ‘Operating Tell-tale’.”

            6.16.                Concealable lamps:

6.16.1.             the concealment of lamps shall be prohibited, with the exception of the ‘Main-beam Headlamps’, the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamps’ and the ‘Front Fog Lamps’, which may be concealed when they are not in use.

6.16.2.             an illuminating device in the position of use shall remain in that position if the malfunction referred to in clause 6.16.3. occurs alone or in conjunction with one of the malfunctions described in clause 6.16.4.

6.16.4.             a break, impedance, or short-circuit to earth in the electrical circuit, defects in the hydraulic or pneumatic leads, Bowden cables, solenoids or other components controlling or transmitting the energy intended to activate the concealment device.

 6.16.5.            in the event of a defect in the concealment control or other defects referred to in clauses 6.16.3 and 6.16.4., a concealed lighting device shall be capable of being moved into the position of use without the aid of tools.

6.16.6.             it shall be possible to move lighting devices into the position of use and switch them on by means of a single control. It shall also be possible to move them into the position of use without switching them on. However, in the case of grouped ‘Main-beam Headlamps’ and ‘Dipped-beam Headlamps’, the control referred to above is required only to activate the ‘Dipped-beam Headlamps’.”
