RELEASE DATE:2019-05-16 12:30
ABSTRACT: According to Regulation (EU) No 165/2014, June 15, 2019, all newly registered trucks of 3.5 tons or more and 3.5 tons of passengers with more than 9 passengers are required to install intelligent driving recorders.

REGULATORY UPDATE BACKGROUND
At present, UNECE has officially enacted 147 ECE regulations. The ECE regulations have different subdivision regulations for different automotive luminaires and reflectors, and a total of 35 luminaire and reflector regulations. For vehicle signal lights, there are license plate lights (R4), turn signals (R6), backup lights (R23), parking lights (R77), etc. in the ECE regulations. Although there are certain advantages in subdividing regulations, this not only complicates the application process for the certification process. A product unit with multiple functions needs to apply for multiple certifications (for example, a post-combination lamp requires a maximum of 5 certificates and 5 The corresponding label is placed on the part; the subdivision of the regulations also makes the revision of the regulations cumbersome, because some content will be repeated in different regulations, such as the optical performance testing process, once it is updated, all relevant regulations need to be revised.

Therefore, in order to make the regulations clearer and more concise, simplify the certificate and label requirements, UNECE has integrated several regulations on signal lights, lights and retroreflective devices, respectively, and generated new regulations R148, R149 and R150: R148 by R4, R6, R7, R23, R38, R50, R77, R87 and R91 are integrated; R149 is integrated by R19, R98, R119, R112, 1R13 and R123; and R150 is integrated by R3, R27, R69, R70 and R104.

ATIC INTERPRETATION
It is important to note that this new regulation does not change the technical requirements of current automotive luminaires and reflectors, but only integrates the same type of regulations.

Effective time: The specific time for the new regulations to come into effect has not been determined yet. It is expected to take effect in October 2019. After the new regulations come into effect, there will be a 24-month buffer period. The previous signal lights, lights and reflectors during the buffer period. Current regulations can still be used for certification; 24 months after the new regulations come into effect, signal lights, lights and reflectors can only be certified with the corresponding three new regulations.
