ANNEX

Annex 0 is amended as follows:

Items 1 and 1.1 are replaced by the following items 1 and 1.1 to 1.2.3:

1.2 // '1. // DEFINITIONS // 1.1. // The definitions set out in Directive 76/756/EEC of: // // - direction indicator lamp, // // - lamp, // // - light source with regard to filament lamps, // // - independent lamps, // // - grouped lamps, // // - combined lamps, // // - reciprocally incorporated lamps, // // - device, // // - single-function lamp, // // - illuminating surface of a signalling lamp other than a reflex reflector, // // - apparent surface, // // - light-emitting surface, // // - axis of reference, // // - centre of reference, // // - single lamp, // // - two lamps or an even number of lamps // // shall apply to this Directive. // 1.2. // Type of direction indicator lamp // // "Type of direction indicator lamp" means lamps that do not differ in such essential respects as: // 1.2.1. // Make or trade mark. // 1.2.2. // Characteristics of the optical system (luminous intensity, angle of light distribution, etc.). // 1.2.3. // Direction indicator category."'

The table set out in item 6.1 is replaced by the following:

1.2.3,4.5 // // // // // Category of direction indicator (1) // Minimum intensity (cd) // 'Maximum intensity, in cd, when used // Total for the set of two lamps (see Annex III, item 4.3.3) // 1.2.3.4.5 // // // As a single lamp // As a single lamp bearing the mark ''D" (see Annex III, item 4.3.3) // // // // // // // 1 // 175 // 700 (2) // 490 (2) // 980 (2) // 1 a // 250 // 800 (2) // 560 (2) // 1 120 (2) // 1 b // 400 // 860 (2) // 600 (2) // 1 200 (2) // 2 a // 50 // 200 // 140 // 280 // 2 b daytime // 175 // 700 (2) // 490 (2) // 980 (2) // night-time // 40 // 120 (2) // 84 (2) // 168 (2) // 5 // 0,6 // 200 // 140 // 280 // // // // //

(1) The installation of front direction indicator lamps of different categories on motor vehicles and their trailers is governed by the Directive relating to the installation of lighting and light-signalling devices (Directive 76/756/EEC).

(2) The total value of the maximum intensity of a set of two lamps is obtained by multiplying the value specified for a single lamp by a factor of 1.4.

Where two single-function lamps with the same function, regardless of whether they are identical, are grouped together in a single device such that the projections of the illuminating surface of the single-function lamps on a vertical plane perpendicular to the median longitudinal plane of the vehicle cover not less than 60 % of the smallest rectangle circumscribed by the projections of the said illuminating surfaces, the set is treated as a single lamp for the purposes of installation on a vehicle. In that case, each single-function lamp must comply with the minimum required intensity values, while the two lamps to be used simultaneously must not exceed the permitted maximum intensity values (last column in the table).

In the case of a single lamp with more than one light source:

- the lamp must comply with the minimum required intensity value in the event of failure of one light source, and

- where all the light sources are in operation, the maximum intensity specified for a single-function lamp may be exceeded on condition that it does not bear the mark "D" and the maximum specified intensity for the set of two lamps (last column in the table) is not exceeded.'
