[4] For the purpose of this Regulation "being part of the lamp" means to be physically included in the lamp body or to be external, separated or not, but supplied by the lamp manufacturer as part of the lamp system. a0c0
7.1.4. In the case of a system that uses an electronic light source control gear or a variable intensity control, not being part of the lamp the voltage declared by the manufacturer shall be applied to the input terminals of the lamp. a0c0

8. Colour of light emitted a0c0
... The colour of the light emitted inside the field of the light distribution grid defined in paragraph 2. of Annex 4 shall be red or white. Outside this field, no sharp variation of colour shall be observed. To check these colorimetric characteristics, the test procedure described in paragraph 7. of this Regulation shall be applied. a0c0
... 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 the relevant sub-paragraph of paragraph 7.1. of this Regulation. a0c0
... In the case of a category S3 or S4 stop lamp, which is intended to be mounted inside the vehicle, the colorimetric characteristics shall be verified with the worst case combination(s) of lamp and rear window(s) or sample plate(s). a0c0
... These requirements shall also apply within the range of variable luminous intensity produced by: a0c0

A4  The photometric performance shall be checked: a0c0
A4 3.1. For non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other): with the light sources present in the lamp, in accordance with the relevant sub-paragraph of paragraph 7.1. of this Regulation. a0c0
A4 3.2. For replaceable light source(s): When equipped with light source(s) 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 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. a1c0
A4 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. a0c0
