Supplement 2 to the 01 series of amendments Date of Entry into Force: Application for Approval 4. Conformity of Production 9. Penalties for Non-conformity of Production Production Definitively Discontinued Application for Approval They are classified as follows: The application for approval of a type of device for indirect vision shall be submitted by the holder of the trade name or ec or by his duly accredited representative.
A model of information document is shown in Annex 1. The additional symbol shall be placed in any convenient position in the vicinity of the circle containing the Letter “E”. The approval mark and the additional symbol shall be clearly legible and be indelible.
Annex 5 to this Regulation gives an example of the arrangement of the aforesaid approval mark and additional symbol.
All mirrors shall be adjustable. If the reflecting surface projects beyond the protective housing, the radius of curvature “c” on the edge of the projecting part shall be not less than 2.
In cases, where the edge of the reflecting surface projects beyond the protective housing, this requirement shall apply to ec edge of the projecting part. When the mirror is mounted on a plane surface, all parts, irrespective of the adjustment position of the device, including those parts remaining attached to e46 support after the test provided for in Paragraph 6.
Rear-view mirrors Ecr I The dimensions of the reflecting surface shall be such that it is possible to inscribe thereon a rectangle g46 side of which is 40mm and the other ‘a’ mm in length, where and “r” is the radius of curvature. The dimensions of the reflecting surface shall be such that it is possible to inscribe therein: The minimum values of ‘a’ and ‘b’ are given in the table below: Requirements for aspherical parts of mirrors g46.
Aspherical mirrors shall be of sufficient size and shape to provide useful information to the driver. This normally means a minimum sce of 30mm at some point. The radius of curvature r of the aspherical part shall not be less than mm.
Value of ‘r’ for spherical mirrors shall not be less than: In the case of reflecting surfaces with a changeable degree of reflection, the “day” position shall allow the colours of the signals used for road traffic to be recognised. The reflecting surface shall retain the characteristics laid down in Paragraph 6.
Devices for Indirect Vision other than Mirrors 6. If adjustment by the user is needed, the device for indirect vision shall be adjustable without the use of tools. This shall be demonstrated by compliance with the technical requirements and transitional provisions of Regulation No.
Camera-monitor Systems The requirements of Paragraph 6.
Regulation 49 – 06 series (click to expand)
An example of the set-up is given in the Figure A below. Lamps to make the test pattern evenly illuminated. The monitor shall render a minimum contrast under various light conditions as specified by ISO It shall be possible to adjust the r4 luminance of the monitor either manually or automatically to the ambient conditions.
The measurements for the luminance contrast of according to ISO Unless otherwise specified in this Regulation, the definitions and symbols used in Paragraph 6.
Unless otherwise specifiedd in this Regulation, the requirements Paragraph 6. Luminance Adjustment It shall be possible to adjust the averagee luminance of the monitor either manually or automatically to the ambient conditions. For the extended isotropy range: Day condition with diffuse sky-light exposure test For the day condition with diffuse sky-light exposure, the test method given in ISO At the request of the manufacturer, the value for luminance diffuse illuminator may be determined by using the diagram of figure below.
Ratio of projected area vs. Evaluation shall be made in the centre of the monitor defined size, under consideration of the monitor design viewing direction see figure below.

Smear Ecf, blue and red light signals shall be distinguishable from each other. The operator’s manual shall refer to possible artefacts and their impact on the partial occlusion of the field of view and of the objects which may require the driver to be particularly alert and attentive.
This performance shall be tested according to the method given in ISO Further image quality requirements 6. Flicker The entire image area of the monitor shall be free of flicker according to the test method of Annex 12, Paragraph 1. Frame Rate Movements of objects in front of the camera shall be rendered smooth and fluid. The minimum frame rate of the system update rate of the image information shall be at least 30Hz.
InterRegs: Regulation No. | ECE – United Nations
At low light conditions or while manoeuvring at low speed, the minimum frame rate of the system i. System Latency A CMS shall have a sufficient short latency to render the scenery nearly at the same time. Quality and further ergonomic requirements 6. Glare due to high luminance of the monitor In order to avoid glare from a d46 luminance of the monitor, the luminance 4r6 be dimmable in the night condition either manually or automatically.
Other Devices for Indirect Vision It has to be proved that the device meets the following requirements: The device shall perceive the visual spectrum and shall always render this image without the need for interpretation into the visual spectrum.

Description of the test rig The test rig consists of a pendulum capable of swinging about two horizontal axes at right angles to each other, one of whichh is perpendicular to thee plane containing the “release” trajectory of the pendulum.
A device is provided which permits determination of the maximum angle assumed by the arm in the plane of release. A support firmly fixed to the structure of the pendulumm serves to hold the specimens in compliance with the impact requirements specified in Paragraph P 6. Figure 1 below gives the dimensions in mm of the test rig and the special design specifications: When, under the conditions governing adjustment laid down in Paragraphs 6.
The displacement shall be no greater than is strictly necessary for the execution of the test; it shall be limited in such a way that: The devices for indirect vision are subjected to impact under the following different conditions: Class I Rear-view Mirrors a b Test 1: The points of impact shall be as defined in Paragraph 6. The impact shall be such that the hammer strikes the mirror on the reflecting surface side.
The impact shall occur on the reflecting surface side. The point of impact shall be as defined in Paragraphs 6. The impact shall be such that the hammer strikes the mirror on the side opposite to the reflecting surface.
Nevertheless, the Technical Service responsible for testing may repeat one or both of these tests on the upper mirror if this is less than 2m from the ground.
Results of the Tests 6. In the tests described in Paragraph 6.
In the case of mirrors, this requirement is not applicable to mirrors stuck to the windscreen, in respect of which the requirement stipulated in Paragraph 6. In the case of mirrors, should the mounting of the mirror break during the tests described in Paragraph 6. The reflecting surface shall not break during the tests described in Paragraph 6.
However, breakage of the reflecting surface will be allowed if one of the following conditions is fulfilled: The fragments of glass still adhere to the back of the housing or to a surface firmly attached to the housing; partial separation of the glass from its backing is admissible provided that this does not exceed 2. It is permissible for small splinters to become detached from the surface of the glass at the point of impact; 6. The reflecting surface is made of safety glass.
In the case of camera-monitor systems, the lens shall not break during the tests described in Paragraph 6. Every modification to an existing type of device dce indirect vision including its connection to the bodywork shall be notified to the Type Approval Authority which approved the type of device for indirect vision.
The Type E46 Authority shall then either: Revision t46, if applicable, the procedure contained in Paragraph 7. The straight line joining these points runs perpendicular to the vertical longitudinal median plane of the vehicle. The centre of the segment joining the two ocular points is in a vertical longitudinal plane which shall pass through the centre of the driver’s designated seating position, as specified by the vehicle manufacturer.
