Photometric Characteristics of Rear Fog Lamp for
Power-driven Vehicles and Their Trailers
This Standard specifies the technical specifications, test methods and inspection rules of rear fog lamps for motor vehicles and their trailers.
This Standard applies to all types of rear fog lamps for power-driven vehicles of categories L3, L4, L5, L7, M, N and trailer of category O.
In this Standard, the rear fog lamps of power-driven vehicles and their trailers are referred to as rear fog lamps.
L7 refers to four-wheeled motorcycles.

ECE R37 Uniform Provisions Concerning the Approval of Filament Lamps for Use in Approved Lamp Units of Power-Driven Vehicles and of Their Trailers 3 Terms and Definitions
For the purpose of this Standard, the terms and definitions given in GB 4785 apply. 5.2.5 Photometric measurement of lamps equipped with several light sources 220.127.116.11 For replaceable filament lamps mass produced.
When equipped with light source(s) at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V, the lamps mass produced can be used and 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). The actual luminous fluxes of each light source used shall not deviate more than 5 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.
18.104.22.168 In the case of a lamp equipped with non-replaceable light sources or other, it shall be measured at the voltage prescribed by the manufacturer and the manufacturer shall provide a special power supply device when necessary.
5.3 Conditions of heat resistance test
5.3.1 In the case of a lamp equipped with non-replaceable light sources (filament lamps and other), it shall be tested at 6.75 V, 13.5 V or 28.0 V respectively. 5.3.2 In the case of a lamp equipped with replaceable light sources, the test shall be carried out by regulating the voltage to obtain the mean power specified in GB 15766.1 and ECE R37; and where only the maximum power is specified, the test shall be carried out by regulating the voltage to obtain a power equal to 90 per cent of the specified power.
5.3.3 In the case of light sources equipped with a variable luminous intensity control, the test shall be carried out under the conditions given at minimum 90 per cent of the higher luminous intensity.
5.4 Before the photometric performance test, a rear fog lamp or filament lamp equipped with non-replaceable light sources shall be illuminated at the testing voltage and its photometric performance shall be stabilized.
5.5 The distance of the photometric measurement shall be such that the law of the inverse of the square of the distance is applicable.
5.6 The measuring equipment shall be such that the angle subtended by the receiver from the reference centre of the light is between 10' and 1??.
5.7 The intensity requirement for a particular direction of observation shall be satisfied if the required intensity is obtained in a direction deviating by not more than one-quarter of a degree from the direction of observation.
5.8 The measurement of measuring angle shall be based on reference axes and reference centres which shall be indicated on the drawings of the manufacturer.
