LAMPS FOR ROAD VEHICLES –
DIMENSIONAL, ELECTRICAL AND
LUMINOUS REQUIREMENTS
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote

international co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To

this end and in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications,

Technical Reports, Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC

Publication(s)”). Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested

in the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-

governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely

with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by

agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence

between any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in

the latter.

5) IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC Publication.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of

patent rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60809 has been prepared by subcommittee 34A: Lamps, of IEC

technical committee 34: Lamps and related equipment.

This consolidated version of IEC 60809 is based on the second edition (1995) [documents

34A/592/DIS and 34A/626/RVD], its amendment 1 (1996) [documents 34A/653/FDIS and

34A/686/RVD], its amendment 2 (2002) [documents 34A/979/FDIS and 34A/987/RVD], and its

amendment 3 (2004) [documents 34A/1077/FDIS and 34A/1081/RVD].
It bears the edition number 2.3.

The origin (Edition 2 or Amendment 1, 2 or 3) of the standard sheets constituting this

consolidated edition may be identified by the headers of the sheets.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

2005. At this date, the publication will be
• reconfirmed;
• withdrawn;
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

60809 Amend 2  IEC:2002 – 7 – l
LAMPS FOR ROAD VEHICLES –
DIMENSIONAL, ELECTRICAL AND LUMINOUS REQUIREMENTS
1 General
1.1 Scope

This International Standard is applicable to replaceable lamps (filament lamps and discharge

lamps) to be used in headlamps, fog-lamps and signalling lamps for road vehicles.

It is especially applicable to those lamps which are the subject of legislation. In particular, it

includes the lamps contained in Regulations No.37 and No.99 of the Geneva Agreement of

20 March 1958 of the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (ECE). However, the

standard may be used for other lamps falling under the scope of this standard.

The standard specifies the technical requirements with methods of tests and basic

interchangeability (dimensional, electrical and luminous) for lamps of normal production and

for standard (étalon) lamps.

For most of the requirements given in this standard reference is made to the "relevant data

sheet". For all lamps listed in Clause 5 , data sheets are contained in this standard. For other

lamps the relevant data are supplied by the lamp manufacturer or responsible vendor. It

could be based on national legislation.

Other requirements such as lamp life, lumen maintenance, torsion strength and resistance to

vibration and shock are specified in IEC 60810. The latter standard also gives information for

guidance of lighting equipment design, such as temperature limits and maximum lamp

outlines.

Road vehicle lamps for supplementary purposes which are not the subject of legislation are

specified in IEC 60983.

In countries which legislate for approval, for example under the terms of the aforementioned

ECE Regulations, it is suggested that reference is made to this standard for assessment of

compliance. IEC 60810 and IEC 60983 are not intended for that purpose.

NOTE In the various vocabularies and standards, different terms are used for "incandescent lamp" (IEV 845-07-04) and

"discharge lamp" (IEV 845-07-17). In this standard "filament lamp" and "discharge lamp" are used. However, where

only "lamp" is written both types are meant, unless the context clearly shows that it applies to one type only.

1.2 Normative references

The following normative documents contain provisions which, through reference in this text,

constitute provisions of this International Standard. For dated references, subsequent

amendments to or revisions of, these publications do not apply. However, parties to

agreements based on this International Standard are encouraged to investigate the possibility

of applying the most recent edition of the normative document indicated below. For undated

references, the latest edition of the normative document referred to applies. Members of IEC

and ISO maintain registers of currently valid International Standards.

1.3 Definitions
1.3.1
category
this term is used to describe different basic designs of standardized lamps.

NOTE Each specific designation, for example P21/5W, H4, D2R forms a category. Most of these designations are

taken from the ECE Regulations.
1.3.2
type

lamps of different types are those within the same category which differ in such essential

respects as:
a) trade name or mark;

NOTE Lamps bearing the same trade name or mark but produced by different manufacturers are considered as

being of different types. Lamps produced by the same manufacturer differing only by the trade name or mark may

be considered to be of the same type.
b) bulb design, insofar as it affects the optical results;
c) for filament lamps, nominal voltage.

NOTE A selective-yellow bulb or a selective-yellow additional outer bulb, solely intended to change the colour but

not the other characteristics of a light source emitting white light, does not constitute a change of type of the light

source.
1.3.3
type test

test or series of tests, made on a type test sample, for the purpose of checking compliance of

the design of a given product with the requirements of the relevant specification.

1.3.4
type test sample

sample consisting of one or more similar units, submitted by the manufacturer or responsible

vendor for the purpose of a type test.
