                Introduction
This Regulation[2] applies to front fog lamps, which may incorporate lenses of glass or plastic material. It incorporates two distinct classes.
The original front fog lamp, Class "B" since inception, has been updated to incorporate the angular coordinate system with an amendment to the values in the relevant photometric table. With this class, only light sources as specified in Regulation No. 37 are allowed.
The Class "F3" is designed to increase photometric performance. In particular the beam width and the minimum luminous intensities below the H‑H line (paragraph 6.4.3. of this Regulation) have been increased whilst controls on the maximum intensity in the foreground are introduced. Above the H‑H line, the intensity of the veiling light is reduced to improve visibility. Additionally this class may provide adaptive beam patterns where the performance is varied according to the visibility conditions.
The introduction of the Class "F3" provides for requirements that are amended to be similar to those of a headlamp as follows:
(a)        The photometric values are specified as luminous intensities using the angular coordinate system;
(b)        Light sources can be selected according to the provisions of Regulation No. 37 (Incandescent filament light sources) and Regulation No. 99 (gas discharge light sources). Light emitting diode (LED) modules and distributed lighting systems may also be used.
The cut-off and the gradient definitions.
The photometric requirements permit the use of asymmetrical beam distributions.
                   Scope

4.3.3.2.            Annex 3, Figure 4, to this Regulation gives examples of arrangements of approval marks relating to the above case.
5.                General specifications
5.1.                  Each sample of front fog lamp submitted in conformity with paragraph 2.2. above shall meet the specifications set forth in paragraphs 6. and 7. of this Regulation.
5.2.                  The front fog lamps shall be so designed and constructed that in normal use, despite the vibrations to which they may then be subjected, their satisfactory operation continues to be ensured and they retain the characteristics prescribed by this Regulation. The correct position of the lens shall be clearly marked and the lens and reflector shall be so secured as to prevent any rotation during use. Conformity with the requirements of this paragraph shall be verified by visual inspection and, where necessary, by a trial fitting.
5.2.1.               Front fog lamps shall be fitted with a device enabling them to be so adjusted on the vehicles as to comply with the rules applicable to them. Such a device need not be fitted on units in which the reflector and the lens cannot be separated, provided the use of such units is confined to vehicles on which the front fog lamp setting can be adjusted by other means. Where a front fog lamp and another front lamp, each equipped with its own light source, are assembled to form a composite unit, the adjusting device shall enable each optical system to be individually adjusted.
5.2.2.               These provisions shall not apply to front lamp assemblies whose reflectors are indivisible. For this type of assembly the requirements of paragraph 6.3.4. or 6.4.3. of this Regulation (as appropriate) shall apply.
5.3.                  Complementary tests shall be carried out according to the requirements of Annex 5 to ensure that in use there is no excessive change in photometric performance.
5.4.                  If the lens of the front fog lamp is of plastic material, tests shall be carried out according to the requirements of Annex 6.
5.5.                  In the case of the use of replaceable light sources:
