I got various useful information from a reader of my site, about the UK situation, and he thinks the British rules may be dead as manufacturers don't care about them, and that e.g. intensity rules may be written directly into law instead of into regulations (which then lead to a test and approval sign, but doesn't this mean that by writing specifics direct into the law that the only way to be sure about validity of a lamp is by testing? Surely the police aren't going to do such things and there is no MOT for bicycles...).
Here is some information: http://www.ctc.org.uk/cyclists-library/regulations/lighting-regulations
The British Standard has the be purchased just like StVZO (though you can ask for the StVZO stuff or at least updates for free if you pester people in government...). The British standard can be viewed in public libraries.
Does anyone want to spend some time in the library and look up the headlamp rules? I'd be interested in what it says about them...
