System constraints for the EGPWS are:

EGPWS is otherwise functional, the EGPWS reverts to
providing basic GPWS functions (Modes 1 to 6 and
Windshear). In this state, the EGPWS may give little or no
advance warning time for flight into precipitous terrain
where there are few or no preceding obstructions. This
particularly applies if:
• The aircraft is in the landing configuration.
• The aircraft is in a stabilized descent at a normal
approach descent rate.
• There is no ILS Glideslope signal being received by the
EGPWS (not tuned, not available, or inoperative).

Proximity Warning equipment may cause unwanted alerts.
