Achieve compliance with regulatory requirements and voluntary schemes
Most major economies around the world have adopted regulations that mandate minimum energy efficiency requirements for lamps and lighting products, in an effort to speed the removal of less efficient products from the market. At the same time, a host of voluntary certification and labeling programs enable consumers to identify and choose the most energy-efficient lamps and lighting products consistent with their needs.
These regulations and voluntary programs are being continuously updated to reflect the introduction of newer technologies that promise even greater energy efficiency. As a result, lamp manufacturers face significant challenges in ensuring that their products are accepted by regulators and the market at large.
Today, a variety of lamp technologies are available to meet a wide range of specific environment and application requirements. Lamp types include fluorescent lamps, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), lamps based on light emitting diode (LED) technology, high-intensity discharge (HID) lamps, and induction lamps. Lamp testing is conducted in a laboratory to assess compliance with various safety and performance-related issues, including:
Specific tests required by regulatory authorities or voluntary energy efficiency programs may vary, depending on the type of lamp technology and its intended use, as well as the geographic market in which the lamp will be sold. A detailed test plan can help to make the testing process more efficient by identifying all required testing and eliminating duplicate testing efforts. An experienced, independent testing laboratory can provide assistance in developing an efficient and cost-effective plan that addresses all testing requirements.
