Achieve compliance with regulatory requirements and voluntary schemes
At the same time, a host of voluntary certification and labeling programs enable consumers to identify and choose the most energy-efficient lighting products consistent with their needs.
These regulations and voluntary programs are continuously evolving to reflect the introduction of emerging 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 lighting technologies are available to meet a wide range of specific environment and application requirements. Technologies include Light Emitting Diode (LED), Fluorescent (including Compact Fluorescent Lamps - CFLs), 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 technology and its intended use, as well as the geographic market in which the product 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.
