This resolution aims to regulate the technical requirements and key characteristics of energy efficiency labelling for general lighting electric LED lamps on the Argentine market. It is mandatory for national manufacturers and importers to comply with the technical requirements and the conformity assessment process established in the Annex of the regulation.

The following 5 types of lamps are excluded from the scope of this resolution:

  • LED lamps operating with batteries;
  • LED lamps that incorporate the possibility of color change;
  • LED lamps with color diodes and/or with color coating;
  • LED lamps that do not directly connect to the power supply network.

The technical requirements of products involved in this resolution will be considered adequately provided the products to meet the requirements in this measure as well as those stated in IRAM 62404-3. Details of the labelling requirement are specified in Section 3.1.

Furthermore, following IRAM 62404-3, energy efficiency label must be affixed on the packaging of products covered by this measure that are on Argentine market and information about the product life of the lamp must be provided.
