KSA: TÜV SÜD successfully authorised by SASO to be recognised lab for SASO 2870, SASO 2902 and SASO 2927

DECEMBER 2020 - ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONICS

Recently, TÜV SÜD Shanghai and Guangzhou lab were successfully authorised by SASO as recognised energy efficiency test lab for standard SASO 2870, SASO 2902 and SASO 2927. We are able to perform test and all regulated lighting equipment and issue recognised test report for SASO EER program.

SASO2870:2018 regulated products:

This Standard covers indirect and direct general light sources having a luminous flux above 60 lumens or below 12,000 lumens of the following technologies: 

  •  Incandescent lamps 
  • Compact fluorescent lamps with integrated ballast (CFLi) 
  • Halogen lamps 
  • Light-emitting diode (LED) lamps (Incandescent retrofit types) 
  • Light-emitting diode (LED) lamps (Halogen retrofit type)

Exempted products include: 

  •  Traffic/signal lamps, such as: 
    • Signal lamps 
    • Aviation/Aircraft lighting – for runways and planes, all exterior applications 
    • Train lighting, including signal lighting 
    • Water craft lighting, including signal lighting 
    • Automotive lighting/lamps 
  • Heating lamps (infrared), such as: 
    • Infrared heat lamps – comfort heating (outdoor and indoor) 
    • Infrared heat lamps – industrial 
    • Infrared heat lamps – animal rearing 
    • Infrared heat lamps – health care 

    SASO2902:2018 regulated products:

    1. Lamps and control gears

    This Standard establishes requirements for the placing on the market of the below listed lamp types, and of control gears (ballasts) able to operate such lamps, even when they are integrated into other energy-using products. 

    This Standard is applicable to lamps and luminaires with a luminous flux above 60 lumens. Incandescent lamps with a luminous flux above or equal 12,000 lumens 

  • Halogen lamps with a luminous flux above or equal 12,000 lumens 
  • Compact fluorescent lamps with integrated ballast (CLFi) with a luminous flux above or equal 12,000 Lumens 
  • Compact fluorescent lamps without integrated ballast (CFLni) 
  • Fluorescent Lamps (all types) 
  • High Intensity Discharge Lamps, such as: 
    • Mercury Vapour Lamps 
    • High/ Low Pressure Sodium Lamps 
    • Quartz Metal Halide Lamps 
    • Ceramic Metal Halide Lamps 
  • LED Lamps (including 'retrofit LED lamps' with a luminous flux above or equal 12,000 
    Lumens) 

    2. Luminaires

This standard establishes requirement for the placing on the market of the below list of with integrated luminaires (provided with non-replaceable lamps) which are designated under the following categories: 

  • directional integrated luminaires 
  • non-directional integrated luminaires

    Exempted products include:
    The following products shall be exempt from the provisions of Section 4.1 to 4.4 of this standard, provided that in all forms of product information it is stated that they are not intended for general lighting use within the meaning of this Regulation, or that they are intended for use in applications listed below:

  1. lamps exempted for special end-use purpose:

  • Traffic/signal lamps, such as: 
    • Signal lamps 
    • Aviation/Aircraft lighting for runways and planes, all exterior applications 
    • Train lighting, including signal lighting 
    • Water craft lighting, including signal lighting 
    • Automotive lighting/lamps 

  • Heating lamps (infrared), such as: 
    • Infrared heat lamps – comfort heating (outdoor and indoor) 
    • Infrared heat lamps – industrial 
    • Infrared heat lamps – animal rearing 
    • Infrared heat lamps – health care 
       
  • Luminaires not connected to the mains, such as: 
    • Luminaires powered with solar cells (for outdoor illumination, …) 

    2. Lighting products exempted as used for non‐primary lighting purpose/applications
  • Products intended for use in applications other than general lighting and products
    incorporated into products which do not provide a general lighting function, Lamps intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres; 
  • Emergency lighting luminaires and emergency sign luminaires; 
  • Control gears (ballasts) intended for use in luminaires defined in paragraph (c) and designed to operate lamps in emergency conditions; 
  • Luminaires intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres and medical devices; 
  • Integrated luminaires for decorative purpose; 
  • Lamps marketed for operation with batteries only 
  • Lamps marketed as part of a product whose primary purpose is not lighting. However, if they are offered for sale, hire or hire purchase or displayed separately, for example as spare parts, they shall be included within the scope of this Standard. 

The intended purpose shall be stated for each product in the product information, and the technical documentation file drawn up for the purposes of conformity assessment shall list the technical parameters that make the product design specific for the stated intended purpose. These aforementioned lamps are not excluded from this Standard when they are marketed for general lighting purposes. 

SASO2927:2019 regulated products:

  • Street/road lighting
  • Tunnel lighting

In KSA, lighting equipment is regulated by SASO to fulfill the mandatory energy efficiency ratio requirement and energy labelling if necessary.  Test can only be performed in SASO authorized lab. TÜV SÜD is able to provide one-stop solution for lighting equipment from safety to energy efficiency, opening market access to KSA. Please contact your nearest GMA office for more details.
