Lamp industry to harmonise high performance lamp regs

2 July 2011 10.00 BST


(Belgium) - European Lamp Companies Federation (ELC) to address lamp safety concerns.

High performance lamps, primarily used in professional applications, contain small amounts of low level radiation emitters to enable them to perform efficiently in demanding environments. Although the lamps are proven harmless to health and the environment by independent studies, and while many authorities acknowledge that these lamps shall not require any regulatory control, national interpretations of the international basic safety standards and implementation into national regulation is still quite varied.
 
Together with the relevant authorities, the ELC is working towards harmonisation of the interpretation and implementation of the applicable regulations. This has resulted in 30 countries granting one or more lamp manufacturers a license or exemption from further licensing requirements. The lamp manufacturers are now informing their customers and other stakeholders about the current situation on a country by country basis.
 
Jürgen Sturm, ELC Secretary General, confirms: “As a responsible industry we continue our dialogue with national and international regulatory authorities on the specific licensing requirements per country. Our final objective is to achieve harmonization of the complex set of regulations facing the whole supply chain.”
