Your trusted expert for demonstrating product safety and reliability
Testing and certification of lighting products is generally required for access to major markets around the world. Depending on the type of lighting product and the specific jurisdiction, requirements may include testing for electrical and photobiological safety, energy efficiency, electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) and chemical content. In addition, demonstrated compliance with the requirements of voluntary energy efficiency schemes, such as the U.S. ENERGY STAR ® program and the European Union’s (EU’s) Ecolabel Program, are important for acceptance by utilities, retailers and consumers.
