A simple, practical, balanced approach
The Global Lighting Association (GLA) has published a document containing a recommended set of regulatory guidelines for general service and linear LED lamps. Based on international standards, they are intended for use by regulatory authorities in developing and emerging economies considering national legislation and associated regulations to accelerate the transition to energy efficient lighting. The Global Lighting Association’s Regulatory Guidelines are designed to not only drive energy savings, but also enable affordable and effective market enforcement, thereby protecting consumers and encouraging fair competition.
In contrast to other initiatives proposing rule making for energy efficiency transitions, the GLA Regulatory Guidelines offer a simple, practical and balanced approach, based on GLA members’ decades of expertise and experience in the consumer and professional lighting markets. The Regulatory Guidelines define only seven essential requirements to be regulated, which cover the key elements needed to facilitate a smooth transition to energy efficient lighting of guaranteed product quality. This makes them easy and fast to implement and enforce.
