In June 2017 MELA & The Emirates Standards & Metrology Authority (ESMA) launched the first edition of the Compliant Lighting Product Requirements Guide for UAE.
Gerald Strickland Director MELA explained that ‘the guide was introduced to provide support to local market surveillance authorities including the Public Safety Authority of Dubai and others, as to which lighting products fall within the scope of Cabinet Decision Number 34 and which are not part of the scope’.
Cabinet Decision Number 34 regulates lighting products (light sources) used in residential lighting applications. Both English and Arabic versions of the document can be found via the following link on the MELA website. http://middleeastlighting.ae/industry-positions/
