By supporting the phase out of inefficient light sources, the European lighting industry has contributed strongly to the energy saving and environment policies and strategy of the EU Commission. We will further support the legislators shaping the EU legislations like the Ecodesign “One Lighting Regulation”, the new Energy Labelling Regulation proposal, the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive revision and others.
The Ecodesign Directive is the cornerstone of the EU sustainable industrial policy.
At the moment three Ecodesign related lighting regulations, or implementing measures, are in place covering a variety of lamps, ballasts and luminaire. An additional regulation defines the energy labelling of electrical lamps and luminaires.
The lighting industry welcomes and has already contributed to the initial stages of ENER Lot 37 Study on Lighting Systems, which are considered as holistic systems: light components plus sensors, controls and also the design and installation of the system.
Safety is one of the main concerns of EU institutions. The European lighting industry acknowledges the need to increase the awareness on emergency lighting.
New policies are being developed on material evaluation, classification, banning, trade, circular economy and material efficiency.
