Policies

To deliver the lighting industry’s Strategic Roadmap and increase the value of lighting by 2025, LightingEurope focuses on Better Enforcement, Sound Product Rules, Value of Lighting and Sustainability. LightingEurope also specifically addresses certain applications of lighting technology: Emergency Lighting, Automotive Lighting and UV-C Disinfection Technologies

LightingEurope advocates the Better Enforcement of EU rules to provide safe and quality products for users and a level playing field for all economic actors on the EU market.

Lighting products are subject to many EU rules: ecodesign, energy efficiency, energy labelling, safety requirements for low voltage, electromagnetic or radio emitting products and obligations to provide information.

Europe’s lighting industry has taken the lead in sustainability, not only by delivering significant energy savings but also with our track record in extending the lifetime of products, reducing hazardous substances and collecting and recycling of waste products.

LightingEurope advocates for #BetterLighting. Light enables vision, it helps us navigate our surroundings and makes us feel safe. But light can do so much more. 

Automotive lighting addresses various aspects of mobility, from safety and comfort of the road user to overall aesthetics and design. With the rapid technological changes that the automotive lighting industry is undergoing, facilitating energy savings and connectivity have also become increasingly important. The legislative framework remains complex with different rules on various levels: UNECE, EU and national requirements.

Emergency lighting is present in all types of buildings, from hospitals to schools, hotels, offices or residential buildings and is on when the electric supply to the normal lighting fails. Emergency lighting provides illumination and guidance for occupants to safely exit a building in the case of an incident. Emergency lighting is mandatory, needs continuous assessment and should be maintained.

UV-C is an established technology for disinfection that has been proven to deactivate, without exception, all viruses against which it has been tested. It has been applied extensively since 1910 when it was found to be an effective tool in preventing the spread of disease.  UV-C is used to disinfect water, air, and surfaces in industrial, commercial, medical, public and residential environments.
