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.

The number of non-compliant, dangerous products on the European market is increasing, through both offline and online channels. More effort needs to be put into creating EU rules that can be and are enforced and to allocate liability fairly to actors that are within the EU jurisdiction.


  • engages with EU regulators to shape rules that are easy for all companies to understand and apply to their products and for all national surveillance authorities to enforce.
  • advocates a change in the EU legal framework to ensure what’s illegal offline is also illegal online and allocate liability for all EU product requirements to an actor within the EU jurisdiction.
  • collaborates with national market surveillance authorities to share our understanding of how to interpret and apply requirements to lighting products and to signal non-compliance.
