Join us for this event and hear directly from the EU lawmakers in Brussels: what products can be supplied on the EU market, what requirements do these products have to satisfy, how are EU policies impacting trends in lighting?

This event is organised by LightingEurope, the association representing Europe’s lighting industry in Brussels. We regularly liaise between manufacturers and lawmakers to shape a positive regulatory and business environment.

About the program and speakers

Ecodesign and Energy Labelling rules set out energy performance and labelling requirements for lighting products that are supplied on the EU market. The presentation will outline the new labelling rules entering into force in 2019 and will also summarise current discussions for new energy performance requirements.

WEEE obligations also apply to household luminaires as of 2018 and include new reporting requirements for manufacturers and suppliers.

EPBD and Smartness Indicator set requirements at building and system performance level. As the smartness indicator will be included in the EPBD, new opportunities will arise for the dissemination of (intelligent) lighting systems.

RoHS Certain lighting products benefit from an exemption to the RoHS Directive and can therefore continue to be placed on the EU market. RoHS exemptions are time-limited and LightingEurope has been coordinating the lighting industry’s applications to renew some of these.
