Laboratory facility's bright future

18 May 2016

Following a successful bid, the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) has announced its new state-of-the-art Laboratories facility will be undertaking testing as part of LightingEurope's Compliant Lighting initiative.

This has the objective of providing support for the placing of compliant lighting products on the European market through effective market surveillance.

It aims to ensure safe and good quality lighting products will be available for European consumers, in addition to providing a level playing field for industry suppliers.

In addition to tests carried out by LIA Laboratories, lighting products are currently being tested in other laboratories across Europe.

The tests will see LED lamps tested for safety, photometric performance and life testing compliance as part of the initiative.

Non-conforming products will be returned to their manufacturers with the request to take appropriate action.

The LIA also states that product-related allegations will be communicated to the relevant market surveillance authorities where necessary.

LIA chief executive officer Steve K Davies said: "The LIA are proud to be involved with such an important and respected initiative, which is pro-actively striving to protect the reputation and health of the European Lighting Industry and those involved."
