Association members commit to product surveillance

21 November 2016

Members of the Lighting Industry Association (LIA) have committed to participate in a market surveillance exercise in an all-out effort to tackle poor quality, non-compliant products entering the UK.

Beginning in 2017, the LIA has announced that the initiative will include random inspection and testing of member's products.

This is the first exercise of its kind by a lighting trade association, it stated.

Funding for the project has been utilised by LIA subscriptions and follows previous market surveillance it has carried out in the UK and EU markets.

Within the new surveillance initiative, qualified laboratory engineers will test products at the LIA's UKAS-accredited laboratory.

The results of tests will be used to create an annual State of the Industry report.

Committing to take part in the project is a mandatory condition to membership of the association.

Within its statement, the LIA said the exercise is not aimed at "name and shame or 'point scoring'".

The Association said the project is designed to "help bring clarity to the industry and gives the supply chain confidence that buying from LIA members mean they are safe and compliant".
