The CEN-CENELEC Coordination Group Light (LIGHT CG) has concluded that it has finalised its tasks and requested to be disbanded by CEN/CLC BT at their final meeting on 20 March.
LIGHT CG was established as a short-term group to coordinate and advise on standardisation activities that relate to lighting. This included M/485 on ‘fluorescent lamps, high intensity discharge lamps, ballasts and luminaires’, M/495 ‘harmonised standards in the field of Ecodesign’ and M/519 ‘light emitting diodes (LEDs)’.
One of the main objectives of LIGHT CG was to develop work programmes to support the completion of the above-mentioned mandates, and monitor the work progress. During discussions on M/519, LIGHT CG confirmed that ongoing work will meet the European Commission’s request of standardisation deliverables for among others:
- LED luminaire lifetime
- Acceptable colour shift and power consumption over luminaire lifetime
- Flicker and stroboscopic effects
- Quality performance requirements for LEDs
- OLED performance requirements.
Under M/485, LIGHT CG confirmed the development of several standardisation deliverables to meet the request of the Commission for fluorescent and high-intensity discharge lamps and luminaires for street lighting.
ECOS will continue to engage with relevant standards under development, and ensure policy and standardisation coherence.
