Position on the draft regulation of Commission amending lamp regulations 244/2009 and 1194/2012

LightingEurope appreciates the efforts of the EU Commission to improve the energy efficiency of lamps and reduce misuse of “special purpose lamps”; nevertheless, it appears doubtful if postponing the entry into force of Stage 6 by 2018 can actually overcome the challenges that have been identified for 2016. It is to be expected that, despite a further decrease of prices for LED lamps within the next years, the availability and penetration rate for consumer lighting will not have changed significantly. It is the consumer who will take the final purchasing decision and who will increase the penetration rate of LED lamps, thus moving to a more environmentally friendly technology. Consumers will only do that when a 1:1 replacement of the well-known and appreciated domestic halogen eco lamps are widely available at an affordable price.
