Growing the business of the Lighting Industry in Europe and at global level is one of the key pillars in the work of LightingEurope. Another objective is to promote and position the digitalized lighting industries as a source of information, communication (IT) network and enabler of human well-being.
Light has been known for a long time to enable sight, safety and orientation. But light can do more than enabling vision. Light has the power to energize, to relax, to increase alertness, cognitive performance and mood, and to improve the sleep-wake cycle of people
Safe and good quality lighting products in Europe as well as a level playing field and fair competition for the lighting market players are high priorities for LightingEurope.
Standardisation is a highly complex and important topic for lighting products. LightingEurope actions contribute to removing trade barriers through standards and certifications by harmonising the European set of standards and certifications and by setting international norms.
Statistics for the lighting industry are important both at EU and national level, for lamps and luminaires. With our national lighting association members there is a solid base for building up valuable information packages
The lighting industry is undergoing a transformation in which conventional lamp types are being replaced by LEDs/OLEDs, which leads to an innovative and expanding product range. This requires an ongoing revision of the classification of LED/OLED products in the framework of the 2022 harmonised system code of the World Customs Organisation.
