Ecodesign imposes new requirements and obligations for producers and importers of lighting on the European market

What is Ecodesign?

Ecodesign is a policy in force in all European Union countries, aimed at improving energy efficiency, among others, of lighting products available on the market, in addition, it promotes a sustainable economy and enables easy verification of quality parameters, including lighting sources and fixtures.

A new scale of energy efficiency

The so far known scale from A +++ to G has been replaced by a more clear scale from A to G, to reduce the large number of classes with high energy efficiency.

The new energy label

The new energy labels introduce a more readable energy efficiency scale from A to G. The label provides information about the supplier, the model designation and the energy consumption. In addition, a QR code allows  to quickly and easily find the product in the EPREL database.

EPREL database

The EPREL database contains detailed information sheets and energy labels for each registered product. The obligation to enter a product into the EPREL database rests with both the manufacturer and the importer who want to sell their products on the European market. The QR code on the energy label allows to quickly and easily find a product in the EPREL database.

Does your product comply?

The new requirements enter into force in September 2021. Manufacturers should measure among others, the flicker parameters of LED modules and lamps under laboratory conditions in order to declare these parameters before introducing the product on the market.

Need to start compliance testing?

When you face the challenge of testing dozens of products, the key becomes the ease and speed of the entire process. Our devices are designed according to the plug and measure concept, they are individually calibrated to make your work as easy as possible.

Don't know where to start?

Don’t worry! Our engineering team will guide you through the entire process – from defining your needs, through system selection, to training and service support.

Who is this light solution for?

  • LED components and luminaire manufacturers who produce for EU markets
  • lamps importers, who introduce products to EU markets

What can you measure?

Photometric measurements:

  • goniophotometric measurements,
  • measurement of luminous intensity distribution,
