Will EU bring back lamps and luminaires? by LUX LED magzine

June 6, 2018

DRAFT European regulations seen by Lux have raised the possibility of a return to the days of lighting fixtures with replaceable lamps.

Under the radical proposals, luminaire makers will have make the light source removable and replaceable from the fitting by September 2020.

The draft of the Ecodesign laws states that ‘manufacturers and importers shall ensure that light sources and separate control gears in scope of this Regulation can be readily removed without permanent mechanical damage by the end-user.

‘Where light sources and separate control gears…cannot be readily removed by the end-user, manufacturers and importers shall ensure that the containing product is designed in such a way that light sources and separate control gears…can be readily removed by qualified professionals’.

The proposals, if adopted, have major implications for how lights are made.
