Segment Product Standard (Certification) Region Technical Regulatory Compliance Information Lighting All lighting products IEC/EN 62493:2015 Low Voltage Directive Worldwide The new edition of the EN/IEC 62493:2015 for EMF for lighting products was revised to make the use and application of the standard easier. Some important changes to previous edition of the standard are: cl. 4.2, Removal of the need for CISPR-15-compliance as a prerequisite for IEC 62493 compliance; cl. 4.2.2, Annex H Identification of lighting product types deemed to comply with the standard without the need for test; cl. 4.3, cl. 7, Annex I Inclusion of compliance demonstration method for products having intentional radiators; cl. 5, cl. 6 Adding some guidance to the Van der Hoofden test head method to improve reproducibility of results. Lighting Electronic lamp control gear with programmable components IEC/EN 62733:2015 Worldwide This International Standard provides general and safety requirements for programmable components used in products covered by IEC/EN 61347. The requirements of this standard are only applicable to the programmable components in the electronic lamp control gear. A risk assessment shall be done to determine which parts of this standard are applicable. If the risk assessment shows that the used software built in, to prevent the control gear from becoming unsafe, has a risk above the tolerable risk, then this standard is mandatory. The focus of the risk assessment shall be the possible risks by the electronic control gear including the abnormal operation and fault conditions of the relevant part 2 of IEC/EN 61347. For other electric/electronic circuits and their components in the electronic lamp control gear, the requirements of IEC/EN 61347 series apply. Lighting Lamps Energy Star ErP Europe EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) published the specification ENERGY STAR Lamps ver. 2.0. Some of the important changes are listed below: - Slight modification in scope: added G4,G9 type lamp base, removed ST type - Guidance on test of colour tuneable lamps - Update of referenced standards and harmonies with California & federal or coming federal standards - Increase of the luminous efficiency - Added CCT 2200K & 2500K - Reporting of spectral power distribution - Remove of rapid stress test for SSL - PF ≥0.7 for all SSL - Run-up time for CFL more strict - Standby power consumption - Connected products - Clarified and added packaging requirements - New test methods for Light output for dimmer and Light source flicker were announced in Dec. 2015 Lighting LED light sources LM-80 Europe New version of IES LM-80-15 is published. The scope has been expanded to include tests for three types of flux maintenance along with tests for how chromaticity changes over time. LED drive characteristics have been updated to include pulse width modulated current, DC constant voltage and AC regulated voltage drive. The maintenance test duration and measurement interval are no longer specified but rather left for determination according to the intended usage of the data. Lighting Luminaires GB 7000.214- 2015 Energy Efficiency China Standard GB 7000.214-2015 Luminaires – Part 2-14 – Particular Requirements – Luminaires for Cold Cathode Tubular Discharge Lamps (Neon Tubes) and Similar Equipment is approved and will be coming into force on 1 January 2016. This compulsory standard is harmonised to IEC 60598-2- 14:2009. Electrical and Electronics Electrical and Electronic products Energy Efficiency Star Notice No. 71, 2015 China On 11 November 2015 China MIIT published the “Energy Efficiency Star Certified Products List 2015”. This voluntary program promotes high energy-efficient products. The validation period for ‘’Energy Star’’ label is 2 years for consumer products and 3 years for industrial equipment. Lighting LED Lamps Safety Standard 15829:2015 Taiwan Taiwanese Standard 15829:2015 describes the safety, test methods and interchangeability requirements to be used to demonstrate compliance of double-capped LED lamps with G5 and G13 caps. It is intended for replacing fluorescent lamps with the same caps which have a rated power less than 125 W and a rated voltage under 250 V. This standard was published by BSMI and entered into force on 23 September 2015. Lighting Electric Lamps and Lighting Fixtures Energy Efficiency Resolution 9265 Turkey The following changes are done to align Turkish energy labelling requirements with EU Regulation (EU) No 518/2014 which sets electronic energy labelling and product information requirements for online sales using the internet starting from 1 January 1 2016. Lighting Self-ballasted LED lamps Decree 692/2015 Egypt Decree 692/2015 from Egypt which was enacted on 15 September 2015 approves several Egyptian national standards and makes their application mandatory from 6 November 2016. Electrical and Electronics Electric Lamps and Lighting Fixtures Energy Efficiency Resolution No. 340, 2015 Ukraine The Resolution establishes requirements for the energy labelling of electrical lamps and fixtures including high-intensity discharge lamps, LED lamps, incandescent bulbs and fluorescent tubes. It aligns Ukrainian legislation with that of the EU. It is in force since 5 Dec 2015.

Hardcover ISBN-10: 1419706926 and ISBN-13: 978-1419706929 David Lewis, FIESANZ, wrote “I came across this book recently recommended by a colleague. I believe it’s well worth taking a peek. The author, Margaret Livingstone, is Professor of Neurobiology at Harvard Medical School, studying vision using anatomy, physiology, and human perception. She has a special interest and how the eye and brain use colour and illuminance information. As one reviewer said she successfully bridges the gap between science and art. Which sits neatly within one of the aims of the Society!” He included Amazon’s summary: “With the original release of Vision and Art in 2002, Harvard professor Margaret Livingstone successfully bridged the gap between science and art, exploring how great painters fool the brain: why Mona Lisa’s smile seems so mysterious, or Monet’s Poppy Field appears to sway. In the revised and expanded edition, Livingstone presents two new chapters of her latest observations, has substantially expanded other chapters, and updates the rest of the existing text with new insights gleaned from her ongoing research, bringing the book to the cutting edge in the field of neuroscience. Accompanying Livingstone’s lively prose are many charts and diagrams that lucidly illustrate her points, as well as in-depth analyses of the phenomena found in major works of art. Be it the explanation of common optical illusions or the breakdown of techniques painters use to create those illusions, Vision and Art provides a wealth of information for artists, scholars, and scientists alike.” David concluded: “It is an excellent publication.” You can read a review of the book by Andrew Everett at https:// thekeypoint.org/2016/02/02/vision-and- art-the-biology-of-seeing/.
