DOE Plans to Alter Lighting Facts Program

At the Strategies in Light conference, a US DOE said that later this year manufacturers can get Lighting Facts Label recognition for all members of a product family, while only fully testing one product in the family to the LM-79 standard. The manufacturer will then calculate or extrapolate performance figures for other products in the family for submission to the Lighting Facts program. For now, only lighting manufacturers with at least a year of history in the program, ten or more products submitted previously, and a clean track record will be allowed to participate. Each manufacturer will define its own related products grouping and the method by which they will calculate results for the products that don’t go through testing. The Lighting Facts program will review and approve that work before manufacturers can get the Lighting Facts listing. 14 Feb 2013
