Draft European regulations will see the effective banning of both tungsten halogen and compact fluorescent as light sources by 2020. A minimum efficiency requirement of 85 lumens per watt and a maximum standby power of 0.5W on all light sources is set to come into force as part of a review of the Ecodesign laws. The laws have progressively banned incandescent sources in recent years and this coming September sees the phasing out of non-directional halogen bulbs, including candles, general lighting service (GLS), globe and golf ball shapes. The draft of the new regulations also propose a return to the days of lighting fixtures with replaceable lamps. Under the current wording, luminaire makers will have to make the light source removable and replaceable from the fitting by September 2020. A detailed presentation on the proposals will be included in the Lighting Fixture Design 2018 conference (click on the logo).
