The US Department of Energy (DOE) finalized the rule on the test procedures intended for certain categories of general service lamps.
The final rule specifies the following adoption:
- Test procedures for certain categories of general service lamps (GSLs)
- New test procedures for determining the initial lumen output, input power, lamp efficacy, power factor, and standby mode power of GSLs that are not integrated light-emitting diode (LED) lamps, compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), or general service incandescent lamps (GSILs)
- Clarification of the references to the existing lamp test procedures and sampling plans for determining the represented values of integrated LED lamps, general service fluorescent lamps, GSILs, and incandescent reflector lamps
The final rule takes effect on November 21, 2016.
