Ecodesign requirements on lighting products

Ecodesign requirements on lighting products

FEM, CECE, CEMA and EGMF have co-signed a position on the draft Ecodesign Regulation on lighting products.

The current draft Ecodesign Regulation delete the current exclusion applicable for materials handling, construction, agricultural and garden machinery, while foresee an exclusion for lighting products installed in motor vehicles.

Therefore, EGMF, FEM, CECE and CEMA request an extension of this exclusion to their equipment. Indeed, the latter, which is produced in small volumes, presents many similarities with motor vehicles and yet it was not part of the impact assessment carried out before the proposal for a regulation was drafted.

EGMF, FEM, CECE and CEMA make concrete proposals to extend the exclusion to their products. For more information, see the joint industry position
