Under forthcoming EU and UK legislation, lighting manufacturers will have to incorporate replaceable light sources and control gear in their products. But how will this work in practice?
- Where’s the incentive to use standard connectors?
- Who decides what a ‘commonly available tool’ is?
- Who decides what a ‘qualified person’ is?
- How do we stop the cost of the call-out, replacement and component from being more than a new luminaire?
- How do we prevent the creation of a high-margin after-market for proprietary components?
- How do we prevent low-cost ‘compatible’ components entering the market?
- If a module or gear is replaced with a more efficient model, isn’t there a need for a new ENEC test?
- Who decides what is a ‘technical justification’ for opting out of the replaceability requirement?
- How do we stop luminaires with non-replaceable components from entering the market through online marketplaces and other routes?
Recolight has gathered a team of experts to explore the issues. Join the webinar 29th April 2021.
