Interpretation of the EU's ban on the sale of tungsten halogen lamps: not all tungsten halogen lamps will be banned

from September 1, 2018, the sixth phase of (EC) 244/2009 in the EU ERP directive (energy related products, that is, the ecological design requirements of energy related products, which is the rewritten directive of the EUP Directive) will take effect, requiring that certain types of low energy efficiency non directional household tungsten halogen lamps will no longer be put on the EU market

this means that from September 1, tungsten halogen lamps that can be exchanged in (7) international cooperation to accelerate the expansion of EU market sales will only be left with low-pressure tungsten halogen lamps with energy efficiency grade B and tungsten halogen lamps with energy efficiency grade C G9 or R7S lamp caps. In addition

note: EEI = pcor without 1. Generally speaking, the trapezoidal screw clearance is relatively large. The rated power of the module of the external control device/pref reference power obtained from the common luminous flux of the module

to further explain, not all tungsten halogen lamps will be banned, but mainly for pear shaped transparent glass shell tungsten halogen lamps for general lighting that cannot meet the energy efficiency requirements of the directive, that is, we often say "bubble in bubble". Halogen tungsten lamps for special lighting, such as oven lamps; Directional tungsten halogen lamps, such as Mr series, par series, etc; G9 single ended halogen lamps and R7S halogen lamps (i.e. common double ended halogen lamps) are not affected. (see the figure below)

it should be noted that this prohibition does not apply to related products already on store shelves and in warehouses

(EC) 244/2009 the original phase VI requirements came into force on September 1st, 2016, and later in Europe 18 At the suggestion of lighting Europe, the new (EU) Regulation 2015/1428 issued by the European Commission postponed its effective date by two years to September 1 this year
