In July 2020, we reduced requirements for product applications under building-based lighting upgrade where the product has already been approved either under public lighting upgrade or non-building-based lighting upgrade.
Updates to requirements for lighting product approvals under product category 21, 27, 34 and 35
We have reduced requirements for product applications under building-based lighting upgrade where the product has already been approved either under public lighting upgrade or non-building-based lighting upgrade.
Other changes have been made to the lighting product application guide to reflect updated requirements under lighting standards LM80-15 and TM21-19 test reports.
All lighting product applicants should review the updated LM80-15 and TM21-19 reporting requirements which comes into effect on 31 October 2020. We continue to accept reporting based on LM80-08 and TM21-11 until 31 October 2020.
Updated lighting product application requirements
We have updated the lighting product application guide with the following changes. These changes have an impact on all product applications intending to submit applications under incandescent lighting (Product category 21), building based lighting upgrade (Product category 34), public lighting upgrades (Product category 27- ESC approved) and non-building-based lighting upgrades (35).
|Update/clarification||Change||Rationale for the change|
|Reduced document requirements for some product applications under building based lighting upgrades||When submitting applications under a Building-based lighting upgrade (34), applicants are exempt from submitting an extensive list of supporting documents if the same product was already approved under product category 27 or 35. You will only need to provide the product application number for the previously approved product.||Streamline and fast track application submission and approval process.|
|Updated test requirement based on the updated test standard IES LM80-15||The test report based on the standard IES LM 80-15 replaces the reports based on IES LM 80-08 from 31 October 2020.||LM 80-15 is the updated standard. Our product assessment is now based on this standard.|
|Updated reporting requirement based on the updated standard IES TM21 -19||The report based on the standard IES TM 21-19 replaces the report based on the IES TM21-11 from 31 October 2020.||IES TM-21 -19 is the updated standard. Our product assessment is now based on this standard.|
The updated reporting requirements based on the new IES LM80-15 and IES TM21-19 standards come into effect on 31 October 2020. We will continue to accept reports based on IES LM80-08 and IES TM21-11 up until and including 31 October 2020.
