Lamps V1.0 transition milestones set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Energy Star are drawing near.
After May 30, 2014, EPA-recognized certification bodies will stop certifying new product submittals to the CFL V4.3 and Integral LED Lamps V1.4 specifications. Models currently certified to these specifications will maintain their certification status until September 30, 2014.
As of September 30, 2014, any lamp manufactured must be certified to the Lamps V1.0 specification to bear the Energy Star mark. All products certified to the CFL V4.3 or Integral LED Lamps V1.4 specifications will be removed from the list of Energy Star-certified products.
EPA recommends manufacturers review all currently certified models to evaluate which products will be recertified to the Lamps V1.0 specification. To determine what testing is needed to recertify products, please refer to the Recertification Testing Guides for CFLs and LED lamps and consult your certification body.
