The regulation EC 245/2009 (amended by EC 347/2010) outlines the successive phase out of products according to minimum requirements such as luminous efficacy and lamp lumen maintenance.
As of April 2015, all mercury vapor lamps (HQL), mercury hybrid lamps (HWL) and many sodium vapor lamps (NAV plug-in) are no longer allowed to be placed on the market in the European Union.
At LEDVANCE, a number of our lamps already fulfill the future requirements of EC 245/2009 and EC 1194/2012. Work is also in progress to enable these other lamps in our portfolio to comply with future requirements. One small part of our portfolio cannot be improved technically far enough to meet the demands and consequently will be phased out with the coming into force of the respective regulations.
