On September 18, 2010, the European Union issued the EuP Directive Implementation Regulations (EC859/2009) for non-directional light source EC244/2009. According to the directive, the EU will gradually ban the use of low-efficiency light bulbs (traditional incandescent bulbs and conventional halogen bulbs), and all non-directional lamps (bulbs) must comply with minimum energy efficiency regulations. The phase-out measures began on September 1, 2009, and it is stipulated that since September 1, 2009, non-transparent light bulbs must be classified as Class A (according to the EU Energy Efficiency Label). Transparent bulbs must at least reach the Class C category of the Energy Efficiency Label. After 2016, the requirements for transparent bulbs will be upgraded to the B-class category. That is to say, unless new technologies are introduced, the transparent lamps sold in the EU market after 2016 will only have energy-efficient B-class low-voltage halogen lamps and energy-efficient C-class belts. G9 or R7s lamp head light. At this time, household lamps will be based on high-efficiency and energy-saving compact fluorescent lamps and LED lamps (if LED household lamp technology is popular). In addition, the regulation also specifies energy efficiency-related performance indicators such as rated life, lumen maintenance rate, number of switching cycles before scrapping, premature scrap rate, start-up time, and color rendering index.

European energy efficiency label brings green business opportunities to Chinese LED companies
Yu Anqi, executive deputy director of the National Electric Light Source Quality Supervision and Inspection Center (Shanghai), believes that LED is a very good directional light source, and LED can also be used as a variety of non-directional light sources or lamps by lamps and light distribution, that is, LED It can be used as a directional lamp or a non-directional lamp to directly replace a conventional light source. This regulation of the EU has pointed out to some extent the direction of the recent development of LED lighting products, creating huge business opportunities for the Chinese LED lighting products manufacturers in the European market. In response to the EC244/2009 directive, Yu Anqi pointed out that LED has an incomparable advantage compared with traditional light sources in terms of energy efficiency, switching impact, start-up time, mercury content, etc., but at the current technical level, color rendering, optical communication There is still a need to work on maintenance and service life.
As long as China's LED lighting products companies take these aspects seriously, this regulation, which is regarded as a "green trade barrier", can be broken. At that time, this regulation will become a "green channel" for China's LED lighting products to be marketed in Europe. Zong Mingcheng, director of solid-state lighting standardization for Philips Lighting Asia Pacific, also said that from the current development of LED, all LED lighting fixtures have reached or exceeded the Class A level specified by the EU Energy Efficiency Label. China is setting energy efficiency standards to a certain extent higher than The EU's targets, so the EU's energy efficiency labeling system will not significantly create trade barriers for Chinese LED companies, but for specific companies, it is still necessary to do a good job in product quality, reduce light decay, improve service life and color rendering.
