Urgent action needed for Eco-Design lighting changes

Call to manufacturers, sellers, rental houses, installers and users of all entertainment lighting.

The EU's proposed Eco-Design Working Plan 2016-2019 will require ALL stage lighting to meet new efficiency targets in line with domestic and office lighting. The regulation will affect just about every lighting fixture used for entertainment lighting, including tungsten, arc and LED.

The new regulations (intended to start from 1 September 2020) will dramatically impact all areas of entertainment lighting and those who work in this field including lighting manufacturers, distributors, rental companies, installers and lighting users.

The deadline to respond to the EU commission has been extended to 7 May. We urge the industry to join forces with us to present a strong argument against the new proposals. This campaign is too large for one company or association to tackle alone, and time is running out.
