Tungsten halogen lamps for special lighting, such as oven lamps; directional halogen lamps, such as Mr series, Par series, etc.; G9 lamp single-ended tungsten halogen lamps and R7s lamp tungsten halogen lamps (ie common double-ended tungsten halogen lamps), etc. Not affected. 


It should be noted that this prohibition does not apply to related products already on the store shelves and in the warehouse.

The original phase 6 requirements of (EC) 244/2009 came into effect on September 1, 2016, and then, under the recommendation of the European Lighting Association (Lighting Europe), the European Commission’s new (EU) 2015/1428 regulations The effective date is pushed back two years to September 1 this year.
