The United States Environmental Protection Agency
Has revamped some of the CFL and LED specifications.
There is a 30 page report and a 2 page cover letter.
Here is an example of some of the bullet points from the cover letter.
- The commercial grade performance tier proposed in Draft 2 has been removed in response to concerns that its implementation would create potential complications in the marketplace with existing “commercial” lighting products, as well as potentially confuse consumers. The Agency believes the new features of the advanced certified products list will allow users to screen and search for specific performance attributes such as lifetime, CRI and Power Factor, to better meet individual programmatic needs.
- Allowable product variations have been added to the specification to reduce testing burden, and additional testing requirements, if any, have been clarified for certain variations.
Did you pick up the part about “Potential Complications,” “Commercial Lighting Products,” and “Potentially Confuse Consumers.”
Well, we certainly don't want to “confuse consumers” by letting them know about “Commercial Grade Performance.”
