On the light and building the new ENEC plus mark was launched. This new approval mark is based the popularity of the existing ENEC mark for safety. This plus mark is for the initial performance of lighting fixtures.
The test programs are not official yet but will be soon. Expected next week according to the spokes man of EEPCA. It is very interesting to see how this mark will be developing. Current it is being positioned as being the European mark for performance. It is clear that the industry is not yet 100 % clear on the issue. Also some critical words from the ZVEI where to be heard on the press conference.
The test programs will further develop since it is not complete yet as for example performance over time is not yet included. Since the industry is strongly in development further development of the test program must be expected and soon it should include the requirements set by f.e. the ErP directive.
