    September 1, 2016, the European Commission in accordance with the European Commission (hereinafter referred to the European Commission) Regulation No. 1194/2012, a number of halogen bulbs ban. This Regulation sets out environmental design requirements for directional lamps and other lighting appliances in the EU market.

     According to EU legislation, a "directional lamp" means a fixture having at least 80% of the light output in the solid angle range of "πsr" (equivalent to a cone with an apex angle of 120 °). As of 1 September 2016, directional lights on the EU market must comply with the energy saving provisions of Table 2 (also called "Phase 3") of Annex III of Regulation No. 1194/2012.

     The provisions of the "third phase", effective as of 1 September 2016, apply to directional lights to be placed on the EU market. Reported that the provisions of the implementation, GU10 halogen spotlights and PAR30 halogen floodlight that is prohibited to market.

     However, this requirement does not apply to directional lights which have been placed on the EU market by 1 September 2016 and which have been previously sold on shelves or stored in warehouses. Reported that the EU (especially the UK), regardless of the current retailers, the accumulation of a large number of directional halogen spotlights. Although these halogen spotlights failed to meet stringent energy efficiency standards, but in September 1, 2016 has been put to the EU market, perhaps still in store sales.

     These old halogen spotlights are well received by consumers, because the price is cheaper than LED lighting. Reported that the British supermarkets and large hardware stores accumulated tens of millions of old halogen spotlights to ensure that customers can still buy in the next few years.

     Under Regulation No. 1194/2012, the ban entered into force on September 1, 2016, paving the way for the future expansion of the ban, which prohibits the sale of low-energy "Class D" halogen lamps. The ban was originally scheduled to take effect on 1 September 2016, but the effective date was postponed by two years to September 1, 2018.

     The European Union is expanding the scope of the ban on halogen bulbs in accordance with Regulation (EC) No 244/2009. Regulation 244/2009 sets out environmental design requirements for non-directional domestic bulbs in the market, including non-directional household bulbs for sale for non-domestic use or for other products. "Household light bulbs" refer to bulbs used in the lighting of domestic rooms, but do not include special-purpose bulbs; non-directional bulbs are not "directional" in nature.

     Regulation (EC) No. 244/2009 stipulates that non-directional domestic light bulbs must comply with certain lamp performance requirements in Table 1 of Annex II. The sixth phase of the Regulation, which was originally scheduled to take effect on September 1, 2016, introduced stricter lamp efficacy requirements, in other words, the low-performance "Class D" halogen bulbs were originally scheduled for September 1, 2016 Shall not be put into the EU market. However, in the year 2015, the Commission will review the Regulation on Technical Progress No. 244/2009 and decide to postpone the implementation date of Regulation VI by two years to September 1, 2018.
