EU regulations
    In Europe, due to the ban on the sale of incandescent lamp policy, LED lighting demand is expected to gradually increase. In addition, a wide range of applications, including automotive, outdoor and decorative applications, as well as LED lighting in the indoor use of demand will surge, in line with EU regulatory requirements will become the Chinese manufacturers to face the challenge.
    According to the European Commission's laws and regulations, lamps and similar products in Europe must be affixed CE certification mark, then the product needs to be marked with CE mark, must comply with the EU's lighting products, electrical safety, EMC, chemical, energy and energy efficiency labels are as follows Directive requirements:

Electrical safety test
    The Low Voltage Directive (LVD) establishes the overall safety requirements for all low voltage products entering the European Union. The semiconductor lighting products belong to the low voltage products they define and therefore must follow the specifications of the low voltage directives. Different LED lamp products corresponding to the test standards are different, as follows:

B. Electromagnetic compatibility test
    According to the EU Directive 2014/30 / EU, battery compatibility tests include two aspects: electromagnetic interference (EMI) and electromagnetic tolerance (EMS), the former mainly for the conducted interference and radiation interference, while the latter mainly consider the product such as electrostatic discharge, Radiation, burst, surge, conduction interference tolerance, that is, anti-jamming test. The main test standards are: EN55015; EN61547 and EN61000-3-2 power supply harmonics requirements, EN61000-3-3 power supply flashing requirements.
C. ERP directive
     For LED lights products, ERP instructions for LED lights and control devices need to meet the following requirements:
     Energy requirements: the maximum energy efficiency index EEI; control device no-load power, standby power, and load efficiency;
     LED lamp function test requirements: 6000h lamp survival rate and lumen maintenance rate; failure before the number of switching; start time; 95% lumens rise time; premature failure rate; color rendering index; color tolerance (color consistency requirements ); Power factor PF. But the current EU ERP and LED flash has not made the request;
    Product information signs and energy efficiency labeling requirements: marked luminous flux, nominal life, color temperature and so on. Please refer to the enforcement rules for detailed requirements (EUNO.1194 / 2012; NO.874 / 2012);
LED lighting products to meet the above-mentioned electrical safety, EMC, ERP, chemical Rosh, Reach and electronic scrap recycling instructions can be marked with CE mark, in addition to LED bulbs and lamps also need to follow the energy efficiency label, according to the measured energy consumption data Stickers.

Conclusion

    In the LED product testing, in addition to common electrical, energy efficiency, electromagnetic compatibility testing and other mandatory requirements, regardless of the EU or the North American market, more and more buyers focus on LED lighting products, some voluntary certification and performance testing, such as the European market recognized GS Certificate, the United States DLC (Design Lights Consortium), Lighting Facts test certification, and so on. In addition, the specific optical properties of some LED products are also more and more attention by buyers, such as strobe verification, spectral measurement, color consistency, and color rendering index CRI, LED aging test, energy conversion efficiency, total luminous flux , The viewing angle range and other performance requirements. So in the face of increasingly competitive competition in Europe and the United States market, in addition to compliance with the mandatory certification test, the additional performance often make its products in many similar products more easily stand out.
