About the SSL Annex Quality and Performance Requirements for LED Lighting Products

These quality and performance requirements address LED lighting product attributes such as colour, lifetime, power, and efficacy for the most common SSL applications. These product performance requirements offer a voluntary set of multi-metric performance levels arranged in three tiers, developed by experts appointed by the IEA 4E SSL Annex member countries.  The requirements could be utilised by government, non-profit and donor agencies when designing programmes and policies. The objective is to provide a limited number of levels that can be utilised by programme designers to reduce costs of writing specifications and to facilitate economic advantages for industry/trade. Further, by promoting harmonisation of requirements they help to minimise compliance costs with SSL programmes and policies.

Thank you in advance for your review and comments.
