In particular, a definition of Regulation 2015/1428 results in an adjustment of the label creation.

The regulation says:

As from stage 3, a luminaire designed for lamps replaceable by the end-user, which is placed on the market, shall be fully compatible with lamps of at least the energy efficiency class “A+” according to Delegated Regulation (EU) No 874/2012. The technical documentation file of such luminaires drawn up for the purposes of conformity assessment in accordance with Article 8 of Directive 2009/125/EC shall list at least one realistic combination of product settings and conditions in which to test the product.

From 1 September luminaires,  that are newly placed on the market, must be + compatible with a light source of the class A+.  If a luminaire must be compatible with A+, the bracket on the Energy-Label must  logically start at least at A.+. So we had to change the data in our database according the regulation 2015/1428.

In an extensive market research we have tried to determine what versions of lamps are available with at least A + on the market from reputable sellers.

For some  special sockets we can’t find a lamp with A+ on the market.

We will therefore examine frequently for these versions in the near future

If you use these bulbs with such sockets, please inform us, when you see an a+ bulb on the market.
