The existing Energy Conservation (Registrable Goods) Order and Energy Conservation (Energy Labelling and Minimum Performance Standards) Regulations will be amended to extend the scope of registrable goods to include non-directional lamps1 for general lighting purposes. 1 Presently only non-directional lamps are covered. Directional lamps or lamps having at least 80% light output within a cone angle of 120°, remain out of the scope of registrable goods. From 1 July 2015, all registrable lamps as listed in Section 4 above, to be supplied or for sale in Singapore must: Be registered; Be labelled with an Energy Label. Energy labels will provide consumers information and an easy reference to the energy efficiency of such lamps; Meet prescribed minimum energy efficiency standards if they are to be supplied in Singapore. The prescribed minimum energy efficiency standards for lamps are tabulated below.
