    A critical property of the spectral output of LED solid-state lighting is the blue light content. As summarized in the article by Zielinska-Dabkowska attached to the contribution by Galadi-Enriquez, artificial blue light at night is a threat to human health, disruptive to nocturnal processes, and its locally produced glare blocks access to a view of the night sky. Eco-friendly design would use only the minimum amount of blue light required...

    Our views on the Commission’s proposal are summarised in the attached paper: https://goo.gl/NSvjpG We are in favour of Option 5 because Ecodesign & Energy Labelling requirements for lighting help mitigate climate change and help EU citizens save on their bills, and we strongly support the efforts made by the Commission intention to better integrate lighting in a Circular Economy, notably by introducing requirements on the removability of...

    In relation of the feedback from the Regional Governmento fo Andalusia, just to state that their proposal http://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/initiatives/ares-2018-476... is very closely linked to mi input at the ecodesign requirement page. Although I think that the material will end up at the same committe, I copy here my feedback (including the attachement) from the ecodesign requirements thread, for the sake of completeness and...

    The Regional Government of Andalusia (Spain)

    The Regional Government of Andalusia is drafting regulation for the preservation of the natural darkness of the night in the face of light pollution. It includes limitations on the use of light sources based on the specific G index which offers information about the amount of short-wavelength light emitted by the lamps. We suggest lamp labelling should include the same G index (described in the attached document) because it is a reliable...

    We appreciate the option to comment on the ecodesign requirements for lighting products - (EU) No 1194/2012, because the ecological impacts of lighting products are not only limited to energy consumption, but impacts on flora and fauna and human well-being are becoming evident. In an interdisciplinary collaboration (2012-16) the EU COST Action ES1204 Loss of the Night Network elaborated a Statement for sustainable outdoor lighting: http://www...
