    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...

    The Lighting Division in ZVEI -German Electrical and Electronic Manufacturers' Association thanks the European Commission for the opportunity to comment on the proposed review of energy labelling requirements for lighting products. We fully support the LightingEurope (LE) proposal: LE welcomes the discontinuation of the label for luminaires, as we believe that it does not provide any relevant information when evaluating a luminaire and has no...

On the Energy label specifically, we propose the following recommendations to improve the draft: - As stated by the new Energy labelling framework, one should aim at displaying the rescaled label both in shops and online by ~ the end of 2019. We...
