Report: Check Testing Results - Mains Voltage Halogen Non-Reflector Lamps

Category: ComplianceLighting

Date: 07/12/2015

Check tests on models of mains voltage halogen non-reflector lamps covered by the GEMS (Incandescent Lamps for General Lighting Services) Determination 2012 revealed that 10 out of 11 models failed to meet the minimum 2,000 hour lifetime requirement.

Given these results, the GEMS Regulator is concerned that a similarly high percentage of models still in the market, and yet to be check tested, would also fail to meet this requirement.

Therefore, as part of the 2015/2016 GEMS Compliance Monitoring Program, the GEMS Regulator is conducting check tests on a further selection of models with a focus on the minimum 2,000 hour lifetime requirement.
