Definitions for the purposes of Annexes III to V
For the purposes of Annexes III to V, the following definitions shall apply:
(a) ‘luminous flux’ (Φ) means the quantity derived from radiant flux (radiant power) by evaluating the radiation in
accordance with the spectral sensitivity of the human eye. Without further specification it refers to the initial
luminous flux;
(b) ‘initial luminous flux’ means the luminous flux of a lamp after a short operating period;
(c) useful
luminous
flux
(Φ use ) means the part of the luminous flux of a lamp falling within the cone used for calculating
the lamp’s energy efficiency in point 1.1 of Annex III;
(d) ‘luminous intensity’ (candela or cd) means the quotient of the luminous flux leaving the source and propagated in the
element of solid angle containing the given direction, by the element of solid angle;
(e) ‘beam angle’ means the angle between two imaginary lines in a plane through the optical beam axis, such that these
lines pass through the centre of the front face of the lamp and through points at which the luminous intensity is
50 % of the centre beam intensity, where the centre beam intensity is the value of luminous intensity measured on
the optical beam axis;
(f) ‘chromaticity’ means the property of a colour stimulus defined by its chromaticity coordinates, or by its dominant or
complementary wavelength and purity taken together;
(g) ‘correlated colour temperature’ (Tc [K]) means the temperature of a Planckian (black body) radiator whose perceived
colour most closely resembles that of a given stimulus at the same brightness and under specified viewing conditions;
(h) ‘colour rendering’ (Ra) means the effect of an illuminant on the colour appearance of objects by conscious or
subconscious comparison with their colour appearance under a reference illuminant;
(i) ‘colour consistency’ means the maximum deviation of chromaticity coordinates (x and y) of a single lamp from a
chromaticity centre point (cx and cy), expressed as the size (in steps) of the MacAdam ellipse formed around the
chromaticity centre point (cx and cy);
(j) ‘lamp lumen maintenance factor’ (LLMF) means the ratio of the luminous flux emitted by the lamp at a given time in
its life to the initial luminous flux;
(k) ‘lamp survival factor’ (LSF) means the defined fraction of the total number of lamps that continue to operate at a
given time under defined conditions and switching frequency;
(l) ‘lamp lifetime’ means the period of operating time after which the fraction of the total number of lamps which
continue to operate corresponds to the lamp survival factor of the lamp under defined conditions and switching
frequency. For LED lamps, lamp lifetime means the operating time between the start of their use and the moment
when only 50 % of the total number of lamps survive or when the average lumen maintenance of the batch falls
below 70 %, whichever occurs first;
(m) ‘lamp start time’ means the time needed, after the supply voltage is switched on, for the lamp to start fully and
remain alight;
(n) ‘lamp warm-up time’ means the time needed after start-up, for the lamp to emit a defined proportion of its stabilised
luminous flux;
(o) ‘power factor’ means the ratio of the absolute value of the active power to the apparent power under periodic
conditions;
(p) ‘lamp mercury content’ means the mercury contained in the lamp;
(q) ‘rated value’ means the value of a quantity used for specification purposes, established for a specified set of operating
conditions of a product. Unless stated otherwise, all requirements are set in rated values;
(r) ‘nominal value’ means the value of a quantity used to designate and identify a product;
(s) ‘no-load mode’ means the condition of a lamp control gear where it is connected to the supply voltage and where its
output is disconnected in normal operation from all the primary loads by the switch intended for this purpose (a
faulty or missing lamp, or a disconnection of the load by a safety switch is not normal operation);

L
342/9
(t) ‘standby mode’ means a mode of lamp control gear where the lamps are switched off with the help of a control
signal under normal operating conditions. It applies to lamp control gear with a built-in switching function and
permanently connected to the supply voltage when in normal use;
(u) ‘control signal’ means an analogue or digital signal transmitted to the control gear wirelessly or wired either via
voltage modulation in separate control cables or via modulated signal in the supply voltage;
(v) ‘standby power’ means the power consumed by the lamp control gear in standby mode;
(w) ‘no-load power’ means the power consumed by the lamp control gear in no-load mode;
(x) ‘switching cycle’ means the sequence of switching the lamp on and off at set intervals;
(y) ‘premature failure’ means when a lamp reaches the end of its life after a period in operation which is less than the
rated life time stated in the technical documentation;
(z) ‘anti-glare shield’ means a mechanical or optical reflective or non-reflective impervious baffle designed to block direct
visible radiation emitted from the light source of a directional lamp, in order to avoid temporary partial blindness
(disability glare) if viewed directly by an observer. It does not include surface coating of the light source in the
directional lamp;
(aa) ‘compatibility’ means that when a product is intended to be installed in an installation, inserted into another product

three to be tested shall come from three other sources where possible.

L 342/20
EN
Official Journal of the European Union
14.12.2012
Member States’ authorities shall apply the following procedure in the order given below, until a conclusion regarding
the compliance of model(s) of the LED module(s) is reached, or they conclude that testing cannot be performed.
‘Luminaire’ refers to the luminaire containing the LED modules, and ‘test’ refers to the procedure described in part 1
of this Annex, except in point (4). If testing according to both points (1) and (2) is allowed in the technical
documentation file, the authorities may choose the most appropriate method.
(1) If the technical documentation file of the luminaire provides for testing the whole luminaire as a lamp, the
authorities shall test 20 luminaires as lamps. If the model of the luminaire is considered to comply, the model(s)
of the LED module(s) shall be considered to comply with the requirements laid down in this Regulation. If the
model of the luminaire is considered not to comply, the model(s) of the LED module(s) shall be considered not to
comply either.
(2) Otherwise, if the technical documentation file of the luminaire allows for the removal of the LED module(s) for
testing, the authorities shall obtain enough luminaires to obtain 20 copies of each incorporated LED module
model. They shall follow the instructions of the technical documentation file to dismantle the luminaires and test
each LED module model separately. The conclusion regarding the compliance of the model(s) of the LED
module(s) shall follow from the test(s).
(3) Otherwise, if according to the technical documentation file of the luminaire, the luminaire manufacturer obtained
the incorporated LED module(s) as individual CE marked product(s) from the Union market, the authorities shall
obtain 20 copies of each LED module model from the Union market for testing and test each LED module model
separately. The conclusion regarding the compliance of the model(s) of the LED module(s) shall follow from the
test(s). If the model(s) are not available any more on the Union market, market surveillance cannot be performed.
(4) Otherwise, if the luminaire manufacturer did not obtain the incorporated LED module(s) as individual CE marked
products from the Union market, the authorities shall request the luminaire manufacturer to deliver a copy of the
original test data of the LED module(s) showing that the LED module(s) comply with the requirements applicable
to:
— all LED modules in Table 5 of this Regulation,
— if they are directional LED modules, in Tables 1 and 2 of this Regulation,
— if they are non-directional LED modules, in Tables 1, 2 and 3 of Regulation (EC) No 244/2009.
If according to the test data, any of the LED module model(s) in the luminaire do not comply with the
requirements, the model(s) of the LED module(s) shall be considered not to comply.
Otherwise, the authorities shall dismantle a single luminaire to check that the LED module(s) in the luminaire are
the same type as described in the test data. If any of them is different or cannot be identified, the model(s) of the
LED module(s) shall be considered not to comply.
Otherwise, the switching cycles, premature failure, starting time and warm-up time requirements of Table 5 shall
be tested on another luminaire operated at its rating. During operation of the luminaire at its rated values, the
temperature of the LED module(s) shall be also tested against the defined limits. If the results of the tests (other
than on premature failure) vary from the limit values by more than 10 %, or the luminaire failed prematurely,
three more luminaires shall be tested. If the averages of the results of the subsequent three tests (other than those
relating to premature failure and to operating temperature) do not vary from the limit values by more than 10 %,
none of the luminaires failed prematurely, and the operating temperature (in °C) is within 10 % of the defined
limits in all three of them, the model(s) of the LED module(s) shall be considered to comply with the require
ments. Otherwise, they shall be considered not to comply.
(5) If testing according to points (1) to (4) is not possible because no independently testable LED modules can be
distinguished in the luminaire, the authorities shall test the switching cycles, premature failure, starting time and
warm-up time requirements of Table 5 on a single luminaire. If the results of the tests vary from the limit values
by more than 10 %, or the luminaire failed prematurely, three more luminaires shall be tested. If the averages of
the results of the subsequent three tests (other than those relating to premature failure) do not vary from the limit
values by more than 10 %, and none of the luminaires failed prematurely, the model(s) of the LED module(s)
incorporated into the luminaire shall be considered to comply with the requirements laid down in this Regulation.
Otherwise, they shall be considered not to comply.

3. VERIFICATION PROCEDURE FOR EQUIPMENT DESIGNED FOR INSTALLATION BETWEEN THE MAINS AND THE
LAMPS
Member State authorities shall test one single unit.
The equipment shall be considered to comply with the requirements laid down in this Regulation if it is found to
comply with the compatibility provisions of point 2.3 of Annex III, applying state-of-the-art methods and criteria for
assessing compatibility, including those set out in documents whose reference numbers have been published for that
purpose in the Official Journal of the European Union. If non-compatibility is concluded, the model shall still be
considered to comply if it fulfils the product information requirements in point 3.3 of Annex III or in Article 3.2
of Delegated Regulation (EU) No 874/2012.
In addition to the compatibility requirements, lamp control gear shall also be tested for the efficiency requirements in
point 1.2 of Annex III. The test shall be carried out on a single piece of lamp control gear, not on a combination of
several pieces of lamp control gear, even if the model is designed to rely on other pieces of lamp control gear to
operate the lamp(s) in a given installation. The model shall be considered to comply with the requirements if the
results do not vary from the limit values by more than 2,5 %. If the results vary from the limit values by more than
2,5 %, three more units shall be tested. The model shall be considered to comply with the requirements if the average
of the results of the subsequent three tests does not vary from the limit values by more than 2,5 %.
In addition to the compatibility requirements, luminaires intended to be marketed to end-users shall also be checked
for the presence of lamps in their packaging. The model shall be considered to comply if no lamps are present or if
the lamps that are present are of the energy classes required in point 2.3 of Annex III.
In addition to the compatibility requirements, dimming control devices shall be tested with filament lamps when the
control device is in the minimum dimming position. The model shall be considered to comply if, when installed
according to the manufacturer’s instructions, the lamps provide at least 1 % of their luminous flux at full load.
If the model does not fulfil the applicable compliance criteria referred to above, it shall be considered not to comply.
