Proposal to increase the certification requirements for recessed residential LED luminaires.
The Australian and New Zealand standards committee dealing with electrical safety risk classification is proposing to increase the risk classification and certification requirements for recessed residential LED luminaires with permanently attached drivers. If the proposal is supported by the committee, the change would require these products to be certified (by a state electrical safety regulator or third-party certifier) and registered on the ERAC National Database before being placed on to the market in Australia. The test standard for these products is AS/NZS 60958.2.2.
The proposed definition excludes commercial and industrial products.
