The UK government department responsible for light (BEIS – Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy) has just opened public consultation on lighting sources and labelling, with a view to implementing the Eco Design regulation into UK law.
Here is the public consultation where you can provide comments:
According to BEIS, it is open to anyone they would particularly like responses from: manufacturers; importers; trade bodies; consumer groups; environmental organisations and other civil society organisations; those with an interest in energy efficiency, resource efficiency, circular economy and climate change.
This is an important opportunity to highlight the issues of light sensitivity and to impact the implementation and possibly the wording of this regulation specifically in the UK. LightAware is currently working on a position paper, which we will publish on our website early in the new year.
