1. European regulation encouraging the use of energy-saving lamps
  • In early 2008, a European Commission regulation was endorsed to progressively phase out incandescent bulbs by 2012 and switch to energy-saving lamps. The regulation is only one of the Eco-design measures adopted by the Commission targeting many more products such as consumer electronics, white goods or heating appliances.

2. International standard on optical radiation
  • The International Commission on Non-Ionizing Radiation Protection (ICNIRP) has recommended guideline levels to protect eyes and skin from exposure to optical radiation.
