The Lighting Global team has released a new policy that presents requirements and guidelines for performance reporting on product packaging. The policy is intended to ensure that customers have access to the necessary information to make well-informed purchasing decisions.

Going forward, every product that meets the Lighting Global Quality Standards  will need to display the following key information on the packaging:

  • light output (or brightness) in lumens
  • daily solar runtime in hours per day
  • a qualitative description of the impact of mobile phone charging on product performance, such as “mobile phone charging can reduce the daily runtime of the lights”
  • basic warranty information (this element is not new and is the same as that historically required in the Quality Standards)

For complete details and guidelines, please review the Performance Reporting Requirements policy.

If you have questions on the policy, please review the stakeholder feedback document and/or contact qa@lightingglobal.org.
