TÜV SÜD has joined LED Lighting Facts which is a voluntary pledge program sponsored by the US Department of Energy (DOE), to assure that LED lighting products are represented accurately in the market.
And LED Lighting Facts only accepts test reports from Testing Laboratory Partners on the Approved Testing Laboratories list, starting June 1, 2012.
TÜV SÜD America, baked by the global TÜV SÜD organization, has been approved to supply manufacturers with the data they need to submit for the LED Lighting Facts program.
Testing Laboratory Partners can be certified for testing in between one and four categories: LM-79, total flux and color, LM-79, intensity distribution, in-situ temperature measurement testing and LM-80 testing. And TÜV SÜD is approved in these first three categories.
