Over the last years the UK/EU has been pushing the switch to more sustainable and more energy-efficient solutions. The lighting industry is working on this remarkable shift towards connected, personalised, and increasingly efficient and circular products.

In implementing the regulation, we are promoting efficient lighting practices for the benefit of the global environment, human comfort, and the health and safety of consumers.

At LEDVANCE we already offer a wide array of efficient alternatives and are working on innovative lighting technologies to improve the product’s life circle.



Step by step, Europe is moving toward more efficient and climate-friendly lighting. Its aim is to strengthen the circular economy and provide clear, transparent and standardized information for consumers. 

The SLR and ELR regulations (Single Lighting Regulation/Energy Labeling Regulation) define the sustainability of lighting products and the labeling of their energy efficiency. In force since December 2019, the regulations are being implemented step by step.

The RoHS Directive 2011/65/EU regulates the use of mercury and other hazardous substances. It has recently been revised, with consequences for placing fluorescent lamps and compact fluorescent lamps with plug-in bases on the market in the European Economic Area.

As your strong partner, LEDVANCE will support you in implementing and complying with all regulations. As a result, you will always meet your customers’ requirements within the law. Here are the most important changes at a glance – and how LEDVANCE can help you.
