COMMISSION REGULATION (EC) No 245/2009

of 18 March 2009

implementing Directive 2005/32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council with regard to ecodesign requirements for fluorescent lamps without integrated ballast, for high intensity discharge lamps, and for ballasts and luminaires able to operate such lamps, and repealing Directive 2000/55/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council

(Text with EEA relevance)

THE COMMISSION OF THE EUROPEAN COMMUNITIES,

Having regard to the Treaty establishing the European Community,

Having regard to Directive 2005/32/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 July 2005 establishing a framework for the setting of ecodesign requirements for energy-using products and amending Council Directive 92/42/EEC and Directives 96/57/EC and 2000/55/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (1), and in particular Article 15(1) thereof,

After consulting the Ecodesign Consultation Forum,

Whereas:

(1)

Under Directive 2005/32/EC ecodesign requirements shall be set by the Commission for energy using products representing significant volumes of sales and trades, having significant environmental impact and presenting significant potential for improvement in terms of their environmental impact without entailing excessive costs.

(2)

Article 16(2) second indent of Directive 2005/32/EC provides that in accordance with the procedure referred to in Article 19(3) and the criteria set out in Article 15(2), and after consulting the Ecodesign Consultation Forum, the Commission shall as appropriate introduce an implementing measure on tertiary sector lighting products.

(3)

The Commission has carried out two preparatory studies which analysed the technical, environmental and economic aspects of lighting products typically used in the tertiary (office lighting and public street lighting) sector. The studies have been developed together with stakeholders and interested parties from the Community and third countries, and the results have been made publicly available on the EUROPA website of the European Commission.

(4)

Mandatory ecodesign requirements apply to products placed on the market wherever they are installed, therefore such requirements cannot be made dependent on the application in which the product is used (such as office lighting or public street lighting). Therefore this Regulation should address specific products, such as fluorescent lamps without integrated ballast, high intensity discharge lamps, and ballasts and luminaires able to operate such lamps. Indicative benchmarks can be helpful in guiding users on the best available technology for specific applications (such as office or public street lighting).

(5)

Products subject to this Regulation are meant to be used essentially for general lighting purposes, meaning that they contribute to the provision of artificial light replacing natural light for the purposes of normal human vision. Special purpose lamps (such as lamps used in computer screens, photocopiers, tanning appliances, terrarium lighting and other similar applications) should not be subject to this Regulation.

(6)

The environmental aspects of the EuPs covered that are identified as significant for the purposes of this Regulation are:

(a)

energy in the use phase;

(b)

mercury content of lamps.

(7)

The annual electricity consumption related to products subject to this Regulation in the Community has been estimated to be 200 TWh in 2005, corresponding to 80 Mt CO2 emissions. Without taking specific measures, the consumption is predicted to increase to 260 TWh in 2020. The preparatory studies showed that electricity consumption of products subject to this Regulation can be significantly reduced.

(8)

Mercury content of the installed base of lamps has been estimated to be 12,6 tons in 2005. Without taking specific measures, the mercury content of the installed lamp base is predicted to increase to 18,6 tons in 2020 while it has been demonstrated that it can be significantly reduced.

(9)

In the absence of internationally agreed scientific methods for measuring its environmental impact, the significance of the so-called ‘light pollution’ could not be assessed. However it is accepted that measures developed for increasing the lighting efficacy of tertiary lighting equipment can have a positive impact on ‘light pollution’.

(10)

Improvements of electricity consumption of products subject to this Regulation should be achieved by applying existing non-proprietary cost effective technologies, which lead to a reduction of the combined expenses for purchasing and operating equipment.

(11)

Ecodesign requirements for products subject to this Regulation should be set with a view to improving the environmental performance of the products affected, contributing to the functioning of the internal market and to the Community objective of reducing energy consumption by 20 % in 2020.

(12)

This Regulation should increase the market penetration of technologies yielding improved energy efficiency for products subject to this Regulation, leading to estimated energy savings of 38 TWh in 2020, compared to a business as usual scenario.

(13)

The setting of energy efficiency requirements for lamps subject to this Regulation will lead to a decrease of their overall mercury content.

(14)

The ecodesign requirements should not have negative impact on the functionality of the product and should not negatively affect health, safety or the environment. In particular, the benefits of reducing the electricity consumption during the use phase should over-compensate potential, if any, additional environmental impacts during the production phase of products subject to this Regulation.

(15)

A staged entry into force of the ecodesign requirements should provide a sufficient timeframe for manufacturers to redesign products subject to this Regulation as appropriate. The timing of the stages should be set in such a way that negative impacts related to functionalities of equipment on the market are avoided, and cost impacts for end-users and manufacturers, in particular small and medium enterprises, are taken into account, while ensuring timely achievement of the objectives of this Regulation. The revision according to Article 8 should, inter alia, verify whether the performance requirement of ballasts for HID lamps in Annex III Section 2.1.C will be achievable eight years after this Regulation has entered into force.

(16)

The removal of replacement lamps from the market should be planned taking into account impacts on the end-users. Member States could impose higher requirements on lighting installations.

(17)

Measurements of the relevant product parameters should be performed taking into account the generally recognised state of the art measurement methods; manufacturers may apply harmonised standards set up in accordance with Article 10 of Directive 2005/32/EC.

(18)

In conformity with Article 8 of Directive 2005/32/EC, this Regulation should specify that the applicable conformity assessment procedures are the internal design control set out in Annex IV to Directive 2005/32/EC and the management system for assessing conformity set out in Annex V to Directive 2005/32/EC.

(19)

In order to facilitate compliance checks manufacturers should provide information in the technical documentation referred to in Annexes V and VI to Directive 2005/32/EC in so far as this information relates to the requirements laid down in this Regulation.

(20)

In addition to the legally binding requirements, the identification of indicative benchmarks for best available technologies for products subject to this Regulation should contribute to ensuring wide availability and easy access to information. This is particularly useful for small and medium enterprises and very small firms, as it further facilitates the integration of best design technologies for improving the life cycle environmental performance of products subject to this Regulation.

(21)

Although the mercury content of fluorescent and high intensity discharge lamps is considered to be a significant environmental aspect, it is appropriate to regulate it under Directive 2002/95/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), which covers also the lamp types exempted from this Regulation.

(22)

Directive 2000/55/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 September 2000 on energy efficiency requirements for ballasts for fluorescent lighting (3) is an implementing measure of Directive 2005/32/EC and has an ongoing effect on the installed ballast base, due to long luminaire and magnetic ballast lifetimes. However, there is further improvement potential, and more demanding minimum energy efficiency requirements as compared to Directive 2000/55/EC would be appropriate. Directive 2000/55/EC should therefore be replaced by this Regulation.

(23)

The measures provided for in this Regulation are in accordance with the opinion of the Committee established by Article 19(1) of Directive 2005/32/EC,

2.   REQUIREMENTS ON BALLASTS FOR FLUORESCENT LAMPS WITHOUT INTEGRATED BALLAST AND BALLASTS FOR HIGH INTENSITY DISCHARGE LAMPS

2.1.   Ballast energy performance requirements

Multiwattage ballasts shall comply with the requirements below according to each wattage on which they operate.

A.   First stage requirements

One year after this Regulation comes into force:

 

The minimum energy efficiency index class shall be B2 for ballasts covered by table 17 in Annex III.2.2, A3 for the ballasts covered by table 18, and A1 for dimmable ballasts covered by table 19.

 

At the dimming position corresponding to 25 % of the lumen output of the operated lamp, the input power (Pin) of the lamp-ballast circuit shall not exceed:

Pin < 50 % * PLratedballast

Where PLrated is the rated lamp power and ηballast is the minimum energy efficiency limit of the respective EEI class.

 

The power consumption of the fluorescent lamp ballasts shall not exceed 1,0 W when operated lamps do not emit any light in normal operating conditions and when other possible connected components (network connections, sensors etc.) are disconnected. If they cannot be disconnected, their power shall be measured and deducted from the result.

2.2.   Product information requirements on ballasts

Manufacturers of ballasts shall provide at least the following information on free-access websites and in other forms they deem appropriate for each of their ballast models. That information shall also be affixed in a distinct and durable form to the ballast. It shall also be contained in the technical documentation file drawn up for the purposes of conformity assessment pursuant to Article 8 of Directive 2005/32/EC.

A.   First stage requirements

One year after the entry into force of this Regulation:

for ballasts for fluorescents lamps, an energy efficiency index (EEI) class shall be provided as defined below.

‘Energy efficiency index’ (EEI) means a classification system of ballasts for fluorescent lamps without integrated ballasts in classes according to efficiency limit values. The classes for non-dimmable ballasts are (in descending order of efficiency) A2 BAT, A2, A3, B1, B2 and for dimmable ballasts A1 BAT and A1.

Table 17 contains the EEI classes for ballasts which are designed to operate the lamps mentioned in the table or other lamps which are designed to be operated by the same ballasts as the lamps mentioned in the table (meaning that the data of the reference ballast is equal).

Luminaires have an optical system that has an ingress protection rating as follows:

IP65 for road classes ME1 to ME6 and MEW1 to MEW6

IP5x for road classes CE0 to CE5, S1 to S6, ES, EV and A

The proportion of the light emitted by an optimally installed luminaire going above the horizon should be limited to:

Table 25

Indicative maximum Upward Light Output Ratio (ULOR) values per road class for street lighting luminaires (at benchmark level)

Road classes ME1 to ME6 and MEW1 to MEW6, all lumen outputs

3 %

Road classes CE0 to CE5, S1 to S6, ES, EV and A:

 

12 000 lm ≤ light source

5 %

8 500 lm ≤ light source < 12 000 lm

10 %

3 300 lm ≤ light source < 8 500 lm

15 %

light source < 3 300 lm

20 %

In areas where light pollution is of concern, the maximum proportion of the light going above the horizon is not more than 1 % for all road classes and lumen outputs.

Luminaires are designed so that they avoid emitting obtrusive light to the maximum extent. However, any improvement of the luminaire aiming at reducing the emission of obtrusive light is not to the detriment of the overall energy efficiency of the installation for which it is designed.

If they are luminaires for fluorescent or high-intensity discharge lamps, they are compatible with at least one lamp type complying with the benchmarks of Annex V.

Luminaires are compatible with installations equipped with appropriate dimming and control systems that take account of daylight availability, traffic and weather conditions, and also compensate for the variation over time in surface reflection and for the initial dimensioning of the installation due to the lamp lumen maintenance factor.
