Market Mandatory Compliance
• What do we need to sell lighting products in Europe?
Low Voltage (LVD)
(2006/95/EC  2014/35/EU)
EMC Directive
(2004/108/EC  2014/30/EU)

(2011/65/EU)
• The CE marking symbolises the conformity of the product with
the applicable Community requirements imposed on the
manufacturer.
• The CE marking affixed to products is a declaration by the
person responsible that:
 the product conforms to all applicable Community provisions, and
 the appropriate conformity assessment procedures have been
completed.

Market Surveillance
 The European Commission proposed on 13 February 2013 to improve
product safety in the EU by strengthening market surveillance in the
Member States.
 Market Surveillance Minions are expensive and at a time when EU
finances are in poor shape proposals are not easily translated into
action within each member state

ENEC Mark
ENEC today is the high quality voluntary
pan-European mark for electrical products
that demonstrates compliance to
European EN safety standards
with +17,000 licences covering some
85,000 products:

luminaires and associated components, including LEDs

household appliances

IT equipment
Osram

safety transformers
Philips

couplers and connecting devices
General Electric

ENEC - Growing Certification Scheme
07/05/2013
The importance of voluntary
certification and marking
 Independent testing and certification based on European
Safety Standards via accredited testing laboratories
 Supports and Strengthens CE marking Declaration of
Conformity
 Provides ongoing product and production
monitoring thus overcoming lack of market
surveillance activities
 High quality demonstration of compliance through
discriminating product safety marking
 Provides access to other European and International
marks such as IECEE CB 12
scheme testing
The principles of the ENEC Mark

One high quality mark recognised
throughout Europe

With identification of the issuing Certification
Body (CB)

Including national differences, if any

Issued by European Certification Bodies

Open to Manufacturers world wide

Testing in Laboratories world wide,
under close control of the European
Certification Bodies

Certified products listed on freely available
website (similar to UL for 13
US/Canada)
Denotes ENEC
Certification
Via UL Demko
ISO Type-5: full certification scheme
As an ISO 17065 Type-5 scheme, ENEC ensures
compliance for the lifetime of the certification and
includes
 third party accredited testing
 third party certification
 annual factory inspection
 ongoing monitoring of products and production
 regular monitoring of the Mark in the market place

ENEC+
• Launched April 2014
• Lighting Europe and EEPCA joint activity
ensuring Lighting Market “buy-in”
• Initially covering LED Lighting Products
• Natural extension to ENEC covering
emerging performance standards
• To be eligible must already carry ENEC safety mark
(not necessarily through same CB)
• Based upon IEC/PAS standards at present which may
become EN standards eventually through CENELEC
ENEC+
• Will align with EU Ecodesign directive requirements
(e.g. 1194/2012 DIM2)
• Will align with other national regulatory bodies e.g.
Malaysia through IEC standards
• Aiming for future international harmonisation
• ENEC+ qualified testing laboratories allowed from
Europe only
• Allows inclusion of qualified manufacturer test labs
to submit data for ENEC+ to reduce costs
• Manufacturers can be anywhere
Benefits of ENEC+
• Backs up performance claims through independent
accredited certification and testing routes
(can be manufacturer)
• Allows fair comparison of performance against
other ENEC+ marked products
• Differentiates from non ENEC+ products
and can be argued as better than just CE marking
• Will allow for unified specifications for tender proposals
for large procurement activities e.g. streetlighting
• Valid for luminaires with traditional lightsources and will
be extended to other electrical products in the future
Other Applicable Documents
• PD EPRS 001 ENEC+ Requirement Sheet 001 provides
rules for ENEC+ based upon limited version of
IEC/PAS 62717 – LED modules for general lighting –
Performance.
• PD EPRS 002 ENEC+ Requirement Sheet 002 provides
rules for ENEC+ based upon limited version of
IEC/PAS 62722-1 – Luminaire Performance – General
Requirements.
• PD EPRS 003 ENEC+ Requirement Sheet 003 provides
rules for ENEC+ based upon limited version IEC/PAS
62722-2-1- Luminaire Performance – Particular

ENEC and ENEC+ Information
• EEPCA certification bodies and labs can
provide further information
• http://eepca.eu/index.php where public
documents available
Summing Up
• CE marking mandatory but open to abuse because of
self-certification and limited market surveillance
• ENEC (safety) and ENEC+(performance) provides key
advantages :
–
–
–
–
–
Independent 3rd party certification
Annual factory inspections
Ongoing surveillance
Products clearly marked and listed in open database
Single mark across Europe
• Manufacturers can differentiate their product in terms
of safety and quality in a confused marketplace
