What is the difference between New ERP/Energy Labelling Directive and the old one? 

The new ERP Directive EU 2019/2020 specifies eco-design requirements for the following products:
 (a) Light source:
 (b) Separate light source control device
These requirements also apply to light sources and separate light source control devices in combination products (eg: lighting fixtures) on the market.

1. The new version of the Energy Efficiency Labeling Directive EU 2019/2015 specifies the energy efficiency labelling requirements for light sources and light sources used in combination products.

2. The new ERP Directive EU 2019/2020 and Energy Efficiency Labeling Directive EU 2019/2015 will be implemented from December 25, 2019, and will be enforced from September 1, 2021. At that time, the old ERP Directive EC 244/2009, EC 245/2009 . EU 1194/2012 and Energy Efficiency Labelling Directive EU 874/2012 will be replaced.

The main differences between the new ERP EU 2019/2020 Directive and the old Directive:
◆ The scope of application has increased household appliances, furniture and other products with lights;

◆ The calculation of energy efficiency is changed from EEI index back to Ponmax, the factor of color rendering index is increased, and the requirement of energy efficiency is improved;

◆ Added strobe test: SVM, Pst, LM; The flicker limited has to follow: Pst LM < 1.0 and SVM < 0.4

◆ Increase the power consumption requirements of network control network standby, The standby  power needs to be within 0.5W smart lighting control and lighting sensors like KNX , Bluetooth, DALI, Zigbee.

◆ Increased the requirements of the drive energy conversion efficiency;

◆ Switch cycle test, start-up time, and warm-up time tests are deleted;

◆ Number of test samples: only 10 light sources and 3 drivers are required;

◆ The durability test is 3600 hours, of which the lighting time is 3000 hours. The test time is greatly reduced, but the requirements for the lumen maintenance rate are greatly improved.

The main differences between the new EU 2019/2015 labelling Directive and the Old Directive: 

◆  The calculation of energy efficiency level is changed from EEI index to ηTM (lm/W), which is more reasonable;
◆ The division of energy efficiency class is changed from Class A to Class G;
◆ Higher energy efficiency requirements, such as the previous Class A++ is only equivalent to the current Class E.
