Halogen Bulbs Will Be Out Of The European Union's History Stage In September!

- Aug 06, 2018-

Next month, phase six of the so-called "light bulb ban" will be introduced in the European Union, and another batch of light sources will be banned on the European market.——LED lighting


According to a European directive, high-energy lamps have gradually vanished from the market since the autumn of 2009. For retailers and producers, the next phase of the halogen lamp ban will come into effect on September 1, implying more changes.——LED lighting


After September 1st, related products may no longer be circulated in the UK or anywhere else in the European Union.——LED lighting


The ban mainly covers popular classic halogen bulbs (usually made of glass, fully luminous, with E27 or E14 screw sockets, which operate without transformers).——LED lighting


Some non directional halogen lamps with G4 and GY6.35 insert base will also be affected. After September 1, retailers can sell their surplus stock, so buyers have enough time to upgrade lighting to compatible LED lights.——LED lighting


However, the light bulb ban also makes consumers wonder, because many consumers do not know much about lighting technology.——LED lighting


According to a previous survey of the international consumer survey done by landvance, many of the people's list of purchases clearly contained outdated old technology, for example, 27% of Germans were still listing "traditional bulbs" on their shopping lists, seemingly completely unaware of the stock and special use of the light source. The EU's ban on sale has entered into force since September 2009, and shops no longer sell any traditional light source products.——LED lighting


Another surprising thing is that the demand for halogen lamps is still very strong. Since 2009, these products have been banned in phases and batches on the market, and the ban may be further accelerated.——LED lighting
