LED lumi­nary, LED lamp cer­ti­fi­ca­tion

RF EMC DEVEL­OP­MENT offers LED lumi­nary, lamp cer­ti­fi­ca­tion, LED lumi­nary, lamp Dec­la­ra­tion of Con­for­mity and LED lumi­nary, lamp CE mark­ing. This requires at least one LED lumi­nary sam­ple to carry out test­ing and LED lumi­nary doc­u­men­ta­tion (tech­ni­cal file).

Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion or Dec­la­ra­tion of Con­for­mity is manda­tory for LED lumi­nar­ies and LED lamps to enter Euro­pean Union mar­ket and to be marked. Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and Dec­la­ra­tion of Con­for­mity pro­ce­dures are dif­fer­ent in the aspect– who is car­ry­ing out the pro­ce­dure. Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is car­ried out by Euro­pean Union Noti­fied body (NB). Dec­la­ra­tion of Con­for­mity is car­ried out by man­u­fac­turer or manufacturer’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive in Euro­pean Union. It is obvi­ous that, Dec­la­ra­tion of Con­for­mity is less expen­sive (usu­ally by ~30% cheaper), than cer­ti­fi­ca­tion car­ried out by third party. Com­mon part of both pro­ce­dures is test­ing; it must be done in both cases.

RF EMC DEVEL­OP­MENT have reviewed LED lumi­nary and LED lamp cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and Dec­la­ra­tion of Con­for­mity pro­ce­dures in seven easy steps. These pro­ce­dures are also applied to other elec­tri­cal and elec­tronic equip­ment, chang­ing direc­tives and stan­dards.

LED lumi­nary, lamp cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­ce­dure:

1. It is nec­es­sary to receive at least one LED lumi­nary, lamp sam­ple (To cer­tifi­cate lumi­nary, it is nec­es­sary to carry out test­ing in ISO17025 accred­ited lab­o­ra­tory. Basi­cally, for LED lumi­nary and LED lamp two Euro­pean Union direc­tives are applied:

  • Low Volt­age Direc­tive (LVD) 2014/​35/​EC,
  • Elec­tro­mag­netic com­pat­i­bil­ity direc­tive (EMC) 2014/​30/​EC.
There­fore, LED lamp is tested in two lab­o­ra­to­ries.

2. EMC test­ing (LED lumi­nary and LED lamp is tested in elec­tro­mag­netic com­pat­i­bil­ity lab­o­ra­tory (EMC) accord­ing to fol­low­ing standards:

3. LVD test­ing (LED lumi­nary and LED lamp is tested in LVD lab­o­ra­tory accord­ing to fol­low­ing stan­dard: EN 605981 (for spe­cific lumi­nar­ies, there may be dif­fer­ent stan­dards used))

4. Tech­ni­cal file review (Tech­ni­cal infor­ma­tion is reviewed– schemat­ics, PCB draw­ings, com­po­nent list, con­struc­tion draw­ings etc.)

If upper defined steps 24 are not suc­cess­fully passed
5. Development/​troubleshooting (LED lumi­nary, lamp man­u­fac­turer receives fail­ing EMC and LVD test reports and caries out LED lumi­nary, lamp improve­ments to pass EMC test­ing and LVD test­ing and tech­ni­cal file review. RF EMC DEVEL­OP­MENT can offer help in this stage to reduce time required for LED lumi­nary cer­ti­fi­ca­tion).

6. LED lumi­nary and lamp cer­ti­fi­ca­tion (Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion is car­ried out by Euro­pean Union Noti­fied body).

7. Doc­u­men­ta­tion trans­fer to LED lumi­nary and lamp man­u­fac­turer (Doc­u­men­ta­tion includes:

  • LED lumi­nary, lamp EMC test report,
  • LED lumi­nary, lamp LVD test report,
  • LED lumi­nary, lamp tech­ni­cal file,
  • LED lumi­nary, lamp Certificate,
  • LED lumi­nary, lamp CE mark).
