Title: Test Procedure for General Service Fluorescent Lamps, General Service Incandescent Lamps, and Incandescent Reflector Lamps 

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) proposes to amend the test procedures for general service fluorescent lamps (GSFLs), general service incandescent lamps (GSILs), and incandescent reflector lamps (IRLs) consistent with the Energy Policy and Conservation Act (EPCA), as amended. DOE proposes amendments to update to the latest versions of the referenced industry test standards and provide citations to specific sections of these standards; to clarify definitions, test conditions and methods, and measurement procedures; to clarify test frequency and inclusion of cathode power in measurements for GSFLs; to provide a test method for measuring  color rendering index of GSILs and IRLs and for measuring lifetime of IRLs; to allow manufacturers to make voluntary (optional) representations of GSILs at high frequency settings; to revise the sampling requirements; and to align sampling and certification requirements with proposed test procedure terminology and with the Federal Trade Commission’s labeling program.
