BACL Receives Recognition from U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) LED Lighting Facts

BACL has been granted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DoE) LED Lighting Facts and Design Lights Consortium (DLC) Programs to perform testing for the scope of  LM 80.  

From the Lighting Facts website:
“LED Lighting Facts is a voluntary pledge program to assure that LED lighting products are represented accurately in the market. Participants pledge to use the LED Lighting Facts label to document the performance of products they manufacture, sell, distribute, or promote.

Similar to a nutrition label, the LED Lighting Facts label provides a quick summary of product performance data. By introducing transparency to the lighting supply chain, the label guards against exaggerated claims and helps ensure a satisfactory experience for lighting buyers.

Changes to ACMA (Australian Communications and Media Authority) labeling arrangements

As March 2013, the three existing compliance marks (C-Tick, A-Tick and RCM) are being consolidated into a single compliance mark—the RCM. This will indicate a device's compliance with all applicable ACMA regulatory arrangements—that is, for telecommunications, radio communications, EMC and EME—and with applicable state and territory electrical equipment safety requirements.
