- Jan 31, 2020-

Recently, according to the "National People's Republic of China Public Notice 2019 No. 17" issued by the State Administration of Market Supervision and Administration and the National Standardization Administration Committee, "Announcement on Approval of the Issuance of 32 National Standards, including the" Head Protective Helmet "", mandatory The national standard "Limited Energy Efficiency Values and Energy Efficiency Levels of LED Flat Panel Lights for General Lighting" was released. The specific information is as follows:


GB 38450-2019 `` Limited Energy Efficiency and Energy Efficiency Level of LED Flat Panel Lights for General Lighting ''

Release Date: 2019-12-31

Implementation Date: 2021-01-01

Competent authority: National Standardization Administration (469)

Focal unit: National Energy Foundation and Management Standardization Technical Committee (SAC / TC20)


The national standard GB 38450-2019 "Limited Energy Efficiency Values and Energy Efficiency Levels of LED Flat Panel Lights for General Lighting" is reported and implemented by TC20 (National Energy Foundation and Management Standardization Technical Committee). The competent authority is the National Standardization Management Committee.


LED flat lamp is one of the main varieties of indoor lighting products. It is a new type of lamp using LED light source and flat light. It has the characteristics of simple design, uniform illumination, comfortable and soft light, and good lighting effect. It is widely used in hotels and conferences. Rooms, factories or offices, commercial, residential or public facilities, schools, hospitals, etc. In recent years, the replacement of double-end fluorescent lamps and grille lamps by LED panel lights has accelerated significantly, and the market share has expanded significantly.


“Limited Energy Efficiency Values and Energy Efficiency Levels of LED Flat Panel Lights for General Lighting” specifies the current large and wide range of LED panel light product models, stipulates their energy efficiency levels, energy efficiency limit values and test methods. As a mandatory national standard, it will actively promote LED flat panel lights. The improvement of product energy efficiency level leads the progress of energy-saving technologies of related enterprises. It can not only provide the basis for national energy-saving policies such as the implementation of energy-saving certification, energy-efficiency labeling, and the leader system for LED flat lamps, but also for the promotion and application of semiconductor lighting technology and key projects such as upgrading and reconstruction of lighting systems It can provide support for the comprehensive advancement of products, and can also provide a basis for the quality supervision and inspection of LED flat-panel lamp products, thereby strengthening standardized market management, guiding orderly competition, and promoting the healthy development of the industry.
