ENERGY STAR® for Lighting Products

Intertek holds both NVLAP and A2LA accreditations and can test products to the requirements set forth in the ENERGY STAR® Program

The objective of the ENERGY STAR® Program is to promote energy efficient products to consumers, while educating them of the benefits in choosing energy efficient products. This program is a voluntary partnership of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), product manufacturers, local utilities, and retailers.

The ENERGY STAR® Program has developed product specific testing guidelines that Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) and Residential Light Fixtures (RLF) must comply with in order to carry the ENERGY STAR® label. In addition, this testing must be performed by a NVLAP or A2LA accredited testing organization.

Types of testing under the ENERGY STAR® Program include:

  • Lumen Output and Efficacy Measurements
  • Rapid Cycle Stress Test
  • Starting Time and Run-Up Time
  • Measurements (CFL)
  • EMI Testing per FCC Title 47-Part 18
  • Transient Protection Testing
  • Life Testing
  • Lumen Depreciation Measurements (CFL)

Intertek also performs Electrical Safety Testing in addition to the performance requirements of the ENERGY STAR® Program.
