This part of IEC 62722 covers specific performance and environmental requirements for luminaires, incorporating electric light sources for operation from supply voltages up to 1 000 V. Unless otherwise detailed, performance data covered under the scope of this document are for the luminaires in a condition representative of new manufacture, with any specified initial aging procedures completed.
IEC 62722-1 covers requirements for luminaires to support energy efficient use and responsible environmental management to the end of life. The object of this Part 1 is to provide a set of requirements which are considered to be generally applicable to most types of luminaires. Where additional performance requirements for specific types of light source are relevant, these are specified in the IEC 62722-2 series. The IEC 62722-2 series can also cover a wider scope of performance aspects appropriate to the particular light source technology.
NOTE The structure of these performance standards also allows for the possibility of Part 3 of the IEC 62722 series to be introduced in the future should standardization of performance criteria linked to specific luminaire applications be determined as necessary (e.g. floodlighting, street lighting).
It is the intention that the requirements of this Part 1 are to be met by the provision of information and data provided by the luminaire manufacturer (or responsible vendor). Conformity is considered to be met by the provision of the requested information. Any verification of data is conducted by the measurement requirements of this document.
Semi-luminaires are not covered under the scope of this document.
For some types of luminaire (e.g. decorative or household) the provision of performance data under the scope of this document will not be appropriate.
