- South Africa’s Department of Trade, Industry and Competition has gazetted the new minimum efficiency and safety standards of lightbulbs sold in South Africa.
- The new standards effectively means incandescent and fluorescent lightbulbs will be banned for use in the country.
The regulations will be implemented in two phase. The first phase will increase the efficiency standard of General Service lamps to 90 lumens per watt over the next three years while the second phase ramps up the efficiency standard to 105 lumens per watt after three years.
