LUMINAIRE PERFORMANCE –
Part 1: General requirements
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

IEC 62722-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 34D: Luminaires, of IEC technical committee

34: Lighting. It is an International Standard.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2014. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:

a) The reference to and use of the measurement methods for non-active power consumption

in accordance with IEC 63103 have been added.

b) The pictograms of Annex C have been updated to represent modern light sources.

INTRODUCTION

This part of IEC 62722 is a performance standard for luminaires (general requirements) and

acknowledges the need for defining performance data to be provided, the presentation of this

data, the basis of its measurement, and the associated tolerances that can be reasonably

expected. Information to support responsible environmental use is also included. Future Parts 2

of the IEC 62722 series can be introduced where additional performance requirements for

specific types of light sources are required. 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).

LUMINAIRE PERFORMANCE –
Part 1: General requirements
1 Scope

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.

This document covers requirements for luminaires to support energy efficient use and

responsible environmental management to the end of life. The object of this document 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.

Semi-luminaires are not covered under the scope of this document.

For some types of luminaires (e.g. decorative or household) the provision of performance data

under the scope of this document is not appropriate.

accordance with that declared by the manufacturer. The method of comparison for the

distribution shape, and limits for acceptance are given in Annex D.

The allowed photometric variations detailed shall take account of manufacturing tolerances.

When measurements are made, additional allowance for laboratory measurement uncertainty

shall also be considered.

All photometric data shall be declared for the luminaire operating at its rated supply voltage.
