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.

International Standard IEC 62722-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 34D: Luminaires, of

IEC technical committee 34: Lamps and related equipment.

This first edition cancels and replaces IEC PAS 62722-1 published in 2011 and constitutes a

INTRODUCTION

The first edition of a performance standard for luminaires (general requirements)

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 may be reasonably

expected. Information to support responsible environmental use is also included. Part 2 of the

IEC 62722-2 series will be introduced where additional performance requirements for specific

types of light source are required.

The provisions in this standard represent the technical knowledge of experts from the fields of

the luminaire industry and associated components such as lamps and controlgear.

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

standard 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 may 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 standards to be

introduced in the future should standardisation of performance criteria linked to specific luminaire applications be

determined as necessary (e.g. floodlighting, street lighting, etc.).

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 to be conducted by the measurement requirements of this standard.

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

For some types of luminaire (e.g. decorative/household) the provision of performance data

under the scope of this standard may not be appropriate.
