The U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) proposed to expand the types of lamps that are required to display the Lighting Facts Label. The Advance Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (ANPR) specifically proposes to add:
- Lower-brightness lamps (light bulbs) that are not regulated by US DOE. These are lamps below 310 lumens and 30 watts.
- “Any other lighting products (g., full color ‘tunable’ lamps with adjustable color and CCT).”
The Commission also seeks comment on whether the Rule should require lamp manufacturers to include information regarding their Lighting Facts labels with their data reports submitted to the DOE (CCMS).
The Commission also seeks comment on whether it should update the electricity cost disclosure on the Lighting Facts and ceiling fan labels to reflect recent DOE national estimates.
FTC extended its deadline to receive comments from December 27th, 2022 to January 31, 2023 (today). The full ANPR document (RIN 3084-AB15) can be viewed and downloaded here.
