Training on Quality Assurance of Lighting Products

Date: September 18, 2014
Venue: Auditorium, Above Hall No. 8, Pragati Maidan, New Delhi

In addition to the national programs, several other initiatives on efficient and clean lighting at regional and international levels have been taken up to meet the demand and to provide quality lighting systems. Some such initiatives are ComAfrique - InteliZon Initiative (CII), International Commission on Illumination (CIE), Efficient Lighting Initiative (ELI), UNEP's en.lighten initiative & Lites.Asia and International Finance Cooperation (IFC) initiatives such as Lighting Global, Lighting Africa & Lighting Asia - India. However lack of quality control test laboratories, benchmarking, test standards & protocols are found to be the key issues for ensuring quality of lighting systems in on-grid and off-grid lighting.

In order to address these issues The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) and Electrical Lamps and Components Manufacturer's Association (ELCOMA) are organising a workshop on 'Quality assurance of lighting products and importance of laboratory' under 'Lighting India 2014' on 18th September 2014, 1:00PM-6:00PM at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi.
