10 CFR 429.35 - Bare or covered (no reflector) medium base compact fluorescent lamps.
(a) Sampling plan for selection of units for testing.
(1) The requirements of § 429.11 are applicable to bare or covered (no reflector) medium base compact fluorescent lamps; and
(2) For each basic model of bare or covered (no reflector) medium base compact fluorescent lamp
(i) No less than five units per basic model must be used when testing for the efficacy, 1,000-hour lumen maintenance, and the lumen maintenance. Each unit must be tested in the base-up position unless the product is labeled restricted by the manufacturer, in which case the unit should be tested in the manufacturer specified position. Any represented value of efficacy, 1,000-hour lumen maintenance, and lumen maintenance shall be based on a sample randomly selected and tested to ensure that the represented value is less than or equal to the lower of:
(A) The mean of the sample, where:View or download PDF
(B) The lower 97.5 percent confidence limit (LCL) of the true mean divided by 0.95, where:View or download PDF
(ii) No less than 6 unique units (i.e., units that have not previously been tested) per basic model must be used when testing for the rapid cycle stress. Each unit can be tested in the base up or base down position as stated by the manufacturer.
(iii) No less than 10 units per basic model must be used when testing for the average rated lamp life. Half the sample should be tested in the base up position and half of the sample should be tested in the base down position, unless specific use or position appears on the packaging of that particular unit.
(b) Certification reports.
(1) The requirements of § 429.12 are applicable to bare or covered medium base compact fluorescent lamps; and
(2) Pursuant to § 429.12(b)(13), a certification report shall include the following public product-specific information: The testing laboratory's NVLAP identification number or other NVLAP-approved accreditation identification, the minimum initial efficacy in lumens per watt (lm/W), the lumen maintenance at 1,000 hours in percent (%), the lumen maintenance at 40 percent of rated life in percent (%), the rapid cycle stress test in number of units passed, and the lamp life in hours (h).
