The industry association Lighting Europe has published a guidance document for the EL and ED regulations for lighting. Has this document been endorsed by the Commission?

Lighting Europe developed their guidance document on their own and asked the Commission to check draft versions of the document for correctness. While no factual mistakes seem to be apparent, the Commission cannot and will not approve or validate such guidance document. The Commission does not acknowledge or endorse any guidance document by third parties, and therefore stresses that these do not allow any legally binding interpretation.

Disclaimer: Please note that the European Commission cannot provide a legally binding interpretation of the EU legislation, as this is the sole competence of the European Court of Justice. Any remarks from the European Commission services are without prejudice to the position the Commission might take should related cases arise in a procedure before the Court of Justice.
