United States of America (USA/517: Metal halide lamp fixtures)
Energy conservation standards cover metal halide lamp fixtures, however, the ballast is the energy-using device regulated in the fixture. The fixture manufacturers must comply with energy conservation standards when shipping fixtures or separately shipping ballast enclosures containing ballasts. Therefore, the information here focuses on metal halide lamp fixtures and the metal halide ballasts used within those fixtures. In the 30 December 2009, issue of the Federal Register, the U.S. Department of Energy initiated the rulemaking and data collection process to establish amended energy conservation standards for certain metal halide lamp fixtures. This document announces that the period for submitting comments on the Framework Document is extended to 5 February 2010.
Final Comment Date: February, 05, 2010
