EISA Update: Inevitable expanded definition of general service lamps
- Nov 15, 2021 7:31 pm GMT
Given the notice of proposed rulemaking (NOPR) and following comments (submission period closed on 10/18/2021), there is no doubt that the definition of general service lamps (GSL) and general service incandescent lamps (GSIL) will be expanded to include most of the previously excluded lamp types, such as reflector lamps, candelabra-base lamps, and three-way lamps. In my opinion, there are only two unknown factors based on the available information:
- How will some of the fringe exemptions work specifically around low-lumen and colored bulbs, potentially expanding or contracting slightly from the previously proposed 2017 revisions?
- When will the rule go into effect?
