Marginal note:Energy-using product
  •  (1) A general service lamp is prescribed as an energy-using product.

    (2) However, a general service lamp is not considered to be an energy-using product

    • (a) for the purposes of sections 4 and 435,

      • (i) if it is a rough service lamp, a vibration service lamp, a shatter-resistant lamp or a lamp with an E26d screw base,

      • (ii) if it has a luminous flux of less than 1 050 lm and was manufactured before December 31, 2014, or

      • (iii) if it has a luminous flux of at least 1 050 lm and was manufactured before January 1, 2014; and

    • (b) for the purposes of sections 5 and 425 to 429, if it was manufactured before September 1, 2008.

Marginal note:Energy efficiency standards
  •  (1) The energy efficiency standards set out in column 2 of the table to this section apply to general service lamps described in column 1 that are manufactured during the periods set out in column 3.

  • Marginal note:Testing standard

    (2) A general service lamp complies with the energy efficiency standard if it meets that standard when tested in accordance with testing procedures that are applicable to a general service lamp as defined in section 433 and set out in the following standards:

    • (a) IES LM45 for the nominal power;

    • (b) IES LM49 for the life of the product; and

    • (c) CIE 13.3 for the colour rendering index.

  • Marginal note:Adjusted testing procedure

    (3) The testing referred to in subsection (2) must, despite any provision to the contrary in the identified standard, be conducted with the lamp operating at 120 V regardless of its nominal voltage.

    • (ii) its luminous flux, expressed in lumens, or if it is a three-way lamp, its luminous flux, expressed in lumens, at each operating level; and

  • (e) its life, expressed in hours, collected in accordance with IES LM49, with the testing procedure adjusted in accordance with subsection 435(3).

SUBDIVISION CModified Spectrum Incandescent Lamps

Marginal note:Definition of modified spectrum incandescent lamp
  •  (1) In this Subdivision, modified spectrum incandescent lamp means a modified spectrum lamp that has a luminous flux of at least 232 lm but not more than 1 950 lm, a nominal voltage of at least 110 V but not more than 130 V or a nominal voltage range that lies at least partially between those voltages, and a screw base. It does not include any of the following:

    • (a) an appliance lamp;

    • (b) a CFL;

    • (c) an infrared lamp;

    • (d) a lamp that has a G-shape as specified in ANSI C78.20 and ANSI C79.1 and a diameter of 12.7 cm or more;

    • (e) a lamp that has a T-shape as specified in ANSI C78.20 and ANSI C79.1 and a maximum nominal power of 40 W or a length of more than 25.4 cm or both;
