Project duration:

2 Months from initial enquiry to completion


UK importer of a range of domestic / commercial lighting equipment.

Project summary:

The UK importer was hoping to import a range of lighting products sourced from several manufacturers based in the Far East, and requested Conformance to review 5 samples of different types and to provide a report on the issues identified and guidance on the need for further testing and investigation.

Applicable Directives:

Low Voltage Directive (LVD), Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) Directive, Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) Directive, Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Directive

What we did:

  • Reported on the Directives applicable to the range of products.
  • Evaluated each sample with a particular focus on safety aspects, including the design, construction, components, mechanical strength and access to live parts.
  • Reported on the nature and scale of the non-compliances discovered.
  • Recommended next steps and provided advice on an appropriate course of action for future products.

What the customer did:

  • Acted on our report, i.e. did not proceed to import non-compliant products.

Final outcome:

The client was able to avoid importing unsafe products and obtained clear advice on the applicable directives and what documentation to request from their suppliers.
