Zhaga appoints Authorized Test Labs for Book 9

Posted on Monday April 20 2015, by Tim Whitaker

Three companies – DEKRA, VDE and UL – have been appointed as Authorized Test Labs for Zhaga Book 9, which is in the final stages of approval.

After Book 9 is approved, Zhaga members will be able to submit their products to DEKRA, UL or VDE for independent third-party testing. The test labs will evaluate the product’s compliance to the requirements of Book 9.

Book 9 defines LED light engines that comprise an LED module with a ring-shaped light-emitting surface (LES) and a separate LED driver (electronic control gear).

Once compliance with Book 9 is confirmed, the Zhaga member can apply for Zhaga certification, allowing the product to carry the Zhaga logo. All certified products are listed in Zhaga’s online Certified Products Database.
