Due to an EU regulation, certain high-consumption fluorescent lamps may no longer be marketed as of September; however, retailers may still sell what is still in stock.

This applies to compact fluorescent lamps with integrated ballast – better known as energy-saving lamps – as well as linear halogen lamps with R7s base > 2,700 lm (equivalent to about 140 watts) and low-voltage halogen lamps. Anyone who still has such lamps in their drawer does not have to dispose of them, however, but can use them as normal.

In addition, similar to electrical appliances, the old energy label for illuminants will finally be replaced. Instead of confusing information such as “A++,” the new label will then contain classes from A to G, without plus. Customers should be able to tell at a glance whether they are buying an energy guzzler or an energy saver. A QR code is now also to provide further additional information here – including on comparative appliances. From September 1, the old and new energy labels will be visible in stores. The old one is to disappear on March 1, 2023.
