UL, a global safety science company, is hosting a workshop on the topic ‘Safety and Energy Efficiency Regulations for LED Lighting, from International to EGYPT requirements’.
The technical workshop will take place on October 29 introducing participants to the requirements for global lighting regulations and international compliance norms.
The half-day workshop is dedicated to the review of international panorama safety and energy efficiency regulations and requirements for LED lighting. It will also cover how the regulations and requirements apply in Egypt and how it affects lighting manufacturers in the country.
