Also at the Right Light 6 Conference in Shanghai, more than 80 delegates, including IIEC, participated in a special session hosted by the Australian Greenhouse Office (AGO) covering compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs). At this session, key lighting policy makers, practitioners, manufacturers, researchers and academics from around the world participated in the discussion with the objectives to agree to the principles of harmonization and to map a route forward. The participants agreed in principle to work toward creation of a uniform test method, covering the various performance features of self-ballasted CFLs; to carry out round-robin testing of CFL performance at a range of international test laboratories; to work toward a common set of "tiers" of voluntary performance specifications for CFLs; and to work collaboratively and engage the international lighting community in this International CFL harmonization Initiative. A special web site has been set up on the APEC ESIS web site to serve as a clearinghouse for information and progress on the CFL initiative.
