In the third-quarter of 2014, a lamp sampling activity in six Southeast Asian countries was conducted with collaboration between IIEC and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). This effort was designed to strengthen and support national and regional resources for the monitoring, verification, and enforcement (MVE) of efficient lighting; these activities are essential to fostering a sustainable transition to efficient lighting.

During the project period, representatives from the six countries – Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam – had a chance to practice key MVE activities, such as taking samples of compact fluorescent (CF) and LED lamps from retailers and sending them to a third-party lighting laboratory in Beijing. These activities allowed authorities from each respective country to witness and take part in signing documents and packages necessary for maintaining the integrity of the program.
