Lighting Global Standardized Specifications Sheet Updates

Published Date

Publication Type

Beginning in 2010, Lighting Africa began releasing standardized specifications sheets (SSS) based on comprehensive Quality Test Method (QTM) results from tests carried out by third-party laboratories. The SSS program has been one of the most popular aspects of the Lighting Africa website and has been successful at informing key market actors about good quality products in a verified, comparable way.

A stakeholder feedback process was held from April to June to help inform the next version of the SSS format and policy. This document announces the final action decisions for this round of updates to the SSS. It includes a summary of the changes that were suggested during the stakeholder process and notes on whether each change will be implemented.

This document was produced by Lighting Global Quality Assurance. In February 2020, Lighting Global Quality Assurance evolved to become VeraSol, an independent program offering quality assurance services for solar energy kits and off-grid appliances.
