Laboratory in Tucheng Received The Highest Standard Recognition

Everlight Electronics Co Ltd (Taiwan’s largest LED assembly manufacturer) says that its laboratory in Tucheng, Taipei has received the highest standard recognition by the US government agency Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Simultaneously, it was also qualified to use the ILAC-MRA mark - the signet for Mutual Recognition Arrangement (MRA) of the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) - on its laboratory reports.

As a result, EPA qualification allows Everlight to publish its LM-80 reports themselves as of August 2013. ISO17025 says that it is rare that companies gain both ISO17025 and LM80 certifications at the same time. There are only 81 technologically equivalent certified authorities (third-party labs and companies) in 67 countries that have achieved the ILAC-MRA status.

LM-80 testing is the main criteria for LED lighting components to ensure lumen maintenance after 6000 hours of operation. LM-80 is also an essential document to apply for Energy Star certification of a lighting product. Several Everlight Lighting LED ranges have already completed LM-80 6,000 testing so far, including low-power (PLCC 3020), mid-power (PLCC 5630), high-power (2323 and 3535) and COB (chip-on-board) LED series. Official test reports are available upon request.

In 2014, Everlight plans more LM-80 testing to demonstrate the durability and consistency of its LED lighting products and to provide quality confidence to customers.
