This National Standard specifies safety requirements for all electrical lighting products for use in Trinidad and Tobago, including but not limited to, fluorescent lamps, tungsten filament lamps, light-emitting diode lamps (LED), seasonal and holiday decorative products and luminaires. It also specifies labelling information to be placed on the electrical lighting products as well as information to be placed on the packaging for such products.
This standard applies to electrical lighting products intended for use at either of the following nominal supply voltages:
a) 115 volts, with a relative tolerance of ± 6 %; or
b) 230 volts, with a relative tolerance of ± 6 %.
NOTE These nominal supply voltages have been declared by the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) in their publication entitled "Wiring for Light and Power". The Electricity Supply Rules made under Section 15 of the Electricity (Inspection) Act Chapter 54:72 provides for variations of six percent above or below the declared voltages.
This standard does not apply to electrical lighting products designed exclusively for industrial purposes or electrical lighting products intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, e.g. the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (caused by dust, vapour or gas). This standard does not apply to electrical appliances, accessories or components.
