As in most industries, a handful of key standards and regulations exist in the lighting industry to help consumers make educated buying decisions.
We discussed this recently on this blog when we explained the importance of ENERGY STAR certified lighting products.
Another important certification: DLC.
Maybe you've seen that label around – "DLC listed" or "DLC approved."
What does that mean and how is that designation handed out?
DLC stands for DesignLights Consortium, and if a lighting product has earned certification from that organization, it signals a high level of energy efficiency.
