DOE Lighting Facts Label Program Shutting Down; FTC Labels Still Required

The DOE issued a reminder the it is gradually ending the Lighting Facts Label program. However, the FTC requirement for having FTC labels on general service lamps are still required.

The U.S. Department of Energy’s Lighting Facts Label program is shutting down in stages. As of March 1, 2018, the DOE stopped accepting new Lighting Facts products. On June 1, 2018, the website will close and will only be available for account level tools and database searches. The DOE pointed out that as always, the database search results can be downloaded in spreadsheet form.

The end of DOE’s program DOES NOT affect the existing consumer Lighting Facts labels that the FTC Rules require. Therefore, FTC still rules demand the FTC labels appear on packages for general service lamps and specialty consumer lamps. For more details, see the Frequently Asked Questions for the FTC Lighting Facts label.
