IEC TS 62257-12-1:2020 establishes the framework for creating a product specification for lamps and lighting appliances to serve as the basis for evaluating quality for a particular context. Product specifications include minimum requirements for quality standards, warranty requirements, and/or performance criteria. Products are compared to specifications based on test results and other information about the product. The product specification framework is flexible and can accommodate the goals of diverse organizations and institutions. This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2015. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition.
- Annex A and Annex B were combined into a single Annex A to eliminate duplicate tables and simplify the document.
