Resources for policymakers and regulators

This section provides links to a range of materials which provide a valuable resource for policymakers and regulators when considering setting up or revising standards and labelling policies for energy efficient lighting. 


This includes the: Reports and Guides


Periodically, produces reports and guides at the request of members. Copies of those that are publically available can be downloaded via the links below.

ASEAN SHINE - Lighting materials


The ASEAN Standards Harmonization Initiative for Energy efficiency (ASEAN SHINE) is a United Nations Environment Programme-International Copper Association (UNEP-ICA) initiative implemented under the steering of the ten ASEAN Ministries of Energy. Initiated in 2013, ASEAN SHINE started with a focus on air conditioners with the ambitious objective of market transformation in favor of higher efficiency air conditioners. Following the success in this sector, ASEAN SHINE was extended in early 2016 to include lighting products under ASEAN SHINE - Lighting.


Following the same methodology adopted for air conditioners, ASEAN SHINE - Lighting has started work to harmonize ASEAN standards for efficient lighting (with priority on liner fluorescent lamps and non-directional LED) and develop a regional policy roadmap to set long-term aspirational goals in terms of Minimum Energy Performance Standards (MEPS) and market transformation (which will be followed by national policy roadmaps).
