What you need to know about
New Federal Requirments.

Incandescents & Halogen Reflector Lamp Products:

A-Type Incandescent Lamps will begin to be phased out due to federal minimum efficiency standards starting with 100W lamps in January 2012, continuing with 75W lamps the following year, and 60 & 40W lamps the year after. Because most incandescents will not be able to meet the new standards they will eventually disappear from the market.

Standard PAR Halogens face a similar fate as incandescents starting in July 2012.

Under the same legislation described above, most PAR, BR, and ER-type lamps will go away. Again, this is due to the product's general inability to meet the new stricter efficient guidelines. Some of these lamps will remain but they are likely to be the more expensive gas mixtures or IR capsule containing models. There are a few exemptions based on wattage and lamp size, however these exemptions will likely be removed by a current bill worming its way through congress.

General Service Fluorescent Lamps:

Broadly speaking, the majority of T10 & T12 lamps will begin leaving the market by July 2012, as they are unable to meet the new federal minimum efficiency guidelines. Certain high CRI and color lamps will remain. Other specialty lamps also will be exempt from these guidelines, but likely will be further addressed by emerging legislation.
T12 Magnetic ballasts may be imported through June 2010 and Manufacturers can sell them through September 2010. Distributors (that's us) can still sell these ballasts for some time after the September deadline.

High Intensity Discharge Products:

As of January 2009 magnetic ballasted probe start Metal Halide systems may no longer be used in new fixtures with few exceptions.
Mercury Vapor ballasts cannot be produced or imported as of January 2008, the lamps may continue to be sold and can instead be used with an appropriate standard, non-pulse start, Metal Halide ballast. Many MH ballasts are rated for Mercury Vapor lamps and include the equivalent codes for easy reference. It is likely that Mercury Vapor lamps will be completely phased out in January 2016 due to emerging regulation.

Other Potentially Affected Products:

New efficiency requirements will also go into effect for double-ended quartz halogen lamps in January 2016, and at that time may limit offerings as the number of products able to meet the standards are likely to be fewer than the total number we carry.
