New regulations for LED lamps from 30 June 2018 require all mains voltage (i.e. 240Va.c. rated) self-ballasted LED lamps will be re-classified as high risk and need to be certified, marked and registered before being sold in Australia. The application of this regulation to new and existing products in the market will vary by state. Product sellers including importers, wholesalers, retailers and contractors should verify that the products they sell within the Australian market meet this new regulatory requirement.
