Recently, there has been an explosive growth in
the popularity of LED luminaries. Like all markets
experiencing such expansion, it has attracted many
new manufacturers.Some of these have a reputation to uphold, but many do not.As such, it can be difficult for designers to differentiate good quality products from bad quality products.
This paper explores a set of standardised test methods and
performance criteria associated with LED luminaries.
Moreover, it proposes a set of questions for discussion
within the lighting community. These questions
would be used to interrogate manufacturer data
and aid with the determination of product quality.
