STANDARDS AND MEASUREMENT WORK

A number of follow-up activities are suggested in order to firm up specifications to promote market adoption:
• For consumer-directed products, there should be a short-term effort to develop standard, broad, qualitative descriptions of the degree of color shift over life.
• A working group on bulb-replacement specifications should review these recommendations and determine if other specifications are needed.
• Segment-focused specification-grade luminaire teams should determine the appropriate standard specification for individual applications.
In summary, color and color shift are among the more complex issues that need to be addressed with the introduction of LED-based replacement bulbs and luminaires. Segmenting the market into the three broad areas listed above and then identifying work-around solutions for short-term problems appears to be the best approach. In parallel, individual working groups should begin to address each segment’s requirements in more detail to develop documented standards of color shift requirements and measurements.
