What You Need to Know about DLC Requirements V4.0

DesignLights Consortium™ is implementing the final step in the Technical Requirements Version 4.0. What does this mean for you?

Here are the two pertinent facts of the new requirements:

  1. A revision to the required efficacy levels for the “DLC Standard” classification and the “DLC Premium” classification.
  2. A transition timeline, which includes a new element of identifying products that meet the V4.0 Technical Requirements on the QPL ahead of the final de-listing, in addition to the traditional grace periods.

The implementation timeline will allow transition to the new requirements through the end of March 2017. On April 1, 2017 any product that does NOT meet the new requirements will be removed.

DLC will clearly identify products that meet the V4.0 requirements on the QPL starting early January 2017 through the end of March 2017. These products will remain on the QPL, even though they do not meet the V4.0 requirements, until April 1, 2017. As of April 1, 2017, products that do not meet the V4.0 requirements will be removed from the active QPL, and ONLY products that meet the new requirements will be considered qualified.

So, how are you going to manage all the products that are being removed from the QPL and know which ones still meet the requirements?

If you want real-time energy savings calculations, incentive estimates and program details for both custom and prescriptive measures with the click of a button – AND – access to all qualified products by type, category or SKU (INCLUDING THE NEW DLC V4.0 REQUIREMENTS) get in touch with us today.
