I have been asked to reply.
EC Regulation 244/2009 under the Eco-design for Energy-using Products Framework Directive sets eco-design requirements on non-directional household lamps, including when they are marketed for non-household use.
The measure effectively prevents incandescent lamps from being placed on the market over a three year period that began in September 2009; although retailers will be able to continue to sell any existing stock. As well as energy-efficient Compact Fluorescent Lamps, other non-directional lamps such as LED and halogen lamps are to remain on the market as alternatives. These are available to fit existing fittings.
