Over the past 10 years, the LED Lighting Facts program has had a significant impact on the evolution and adoption of LED lighting technology and products. This “truth-in-advertising” labeling program has given buyers assurance that the performance of the LED lighting products has been independently verified.
As a valued stakeholder using LED Lighting Facts, we are reaching out to inform you that we will begin phasing out the program on March 1, 2019. Near-term impacts include:
- Manufacturers who have current subscriptions will be able to submit new products for listing and labels through March 31, 2019.
- No new subscribers will be accepted.
- Updates to products will no longer be accepted.
- Refunds will be issued to current annual subscribers and approved labs for the remainder of the subscription period by March 31, 2019.
- LED Lighting Facts website and searchable database will remain live through 2019.

Q: Can I update or re-list any of my products?
A: Updating of products will not be allowed after February 28th 2019 but you will be able to submit these “updates” as new products during the month of March if you had a valid subscription as on March 1st 2019.
Q: If I paid for monthly subscription prior to Feb. 28, 2019, will I receive a refund?

Q: If paid for an annual subscription, will I receive a refund?
