Your Guide to Next Month’s EU Bulb Ban

September 1, 2018, the sixth stage of the so-called ‘bulb ban’ will see another tranche of light sources outlawed in the European market. Since the autumn of 2009 energy-inefficient lamps have gradually disappeared from the market in accordance with a European directive. For retailers and producers there are more changes from this year when the next stage of the halogen lamp ban comes into force. After that date the relevant products may no longer be put into circulation in the UK or anywhere else in the EU. The ban mainly covers the popular classic halogen light bulbs that are typically made of glass, emit light all round, have an E27 or E14 screw base and are operated without a transformer.
