Industry & Regulatory News, Lighting

The LIA’s new Safety Certification Scheme (LIASC) focuses on product safety and compliance.


Introduced following customer feedback from a consultation undertaken by the LIA Laboratory, the association's new LIASC Certificate, LIASC and LIASC+ Schemes have are designed to offer accessibility as well as affordability.


Fox Lux’s FXS Microwave Motion Sensor solution is the first product to have been assessed against the vigorous safety testing standards of the new scheme, and to successfully obtain LIASC Certified Status. Providing independent verification ot its manufacturer's commitment to safety compliance, the sensor solution is listed on a dedicated Product Conformity Scheme LIASC Register and can feature the LIASC Logo on marketing collateral.


Simon Fox, the company's managing director, comments: "Fox Lux is proud to receive the first LIASC Certification for its range of daylight and microwave sensors under the latest LIA Safety Certification scheme. 


"The scheme provides an opportunity to have products, the manufacturing facility and supporting documentation, independently assessed with ongoing surveillance to ensure continuous compliance. This independent assessment, combined with our 5-year warranty, will reinforce our customer’s confidence when buying from Fox Lux.


"We fully support the LIA in its quest to improve product compliance and awareness in the market, and will be submitting more controls and luminaires for assessment under the LIA and ICEL Certification schemes."
