|Legal References:||COM(99)296 - Energy Efficiency Requirements for ballast for fluorescent lighting|
In a preliminary vote, the assembly approved proposals from the European Commission for a two-stage sequence of reductions in maximum allowable power consumption in strip lighting, leading eventually to a 10 percent reduction in total EU electricity consumption of fluorescent lighting (Commission document COM 296, published in the Official Journal of the European Communities, No. C 274, September 28, 1999). In granting its approval, Parliament proposed that a first round of limits be imposed after the draft directive was adopted, and that a second round would follow 4 years after enactment. The Parliament and the Commission differ on elements of a third phase of limits.
