About DiiA:

The Digital Illumination Interface Alliance (DiiA) is the global industry alliance for DALI lighting control. We are an open, global consortium of lighting companies, and our main aim is to grow the market for lighting-control solutions based on the standardized Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) protocol.
DiiA was established in response to industry requests for an independently-verified certification program that covers the functionality specified in DALI-2, the latest version of the DALI protocol.
DALI-2 product certification by DiiA brings the promise of significantly-improved interoperability and additional functionality compared with the current DALI systems in the market.
Certified DALI-2 products are eligible to carry the DALI-2 logo, issued by DiiA, which signifies interoperability. Only certified products can carry the DALI-2 logo, and only DiiA members can certify their products.
DiiA develops the Test Specifications that allow companies to test their products for compliance with the requirements of the multi-part IEC 62386 standard or the new DiiA specifications.
DiiA was formed by seven leading lighting companies: Erco, Helvar, Insta, Lutron, Osram, Philips Lighting and Tridonic.
DiiA is an open, not-for-profit consortium.
