The EU Scientific Committee on Health, Environment and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) has published on 19 July 2017, a Preliminary Opinion on potential risks to human health of Light Emitting Diodes.

This is a draft report with the intention to enable interested parties to provide additional scientific input and/or clarification until 17 September 2017.

“LightingEurope welcomes the conclusion by the Committee that there is no evidence of direct adverse health effects from LEDs in normal use by the general population. One of the key objectives of LightingEurope is to inform the market on good quality lighting and to support consumers in making informed choices”, says Ourania Georgoutsakou, Secretary General of LightingEurope and continues: “We welcome the initiative of SCHEER to launch a public consultation period, which gives the opportunity for interested stakeholders to provide their feedback.”

LightingEurope will be reviewing the draft report and contributing with its views and proposals during the consultation process.
