The petitioner calls for the reversal of the planned ban on T8 fluorescent lamps with a colour rendering index of 90 or higher, which is scheduled to enter into force in 2021, pointing out that no LED replacements will be available in the foreseeable future.He claims that 6500K lamps in particular are essential in the graphics and textile sectors and warns that LED lamps, which flicker frequently, are harmful to health. Moreover, the minimal energy savings achieved would be offset by higher purchase prices.
