Ren Hongping stated, “Healthy lighting has become an important trend in the design and development of lighting products. The joint establishment of the industry’s first healthy lighting laboratory by Ningbo IPFQI and TÜV Rheinland marks a new phase in international cooperation in the fields of standardization and quality inspection. It will provide more professional and innovative testing services for lighting product manufacturers, ensuring the health and safety of lighting products and protecting consumers’ visual health.”

Gongniu floor lamps receive TÜV Rheinland visual care system certification and global eye protection certification

Concurrently, TÜV Rheinland awarded the visual care system certification to the Gongniu ML-L120A-BS floor lamp and the global eye protection certification to the Gongniu ML-L150A-AS floor lamp.

The visual care system certification is a certification service specifically launched by TÜV Rheinland for classroom and learning lighting products. TÜV Rheinland evaluated the Gongniu ML-L120A-BS floor lamp in specific usage scenarios, covering four dimensions: product basic parameters, environmental lighting impact, eye protection technology, and usage guidance, totaling 25 tests.

Meanwhile, TÜV Rheinland conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the main lighting mode and different scene modes of the Gongniu ML-L150A-AS floor lamp in the real home scenarios of the Healthy Lighting Joint Laboratory. The evaluation included four dimensions: basic performance, core lighting parameters, real scene lighting environment assessment, and eye protection technology, totaling more than 30 tests. The results showed that the product’s average illuminance, uniformity of illumination, unified glare value, color rendering index, low blue light, and no flickering all performed excellently, successfully passing TÜV Rheinland’s highest standard requirements in the lighting field—the global eye protection certification.

Jia Lei said, “We are very pleased that our floor lamp products have passed the TÜV Rheinland visual care system certification and global eye protection certification. Gongniu has always been customer-centric, technology-driven, and safety-oriented, creating products that consumers can use with peace of mind. In the lighting field, Gongniu will continue to delve deeply, adhering to solid quality while integrating eye care concepts to protect users’ health.”

As a global leading technical service provider, TÜV Rheinland has been deeply involved in the field of lamp testing and certification. Based on international applicable standards and industry common standards, starting from user scenarios, it has formulated standards for lighting products such as low blue light, no flickering, eye comfort, and global eye protection. It is committed to helping companies enhance product safety and comfort and providing professional guidance for consumers to choose high-quality products.
