Mercury Vapour Bulbs exemption now up - time to stock up?

Postby ScottD » Wed Apr 29, 2015 8:25 pm

the 2nd stage of the EU Directive is now in effect for high pressure Mercury Vapour lamps - see http://www.pwbelg.clara.net/mercury/350/index.html
Essentially means no new production or importation within the EU but OK to buy/sell/use existing stock.

Hi Ron, I'm sure that they are still being made elsewhere but it is now also illegal to import them into the EU as far as I know.
There was a 2 year exemption but that is now expired.
