About LED Lighting Facts

Policies and Expectations of Partnership

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) created the LED Lighting Facts program to assure decision makers that the performance of solid-state lighting (SSL) products is represented accurately as products reach the market. Sensitive to the setbacks that plagued consumer adoption of other new technologies, DOE developed the LED Lighting Facts program to manage user expectations and prevent the exaggerated performance claims that are often prevalent with new technologies.

Becoming an LED Lighting Facts partner requires a commitment to supporting improvement of the quality of SSL products, as well as using the LED Lighting Facts labels and logos according to program guidelines. Each partner must pledge to honor this commitment and uphold program goals specific to each partner type. The LED Lighting Facts Partner policies are designed to answer partner questions about the program and clarify the expectations of partnership. The policy links address the process for becoming a partner, appropriate use of the LED Lighting Facts label and graphics and policies unique to each of the partner types. Your continued partnership and use of the LED Lighting Facts website indicates that you agree to all of the terms and conditions. The content is subject to change at any time, should the program need to adjust policies and procedures. Partners will be notified of any such changes when they occur.
