The following document provides guidelines for creating Lighting Global Standardized Specification Sheets (SSS) that describe the characteristics of off-grid lighting products. The goal of the SSS is to provide clear, verifiable, and accurate information on quality and performance to potential buyers, with a focus on distributors and bulk purchasing agents.
Qualification Standards and Targets
To qualify for the SSS program, a product shall meet the Lighting Global Quality Standards with Quality Test Method (QTM) test results obtained in accordance with clause 6 (“Quality test method”) of the latest edition of International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) Technical Specification 62257-9-5.
Please note that the SSS guidelines were updated as of March 2019. Any products that started testing after December 1, 2018 will fall under the current version of Lighting Global Standardized Specification Sheets Guidelines (3.0), and products that started testing prior to December 1, 2018 will fall under the previous version (2.0).
