The existing Ecodesign regulations which set the minimum energy performance standards for lighting products already contain an exemption which allows light-sensitive people access to non-LEDs via a medical prescription. As part of our proposals to update the minimum energy performance standards for lighting products, the Government consulted on an amendment to the exemption which would enable light-sensitive people to access non-LED lightbulbs more easily.

The Government response will be published in due course.
