Due to a high volume of SSL and Hort applications, initial and comprehensive review timeframes are currently extended by 10 days each. Beginning April 11, review priority will be given to applications updating V5.0 products to V5.1, which may also impact review timeframes for all other SSL application types. Click here for more details about SSL application review timeframes, and here for more details about Hort review timeframes. Thank you for your understanding!

LUNA

Qualify a LUNA Product

The DLC qualifies LUNA products through the same application process as SSL products, for inclusion under the LUNA designation on the Solid-State Lighting QPL. Products must be marketed as and intended for one of the available product categories and meet the DLC’s LUNA Technical Requirements to be eligible for qualification under LUNA. Manufacturers must list full and complete model numbers in all application submissions.

Please review Product Eligibility, the Solid-State Lighting and LUNA Technical Requirements, and any additional testing and reporting requirements for your specific product categories to determine whether your product is eligible before submitting an application.

Applicants submitting LUNA products must use the LUNA Pre-submission Tool available on the MyDLC dashboard to generate the required luminous intensity and SPD images. This tool allows submitters to upload an .IES or .SPDX document to validate, generate, preview and download DLC-formatted luminous intensity distribution and spectral power distribution (SPD) images in .png format, which are required in the application submission process for LUNA products.

The application is evaluated against the SSL and LUNA Technical Requirements versions in effect at the time the application is submitted. Re-submissions of an application are evaluated against either the original version of the Technical Requirements, or the version in effect when the re-submission was received, at the discretion of the DLC reviewer.

The DLC reserves the right to alter or amend program policies, including Technical Requirements, such changes may result in products being removed from the QPL at the discretion of the DLC.

Please contact applications@designlights.org with any questions about submitting an application to the DLC.

The Application Process

The LUNA Application Process
