The Lighting Industry Association has announced the first company to achieve certification under its Safety Certification Scheme (LIASC).
Fox Lux Emergency Lighting is the first company to achieve the certification, which was created to focus on product safety and compliance. It achieved the certification after its FXS Microwave Motion Sensor underwent rigorous safety testing to the relevant standards.
Following the testing, Fox Lux submitted the required quality information and passed the evaluations to successfully obtain the LIASC Certified Status. In return for its commitment to compliance, the ‘FXS Microwave Motion Sensor range’ is listed on the Product Conformity Scheme LIASC register and can showcase its dedicated LIASC Logo.
The Lighting Industry Association’s Safety Certification Scheme was launched after feedback from the organisation’s customers who regularly use the LIA Laboratory for safety testing. The LIA Compliance team identified a requirement of certification based solely around product safety. So the LIASC Certificate, the LIASC and the LIASC+ Schemes werelaunched to meet these requirements.
When asked why Fox Lux Emergency Lighting got involved in the scheme, Simon Fox, the company’s managing director, commented, “Fox Lux is proud to receive the first LIASC Certification for its range of daylight and microwave sensors under the latest LIA Safety Certification scheme. The scheme provides an opportunity to have products, the manufacturing facility and supporting documentation, independently assessed with ongoing surveillance to ensure continuous compliance.
“This independent assessment, combined with our 5-year warranty, will reinforce our customer’s confidence when buying from Fox Lux. We fully support the LIA in its quest to improve product compliance and awareness in the market, and will be submitting more controls and luminaires for assessment under the LIA and ICEL Certification schemes.”
