The Lighting Industry Association offers members an industry specific Quality Assurance solution. The LIAQA scheme addresses legislative and regulatory requirements specific to the lighting industry and is designed to operate as a robust standalone quality solution, or as a scheme to work in conjunction with ISO9001.
LIAQA uses a modular approach to quality assurance. Each module is focused on ‘product type’ specific requirements.
The Scheme aim is to ensure that suppliers of lighting and lighting related products have a system in place that fully addresses product compliance. LIAQA identifies the criteria for product acceptance, manufacturing process requirements, and the evidence that supports product conformity.
All modules cover the standardised requirements, where applicable, for:
- Safety (LVD, GPSD)
- ERP (EcoDesign)
- Energy labelling
- Chemicals (RoHS, REACH)
- Waste (WEEE)
LIAQA is not a product certification scheme but fully supports members who may also operate the LIA Laboratories verified scheme. Members using LIAQA for Quality Assurance have the added value of the details of their LIAQA status displayed on the LIA website.
A detailed guidance document is available with further information. All LIAQA scheme documents are available in the knowledge library.
