About the LIA

Our Mission

Our Mission is - "through collaboration - we will develop the quality, safety and performance of the UK Lighting Industry." - Steve Davies, CEO, LIA

Our Vision

‘The LIA – Lighting the pathway to Industry Expertise, Knowledge and Compliance’

Our Purpose

The Lighting Industry Association has been representing the lighting industry for over 100 years and has an established reputation for representing and assisting lighting related companies.

Recent years have seen incredible changes in lighting, how it is created and used, and those working with lighting are now a wider and more diverse group than they have ever been. Whatever your involvement may be, the LIA is here to support you and your organisation to a successful future.


The Lighting Industry Association (LIA) was created following the merger of the Lighting Association (LA) and The Lighting Industry Federation (LIF) in January 2012. Our combined experience in all things lighting dates back to 1905!
