Regulatory Framework

The lighting sector has become flooded with replacement LED gear trays. It is vital that the legal framework is factored into your buying decision.

Regulatory framework

Helping You Meet Your Legal Obligations

We will assist you with your regulatory compliance as follows:


You can rely on Designplan to recertify, as a new product, the CE / UKCA mark of a modified luminaire.

Consumer Protection Act

To ensure you comply with the CPA, we will take on the legal responsibility for the entire modified product.

Building regulations

We will provide you with a full photometry report to ensure assessment against Part L of the building regulations.

Ingress protection

To maintain the IP rating of the modified luminaire, we will provide any new parts to the original specification. We then test and recertify.

Lighting performance

Replacement diffusers will probably be required to maximise efficiency and control glare. We will provide confirmation of the CCT and CRI of the modified luminaire to ensure quality and comfort.

LED compatibility

Some components inside products designed for fluorescent lamps contain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which can damage LEDs. We test the compatibility of all componentry installed in the modified luminaire.


You require a warranty that extends to all parts of the modified luminaire. We go a step further and will renew the 5 year warranty of your complete luminaire following a site survey. For more information about our site surveys CLICK HERE

Retrofit Site Survey

One of our technical sales team will visit your site to conduct a thorough retrofit site survey of your current lighting arrangements, and assess your premises for potential energy savings.
