In 2012 the export LED the biggest obstacle
guangdong province pledges inspect bureau to WTO/TBT center recently reported, according to the United States, the European Union and other countries and regions on the directional lights and LED lighting products into countries put forward the energy conservation and environmental protection, ecological design, energy efficiency label, testing, inspection, etc, more and more strict requirements. Semiconductor lighting industry in guangdong province, director of the center for joint innovation SuiShiRong calls for enterprises to improve international quality products at the same time, through the global certification standard system modeling, first response to the global technical barriers to trade. Technical barriers to trade has become the biggest obstacle to LED lighting products in China's exports. Dilemma: guangdong LED enterprise cost or in Europe and the United States as the world's important LED application base, high requirement of technology and safety standards of the technical barriers, is the guangdong LED export enterprises. Guangdong province pledges inspect bureau to WTO/TBT center recently reported, according to the European Union, the United States, Chile, Uganda and other countries and regions on the directional lights and LED lighting products into countries set a higher threshold. For directional lights and LED lighting products to enter the proposed energy conservation and environmental protection, ecological design, energy efficiency label, testing, inspection, performance, security, size, weight, shape, etc, more and more strict requirements. Such as, the eu energy efficient requirements are put forward for directional lights and LED lights. The notification regulations, only energy efficiency index reaches 0. More than 2 LED lights and directional fluorescent light to enter the eu market, efficiency improved 2 than before. Five times, is the national standard of 2 in our country. 2 times. By the estimate, according to the requirements of energy efficiency, as a direct result of the LED lamp production cost increase by more than 20%, will bring in guangdong province LED enterprises more than one hundred million yuan of additional costs. In addition to the requirements of energy efficiency, to enter the directional light and LED lamps and lanterns product conformity assessment, the market is becoming more and more demanding regulatory inspection procedures, will bring huge test cost. Again, such as, the notification LED lamp test program in the United States, according to preliminary estimates, if an enterprise is equipped with the corresponding testing laboratory and testing equipment as required, you will need to spending about $350000, plus annual operation, equipment maintenance in the laboratory and laboratory staff pay pay costs 100000 yuan. LED more than 3000 enterprises in guangdong province, and most of the enterprise products are exported to the United States. The report LED test program, the United States alone will bring LED export enterprises in guangdong province more than $2 billion in extra costs. Suggestion: through the global certification system first modeling guangdong province is the largest LED lamps and lanterns of production, and export big province. In 2011 in guangdong province LED output value reached 150 billion yuan, accounted for 70% of the country, 50% of the world, and rising at an annual rate of doubling. The United States and the European Union is the province of LED products are mainly exported to countries and regions. In 2011 guangdong LED lamps and lanterns of export sales of more than 340 one hundred million yuan, more than 20% higher than in 2010, almost a quarter of the total output value of guangdong LED lamps and lanterns. Among them, the exports of the United States and the European Union is about 22 billion yuan, accounting for around two-thirds of exports guangdong LED lamps and lanterns, 15% of the total output value of guangdong LED lamps and lanterns. How to break the technical barriers to trade? The national center for quality inspection of lamps and lanterns, Guangdong) As well as representatives of guangdong 15 LED lamps and lanterns of leading enterprises and experts recently held in zhongshan seminar, they think, first of all, we should use the WTO/TBT agreement under the coordination mechanism, such as Europe and the United States adopt the appraisal opinions of guangdong province. To do this, they combined directly to Europe and the United States such as reflection, demanded that the americans refer to IEC ( The international electrotechnical commission) And the current practice of other WTO members, to simplify the test environment and test requirements, reduce the amount of test samples and the number of tests, shorten the test time length, in order to reduce product testing for the LED lamps and lanterns of the burden of production enterprises, to avoid foreign LED lighting products to the U. S. market cause unnecessary trade barriers. At the same time, request the eu will decrease the minimum energy efficiency requirements for directional lights and LED lights, and then according to the requirements of the implementation of the delayed more than 1 year, in order to better adapt to the enterprise brought about by the changes of laws and regulations. Their advice at the same time, more to deal with foreign technical barriers to trade policy and financial support, especially for the LED core technology r&d. SuiShiRong calls for enterprises to improve international quality products at the same time, through the global leading certification standard system modeling, strengthen the standardization of LED products, international standards and advanced foreign standards can be converted to local standards in guangdong province, the construction standard system in line with international standards of LED products, make the province LED products meet the technical requirements of the international market, dealing with the global technical barriers to trade.
