LEDFlex has become latest lighting manufacturer to announce that it is supply TM66 data for its product ranges.

The Winchester-based company will post downloadable TM66 reports for each product on its website in the coming weeks.

The firm says the move is designed to ‘empower our community in making well-informed decisions regarding the products they specify.

‘Sustainability is central to LEDFlex’s core mission, driving our commitment to positive change. As leaders in premium linear lighting manufacturing, we recognize our industry’s pivotal role in fostering a circular economy’.

TM66 has gained widespread acceptance in the UK lighting industry since its launch in 2021. In the same year it won a prestigious Build Back Better Award Platinum and Green Awards for its contribution to sustainability in the built environment.

It’s a Technical Memorandum created by the Society of Light and Lighting – part of Cibse –  which provides detailed guidance on the precise definition of circular economy when it comes to luminaires.

It has two major elements, CEAM-Make and CEAM-Design. CEAM-Make – This tool is the supply-push tool for manufacturers to complete (or designers if they wish) as it requires in-depth knowledge about products and manufacture. It will be an online/Excel based tool comprised of 66 questions under four tabs – product design, manufacturing, materials and supporting ecosystem.

Each question is rated and then scored between 1-4, where 1 is status quo and 4 is outstanding.

At the end of the assessment a total is generated, and a high score indicates a lighting product with good to outstanding Circular Economy credentials.

CEAM-Design – Is the demand-pull tool – its faster to complete, containing only 20 questions relating to the same questions in CEAM-Make.

 It is aimed at lighting designers or specifiers to enable them to quickly understand what level of Circular performance a (not yet tested under CEAM-Make) product or manufacturer has. Again, at the end of the assessment a total is generated.
