With this paper, Pearle* gives input to the consultation on the revision of the ecodesign regulations.
Organisations in the live performance sector are most concerned about the revision which has an impact on stage lighting. For the time being, under Commission Regulation (EU) No 1194/2012 special purpose lights such as used on the stage in theatres, concert halls and other venues and events, the live performance sector benefit from an exemption.
Whilst employers and managers of live performance organisations are looking and investing into new ways of lighting design, they are equally concerned to continue providing the best experience for their audiences through the available technical equipment.
