Intertek Launches Horticultural Lighting Certification ProgramIntertek’s Horticultural Lighting Certification Program, the first of its kind in the industry, will leverage the company’s lighting expertise to help manufacturers develop innovative, high-performance products for an emerging industry.

Horticultural luminaires, or grow lights, are installed in horticultural applications, either above or within the canopy. These products require additional safety and performance testing given the unique environmental conditions they are subjected to, such as high temperature, high humidity and elevated corrosive elements.

Intertek’s program incorporates current requirements for general lighting and takes into consideration requirements still in development. Intertek also recommends specific performance testing to accompany the safety analysis. As standards for horticultural applications are established, they will be integrated into the program.
