Some developed countries to safeguard national basic safety, the protection of human health and safety, protecting the environment, to prevent fraud and ensure product quality grounds, through the development of technical regulations, safety standards by virtue of its leading technological advantages and strong economic set stringent conditions for market access of goods to other countries, particularly developing countries, foreign trade resulted in a greater obstacle.

The following will focus on the requirements and standards of safety, electromagnetic compatibility, performance and other aspects of LED lighting products involved to sort out and explain, in order to provide reference for domestic LED lighting industry.
