Safety Compliance Guidelines for Luminaire Retrofits


Careful consideration needs to be made on the selection of a retrofit kit that will not only maintain safety but perform in accordance with the facility’s lighting requirements as well as meet the NEC (National Electrical Code) requirements.

With the growing pressure to reduce energy consumption and the rapid proliferation of retrofit kits and kit installers on the market, facility managers and AHJs need to understand certain details regarding luminaire retrofits, such as the implications of reusing existing lamp holders and identifying whether a retrofit kit is for general purpose or intended only for a specific luminaire make and model. For their part, retrofit kit purchasers and installers need to know what to look for prior to selection of a kit to determine the effort and compatibility of the kits under consideration.

This will be a comprehensive half day workshop covering the above issues in sufficient detail along with examples of products on the market to help all facility managers and installers avoid costly errors and rework.
