    There are already 2 other threads about this subject running now.

    There seems to be a halogen lamp the same size as the enlarger bulbs on the market by Philips and lamps for special purposes are exempted from the ban by this law, so there is no reason to panic.......

    Not true at all, there's already another thread started today about Enlarger lamps. They are specialist and permitted.

    Ian,

    Do you know if there is any web page detailing the EU regulations?

    Fellow member Mirko Boeddecker and supplier (Fotoimpex) who offers small production run enlarger lamps from a german manufacturer got on the issue whether opalized classic incandescent lamps specialized for enlarger use make an exception to the ban (as they could be applied for household use) this positive reply from his manufacturer:

    "14-05-09

    ...auch die Opallampen fallen in die Ausnahmeregelung:

    Sie haben spezielle Farbtemperaturen und Lebensdauer von max. 100h.

    Die Lampe ist eindeutig als Photolampe auf Kolben und Verpackung gekennzeichnet,

    zudem bringen wir das vorgeschriebene Etikett auf die Verpackung auf mit dem Symbol "nicht für den Hausgebrauch zulässig"

    Die Lampen werden von uns eindeutig als Speziallampen vermarktet..."

    I did not know that I was not the only one!

    A translation would help.

    Here's what Babel Fish did with it:

    … also the opal lamps fall into the special arrangement:

    They have special color temperatures and life span of max. 100h.

    The lamp is clearly characterized as photo lamp on pistons and packing, besides we bring the prescribed label on the packing on with the symbol "not for the domestic purposes zulässig"

    The lamps are " marketed of us clearly as special lamps…"


    So the gist of that would be: As long as they are clearly marketed as bulbs for special use, and not domestic, it appears it is ok to still sell them.
