Accreditation of Energy Efficiency Lighting Laboratory


This Technology Transfer Advances Jordan's

  • Nationally Determined Contribution to rationalize energy consumption and efficiency in all sectors and raise awareness about the long-term financial benefits of energy efficiency. The position is that energy-efficiency measures will have a positive impact on economic growth, technology innovation and poverty reduction. 


The Jordan Standards and Metrology Organization (JSMO) Energy Efficiency Laboratory is the first national governmental lighting lab in Jordan. Its purpose is to test the performance requirements and energy efficiency for different types of lamps to ensure the quality of lighting products entering into the Jordanian market. Attaining international accreditation for the JSMO Lighting Lab is necessary to ensure that the test results are reliable and trusted. However, the JSMO energy efficiency lighting lab is facing some obstacles and issues that require technical support including guidance on participation in proficiency tests, verification of test methods and uncertainty calculations.
