California Title 24 Building Standards​

Residential indoor and outdoor lighting technologies are regulated by Title 24 California’s Building Energy Efficiency Standards. The standards apply to new construction and major renovation of residential, single-family buildings and multi-family buildings that are three stories or less, and residential spaces in non-residential buildings. Title 24 also includes requirements for high-efficacy light sources, commonly referred to as JA8 (Joint Appendix 8).

Note that both lamps and luminaires can be JA8 certified. LEDVANCE has several lamps and luminaires certified to JA8 and listed on the CEC certified database.
