Zhaga is an international industry-wide consortium for standardization of LED light engines which will enable interchangeability between products made by diverse manufacturers. As one of the first two Zhaga Test Centers and a regular member of Zhaga, DEKRA can help you get certified for Zhaga.
Zhaga standardization will greatly accelerate the adoption of LED lighting, as end users and luminaire manufacturers will be able to replace or upgrade light engines without being tied to the original manufacturer. This is good for the professional users, as they no longer need to worry about the availability of replacement products, and for LED lighting manufacturers, as the market expands and becomes more transparent. LED Lighting manufacturers have the flexibility to source their light engines from any source they like without having to redesign their products. LED Light engine manufacturers will be able to attain and exploit economies of scale as they can develop and exploit standardized products.
