Accreditation endows our measurements and reports with reliability and authority.  Without accreditation, it is for example not possible to use a luminous efficacy test to apply for subsidies to finance the purchase of LED lighting. Only tests performed by an accredited testing agency can be used for this purpose.

European Light Institute is in progress to appl for accreditation from the Dutch Accreditation Council and expects to be accredited in the beginning of 2015.
