CFLs Contain Mercury – Response from EECA

Carolyn at EECA kindly acknowledged receipt of my submission.  Refer to my 28 February post for a copy of the submission.

Here is Carolyn’s response:

Dear Anthony,
Thank you for your submission – I have made a note of your concerns around Mercury content in CFL’s, and the use of subsidies to promote CFL’s.
These Standards are aiming to improve the quality of CFL’s in the marketplace – they are not designed to limit consumer choice in any way.  You may have noted that one of the quality measures we are proposing is a maximum mercury content for all CFL’s. Currently there are no maximum levels.
Kind regards,
