Abstract
IEC 60968:2012 specifies the safety and interchangeability requirements, together with the test methods and conditions, required to show compliance of tubular fluorescent and other gas-discharge lamps with integrated means for controlling starting and stable operation (self-ballasted lamps), intended for domestic and similar general lighting purposes, having:

The requirements of this standard relate only to type testing. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1988, Amendment 1:1991 and Amendment 2:1999. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition.
