JA8 is a section of California’s 2016 Building Energy Efficiency Standards that defines requirements for high efficacy lamps and luminaires.
As of January 1, 2017, all lighting for new homes in California must be high efficacy.
Fixtures must be tested to meet JA8 requirements by approved labs and must be labeled as compliant once they have passed testing and been submitted to the state.
