The Lighting Industry Association launched a Quality Assurance Award (LIAQA) in 2017. The award highlights manufacturers of lighting and lighting related products who have robust quality management systems in place to address product compliance. This award provides a mark of confidence across the industry as well as gives customers confidence in a manufacturer’s ability to consistently produce products to high standards across their entire portfolio. Tamlite is the first company to be bestowed this prestigious annual award. The LIA recognised our commitment to best practice, excellence and quality assurance.
The Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier scheme provides independent validation and recognition of a supplier's skills and services. The scheme is designed to help end users wanting to implement energy saving projects and select a trusted supplier with a proven track record in designing, supplying, implementing and commissioning energy saving projects.
What does this mean to business? As a Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier, Tamlite is able to offer the Green Business Fund to SME clients (firms with up to 250 employees). As a Tamlite customer you could receive a capital contribution of up to 15% of the project cost, up to a maximum of £5,000 (2017 data). More information on the Green Business Fund and the Carbon Trust contact us or visit the Carbon Trust website.
Under the Waste Batteries and Accumulator Regulations 2009, Tamlite Lighting is a "producer" of “industrial” batteries [nickel cadmium, and nickel metal hydride types] and is obliged to take back end of life batteries that we have supplied to any of our customers – or in certain, extraordinary cases other end users – for free of charge proper disposal.
Once the user has identified Tamlite Lighting as the supplier of the batteries they should contact Tamlite Lighting to obtain the necessary authority. Once authority is obtained please ensure that any returned batteries are returned in a safe condition with leads removed and any bare terminals insulated to prevent the risk of fire due to arcing of battery contacts.
It is the user’s responsibility for the safe return of the batteries and for any costs incurred in returning the batteries to Tamlite Lighting.
On receipt of any authorised end of life batteries Tamlite Lighting will take full responsibility for the proper disposal of the batteries via our established subcontractor Electrical Waste Recycling Group.
