Industry Leading Standard

Recently our association released the revised ANSI/PLATO FL 1 2016 Standard. It aims to improve portable light quality and packaging transparency. This standard will strengthen the portable lights industry by providing more credibility to those portable lights companies correctly using the standard and its icons.
