Halco Product Shipment Restrictions by State

Several states have instituted bans on older lamp technology (Linear Fluorescent, CFL, HID, Incandescent) because of either an environmental impact or low efficacy impact on energy consumption.  Use the interactive map below to see a summary of current and/or upcoming state specific restrictions.  Detailed information on these bans can be found on the individual state governing body websites.  Halco Lighting Technologies has blocked the shipment of lamps to specific states if the product has state-level bans. 

For your convenience, our team has also created a list of all Halco’s products that are impacted by these restrictions.
