A process for compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) manufacturers to voluntarily limit the amount of mercury per lamp has been published by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA).
 
The document covers limited integral, self-ballasted CFLs of all base types, such as E26 and GU24, manufactured or imported after April 15, 2007.
 
According to NEMA, the document responds to utilities, environmental groups, energy efficiency consortia, EPA, and others, who have expressed a desire to limit the amount of mercury used in self-ballasted compact fluorescent lamps. The voluntary commitment is open to all CFL manufacturers and suppliers, not just to NEMA members.
