The National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) has published ANSI C136.38-2009 American National Standard for Roadway and Area Lighting Equipment — Induction Lighting. This new standard was produced by the ANSI Committee 136 for Roadway and Area Lighting.

ANSI C136.38 defines the electrical and mechanical requirements of induction type light sources for use in roadway and area lighting luminaires. It also describes how the induction system should be rated and the information necessary for inclusion on the product label.

This addition to the ANSI C136 series joins more than thirty other standards covering a range of topics related to roadway and area lighting, including filament lamps, vertical tenons and vandal shields.
