This Act amended the previous 26,473, which only prohibited the import and marketing of incandescent lamps for residential use.

The amendment also provides that the National Executive may issue the necessary measures to “facilitate the import, input components, parts and/or equipment necessary for the production of energy-saving lamps and LED technology”.
