Epson confirms committment to provide projector lamps after February 2027
To ensure maximum use of existing products, Epson has said it will continue to provide projector lamps to existing users after February 2027. Their continued availability complies with the RoHS Directive that allows provision of spare parts for EEE products placed in the market before the exemption expired.

EU regulation 2023/2049, which comes into effect on January 1, 2026, prohibits the manufacture and importation of mercury-containing products, which affects the non-laserprojetor market.

In a statement, the projector manufacturer said: 

In light of the recent EU regulations regarding projector lamps, there has been a widespread misunderstanding that the sale of projector lamps will be completely banned from 2027 onwards — this is not the case.

While the regulation does restrict new sales, it allows for the continued supply of spare parts, including projector lamps, for EEE products already on the market. As such Epson is committed to providing projector lamps to existing users in accordance with these provisions. 

Graeme Davidson, video projection director at Epson Europe, commented on the regulation and Epson’s future plans: “To ensure maximum use of existing products, Epson will continue to provide projector lamps to existing users after February 2027. Their continued availability complies with the RoHS Directive that allows provision of spare parts for EEE products placed in the market before the exemption expired.”

He added, “While we continue to support existing technologies, we’ve been introducing laser-light sources to our projector range and this is our focus. These products reduce consumables use and energy consumption, supporting our wider sustainability goals.”
