Timeline for DALI-2 certification

DALI-2 certification: Ongoing developments

View the DALI-2 status page to see the current status of different Parts and work in progress.

To develop and maintain the DALI-2 certification program, the DALI Alliance relies upon voluntary input from its members in the Technical & Certification Working Group (T&C WG). For some of the planned work, additional volunteers are required. Please contact the Technical Manager for details.
