The IALD is dedicated to setting the global standard for lighting design excellence. As part of that effort, the association provides these Guidelines for Specification Integrity to promote the use of the best procedures in the lighting design process by lighting professionals, as well as other specifiers of lighting, including architects, engineers and interior designers.

Other major areas of focus for the IALD include designer referral services, recognition of outstanding lighting designs, public awareness, education, energy policy and co- sponsorship of international lighting trade shows.

Since the initial creation and publication of the Guidelines for Specification Integrity in 2000, the lighting profession continues to evolve. These current guidelines have been updated to address issues including various project types, international specification, budget planning, sustainable design and more.


The Lighting Industry Resource Council (LIRC) is an adjunct organization of the IALD. It was established in 1996 by the IALD to provide a forum to foster communication between professional lighting designers and manufacturers of lighting and lighting control equipment. The LIRC adds a critical dimension to IALD activities and improves the quality of lighting overall. Membership in the LIRC is open to all manufacturers of lighting equipment. These guidelines are representative of the value of collaboration between specifier and manufacturer.
