************************************************************

     The Electrical and Mechanical Services Department announced today (March 5) that a notice under the Energy Efficiency (Labelling of Products) Ordinance had been served to Osram Prosperity Company Limited (OSRAM) to remove the reference numbers of the following five compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) models. As a result, the concerned CFL models are not allowed to be supplied in Hong Kong.
