Can an IES LM-80 report for a 2700K LED package support certification for end products using LED packages from 4000K to 6500K? Follow

ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for SSL Luminaires and  Lamps state that IES LM-80 reports shall comply with “ENERGY STAR Program Guidance Regarding LED Package, LED Array and LED Module Lumen Maintenance Performance Data Supporting Qualification of Lighting Products.”

Item 5 in Section 4 of this document states:

The correlated color temperature(s) (CCT) of the LM-80 sample set may differ from the product as follows:
a. IES LM-80 test reports for warm white samples (2700K, 3000K or 3500K) may be referenced to support qualification of a product of any nominal CCT 2700K or higher allowed in ENERGY STAR specifications.
b. IES LM-80 test reports for cool white samples (4000K, 4500K, 5000K, 5700K or 6500K) may be referenced to support qualification of a product of any nominal CCT 4000K or higher allowed in ENERGY STAR specifications.

This means that an IES LM-80 report for a CCT of 2700K could be used to support lumen maintenance of an end product with a CCT of 2700K or higher including 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, 4500K, 5000K, 5700K, 6500K etc... the end product would have to have a CCT that complies with the ENERGY STAR specification.
