In the Netherlands, traffic lights have to comply with the rules in the Traffic Lights Regulation (Regeling verkeerslichten), which lays down guidelines regarding the use, design, placement, colour, measurements and material of traffic lights.

Please note: The technical requirements that apply in the Netherlands to traffic lights differ from those of other EU Member States. If a type of traffic light is already permitted in another EU Member State, the Dutch government may only prohibit its sale in the Netherlands in exceptional cases.
