|Publication Date:||15 July 2013|
|ICS Code (Head protective equipment):||13.340.20|
This International Standard gives guidance and information to users, manufacturers, suppliers, and safety advisors on the selection and use of eye protectors for intense light source (ILS) equipment used on humans and animals for cosmetic and medical applications against excessive exposure to optical radiation in the spectral range 250 nm to 3 000 nm, with the exception of laser radiation.
This International Standard provides guidance on selection of an eye protector expected to cope with the majority of applications and a more rigorous procedure for determining appropriate eye protection against spectral outputs from ILS equipment.
This International Standard is not applicable to eye protectors for use with tanning equipment, ophthalmic instruments, or other medical/cosmetic devices, the safety issues of which are addressed through other European and International Standards.
