Recommended Practice for Photobiological Safety for Lamps – Risk Group Classification and Labeling
|Publication Date:||20 December 2017|
This standard covers the classification, labeling and informational requirements for lamps that emit optical radiation in the wavelength range from 200 nm to 3,000 nm, with exception for LED diodes used in optical fiber communication systems and for lasers. Lamps included are incandescent filament lamps including tungsten halogen types and incandescent heating sources, low pressure discharge lamps, high intensity discharge (HID) lamps, short arc lamps, carbon arcs, electroluminescent lamps, lightemitting diodes (LEDs), organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs) and laser-driven broadband sources. For the purposes of this document, induction lighting is classified under fluorescent lamps and plasma lighting is classified under HID lamps. Federal mandatory requirements for lamps subject to specific Federal Regulations take precedence over requirements included in this consensus standard.
Note 1: Units of wavelength in this document are exclusively in nanometers (nm).
Note 2: Subtended angles are denoted by the full included angle, not the half angle.
