Organization: IES
Publication Date: 13 February 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 71
scope:

This Recommended Practice covers the classification, labeling and informational requirements for lamps that emit optical radiation in the wavelength range from 200 nm to 3000 nm, with exception for LEDs 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, LEDs, organic LEDs (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.

Specific recommendations are included to provide consistency and to reduce test design time and effort. Further, this Recommended Practice is to be used by the radiometrist for guidance regarding special problems related to photobiological hazard measurements.

It is impractical for this Standard to teach all of the concepts or provide all experience needed to make accurate photobiological safety measurements.
