Recommended Practice: Photobiological Safety for Lighting Systems

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.
