Photobiological safety of lamps and lamp systems

Status : Current   Published : March 2009



What is BS EN 62471:2008?

BS EN 62471 gives best-practice recommendations to test the photobiological safety of electric lamps and lighting systems, including luminaires. This standard specifies exposure limits, measurement techniques and classification systems to control photobiological and light hazards. Its specifications cover all lamps and lamp systems from electrically powered sources of optical radiation, including LEDs. By complying with this standard, manufacturers can put the right safety measures in place to protect staff and consumers from physiological and photochemical reactions.

How does it work?

BS EN 62471 first presents all the definitions, symbols and abbreviations relating to lamps and lamp systems, before discussing measurement conditions, measurement procedures and various analysis methods. It also gives a clear classification of lamps, and gives an in-depth explanation of the biological effects, including infrared radiation, ultraviolet radiation and retinal thermal injuries.

Who should buy it?

  • Manufacturers of lamps and lamp systems
  • Suppliers of lighting systems
  • Suppliers of components for electric lamps
  • Health and safety professionals
  • Quality assurance consultants
