Single-capped fluorescent lamps. Safety specifications

Status : Current, Under review   Published : September 2011



This International Standard specifies the safety requirements for

It also specifies the method a manufacturer should use to show compliance with the requirements of this standard on the basis of whole production appraisal in association with his test records on finished products. This method can also be applied for certification purposes. Details of a batch test procedure which can be used to make limited assessment of batches are also given in this standard.

This part of the standard covers photobiological safety according to IEC 62471 and IEC/TR 62471‑2 .

Blue light and infrared hazards are below the level which requires marking.


Compliance with this standard concerns only safety criteria and does not take into account the performance of single-capped fluorescent lamps for general lighting purposes with respect to luminous flux, colour, starting and operational characteristics. For this information, readers are referred to IEC 60901 .

to be developed.

It may be expected that lamps which comply with this standard will operate safely at supply voltages between 90 % and 110 % of rated supply voltage of the used ballast and when operated with a ballast complying with IEC 61347‑2‑3 or IEC 61347‑2‑8 with a starting device complying with IEC 60155 (if applicable) and in a luminaire complying with IEC 60598‑1 .
