The following apply to both US and primarily EU countries:
- 21CFR1040.10/.11 (regulation) for lasers and laser-based products in the US
- ANSI Z136 (standard) for laser product and workplace management
- IEC EN60825 (standard) for lasers and laser-based products in the EU
- IEC EN62471 (standard) for LEDs in the EU
Although OSHA has a guidance document page, OSHA, and most states, defer to the ANSI Z136 set of standards for workplace safety.
