What are the regulations and standards applied to Photonics products and workplaces?

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.
