The European Medical Device Directive 93/42/EEC, the
Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC, the Personal Protective
Equipment (PPE) Directive 89/686/EEC, the CE Mark Directive
93/68/EEC, the Toy Directive 2009/48/EC 88/378/EEC and most
notably, the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC 73/23/EEC
(LVD) requires that products
be marked with the "CE" Mark to indicate compliance with all
applicable IEC safety standards before they can be legally
introduced into the EU marketplace.
(Note: EN standards are the IEC standards adopted by the
countries of the European community and each
country may add various national
deviations particular to their country. EN stands for
"European Norm".) If you manufacture a
product or a component that incorporates a laser or LED
(depending on the LED application), then IEC 60825, the
standard for safety of laser products, is the IEC safety
standard your product would be required to be in compliance
with, to address laser and LED radiation hazard concerns.
IEC 62471 Ed. 1 and CIE S 009/E:2002, the standard for
Photobiological Safety for Lamps and Lamp Systems would
apply to LEDs, UV and IR Lamps, Lamp Systems, etc.
If you manufacture a product or a component
that incorporates a laser, US Federal Law requires testing and
classification of your product to US FDA 21CFR. Before you can
legally introduce your product into US commerce, a Product
Report detailing compliance with 21CFR requirements is
required be filed with the US
FDA CDRH to obtain an Accession number issued to your product.
Products employing LEDs fall into the scope of ANSI/IESNA
RP-27.1-96, Photobiological Safety for Lamps & Lamp
Systems - General Requirements. Many laser product
manufacturers only file a Product Report and overlook the
additional reports required to be filed with the US FDA CDRH
as applicable to production. Failure to prepare and file all
required CDRH report may result in fines when audited, i.e.
Supplemental report, Annual report, Abbreviated report,
Radiation Quality Control report, Radiation Test Result
report, Dealer and Distribution report, Incident report,
Defect report, Variance report, etc. http://www.fda.gov
In Canada, the national laser product
safety regulations is the Radiation Emitting Devices Act,
Chapter R-1:2001, (RED) issued by Department of Justice
Canada, "An Act respecting the sale and importation of certain
radiation emitting devices." RED refers to both 21CFR and IEC
60825 as the prescribed regulations for the purpose of
radiation protection to persons. Depending on the particular
Canadian province and the local Canadian authority having
jurisdiction, either 21CFR or IEC 60825 compliance is required
for laser products introduced in Canadian commerce. http://canada.justice.gc.ca
The International marketplace outside of the US, Canada and
Europe require compliance with IEC 60825 and AS/NZS 2211 for
laser and LED products. http://www.iec.ch
