EUROPE

     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. http://www.iec.ch

USA

    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

CANADA

    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

INTERNATIONAL  

    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

    Laser Product Safety LLC serves the International community. Product samples are shipped to Laser Product Safety LLC for testing and evaluation from all over the world.
