Illumination safety: LEDs

LEDs are covered by the IEC regulations and special care needs to be taken to ensure that LED based illumination installations will not cause harm to the operator.

LED lighting safety procedures are very similar to the laser safety regulations and are based on the intensity, duration and wavelength of the light produced.

The EU mandates

In accordance with EU machinery mandates, EMC mandates, and low voltage mandates, machines and electronic devices not marked with the CE logo are subject to distribution restrictions within the EU. All LED illumination products and power supplies should conform to corresponding regulations.

Since September 2011 the new classification standard EN62471 (see table) has to be applied to LED illumination.
