New UV-C applications against COVID-19 must be pursued, but require vigilance
Eindhoven, the Netherlands – To meet the increasing demand for new UV-C-based disinfection applications and address associated safety requirements, Signify has contributed to, and adopted the UV-C Safety Guidelines published by the Global Lighting Association. The company has applied these guidelines, in conjunction with other applicable standards, to its new range of UV-C disinfection solutions.
Earlier this year, the Global Lighting Association brought together industry experts and developed guidelines to assist users and manufacturers to ensure that UV-C technology and products are used safely at all times. These guidelines build on the principles of internationally accepted standards such as IEC 62471, the photobiological safety standard, and they prescribe additional technical and procedural safeguards.
