Laser safety part 1: equipment classification, requirements and user's guide

This standard is applicable to safety of laser products, and is based on IEC 832-1:1993. However, laser products which are sold to other manufacturers for use as components of any system for subsequent sale are not subject to this standard, since the final product will itself be subject to it. Minimum safety requirements are described for hazards resulting from laser radiation, fire and electric shock. The MPE (maximum permissible exposure) values of this standard were developed for laser radiation rather than for collateral radiation.
