'Laser' stands for 'light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation' and is associated with optical radiation hazards. Among their many applications, lasers are used in household appliances and IT & AV equipment. Laser products can consist of a single laser, with or without a separate power supply, or they can incorporate one or more lasers into complex optical, electrical, or mechanical systems.
The Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH), a division of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), regulates laser products imported into or manufactured in the United States. When submitting a product containing a laser through an NRTL for use in the United States or Canada, it is necessary to evaluate your product for laser safety. This is in accordance with CDRH 21, CFR, or CSA E60825 respectively. Nemko can evaluate your product to CDRH 21, CFR, or CSA E60825 and assist you with the required documentation for compliance with these standards.
EN 60825 Compliance
Any product containing a laser for sale in the European Union or that will be evaluated for an IECEE CB Scheme shall show compliance with EN 60825. This standard ensures the safety of a laser product through the measurement of accessible laser radiation, laser product classification, labels, and documentation. Nemko can evaluate your product to EN 60825 and assist you with the required documentation for compliance with this standard.
