Paper Abstract

Not long ago there were not acceptable Laser Safety Standard in Russia, that stood in the way of the further development of laser medicine and laser equipment market in Russia. Not a certain document inherited by Russia from USSR was corresponded to international standards. For example, the Russia State Standards No 12.1 .040-83, 12.1.031—81, 12.4.026-76 only enumerate an unhealthly factors of environment, not giving the way of safety. The using of the Russia Ministery of Public Health Sanitary Standard No 2392—81 was a dangerously for life. It was sadly to admit that Russia State Laser Safety Standards were not exactly what's needed for public health and for environmental protection.
