Paper Abstract

The Federal Performance Standards for Laser Products require that laser products incorporate means to provide warnings and control for laser radiation. The requirements are graded according to the levels of radiation and include protective housings, safety interlocks, remote control connector, key control, laser radiation emission indicator and beam attenuator. In addition, there are performance requirements that apply to the location of controls, viewing optics and scanning laser products. A brief explanation of the requirements is presented with a discussion of some of the general approaches taken by manufacturers in meeting the requirements and our reaction to these approaches.
