This European Standard applies to eye-protectors used for protection against accidental exposure to laser radiation as defined in EN 60825-1:2007 in the spectral range 180 nm (0,18 µm) to 1 000 µm. It defines the requirements, test methods and marking. A guide is given in Annex B for the selection and use of laser eye protectors.
This European Standard does not apply to protectors for intentional exposure to laser radiation.
EN 208 applies for laser adjustment eye-protectors.
Before selecting eye protection according to this European Standard, a risk assessment should first be undertaken (see Annex B).
