This International Standard specifies the safety requirements for double-capped fluorescent lamps for general lighting purposes of all groups having Fa6, Fa8, G5, G13, 2G13, R17d and W4.3×8.5d caps.
It also specifies the method a manufacturer should use to show compliance with the requirements of this standard on the basis of whole production appraisal in association with his test records on finished products. This method can also be applied for certification purposes. Details of a batch test procedure which can be used to make limited assessment of batches are also given in this standard.
This part of the standard covers photobiological safety according to IEC 62471 and IEC/TR 62471-2.
Blue light and infrared hazards are below the level which requires marking.
NOTE – Compliance with this standard concerns only safety criteria and does not take into account the performance of double-capped fluorescent lamps for general lighting purposes with respect to luminous flux, colour, starting and operational characteristics. Readers are referred to IEC 60081 for such characteristics.
