IEC TR 60825-5:2019 is applicable to laser products as described in IEC 60825-1:2014.
The checklist is intended for use by manufacturers of laser products and their agents to establish that each new or modified design complies with the requirements of IEC 60825-1:2014. The checklist is used in conjunction with IEC 60825-1, as relevant clauses and subclauses in IEC 60825-1 are referred to in the text.
The layout of the checklist is intended only as a guide. Manufacturers and examiners are encouraged to produce their own document, omitting questions and clauses that are not relevant to the types of product under examination, but noting in the appropriate positions the numbers of such clauses stating, for example: Subclause 9.11.1: Question omitted – not applicable.
The manufacturer is responsible for ensuring that the examiner is a person competent in the inspection and classification of laser products.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition of IEC TR 60825-5 published in 2003. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a new class, Class 1C, was introduced; the measurement condition 2 (eye loupe condition) was removed; for compliance with non-beam hazards (8.14.1) according to relevant product safety standards, a reference was made to corresponding product reports.
This document is to be used in conjunction with IEC 60825-1:2014.
