Recent changes to be covered include: corrections to the general laser requirements (60825-1:2007); specification of measurement criteria for Hazard Levels for optical fiber systems (60825-2); a revised report on laser light shows (60825-3); revised measurement criteria (60825-13); and others.
Topics being discussed for future revisions include: an update of MPEs (60825-1 and -14); measurement criteria for extended sources and scanning systems (60825-1 and -13); revision of measurements for optical fiber systems (60825-2); removal of LEDs from the free space optical communication systems standard (60825-12); LED product requirements in a new 62471-2; an update of the User Standard (60825-14); and others.
