LightingEurope Calls for UV-C Products to be Allowed on EU Market

LightingEurope endorsed the recent UV-C safety guidelines published by the Global Lighting Association (GLA) and called on European Union Member States to ensure UV-C products can continue to be placed on the EU market.Germicidal ultraviolet irradiation is a proven methodology for inactivating viruses on solid surfaces, in water and in air, and it is expected to be a useful tool in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The GLA statement provides guidance to manufacturers and to potential users on the requirements UV-C products should satisfy to allow safe use. LightingEurope shares the GLA’s concern at the increase in products, in particular online, with dubious safety features and inadequate safety instructions. While UV-C is helping to contain viruses, if not used properly, it can pose risks to human health. https://www.globallightingassociation.org/
