NEMA Lighting Systems Division Endorses Global Lighting Association Safety Guidelines for Ultraviolet Disinfecting Devices

According to GLA, germicidal ultraviolet irradiation is a proven methodology for inactivating viruses on solid surfaces, in water, and air. As such, it is expected to be a useful tool in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. UV-C is a category of ultraviolet light with wavelengths between 100-280 nanometers and is the most effective UV light for disinfection. UV-C devices are considered safe if they meet the applicable safety requirements provided in the International Electrotechnical Commission and/or Underwriters Laboratories Standards or other regional safety requirements.  https://www.globallightingassociation.org/images/files/publications/GLA_UV-C_Safety_Position_Statement.pdf
