Understanding Symbols: Laser Labels

Posted by Bethany Savage | 7th Jul 2015

Laser Hazard Labels

When it comes to the history and progress of formats and symbols related to the safety labels used on laser products, manufacturers face a dilemma: comply with U.S. regulations or meet internationally-accepted standards that govern laser labeling worldwide.

You won’t want to miss our CEO Geoffrey Peckham’s latest article in In Compliance Magazine, part of a series on safety symbols used on product safety labels and how they’ve changed over time to become more universally recognizable.

Take a look at the article, available in the July issue of In Compliance, to learn more about the Food and Drug Administration’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH)-compliant laser labels (for U.S. markets) and International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC)-compliant laser labels (for international markets). 

The article also then describes the future in laser labeling: a new harmonized format.

And, stay tuned: the final article in the series will give insight on the symbols used in emergency stop labeling.
