IES Vancouver: UV-C (Germicidal) Products Regulatory Requirements In Canada

LDS 13 CS IES Fundamentals 400

March 22, 2021

In the face of a global pandemic, germicidal UV luminaires utilizing UV-C technology offer a layer of disinfection against bacteria, viruses, and fungal spores.  Air and surface disinfection can play an important role in a broad range of applications, such as schools, offices, industry, (food) retail and museums.

UV-C lamps operating at a certain nanometer range have proven to be highly effective at inactivating viruses, bacteria, and mould spores.  However, humans and animals should not be exposed to germicidal UV-C light at certain wavelengths as it can cause damage to their skin and eyes.  Subsequentially, it is paramount that the UV-C products are built with safety in mind.
