Warning triangles

These are required on all lasers above Class 1

Aperture labels

These are required on all Class 3R, Class 3B and Class 4 lasers

Classification labels

If your laser product contains a laser which is Class 1 even when all housings have been stripped away then it is exempt from the requirements of EN / IEC 60825-1, including labeling requirements.

Otherwise your laser will need a Classification label.

Protective housing labels

These are required on all panels or connections which when removed, opened or displaced will give access to radiation in excess of Class 1. The class of this label is determined by the class of the laser radiation accessible once the panel is opened (eg a panel on a Class 1 laser product, which when removed gives access to Class 3B laser radiation will require a Protective Housing Class 3B label).

Interlocked housing labels

These are required on all interlocked panels which when opened will give access to radiation in excess of Class 1 when the interlock is overridden. The label should be fixed in close proximity to the opening and must be visible prior to and during interlock override. The class of this label is determined by the class of the laser radiation accessed once the panel is opened and the interlock overridden (eg an interlocked panel on a Class 1 laser product, which when opened and the interlock overridden gives access to Class 4 laser radiation will require an Interlocked Housing Class 4 label).

Invisible / Visible and Invisible Radiation Warnings

Where the laser radiation is invisible, the ‘invisible radiation’ versions of Classification, Protective Housing and Interlocked Housing labels should be used.

Where the laser radiation is both visible and invisible, the ‘visible and invisible’ versions of Classification, Protective Housing and Interlocked Housing labels should be used.
