Abstract
The Federal Performance Standards for Laser Products pose a challenge for the smaller manufacturing companies producing laser products. However, the effects of the Standards can be greatly minimized by thorough interpretation of the Standards, communication with the Bureau of Radiological Health personnel in areas of question, careful product design, and organized implementation of systems. This paper will describe the economic effects of the Standards on a smaller company. I will go into detail of how we at LEXEL Corporation approached the problems of interpretation of the Standards, design of safety labels and features into the product, report writing, and the systems we adopted to assure continued compliance.
