Abstract
The Federal Laser Products Performance Standard became effective on August 2, 1976. The standard affords users of laser products safety from radiation exposure through containment of the radiation or through indication of graduated degrees of hazard from radiation that cannot be contained. To provide the graduated levels of hazards of radiation, the standard establishes four classes of product based on biological data. A greater number of safety features and warning labels are required according to the increasing classification assigned to products.
