31 January 2001 Shaping the Romanian laser safety policy in the frame of European cooperation
Author Affiliations +
At the European scale, a new strategy practice was developed, in relation to the New Approach. The EC Directives require manufactures and users to carry out risk assessment of the product and/or the working place, respectively. Until now, in Romania there were no conditions referring to a qualified protection concerning laser hazards, neither from legal, nor from technical point of view. The paper refers to the efforts devoted in the last years to overcome these drawbacks, in connection with: the preparation of national standards, the participation to international activities related to the development of written standards, the organization of courses/seminars on laser safety, and the structuring of a national facility for laser metrology. The talk describes how these activities were supported by some European programs, or bilateral cooperation with partners from Western European countries.
