Fecha: 01-09-2022

The standard published today, ANSI/IES/IUVA LM-92-22 Approved Method: Optical and Electrical Measurement of Ultraviolet LEDs, details a repeatable method for laboratory measurement of optical and electrical performance characteristics of UV light emitting diodes (LEDs), the discrete components built into UV LED products. This American National Standard is available for purchase at and is immediately available to IES Lighting Library subscribers.

“We are delighted to have partnered with the IUVA to develop these first-ever standardized methods of measurement for ultraviolet emissions,” said Brian Liebel, IES director of standards and research. “These standards will advance the science and application of germicidal ultraviolet disinfection, in support of our Society’s mission to translate lighting knowledge into actions that benefit the public. The dedication by our Testing Procedures Committee and the IUVA to completing this new industry standard has been outstanding.”
