CIE has published a number of technical reports and international standards over the years on the topic of ultraviolet radiation, how to measure it, its effects and uses – including its use as a way of disinfection.
To support the international community at this time the CIE is making two of its key publications in this area freely available for the next three months.
- CIE 187:2010 UV-C Photocarcinogenesis Risks from Germicidal Lamps
- CIE 155:2003 Ultraviolet Air Disinfection
Other relevant publications on this topic are available from the CIE WebShop. Members of a National Committee of the CIE can purchase these with a discount of 66.7 % – contact your NC or ANC for information on this.
BE AWARE: CIE, in agreement with the WHO, warns against UV disinfection lamps to sterilize hands or any other area of skin.
