Ensure that optical radiation from laser-based products is compliant with standard requirements and safe for end-users

Optical radiation safety considerations are critical when designing laser-based products for compliance. Optical dangers are not considered in general product safety hazard assessments (burn, electrical shock, etc.) and can lead to product failures if safeguards are not designed appropriately.

As the world’s leading independent, third-party testing laboratory, MET is your single-source testing destination for optical radiation of laser products. With the capability to test and certify all four classes of lasers for optical and product safety, MET’s streamlined testing process helps you take your product to market faster and cost-effectively.

Take your products to global markets with MET’s global market access network. Through our international network of partners, MET can provide certification of acceptable optical radiation levels to multiple markets with a single test report. Our end-to-end testing capabilities, expert engineers, and single-source testing solutions help you meet demanding global market requirements and avoid the costs associated with multiple testings.
