The Lighting Handbook and previous standards are no longer valid references for current IES recommendations. We therefore developed two cross-reference tables to help you navigate between our past documents and our new online platform. This is the official roadmap of how the standards have changed, and will allow you to reference the new standards with ease.

The bibliography provides a full listing of the standards contained in each collection. To get more information on the library, click here.
