This document provides risk group classification for all ultraviolet lamp systems, and the measurement conditions for different applications, thus superseding the more general risk group classifications used in ANSI/IES RP-27-20 for UV lamp systems. It includes manufacturing and user safety requirements that may be required as a result of an ultraviolet lamp system being assigned to a particular risk group. The assigned risk group of an ultraviolet lamp system also may be used to assist with any needed risk assessments, e.g., for occupational exposure in workplaces.
