Laser Radiation

Changes to Chapter 64E-4, Florida Administrative Code have been made, effective March 28, 2017.  The purpose of the changes was two-fold.  First, to update old references to the relevant national standards and federal regulations to reflect the newer versions.  Second, to combine the existing laser rule requirements into one rule, 64E-4.001, and one document incorporated by reference, into one PDF, for easier reference.  The document incorporated by reference contains all the other laser radiation requirements formerly found in separate regulations (i.e., 64E-4.002, 64E-4.003, etc.).  No laser requirements were repealed.  (3/28/2017).
