  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements cover shatter containment mechanisms for lamps, for use in food establishments, that are intended to prevent contamination of food.

    1.2 Types of lamps covered by these requirements include incandescent, halogen, linear fluorescent, pin-base compact fluorescent, screwbase compact fluorescent, high intensity discharge (HID), and solid state.

    1.3 These requirements do not apply to the lighting fixtures (luminaires), lamp holders or other apparatus that support the lamps and/or shatter containment mechanism.

    1.4 Some types of lamps, including fluorescent and HID lamps, require small amounts of mercury to efficiently function. These requirements do not cover the containment or potential release of mercury upon lamp breakage.

    1.5 HID lamps may experience what is known in the industry as a non-passive failure. These requirements do not cover the containment of glass should this occur.
