    1.1 This Standard covers sun lamps, heat lamps and combination sun and heat lamps rated at not more than 125 V. A sun lamp is intended for production of ultraviolet radiation for skin tanning. A heat lamp is intended for production of infrared radiation. A combination sun and heat lamp is intended for production of both ultraviolet and infrared radiation. In the text of this Standard, the term sun/heat lamp is intended to cover all types.

    1.2 This Standard covers portable sun/heat lamps intended for use by nontechnically qualified persons in homes, sports facilities, health spas and similar establishments and intended for connection to a power-supply circuit by a flexible cord for use in accordance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.

    1.3 This Standard does not cover lamps intended primarily to provide illumination (although some visible radiation may be produced during the operation of a sun/heat lamp).

    1.4 This Standard does not cover sun or heat lamps intended for professional use. Professional use lamps are those for use by technically qualified persons in hospitals, nursing homes, medical care centers, clinics, medical offices, laboratories, and similar establishments for therapeutic purposes. The therapeutic lamps are covered by the requirements for medical and dental equipment.

    1.5 Ultraviolet lamps intended for high intensity, short duration – 2 minute maximum first exposure time for most sensitive skin – operation will be subject to an appropriate investigation for any additional requirements as are applicable to a lamp with this feature.

    1.6 This Standard does not cover bulbs alone but complete appliances.
