Think about our anti-UV 5502P for your compliance needs!

The ISO 12312-1:2022 solar standard, which governs the requirements for sun protection filters, has been updated. The aim of this development is to reinforce the safety and reliability of products designed to protect against the sun’s harmful rays, thus ensuring better protection for the eyes.

Main changes to ISO 12312-1:2022

Changes to this standard include several significant additions and adjustments to improve the effectiveness of sunscreens. These include

  • The addition of a specification for electro-optical filters, enabling better adaptation to different lighting conditions.
  • The replacement of the old terminology “localized power variations” by “spatial deviation”, aimed at clarifying compliance criteria and facilitating product evaluation.
  • The introduction of photochromic lens activation at specific temperatures, providing a better understanding of lens performance as a function of environmental conditions.
  • The extension of side protection for children’s sunglasses frames, reinforcing the safety of the youngest wearers against harmful solar radiation.

These changes are designed to meet the growing need for eye safety and guarantee optimum protection for users, whatever their environment.
