The Illuminating Engineering Society and the International Ultraviolet Association release a new American National Standard for measuring ultraviolet LEDs

The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES, est. 1906), in partnership with the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA, est. 1999), has published its first in a series of American National Standards for the measurement of ultraviolet product emissions.
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) recently introduced the standard, ANSI/IES RP-44-21 Recommended Practice: Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation. This new standard addresses the use of UVGI for disinfection, the potential dangers for humans, potential effects on materials and plants, UVGI technologies, and safety measures and precautions.
Just days ahead of its 50th anniversary, LD+A magazine, the Illuminating Engineering Society’s award-winning publication for professionals involved in the art, science, study, manufacture, teaching and implementation of lighting, was presented with a Gold EXCEL Award for its media kit, and Silver EXCEL Awards for both magazine Design Excellence and General Excellence.
The IES Board of Directors is excited to announce that it has approved the Executive Search Committee's proposal to nominate Dan Salinas as Interim Executive Director. He will work closely with Tim Licitra whose last day with the Society will be on June 18th. A review of our needs and requirements preceded a rigorous selection process which led to the Committee's selection.
The Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and the Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) are pleased to announce a memorandum of understanding (MOU) enabling future collaboration on consensus-based guidelines and publications. Both parties seek to advance lighting knowledge and improve the quality of lighting in health care facilities through this MOU.
LightFair 2021 will be postponed until October 2021 report the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD), the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and International Market Centers (IMC). The annual showcase of new innovations in lighting design moves to October 27-29, 2021 and the accompanying educational conference is now October 25-29, 2021 at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York. The move puts LightFair 2021 at a more optimal time than the previously scheduled May 2021 dates.
