BASIC REQUIREMENTS of CE EN EYE PROTECTORS 166:2001
The EN166 standard outlines the requirements applicable to all types of personal eye protectors.
This includes eye protection used to prevent damage or prevent against various dangers which are liable to damage
the eye or to alter the vision. The exceptions in the EN166 standard are eye protection from radiation of nuclear origin, laser beams,X-rays and infrared rays emitted by sources at low temperature. Where there are complete eye protective standard specifications already in place, these are not included in the EN166 standard specifications. Examples would be anti-laser eye protectors, all-purpose solar glasses etc.
The eye protectors fitted with corrective lenses are not excluded from the application field.
Not all types of eye protectors are permitted to meet all these requirements.
