ILV: International Lighting Vocabulary

CIE Draft Standard DS 017.2/E:2009

CIE has published Draft Standard CIE DS 017.2/E:2009 ILV: International Lighting Vocabulary.

It is an update and extension of the contents of the 4th Edition of the International Lighting Vocabulary, which was a joint publication of the CIE and the IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) and provided definitions of some 950 terms related to light and lighting. The terms and definitions of this publication have been completely reviewed. In addition, a large number of new terms and definitions have been introduced.

The aim of this Draft Standard comprising some 1500 terms and their definitions is to promote international standardization in the use of quantities, units, symbols and terminology in this field.

CIE DS 017.2/E:2009 ILV: International Lighting Vocabulary has been approved by the Board of Administration of the CIE. It comprises 196 pages and presents the definitions of nearly 1500 terms related to light and lighting.

The Draft Standard has been sent to CIE National Committees for comments and sales to interested parties. It is still subject to changes and may not yet be referred to as a CIE Standard. When approved by the CIE NCs, it will be published as a CIE Standard and later on as a joint ISO/CIE standard.
