The Global Lighting Association (GLA) and the International Ultraviolet Association (IUVA) have signed a memorandum of understanding to co-operate on ultraviolet disinfection technology – also known as ultraviolet germicidal irradiation, or UVGI.
UVGI air disinfection technology is an established method for reducing infection risks caused by a wide range of contagious airborne diseases such as measles, influenza and tuberculosis. Increasingly it is also recognized as a key tool in reducing the level of indoor air contamination posed by the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The memorandum of understanding provides the mechanism for the GLA and IUVA to co-operate in a number of key areas, including:
• joint submissions and other approaches to organizations responsible for establishing ultraviolet disinfection standards and protocols
• joint activities to promote credible information on the application and benefits of UV-C for disinfection of airborne pathogens
• sharing expertise on safety, performance and effectiveness of ultraviolet disinfection technologies
• consultation on health and well-being matters for people in buildings.
