CIE has published a number of technical reports and international standards over the years on the topic of ultraviolet radiation, how to measure it, its effects and uses - including its use as a way of disinfection.
To support the international community at this time the CIE is making two of its key publications in this area freely available for the next three months. [Each link downloads a PDF.]
- CIE 187:2010 UV-C Photocarcinogenesis Risks from Germicidal Lamps
- CIE 155:2003 Ultraviolet Air Disinfection
Other relevant publications on this topic are available from the CIE WebShop: http://cie.co.at/publications.
