55. Laser Use Regulations

Only class 3 or higher lasers should be regulated and required to be used by trained personnel in approved locations or on approved applications. Class 1 and 2 lasers need not to be regulated at all. Laser pointers used as presentation aids and for other common purposes should be encouraged (perhaps mandated) to be made to fall into the class 2 category thus allowing them to be widely and legally used without the burden of complying with government regulations. All laser products should contain a label indicating into which level the laser falls as well as any precautions to observe.
