• UNE –EN 12464-1: 2012. Illumination. Lighting of workplaces.

Indoor lighting. This standard meets the lighting requirements for indoor workplaces based on comfort needs and visual performance.

The criteria in lighting design are specified, in terms of quantity of luminaires and quality, in most workplaces, the luminances recommended in the performance of activities, the ways to avoid glare, luminance limits etc.

This standard also contains a series of recommendations on good lighting practices. Includes a new column with the minimum luminance uniformity values ​​in the list of interior areas, tasks and activities.


  • UNE –EN 12464-2: 2016. lighting Lighting of outdoor workplaces

This standard meets those requirements for lighting in work areas where activities are carried out outside. These set of requirements must be met to meet the needs for comfort and visual performance. Considered all ordinary visual activities.

Tables are included where the lighting requirements for different areas, tasks and activities carried out outdoors are collected. Lighting limits are set to avoid glare.


  • UNE 72-163-84. Lighting levels. Assignment to visual tasks.

This standard establishes the method for determining the average luminance that specifies the level of illumination to be used at a given point, surface or volume, where the materials that constitute the area of ​​the visual task are located so that it can be carried out with an acceptable performance.


  • UNE 72-502-84. Illumination systems. General ranking.

This standard classifies lighting systems taking into account the characteristics of the light sources used, the light distribution and the lighting objectives.


  • UNE 72-153-85. Lighting levels. Assignment to visual tasks.

The standard establishes a correspondence between the visual requirement of the activities and the average luminance of the visual field area corresponding to the task so that it can be carried out with an acceptable performance.


  • UNE-EN 1838:2016. lighting Emergency lighting.

The standard is renewed in relation to the old “UNE-EN 1838: 2000”where the minimum requirements for the design of emergency lighting and evacuation are included. They are calculated for the full nominal life period and the end of the equipment’s design life. The purpose of emergency and evacuation lighting is to allow the safe exit of any place in case of failure of the normal supply. The standard specifies the photometric and luminous requirements for emergency lighting systems installed in premises and places where such systems are required. It mainly applies to places that the public or workers have access to.

  • UNE-EN 12665:2012.. Basic terms and criteria for the specification of lighting requirements.

This standard defines basic terms for use in all lighting applications. It also establishes a framework for the specification of lighting requirements. Included are the parameters that need to be specified to ensure adequate lighting for safety and movement and good visual conditions to ensure adequate color perception and visual comfort. Regarding its version of 2003, new terms have been defined and an informative Annex has been added.


  • EN ISO 28803:2012. Ergonomics of the physical environmentApplication of International Standards to people with special requirements.

This standard is general and aims to establish ergonomic principles for the physical environmental conditioning of those people with special requirements, either due to age, health status, disability, etc.

It analyzes the following aspects: thermal, acoustic environment, lighting and exposure to vibrations. It establishes the peculiarities of different situations and helps the applicability of different norms related to each aspect.
