About FNL

DIN's Standards Committee Lighting Technology (FNL) develops standards and specifications - and represents German interests at European and international level - in the field of light and lighting, including natural and artificial lighting in the range of ultraviolet, visible and infrared radiation. Topics include:

  • terminology
  • fundamentals of vision
  • photometry
  • radiometry
  • lighting applications for interior and exterior lighting
  • energy efficiency of lighting
  • photobiological effects of light and lighting

The FNL mirrors the work of ISO/TC 274 "Light and lighting" and holds its secretariat.
At European level it mirrors the work of CEN/TC 169 "Light and lighting", also holding its secretariat.
