CIE Research Strategy Launched: The CIE has developed a list of topics which require investment and research to ensure that current and future technologies that involve or incorporate light and lighting are supported by accurate and up-to-date information. The list of the top priority CIE research topics can be found at the “Research Strategy” link at the top of  this home page or at this URL, .

CIE Guide to Increasing Accessibility in Light and Lighting

CIE 196:2011    

ISBN 978 3 901906 94 7

This guide was written for lighting designers and engineers, as well as scientists of light, colour, and vision to assist them in taking account of the needs of older persons and persons with disabilities. The guide was developed in accordance with ISO/IEC Guide 71:2001 “Guidelines for standard developers to address the needs of older persons and persons with disabilities” and its technical guidelines ISO/TR 22411:2008 “Ergonomics data and guidelines for the application of ISO/IEC Guide 71 to products and services to address the needs of older persons and persons with disabilities” in order to implement accessible design in the field of light and lighting. Some content has been shared with those two documents. The guide was prepared by a Working Group (Ad-hoc) in the CIE Board of Administration in cooperation with TC 1-54 “Age-related change of visual response” and TC 3-44 “Lighting for the elderly”.
The publication is written in English, with a short summary in French and German. It consists of 63 pages with 20 figures and 11 tables and is readily available at the National Committees of the CIE or via the CIE Webshop.

The following members of the Working Group took part in the preparation of this Technical Report.
