"Recommending practices for modulating current in High Brightness LEDs for mitigating health risks to viewers"

Our Purpose:

Bring together a community of lighting environmental psychologists, lamp designers, LED (Light Emitting Diode) driver designers, medical experts, and LED lamp users to 1) discuss concerns for modulating frequencies (flicker) in LED lighting and 2) provide recommended modulating frequency (flicker) practices to aid the LED lamp design in different applications. Our goal is to provide fair and unbiased information on health effects of flicker in LED lighting.

Public Documents:

Our goal is to create a transparent, open process. In order to do this, IEEE Standards P1789 will post various documents related to flicker in lighting and its health effects. We openly solicit comments from the public from the following web page link:

Recommended practice passed ballot (January 2015) and is under review by IEEE Standards Board for final approval (hopefully April 2015...)
