UV Lights in Compliance with ASTM E3022-18 Standard

The ASTM E3022-18 is a standard released in September 2015 and contains manufacturers’ requirements for UV LED lights used in fluorescent penetrant and magnetic particle testing. This standard was adopted by E1417-13 as well.

If you buy a UV-A light from a manufacturer that claims “Tested to comply with ASTM E3022-18”, you are not entitled to just a certificate. You are entitled to:

(a) A serialized unit test report that proves that all tests required by ASTM E3022-18, for the unit that you have bought, have been taken and the values recorded are within the allowable limits. You will need this for your audits.

(b) A type test report. This is a very detailed and comprehensive report with more advanced tests for the model that you bought. Tests are made on a reference light that if different than the one you bought.

(c) Test reports should note the instruments used, their serial numbers and calibration dates. ASTM E3022-18 requires instruments with specific specifications.

(d) A certificate, assuming all values generated are within the allowable limits.
