Does anyone know what are the official rules and regulations for using laser projectors in the netherlands in public spaces such as clubs?

Is there a specific certification that you need or is it similar to other countries where there is a list of rules you must follow.

Thanks!

PS You do know google does work--right? :crackup:

"NETHERLANDS
No applicable law other then a law about laser pointers, however…the ARBO (Dutch regulations about safe working environments) does adhere to the NEN 6025x standard and the new generic advisory given out by the EU that personnel working in such environments must be able to carry out their work in a safe and non-harmful way. There is some advice given which we are still trying to unearth into something more tangible.

So in general in the Netherlands, audience scanning is allowed but it is a general rule of thumb with our professional colleagues here to adhere to the German TUV standards to stay at least at 3 meters above ground level with the lowest beams. Unfortunately there is no real control over this and we’ve seen companies hit audiences with beams and powers far over safe levels."
