TÜV Rheinland and Eyesafe announced the release of Eyesafe Display Requirements 2.0TÜV Rheinland and Eyesafe announced the release of the Eyesafe Display Requirements 2.0. The partners introduced the Eyesafe Display Requirements 1.0 in 2019, establishing an industry benchmark for low blue light emissions. Global PC companies and suppliers including Dell, HP, Lenovo, Acer, GIGABYTE, BenQ, LG Display, BOE and others have since adopted the requirements for a broad array of products from OLED TVs to high performance laptops and monitors.

The decision to develop and release the new Eyesafe Display Requirements 2.0 is based on advancements in research – specifically, a more complete understanding of the potential risks associated with exposure to blue light. The Eyesafe Display Requirements 2.0 simplify the existing requirements and focuses on Blue Light Toxicity Factor (BLTF) as the primary metric of blue light risk, utilizing a more complete portion of the blue light hazard region on the spectrum of visible light. The Eyesafe Display Requirements 2.0 are available here.

The Eyesafe Display Requirements 2.0 establish a limit of 0.085 for BLTF and address the industry's need for accurate color quality. The new requirements are detailed in the accompanying white paper titled "Defining Blue Light Requirements for Digital Displays." The new requirements reflect the input of world-renowned optometrists and ophthalmologists. TÜV Rheinland will begin offering the Eyesafe® Display Requirements 2.0 Certification in July 2022.

Along with the simplified requirements, TÜV Rheinland and Eyesafe are introducing the concept of Radiance Protection Factor for Display (RPF). The introduction of RPF® will translate BLTF into a numerical scale from 0-100, making Eyesafe Display Requirements easy to understand for consumers. Consumer electronics companies will be able to utilize RPF® as a mechanism to help consumers identify and compare the blue light protection of a given device. The chart here illustrates how RPF® for Display works.
