Laser Institute of America

Laser Institute of America is a professional society with a focus on laser use and laser safety. The Laser Institute of America (LIA) was founded in 1968 and acts as secretariat to the Accredited Standards Committee (ASC) Z136, which develops and maintains the Z136 series of laser safety standards. LIA is publisher of these American National Standards Institute (ANSI) Z136 laser safety standards, which provide the foundation of laser safety programs nationally.[1]

LIA is also the publisher of the Journal of Laser Applications [2] and is the organizer of several large international conferences related to laser use and laser safety.[3]

The Board of Laser Safety, a part of LIA, develops and administers the professional certification of Certified Laser Safety Officers (CLSO) and Certified Medical Laser Safety Officers (CMLSO).[4]
