International Commission on Illumination (CIE)

CIE has been a member since 2014.

The International Commission on Illumination – also known as the CIE from its French title, the Commission Internationale de l’Eclairage – is devoted to worldwide cooperation and the exchange of information on all matters relating to the science and art of light and lighting, colour and vision, measurement of light and radiation, photobiology, and image technology. With strong technical, scientific and cultural foundations, the CIE is an independent, non-profit organization that serves member countries on a voluntary basis. Originally formed in 1900 as the International Commission on Photometry (CIP), since its restructuring as the CIE in 1913, the Commission has become a professional organization accepted as representing the best authority on the subject matter of light and lighting. The CIE is recognized by the International Commission for Weights and Measures (CIPM), the International Standardization Organization (ISO) and the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) as an international standardization body.
