Abstract

Outdoor public lighting (PI) is a major concern on design and manage cities. PI standardization has been of interest not only at national level but also at the European Commission. In the present work a brief review is made on standardization and legislation on PI. There are PI international regulations applied in different countries in the absence of a national standardization. The installation of public lighting requires compliance with EN 13201, which determines the type and intensity of illumination on the road depending on its use (rural or urban). The present paper is a milestone on the standardization and results in Portugal.

Keywords
