The memorandum of understanding (MoU) signature was publicly announced at the EPIC Online Technology Meeting on UV-LED-based Technologies and Applications on 22 June 2020. The collaboration between IUVA and EPIC is focused on cooperative activities involving industry endorsement of standards and support the development of an efficient and sustainable industry.

The partnership will encourage cooperation between the members, including participation at events, collaboration on information exchange and promotion, and advisory mandates to develop an efficient and sustainable industry. Dr. Jose Pozo, CTO of EPIC, said: “Having IUVA on board as a partner brings the opportunity to EPIC members to build potential collaborations and partnerships with the key players of the UV market. The main goal of this cooperation is to facilitate the communication between different parts of the value chain towards building common voice for the interests of companies using ultraviolet technologies.”

Implementing agreements and standards for ultraviolet technologies

“The collaboration with EPIC and its members helps IUVA support its core vision to help ultraviolet technology become a leading technology for public health and environmental applications” said Oliver Lawal, past president of IUVA and CEO of AquiSense Technologies. “For this, we need end-users, service providers, equipment vendors, and technology providers to work together using worldwide standards. The huge network of EPIC will support this mission.”
