PLATO is the Portable Lights American Trade Organization. SureFire is proud to be a founding member.
What is PLATO's purpose?
PLATO works to promote the common interests of companies that manufacture portable lighting products, including standards, legislation, litigation, and education.
A recent and consumer-visible project of PLATO was the creation of the ANSI/NEMA FL-1 standards for portable lighting. This standard specifies the methodology for testing, measuring, and rating the basic performance of flashlights, headlamps, lanterns and portable lighting tools, giving consumers and purchasing managers a uniform system for understanding and comparing product performance.
