AirStrips and Refinery Flare distance

Hello everybody,

does anyone knows there is any code, criteria or laws by any agency regarding strong light emissions that may disturbe aviation during take-off or Landing ?
I am designing a refinery flare that is 1.8km (about 2 miles) from a civil airstrip.
I checked ICAO and FAA but I could not find anything related, and it sound strange to me.
Any contribution will be appreciated !
Thanks for your time.

There is this from the UK CAA.
Not sure if it helps you much though with your flare stack.

Lawrence, after a quick look, even if it does not consider Flares istacks, helped me a lot.
Many thanks !
