EU Commission Updates Harmonized Standards for Certain Electrical Equipment

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has updated its list of harmonized standards that can be used to demonstrate conformity with the safety requirements of the EU’s Radio Equipment Directive (2014/35/EU, or RED).

Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2022/713 specifically updates harmonized standards originally detailed in Annexes I, II, and III of Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2019/1956. Compliance with the requirements of applicable harmonized standards in (EU) 2019/1956 confers a presumption of conformity with RED requirements.

New harmonized standards addressed in the update cover a short list of specific electrical and electronic products, including battery chargers, appliances for heating liquids, instantaneous water heaters, thermal-storage room heaters, toilets, and certain other electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits.
