Updated standards list published for the EU’s Electrical Safety Directive

The Commission of the European Union (EU) has published an updated list of standards that can be used to demonstrate conformity with the essential requirements of its directive relating to electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits (2006/95/EC).

The Directive defines ‘electrical equipment’ as any device designed for use with a voltage rating of between 50 and 1000 V for alternating current, and between 75 and 1500 V for direct current.

The updated list of standards that can be used to demonstrate compliance with the Directive was published in August 2011 in the Official Journal of the European Union, and replaces all previously published standards lists. Read the complete list of standards for the EU’s Electrical Safety Directive (note that the list runs 82 pages!)
