IEC 62368-1 Compliance Overview

To make sure IT and audio/video equipment are up to the safety requirements in IEC 62368-1, we need to look at what it takes to follow this unified standard. This product safety standard uses a hazard-based approach, zeroing in on finding and reducing risks from different energy sources. It streamlines product design for safety compliance, giving manufacturers more room to practice equipment protection measures. But to be certain products meet the requirements of IEC 62368-1, rigorous compliance testing is key.

Manufacturers have to move their products from older standards like IEC 60065 and IEC 60950 to follow IEC 62368-1, even if they were compliant before. By doing thorough testing, manufacturers can ensure their products meet this standard’s safety requirements, keeping consumers safe and checking all the regulatory boxes.

Replacing UL/CSA Standards

IEC 62368-1 is changing the game for IT and audio-video product design. This new standard, which replaces the old UL/CSA 60950-1 and UL/CSA 60065 standards, is all about risk-based safety engineering. That means manufacturers have more room to get creative with their protection designs, while still making sure everything’s up to code.

For manufacturers, this means taking a fresh look at design elements and components to make sure they meet the new safety requirements. It might take some tweaks, but that’s where LabTest comes in. They’ve got the expertise to guide you through the process and handle all the necessary testing, so you can get your products developed and compliant with IEC 62368-1 without the headaches.
