Electrical Safety For A/V and ICT Equipment

We can help certify your audio/visual (A/V) and information technology (IT) products to IEC 62368-1, the latest hazard-based safety standard that will eventually replace IEC 60065 and IEC 60950-1.

Overview

Many markets, both national and international, require that electrical products meet mandatory safety requirements in order to be sold. Two important International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) safety standards issued by the IEC are IEC 60065 and IEC 60950-1. These standards dictate the safety requirements for A/V and IT equipment.

A harmonized, hazard–based safety standard, IEC 62368-1, designed to encompass A/V and IT products has been developed in response to technological changes as product capabilities merge. This new IEC hazard-based standard will eventually replace IEC 60065 and IEC 60950-1. See 62368-1 Hazard Based Safety Engineering & Testing for details.

We can help you certify your electrical products to the latest standards that are applicable to your product category and/or transition to IEC 62368-1. Our services include:

  • Safety testing to IEC 60065 and/or IEC 60950-1
  • Public and private training to IEC 60065 and IEC 60950-1 as well as IEC 62368-1
  • Gap assessment to IEC 62368-1
  • IEC 60065 (Ed. 8) Proactive Review – transition from seventh to eight edition
  • Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC)/wireless testing for the majority of wireless technologies, including Bluetooth, cellular (including LTE), Wi-Fi, Zigbee and more

Benefits

Making sure that your products are in compliance to multiple market standards can be confusing. Fortunately, we’re here to simplify the process for you. By bundling our product tests and certifications, we can help you meet all the relevant standards that you need to, both national and international.

As the leading National Certification Body (NCB) of the IEC System of Conformity Assessment Schemes for Electrotechnical Equipment and Components (IECEE) Certification Body (CB) Scheme, we can also use your test results to prepare a CB Test Report. In addition, we can authenticate this report by issuing a CB Certificate, which can be used to apply to 53 member countries for local marketing approvals.
