IEC 62368-1 Testing and Certification

Demonstrate compliance with IEC 62368-1, the hazard-based standard for IT and AV products.


IEC 62368-1 testing and certification services

Safety standards for audio/visual (AV) and information technology equipment (ITE) products have moved away from a prescriptive approach to a hazard safety approach with the introduction of IEC 62368-1. This hazard-based standard offers greater flexibility in product design and makes it easier to introduce new technology.

Currently, the requirements for IEC 62368-1 continue to evolve, and various countries worldwide are transitioning to the fourth edition of the standard.

62368-1 covers a wide range of technology products, including:

  • Computing and networking products – Servers, PCs, routers, notebook/laptop computers, tablets and their power supplies
  • Consumer electronics – Amplifiers, home theater systems, digital cameras and personal music players
  • Displays and display units – Monitors, TVs and digital projectors
  • Telecommunication products – Network infrastructure equipment, cordless and mobile phones, and similar communication devices, including battery-powered devices
  • Office appliances – Copiers and document shredders
  • Similar varieties of audio/video, information and communication technology equipment – Devices used in homes, schools, data processing centers, and commercial and professional environments

UL Solutions, a global safety science leader, can help you understand the requirements of IEC 62368-1 as they apply to your target markets and offerings and test and certify your products per the latest edition of IEC 62368-1.
