Significant changes and timeline for the new standard for AV-IT products

Top 3 challenges

Manufacturers of audio visual and information and communication components and equipment must comply with the new IEC 62368-1 safety standard requirements in order to keep existing or place new products in global markets.

1) Unified implementation

Our experts are on hand to assist you with the implementation of IEC 62368-1 according to safety requirements set forth in the 2nd and 3rd editions affecting AV (audio visual) and IT (information technology) equipment. In addition to offering a broad range of recognized certification and tailored migration services, we are authorized to provide you the CB (Certified Body) reports you need for successful compliance to the new standard. All products on the market must meet EN 62368-1 requirements by the 20. December 2020 deadline coinciding with the formal withdrawal of the previous IEC 60065 and IEC 60950-1 standards.

Although regulators in the US and Europe have agreed to synchronize the 20. December 2020 effective date for national standards based on IEC 62368-1 to provide manufacturers across worldwide markets a unified timeline in which to work, the situation in other countries is a bit less clear. Korea and Japan have, for example, adopted the standard while others such as India and China have not. Manufacturers working in these markets may therefore find themselves being required to certify their products to both current standards as well as IEC 62368-1 and having to submit additional CB reports according to individual country-specific regulations for non-adopting regions. Our experts issue CB reports which are well harmonized with IECEE rules and procedures as well as diversified approaches to national standards such as EN 62368-1, UL 62368-1 and J 62368-1.

We are ready to serve you at any time, anywhere in the world to help you ensure your complete compliance for approved entry to the markets of your choice.

2) Migration process

For companies which have not yet begun the migration process, the IEC 62368-1 2nd Edition provides clauses designed to support you in managing your transition from the legacy standards. These guidelines establish how and when to certify products to the new standard as well as how to manage current inventories of subsystems and components falling within IEC 60950-1 and IEC 60065 requirements.

We provide you the expertise you need to navigate transitional requirements incumbent on your products.

3) Global rollout of new standard

We currently provide comprehensive implementation to CB IEC 62368-1 2nd and 3rd Edition, and migration services. Our portfolio will expand to include complete services according to EN 62368-1 2nd and 3rd Editions by the end of 2020 and UL/CSA 62368-1 based on IEC 2nd and 3rd Editions no later than the beginning of 2023.

We are able to assist you in multiple markets to ensure your regulatory compliance and global competitiveness.
