State-of-the-art IT technologies require new safety standards. From 20.12.2020, all AV-IT products must be in conformity with the new standard IEC 62368-1.

Already today we help and support you with the conversion of the new security standard for IT products.

For all suppliers and manufacturers of devices in information and communication technology is the changeover of the two previous safety standards IEC/EN 60065 and IEC/EN 60950-1 into the new standard IEC/EN 62368-1, a special content-related and time challenge.

TÜV Rheinland offers you help at an early stage, tests and certification of your AV-IT products to IEC/EN 62368-1. Secure yourself thus a decisive advantage in the market positioning and acceptance of your products!
