EN/IEC 62368-1

Nemko Ltd is both UKAS accredited and CB listed for EN/IEC 62368-1, which will replace EN/IEC 60065 and EN/IEC 60950-1.

Unlike existing ‘risk-based’ safety standards, 62368-1 uses a new ‘hazard-based’ methodology to assess the safety of Audio Video (AV) and IT & Communication Technology (ICT) products, which may allow for greater design freedom.

Components & subassemblies

To help facilitate a smooth transition to 62368-1, components and subassemblies that already comply with 60065 or 60950-1 will be considered acceptable without further evaluation, other than to give consideration to the appropriate use of the component or subassembly in the end-product.

Key implementation dates for Europe

  • Date of Publication (DoP) – latest date by which EN 62368-1 has to be implemented at national level: 20 June 2015
  • Date of Withdrawal (DoW) – latest date by which the national standards conflicting with EN 62368-1 (ie EN 60065 & EN 60950-1) have to be withdrawn: 20 June 2019
