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.

Update on EN 62368-1: 2014 (edition 2)

Date of Withdrawal (DOW) has been changed by CENELEC from 20 June 2019 to 20 December 2020.

(DOW is the official latest date by which the national standards conflicting with EN 62368-1: 2014, i.e. EN 60065 & EN 60950-1, have to be withdrawn.)

It is anticipated that the US will align their UL 62368-1 transition date with the EU, once it is published in the Official Journal.

Update on IEC 62368-1 (edition 3)

The final draft of IEC 62368-1 (edition 3) is due for circulation by end of April 2018.  IEC publication target is still Q3 2018.
