Who needs to Comply with the Low Voltage Directive?

There are no translations available.

The Low Voltage Directive (LVD) applies to all electrical equipment, with a few exceptions, that is designed or adapted for use between 50 and 1,000 volts AC or 75 and 1,500 volts DC. All manufacturers or importers of electrical equipment that fall within this scope should ensure that their products conform to the requirements of the LVD. Manufacturers who do so can affix a valid CE Marking to their products to indicate conformity.

The LVD Directive and Routes to Compliance

The manufacturer has the option of addressing either the European Standards applicable to the product (listed in the Official Journal) or the safety objectives listed in the Directive. In some cases, it is in the manufacturers best interest to include a report drawn up by a Notified Body to show due diligence that the product meets the safety requirements.
