Advice on the normative requirements for electrotechnical products
Consulting regarding the normative requirements for electrotechnical products is an essential component for successfully placing products on the international market.
This is because the normative requirements for electrotechnical products are becoming increasingly complex. For example, the normative requirements in Part 1 of EN / IEC 60335-1 for household appliances were summarized on a little more than 100 pages around 20 years ago, but now there are more than 200 pages of normative requirements.
The most recent 6th edition from 2020 just added cybersecurity requirements for products that can be controlled via the internet.
In addition to the main standard with the general requirements, there are more than 100 parts 2 with special requirements for certain types of equipment. There are standards for purely household appliances as well as those for commercially used appliances.
It should be noted that all standards are updated regularly. A standard is usually revised every 3 to 5 years. This creates new challenges even for products already on the market.
