    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies a set of outcomes-oriented criteria for the safety of electrical equipment for use by electrical regulators in relation to products for which regulatory approval before sale is not required (non-declared articles). This Standard is intended to be consistent with the criteria of the European Union low voltage directive.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard sets out requirements for low voltage electrical equipment, to ensure that electrical equipment is constructed in accordance with good engineering practice in regard to safety such that it does not endanger the safety of persons (particularly children, the elderly and people with disabilities), domestic animals or property, when properly installed and maintained and used in applications for which it was made.
