Electrical Safety Compliance

Low voltage or electrical safety compliance covers health and safety risks for electrical equipment.

When a product complies to safety standards, end users can be confident they are protected from certain electrical hazards when using it. Low voltage compliance typically applies to equipment that has an operating input or output voltage of between 50 and 1,000 V AC (voltage alternating current) or 75 and 1,500 V DC (voltage direct current).

While there are various mandatory and voluntary low voltage and safety certification schemes worldwide, the most sought-after compliance is to the:


Low-Voltage Directive of the European Union

Nationally Recognized Test Laboratory Programs of North America

Electrical products do not commonly fall under a federally mandated regulatory compliance scheme. Instead, a market or supplier will require a third-party compliance mark that represents quality and safety. Markets that do not have their own regulation for safety compliance can require CE marking or NRTL marking to ensure that products are safe. Approve-IT clients are most frequently seeking electrical safety compliance services for:

  • Brazil INMETRO
  • Customs Union EAC
  • China CCC
  • Korea KC
  • India BIS
  • Mexico NOM
  • Japan PSE
  • South Africa NRCS

Whenever possible, Approve-IT leverages your test reports (including IEC 62368, EN 62368 or UL 62368) to gain approval without the need for samples. The ideal way to approach international safety approvals to reduce delays and overall costs is to have an IEC report along with a CB cert.
