MEGA Electronics Begins Certification Process for New EU Regulations
NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J., December 5, 2017 (Newswire.com) - MEGA Electronics, a leading supplier of power cords and power supplies to companies around the globe, is on its way to getting certified according to new EU regulations scheduled to go into effect in 2019.
“As a leading manufacturer of power cords and supplies, we are dedicated to ensuring all our products have the required certifications,” said Guy Francfort, vice president of sales and marketing at MEGA Electronics. “We monitor and anticipate these changes so that our clients are not negatively impacted.”
Starting in June 2019, EU external power supply regulation EN 62368-1 will replace two previous regulations, 60905 and 60065.
The Date of Withdrawal (DoW) of the standards to be superseded, EN 60065 and EN 60950-1, was set for June 20, 2019.
However, the Official Journal (OJ) of the European Union has yet to be updated to include EN 62368-1 as a standard formally associated with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) – this update of the LVD is expected to be published soon.
Along with the EN 62368-1 update, UL has also assigned a June 20, 2019, effective date for new equipment/certifications of A/V, IT or ICT equipment, or significant modification of existing equipment/certifications.
Continuing certification will be allowed for existing certifications that are not significantly modified after the date.
As in the EU, this date is aligned with the adoption period recommended by IEC TC108 and it will allow AV & ICT equipment manufacturers to both adequately prepare for the transition to the new standard and align their certification strategies to cover two main regions of the world.
