CE Declarations of Conformity using 3rd Edition of the safety standards EN IEC 62368-1:20xx

If equipment is developed according to harmonised standards listed in the EU Official Journal, there is a presumption of conformity with the safety objectives of the corresponding directives, e.g. the Low Voltage Directive.

Due to the HAS consultant process introduced by the EU, the listing of revised standards is massively delayed and the standards listed in the Official Journal no longer correspond to the international status. 

Manufacturers of power supplies would therefore currently have to carry out assessments according to both the current and the already outdated editions of 62368 in order to benefit from the presumption of conformity by authorities and to comply with the state of the art. An assessment according to two different editions of the standard prolongs the design process and creates unnecessary additional work.

Instead of assessing, reporting and certifying according to two variants of standard 62368-1, this guide shows two more simplified alternative options.
