Low Voltage Directive – LVD

The LVD applies to all electrical equipment, with a few exceptions, that is designed or adapted for use between 50 and 1,000 volts AC or 75 and 1,500 volts DC. All manufacturers or importers of electrical equipment that fall within this scope should ensure that their products conform to the requirements of the LVD. Manufacturers who do so can affix a valid CE Marking to their products to indicate conformity.

Achieving product compliance with the LVD can be complicated and time consuming. Applicable standards or the relevant safety objectives must be identified, and reviewed for each product. A route for demonstrating conformity must be chosen. Risk assessments and testing may become necessary and documentation may need to be prepared. For manufacturers both large and small managing LVD compliance issues and maintaining the resources to do so can prove both impractical and costly.
