EN 62368-1:2014 Audio/video, information and communication technology equipment – Part 1: Safety requirements
is coming and a date of withdrawal (DOW) for the 60950-1 and 60065 standards has been announced, with a five-year transition to 2019. Manufacturers must demonstrate compliance to EN 62368-1 for all products placed on the market after the DOW.
The recommendation is that if a product or series is going to be withdrawn from the markets by 2018, then keep the old standards in place. If it is anticipated that production will continue beyond that, then look into obtaining certification to EN 62368, but keep the 60950-1 and 60065 files current.
See the latest EU Official journal LVD for more information on changes in the pipeline.
You can also purchase the standard on the BSI website.
