Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU Evaluation and Testing

Low Voltage 2014/35/EU, formerly 2006/95/EC
Electrical products that have a voltage rating within the below parameters can be subject to the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU, formerly 2006/95/EC:

  • 50 – 1,000 volts for AC devices
  • 75 – 1,500 volts for DC devices.

DC devices which charge using an AC adapter are also subject to the LVD, even if the voltage is less than 75 volts DC.

Conformity to the Low Voltage Directive is mandatory if your product is within the voltage limits and not excluded specifically by the law (the Low Voltage Directive is a European law). Note that if your product is not within these voltages it may still be subject to other laws: most notably the General Product Safety Directive 2001/95/EC.

LVD compliance is not assured by using all CE marked components. That is the starting point and the device itself must carry a CE mark that indicates the overall assembly, tested and evaluated as a single unit, is in legal compliance with the Low Voltage Directive.

F2 Labs can perform the required evaluation and testing to ensure compliance with the Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU, formerly 2006/95/EC. Our engineers will work with you, one-on-one, in cases of non-compliance in order to resolve any issues.

We are an accredited third party testing lab and our technical report(s) will satisfy the legal requirement to supply test reports (2014/35/EU, formerly 2006/95/EC, Annex IV (3)) if the European Market Surveillance Authorities make a formal request for your Technical File.

F2 Labs is regularly engaged in helping US manufacturers throughout the CE marking process; beginning with the determination of applicable EU Directives, suggesting appropriate EN standards for testing, performing the testing, and preparing the technical and legal documentation you will be required to store and/or present to the European authorities.

We are ready to help you with your project – whether you are in the design or bid phase of the project or have equipment ready to ship. Call us today.
