EN 60950-1, Amendment 2 – Deadline Approaching Quickly

by G&M Compliance (June 3, 2016)

If you are shipping Information Technology Equipment to Europe, it must comply with the new Amendment 2 (A2) version of the standard (EN 60950-1) effective July 2, 2016.

In general, the technical differences most likely to have an effect on equipment are:

1. MOVs (VDRs) must comply with new requirements (many MOVs already comply with new requirements)
2. Lithium ion Batteries (not including button cells) must be approved to EN 62133

For manufacturers of end systems, the first point above can generally be addressed by ensuring that your power supply(s) is compliant with the A2 amendment.
