Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU Testing and Compliance


The Low Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU is the European legislation which harmonises individual country laws governing the sale of electrical equipment. It relates specifically to the supply or sale of any electrical equipment, in a specified voltage range, within the European Union. The LVD Directive provides all European citizens with a high level of protection whilst giving manufacturers a single legislative framework for the European market.

The LVD Directive covers electrical equipment ranging from 50v to 1000v ac and 75v to 1500v dc. It applies to the voltage of the electrical input or output and not to any voltage that may be present within the equipment.
