Electrical safety of network components

When electrical products are put into operation in the European Union, the EC Directives regarding electrical safety have to be fulfilled. A Declaration of Conformity from the manufacturer is required for this, which he draws up independently. In order to be sure that the statements made in the Declaration are correct, previous assessment by the Experts from TÜV NORD CERT is recommended – in particular for imports from countries outside the EU.

Certification – Electrical safety

Both the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC and the EMC Directive 2004/108/EC have to be applied and fulfilled for components (protective devices) and units (inverters, battery charging equipment). The necessary tests are carried out based on the harmonised standards, such as 62109 (for the Low Voltage Directive) and the 61000 series (for the EMC Directive).

TÜV NORD CERT carries out the following operations, among others:

  • Review of the manufacturer’s documentation
  • Measurement of the products and evaluation by an accredited measuring laboratory
  • Evaluation of measuring results
  • Factory and site surveillance and monitoring
  • Issuance of certificates
