LVD Certification

As an accredited testing laboratory, we’ve helped thousands of manufacturers complete testing for their products and achieve Low Voltage Directive certification.

1.Low Voltage Directive (LVD)

The Low Voltage Directive (LVD) is one of many directives established by the European Union, which sets out safety requirements for electrical and electronic equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits (low voltage).

2.Scope of the directive

The directive applies to all electrical and electronic equipment that operates within a range of voltages from 50 to 1000 volts AC, and 75 to 1500 volts DC. This includes a wide range of products, such as household appliances, computers, lighting equipment, and power tools.

3.Relationship between CE marking and the LVD

The Low Voltage Directive is one of the regulations that a product must comply with to receive CE marking. In other words, if a product is designed to operate within the voltage limits set by the Low Voltage Directive and meets all other relevant EU regulations, it can bear the CE marking.

Other EU regulations include the EMC Directive, RoHS Directive (restricts the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment), and the REACH Regulation (regulates the use of chemicals in products).
