Yet Another List of Harmonized Standards for Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC Published

Within 3 months of the last update, the European Commission on Thursday published an update to the list of European harmonized standards that pertain to the Low Voltage Directive (2006/95/EC). Manufacturers of CE marked electrical equipment should if the standards they have applied for the CE marking testing or conformity assessment have been updated, or whether new relevant standards have been introduced.

The application of the relevant European harmonized standards lead to a presumption of conformity that the CE requirements have been fulfilled. However, when standards are updated, the presumption of conformity for the old version is repealed. In that case, the CE marking may not be affixed anymore.
If the European harmonized standards that you have used indeed have been updated, you need to check the new version of the standard, and where necessary repeat the conformity assessment.

The new list of standards will be added to our Library shortly.

  1. Hi Hans,
    I wonder if you know the answer to my question regarding harmonised standards: I have a reflective mirror that has a light built in LED light. The light is turned on by an Infrared motion sensor. I want all components to be CE marked but I’m unsure whether to ask my supplier to test this switch to EN 60669-2-1 (switches) OR whether to have it tested to EN 63147 (Lamp control gear)
    best regards
