Main + amendment
IEC 62368-1 applies to audio, video, information, and communication technology equipment, as well as business and office machines with a rated voltage of up to 600V. This standard covers the safety of these types of equipment and does not address their performance or functional characteristics.

IEC 62368-1 helps to identify different types of energy sources and outlines safety measures to protect against these sources. These measures, known as safeguards, are designed to reduce the risk of pain and injury or property damage from fire. IEC 62368-1 provides guidance on how to apply and follow these safeguards. This standard describes safety measures to protect three types of people: the ordinary person, the instructed person, and the skilled person. Unless otherwise stated, the requirements for an ordinary person apply.

This consolidated version consists of the main text and the amendment EN IEC 62368-1:2020/A11:2020. The main text and the amendment can be found separately from the standard’s history. The text of the international standard has been approved in Europe as EN IEC 62368-1:2020 without any changes.
