IEC 62493:2015 applies to the assessment of lighting equipment related to human exposure to electromagnetic fields. The assessment consists of the induced internal electric field for frequencies from 20 kHz to 10 MHz and the specific absorption rate (SAR) for frequencies from 100 kHz to 300 MHz around lighting equipment. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2009. This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) identification of lighting product types deemed to comply with the standard without the need for test;
b) deletion of the need for CISPR-15-compliance as a prerequisite for IEC 62493 compliance;
c) inclusion of the consequences of the ICNIPR 2010 guidelines for (up to 100 kHz);
d) adding some guidance to the Van der Hoofden test head method to improve reproducibility of results;
e) inclusion of compliance demonstration method for products having intentional radiators.
