IEC 62368-1 is the new standard for audio, video, information and communication technology equipment. Based on the Hazard-Based Safety Engineering (HBSE) principles, the standard brings real advantages to manufacturers of modern electronic equipment and components:

  • More performance-based (vs. prescriptive) requirements
  • Greater ability to introduce innovative designs, technologies and constructions into products

With fewer prescriptive requirements, the new standard will keep pace with new products and emerging technology while offering greater flexibility in designing safe products. In addition, the standard makes it easy to accommodate legacy components.
