Title Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control, and laboratory use - Part 1: General requirements
Project Number 12922
Abstract/Scope Specifies general safety requirements for electrical equipment intended for professional, industrial process, and educational use. It applies to 4 main groups of equipment: (a) Electrical test and measurement equipment such as signal generators, measurement standards, power supplies, transducers, transmitters, etc. (b) Electrical control equipment to control specific values by manual setting, programming or by input variables. (c) Electrical laboratory equipment to measure, indicate, monitor or analyse substances, including in vitro diagnostic (IVD) equipment. (d) Accessories for use with the above (for example, sample handling equipment).

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
