LVD stands for the Low Voltage Directive, a European Union directive that governs electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits. The purpose of the LVD is to ensure that electrical equipment is safe for consumers and users by setting essential health and safety requirements.
Manufacturers and importers of electrical equipment must ensure that their products meet these standards and may need to obtain certification or perform testing to demonstrate compliance before placing products on the market within the European Union.
The certification process involves assessing the electrical equipment to ensure it meets the relevant safety standards and requirements for electrical safety. This can include testing for insulation, protection against electric shock, temperature limits, and other safety aspects related to low voltage operation.
It’s important to work with authorized certification bodies or agencies that are recognized for LVD certification to ensure compliance with the directive and access to European markets for your electrical equipment.
