TÜV SÜD Product Service

Low Voltage Directive 73/23/EEC (LVD) was adopted by the European
Council on February 19, 1973 with the purpose of harmonizing the laws
of Member States relating to electrical equipment designed for use within
certain voltage limits. In 1993, the LVD was amended by Directive 93/68/EEC
to include the procedures for conformity assessment and CE Marking products.
CE Marking of products that fall under the scope of the Low Voltage Directive
is mandatory, and indicates compliance with the requirements of the European
Electrical equipment covered by the Low Voltage Directive:
With the exception of the equipment listed in Annex II, the directive
applies to electrical equipment designed for use at a rated voltage of
50 to 1000 V for alternating current and 75 to 1500 V for direct current.
Rated voltage refers to the input or output voltage of the equipment and
not voltages which are generated internally. Click
