EN 62368-1 – As mentioned in previous communications, EN 62368-1 was published in Europe during the second half of 2014. The Date of Withdrawal (DoW) of the standards to be superseded, EN 60065 and EN 60950-1, was assigned as of June 20, 2019. However, the Official Journal (OJ) of the European Union has yet to be updated to include EN 62368-1 as a standard formally associated with the Low Voltage Directive (LVD) – this update of the LVD is expected to be published soon.
