I have a consumer electronic product that operates below the 75v limit of LVD. should I test it for safety?

Strictly speaking the product is outside the scope of the LVD, as the threshold is 75 Volts DC. However, the product must be safe. There may thermal and other energy hazards under fault conditions. It is therefore advisable to test the product under the relevant product standard. The standard does not have a lower voltage limit and it includes suitable tests for products operating at such voltages.

Regards

Amanda

Understannd, I think I will proceed with testing to be safe.

I do not need to self declare under the directive?

That's correct, but all test documentation should be kept for future reference. Please note that if an AC adaptor is supplied with the product then the LVD will apply to the adaptor.
