Low voltage Directive 2006/95/EC

The Low Voltage Directive applies to all electrical equipment designed for use with a voltage rating of between 50 and 1 000 V for alternating current and between 75 and 1 500 V for direct current.

It is a harmonisation directive which superseds existing national regulations. Electrical equipment may only be put on the market if it is in conformity with the requirements of the Directive. Member States may not impede free circulation or the marketing of conforming equipment.

Because of the broad scope of the Directive, there are a large number of standards which can help you comply, depending on which products you are involved with.
