The Objectives and Directives

The primary objective of the governments enforcing these Low Voltage Directives is to ensure the safety of the citizens who use these products in their homes or workplaces. So the equipments being manufactured and marketed either within the country or exported have to be free from the risks. In defining these risks, the Low Voltage Directive lay down 11 different risks or ‘safety objectives,’ which need to be met. These risks will not only encompass the electrical but also mechanical and chemical (if the equipments are capable of emitting any harmful substances) and so on. The aspects of noise and vibrations caused by these equipments will also be governed by the Directive. Even the emission of an electro- magnetic field will fall in the scope of the 11 risks under the LVD. If your products are being exported to the European Union countries, there is no way you can sell your products there without the Low Voltage Directive certification.
