Basic Concepts & Requirements
Type approval is granted to a product that meets a minimum set of regulatory, technical and safetyrequirements.
Generally, type approval is required before a product is allowed to be sold in a particular country, so the requirements for a given product will vary around the world.
- Safety (LVD, SAR, radiated emissions)
- Electromagnetic Compatibility (emissions and immunity)
- Efficient use of radiofrequency spectrum
- To essential requirements
- Additional, e.g. interoperability, emergency …
- Not practical in type approval
- This is a real problem everybody faces
Subject of the discussion
of this workshop!
Low Voltage Directive (LVD) – Directive 2006/95/EC

Decide upon TAL framework
- cannot be solved by means of TA as those terminals enter the market illegally
- can be solved by menas of TA only to some extent
Electrical products are now the cause of 80% of all fires.
Technology trend leads to reduction and minimization of electronic circuits.
The concentration of elements and concentration of electric power per mm2 is increasing.
Electrical products can fail and may not guarante full life time.
Select the product categories
Choose the corresponding standards
Equip the test laboratory, acquire knowledge and experience
Enforce safety regulations in the country
Determine the penalty
Implement controls on the market
Prepare enough place for:
Warehouse for measurement and IUT equipment
Filtering the Internal AC main power and IT network (safety fuse and separate distribution)
Long term tests (tests can take more than 1 month)
Temperature&humidy tests (to assure separate place for noisy test equipment (temperature&humidity chamber))
AC/AC or DC/DC variation
