IEC/EN 61010-1 + A1 – Measurement, Control, and Laboratory use

21. October 2021

Mid of next year, amendment A1 to EN 61010-1 will become mandatory. Though issued some time ago and already widely used at SIQ, we would like to notify our partners that this amendment will be mandatory in the EU as of 30th May 2022, as stated in the Official Journal.

This amendment introduces some important changes to EN 61010-1 and takes over some requirements that have previously been seen only in national differences (e.g., levels for normal and single fault conditions).

Standards with correct nomenclature:

IEC 61010-1:2010 + A1:2016
EN 61010-1:2010 + A1:2019
