Mandatory use of new amendment A1 of EN 61010-1 (Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use) from 2022

05. July 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 sets some important changes to EN 61010-1 and takes over some requirements that have previously been introduced only within some specific national deviations (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
