In order to help customers become more familiar with an ever-increasing number of standards and changes to them, we are running an occasional feature, focussing our attention each time on a different standard!
You can suggest a standard for the spotlight by e-mailing us your suggestion.
Our spotlight on standards feature begins with EN 61326, “Electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use”.
Information on the development of the new EMC Directive is available.
Information on the renumbering of the Generic standards is also available.
