Electrical and electronic devices


Do you want to put an electrical or electronic device on the market and are you looking for a partner for its certification?

Säfeli is your partner in product certification. We are here to support you from the design phases through production to monitoring once the product is on the market. Certification has never been easier. 


In order to be able to sell a product on the European market, an electrical device must comply with the various directives and regulations  in force.  


The Low Voltage Electrical Equipment Directive is the main regulation  to follow but others may also apply depending on the nature of the electrical device.

For example, the electromagnetic compatibility directive as well as the RoHS directive on the restriction of hazardous materials in electrical equipment.

Low Voltage Directive

The low voltage directive 2014/35/EU is a European directive which aims to guarantee the safety of electrical and electronic devices.

The low voltage is between 50 VAC and 1000 VAC as well as 75VDC and 1500 VD. If you develop  a device within this voltage range, you must apply this guideline.

In order to prove compliance with the Low Voltage Directive, harmonized standards must be followed and in some cases laboratory tests must be carried out. 

EMC directive

The Electromagnetic Compatibility Directive 2014/30/EU is a European directive which aims to guarantee the immunity  electromagnetic interference of devices and to limit disturbances to their environment.  

All  devices  electricity that may be disturbed or disturbed their environment must apply the EMC directive.  

Different IEC standards make it possible to carry out laboratory tests to prove the conformity of electrical and electronic devices.

RoHS directive

The RoHS directive 2011/65/EU aims to limit the use of hazardous substances in electrical and electronic devices.

Examples of restricted substances include:

  • The lead

  • Mercury

  • Cadmium

  • hexavalent chromium

Over time the European Union has added different substances to the list.

WEEE directive

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive 2012/19/EU aims to reduce electronic waste by recycling it.  

Manufacturers must collect their devices in order to bring them  in sorting centers. It is in line with the RoHS directive.

The symbol  the crossed-out dustbin must be affixed to the product. 

Laboratory tests


Some electrical and electronic products must be tested in the laboratory. Thanks to our network of partners, it is possible for us to offer you a whole range of tests in order to meet the requirements of a large number of standards.
