Certification mark for BS EN 60950-1

Scope:

The certification mark applies to IT products, including but not limited to computers, adapters, electrical office equipment and IT equipment such as printers, photocopiers and fax machines.

Basis of certification:

The certification mark is based on the BS EN ISO 60950-1 standard. It applies to mains- or battery-powered IT equipment, including electrical office machines, and associated equipment with rated voltages of up to 600 V.

Key words of the certification mark:

  • BS EN 60950-1
    BS stands for British Standard, and thus for the national transposition of the harmonised EN standard. The BS EN 60950-1 standard governs the general safety requirements of various IT products.
  • Safety tested

    The voluntary certification mark with the statement “Safety tested” is issued for products, indicating that the product was tested and certified by the independent third-party organisation of TÜV SÜD Product Service for conformity with the essential technical safety requirements.

  • Production monitored
    Periodic surveillance of the manufacture of a product constitutes the basic premise for certification which includes the award of a certification mark. Certification always requires product testing and regular factory inspections.

    As a third-party expert organisation, TÜV SÜD verifies that the manufacturer is able to maintain consistent quality in line with the requirements throughout high-volume production and has established the necessary quality system, including incoming goods inspections, lists of materials and final product check.

    In addition, calibration of the necessary measuring and monitoring equipment must be ensured. Surveillance and/or monitoring covers the testing of safety-critical components and other materials used. If unauthorised changes are made to the product, the certificate will be withdrawn and the TÜV SÜD certification mark may no longer be used.
