COMMISSION IMPLEMENTING DECISION (EU) 2019/1956

of 26 November 2019

on the harmonised standards for electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits and drafted in support of Directive 2014/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council

THE EUROPEAN COMMISSION,

Having regard to the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union,

Having regard to Regulation (EU) No 1025/2012 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2012 on European standardisation, amending Council Directives 89/686/EEC and 93/15/EEC and Directives 94/9/EC, 94/25/EC, 95/16/EC, 97/23/EC, 98/34/EC, 2004/22/EC, 2007/23/EC, 2009/23/EC and 2009/105/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and repealing Council Decision 87/95/EEC and Decision No 1673/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council (1), and in particular Article 10(6) thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

In accordance with Article 12 of Directive 2014/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council (2), electrical equipment which is in conformity with harmonised standards or parts thereof, the references of which have been published in the Official Journal of the European Union, is to be presumed to be in conformity with the safety objectives referred to in Article 3 of that Directive and set out in Annex I to that Directive, covered by those harmonised standards or parts thereof.

(2)

By letter M/511 of 8 November 2012, the Commission made a request to the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN), the European Committee for Electrotechnical Standardisation (Cenelec) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) for providing the first full list of the titles of harmonised standards and for the drafting, revision and the completion of harmonised standards, for electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits in support of Directive 2014/35/EU. The safety objectives referred to in Article 3 of Directive 2014/35/EU and set out in Annex I to that Directive have not changed since the request was made to CEN, Cenelec and ETSI.

(3)

On the basis of the request M/511 CEN and Cenelec drafted the following harmonised standards and amendments thereto: EN 60204-1:2018 for electrical equipment of machines; EN 60335-1:2012/A13:2017, EN 60335-2-4:2010/A11:2018, EN 60335-2-15:2016, EN 60335-2-16:2003/A11:2018, EN 60335-2-28:2003/A11:2018, EN 60335-2-29:2004/A11:2018, EN 60335-2-55:2003/A11:2018, EN 60335-2-59:2003/A11:2018, EN 60335-2-74:2003/A11:2018, EN 60335-2-85:2003/A11:2018, EN 60335-2-109:2010/A1:2018 and EN 60335-2-109:2010/A2:2018 for household and similar electrical appliances; EN 60715:2017, EN 60947-2:2017, EN 60947-5-1:2017 and EN 60947-5-5:1997/A2:2017 for low voltage switchgear and controlgear; EN 60898-1:2019, EN 61008-1:2012/A12:2017, EN 62606:2013/A1:2017 and EN 63024:2018 for circuit breakers and similar devices for household and similar applications; EN IEC 61010-2-201:2018 for measuring, control and laboratory equipment; EN IEC 61058-1:2018 for switches for appliances; EN 61643-11:2012/A11:2018 for low voltage surge protective devices; and EN 62560:2012/A11:2019 for lamps and related equipment.

(4)

The Commission, together with CEN and Cenelec, has assessed whether these standards and amendments thereto, drafted by CEN and Cenelec, comply with the request M/511.

(5)

These standards and amendments thereto satisfy the safety objectives which they aim to cover and which are set out in Directive 2014/35/EU. It is therefore appropriate to publish the references of those standards in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(6)

Several harmonised standards drafted by CEN and Cenelec replace the following harmonised standards, including their amendments, the references to which are published in the Official Journal of the European Union (3): EN 50557:2011 replaced by EN 63024:2018; EN 60204-1:2006 replaced by EN 60204-1:2018; EN 60335-2-15:2002 replaced by EN 60335-2-15:2016; EN 60715:2001 replaced by EN 60715:2017; EN 60898-1:2003 replaced by EN 60898-1:2019; EN 60947-2:2006 replaced by EN 60947-2:2017; EN 60947-5-1:2004 replaced by EN 60947-5-1:2017; EN 61010-2-201:2013 replaced by EN IEC 61010-2-201:2018; and EN 61058-1:2002 replaced by EN IEC 61058-1:2018.

(7)

The amendments drafted by CEN and Cenelec amend the following harmonised standards: EN 60335-1:2012, EN 60335-2-4:2010, EN 60335-2-16:2003, EN 60335-2-28:2003, EN 60335-2-29:2004, EN 60335-2-55:2003, EN 60335-2-59:2003, EN 60335-2-74:2003, EN 60335-2-85:2003, EN 60335-2-109:2010, EN 60947-5-5:1997, EN 61008-1:2012, EN 61643-11:2012 and EN 62560:2012, EN 62606:2013, the references to which are published in the Official Journal of the European Union (4); as well as EN 60335-2-15:2016 the reference to which is not yet published.

(8)

CEN and Cenelec also drafted the following corrigenda: corrigendum EN 60529:1991/AC:2016-12 correcting harmonised standard EN 60529:1991 and corrigendum EN 60529:1991/A2:2013/AC:2019-02 correcting harmonised standard EN 60529:1991/A2:2013 for enclosures, the references to which are published in the Official Journal of the European Union (5); corrigenda EN 60598-2-22:2014/AC:2016-05 and EN 60598-2-22:2014/AC:2016-09 correcting harmonised standard EN 60598-2-22:2014 for lamps and related equipment, the reference to which is published in the Official Journal of the European Union (6); corrigendum EN 61008-1:2012/A1:2014/AC:2016-06 correcting harmonised standard EN 61008-1:2012/A1 for circuit breakers and similar devices for household and similar applications, the reference to which is published in the Official Journal of the European Union (7); and corrigendum EN 61851-23:2014/AC:2016-06 correcting harmonised standard EN 61851-23:2014 for electrical systems for electric road vehicles, the reference to which is published in the Official Journal of the European Union (8). Due to the fact that these corrigenda introduce technical corrections and in order to ensure correct and consistent application of harmonised standards the references to which previously published, it is appropriate to publish the references of those harmonised standards together with the references of the corrigenda in the Official Journal of the European Union.

(9)

It is therefore necessary to withdraw the references of the standards that are replaced, amended or corrected, from the Official Journal of the European Union. In order to give manufacturers sufficient time to prepare for application of the replacing, the amending and the correcting harmonised standards, it is necessary to defer the withdrawal of the harmonised standards that are replaced, amended or corrected.

(10)

Compliance with a harmonised standard confers a presumption of conformity with the corresponding essential requirements, including the safety objectives, set out in Union harmonisation legislation from the date of publication of the reference of such standard in the Official Journal of the European Union. This Decision should therefore enter into force on the day of its publication,

HAS ADOPTED THIS DECISION:

Article 1

The references to harmonised standards for electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits drafted in support of Directive 2014/35/EU,listed in Annex I to this Decision, are hereby published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Article 2
