This course aims to provide delegates with an understanding of the full requirements of BS EN 60598-1 standard which specifies essential requirements for all types of electrical luminaires in domestic, industrial and OEM markets.
As the main reference document for luminaire compliance, which is also used to support manufacturers’ declaration for LVD conformity, a working knowledge of the standard is invaluable.
This training course was developed following the introduction of edition 8 of BS EN 60598-1 and helps manufacturers understand the critical changes from edition 7. The course also includes information on the latest update +A1:2018.
