Is IEC 60601 mandatory?

IEC 60601 is an international standard that outlines the requirements for electrical equipment and related safety aspects. The question of whether IEC 60601 is mandatory or optional can be a source of confusion for some users. In this article, we will clarify the situation and provide the necessary information to help users make informed decisions.

1. Definition of IEC 60601

IEC 60601 is an international standard that outlines the requirements for electrical equipment and related safety aspects. It is applicable for waterproof testing of electrical and auto parts under high temperature and high pressure. The standard covers various aspects such as marking, testing, and procedures for electrical equipment.

2. Marking requirements

In accordance with the requirements of IEC 60601, markings on controls should be adequately indelible for safety. The standard specifies different marking requirements for different categories of markings. For non-mandatory markings within the requirements of the standard (IEC 60730-1), markings should not be mandatory. For mandatory markings within the requirements of the standard but which are not accessible to the final user when the control is mounted or installed in the equipment, markings should not be mandatory.

3. IEC Test Equipment

IEC Test Equipment is a set of equipment used for testing and inspection of electrical equipment. The equipment is designed to meet the requirements of IEC 60601 and other relevant international standards. The markings on the test equipment should be sufficient resistant to removal and withstand the manual handling in the manufacturer's factory after final inspection, being packed and transported to the equipment manufacturer's factory, and handled during installation.

In conclusion, IEC 60601 is an international standard that outlines the requirements for electrical equipment and related safety aspects. The marking requirements of the standard specify different marking categories for different categories of markings. IEC Test Equipment is a set of equipment designed to meet the requirements of IEC 60601 and other relevant international standards. The markings on the test equipment should be sufficient resistant to removal and withstand the manual handling in the manufacturer's factory after final inspection.
