The Compliance Manager’s Guide To Understanding The Benefits Of Hazard-Based Safety Design
Meeting the Requirements of the New IEC 62368-1 Standard
The new global safety standard for consumer electronics apparatus, information and communications technology equipment is IEC 62368-1. For compliance managers, adoption of IEC 62368-1 means changing organizational focus from a product liability emphasis to a hazard-based safety engineering approach. Hazard-based engineering enables risks to be better controlled rather than passively avoided, potentially resulting in simpler product designs. By encouraging your organization to embrace a hazard-based approach to product design, compliance can be transformed from a perceived or real complicating factor to a strong competitive advantage. Compliance to this new standard is set for June 19, 2019.
