TC12 - Product Safety

Scope - Programme of work

Upcoming meetings

Not yet scheduled.


TC12 aims to complement the IEC 62368 that IEC/TC 108 elaborated on the basis of the 2nd edition of ECMA-287 “Safety of electronic equipment”.

TC12 plans to finalise the “Guidance and comparison between IEC 60950-1 and IEC 62368-1” TR in summer 2012.

The TR provides a mapping and comparison between the clauses of the traditional IEC 60950-1 and the corresponding clauses, requirements and test methods in the new IEC 62368-1 standard.

The tables in this TR identify the corresponding requirements and test methods in IEC 62368-1 for each clause in IEC 60950-1; notable differences between the standards are highlighted to help:

  • those familiar with IEC 60950-1 to adopt the Hazard Based Safety principles in equipment design; and
  • assess the potential impact of requirements in IEC 62368-1 on existing equipment which has been designed using IEC 60950.
  • See the illustration of the basic differences between – traditional, product specific safety compliance and Hazard Based Safety Engineering.
