Description

Electrical Product Safety: A Step-by-Step Guide to LVD Self Assessment provides a step-by-step approach to meeting the LVD and reducing safety approval costs. It is a practical and easy to follow guide aimed at helping manufacturers of electrical products, and in particular small and medium sized businesses to understand the requirements of the LV regulations, understand the basic safety principles, self assess their products and create customised safety reports. The guide is presented in four parts: the first part examines the regulations, their enforcement and the concept of due diligence; the second and most detailed part takes the reader through the process of product self evaluation and report compilation; part three deals with the documentation, i.e. how to compile a technical file and how to prepare a declaration of conformity; finally part four explains how to set up factory and production control systems. Electrical Product Safety has been written by a Trading Standards Office (D. Holland) and an experienced Safety Approvals Engineer (J. Tzimenakis).
