EN 62368-1 –EN 62368-1 was published in Europe during the second half of 2014. The Date of Withdrawal (DoW) of the standards to be superseded, EN 60065 and EN 60950-1, was originally assigned as of June 20, 2019 and was pushed back to Dec 2020.
UL also assigned a December 20, 2020 Effective Date for new equipment/certifications of A/V, IT or ICT equipment, or significant modification of existing equipment/certifications. Continuing certification will be allowed for existing certifications that are not significantly modified after the date. Like in the EU, this date is aligned with the adoption period recommended by IEC TC108 and it will allow AV & ICT equipment manufacturers to both adequately prepare for the transition to the new standard and align their certification strategies to cover two main regions of the world. More information on the associated UL Effective Dates for all the primary UL A/V & ICT standards is outlined in this blog post: https://ctech.ul.com/en/news-new/update-en-62368-1-2014-associated-extended-date-of-cessation-of-presumption-of-conformity-published-in-official-journal-of-european-union/
