UL/CSA/IEC 62368-1 is the electrical safety standard for audio/video, informational, and communication technology equipment. Used to evaluate various electronics from power supplies for LED fixtures to splitters, and of course ICT equipment, this standard is now in its third revision.

In addition to bringing the scope of two previous standards under the same umbrella, IEC 62368-1 represents a significant departure from what a standard normally looks like. Instead of being based on descriptions of requirements, the standard focuses on the risks that may occur and gives manufacturers greater leeway in deciding how to design the protection.
