Manufacturers whose products fall under the scope of the Low Voltage Directive will have to go through five different types of product safety testing to get them CE marked. They are, as follows:
- Electrical safety: the product doesn't cause electrical shocks if used within its specified range.
- Mechanical safety: the product is stable and cannot harm the user.
- Thermal safety: the electrical device doesn't catch fire and harm the user, and its components work within their thermal range.
- Chemical safety: there aren't any chemical materials that can lead to any danger for the user.
- Radiation safety: the electrical product doesn't emit any dangerous light and/or (non) ionising radiation.
