Moldova: Certificates must be updated with safety requirements of EN 62368-1

According to ministry decision No. 555 from November 28th, 2018 and the list of harmonized standards by LVD regulation, the EN 60950 and EN 60065 will be substituted by SM EN 62368-1: 2015 standard on December 20th, 2020.

Taking in account that the EN 60950 or EN 60065 are harmonized standards with the national Radio Equipment Directive TR 1274/2007 which is valid until February 22nd, 2021, manufacturers must update certificates when their products are introduced or placed on the market of the Republic of Moldova after this date.

Respectively, products which are currently still certified (valid CoCs) with EN 60950 or EN 60065 will need to be retested and comply with requirements of SM EN 62368-1. In order to update current certificates, it is necessary to apply for certificate modification and to submit safety test reports performed according to EN 62368-1.
