Description

Objective of this Standard is to provide a set of criteria for the safety of electrical equipment before being placed on the market.

For electrical equipment that is required to be approved/certified/registered by electrical safety legislation before being placed on the market, there are specific regulatory requirements additional to the requirements given in this Standard. AS/NZS 3820:2020 is not a substitute for Standards that set out objective safety requirements based on testing. Rather it provides a high-level generic description of the safety outcomes to be achieved and is intended to assist in providing a basis for regulatory uniformity.

Specific product Standards provide measurable criteria that are regarded as ensuring that the outcomes described in this Standard will be met. AS/NZS 3820:2020 will supersede AS/NZS 3820:2009 on 26 June 2021.
