What products are affected by the legislation?
In general, the law affects products that
- equire electrical current or electromagnetic fields in order to operate,
- lie within the voltage range of < 1000 V (AC) or < 1500 V (DC) and
- are not subject to any exception.
Equipment for private use (B2C) and products for purely commercial applications (B2B) are both covered by the law, although the examples cited in the legislation are mostly B2C products, which frequently leads to misunderstandings.
