(LVD) The Low Voltage Directive 2006/95 / EC was the oldest regulation on the market prior to adoption. 
This regulation was adopted on 26 December 2005 and 
came into force in approximately 20 days on 16 January 2007. At the same time, the former LVD Regulation 73/23 / EEC was abolished.

With the date of 29 March 2014, the Low Voltage Directive has been reshaped and 
published in the Official Journal of the EU under the number L 96. There is a transition period until 20 April 2016, and 2014/35 / EU will be effective as of that date .


The products in the market before April 2016 will be evaluated according to the former 2006/95 / EC LVD Regulation, 
and the products that enter the market after April 2016 will be evaluated according to the new 2014/35 / EU LVD Regulation . The new LVD regulation / directive
presents manufacturers and economic actors with a number of changes in European markets compared to the past.
