Luminaires - Part 1: General requirements and tests (IEC 60598-1:2020)

This Part 1 of IEC 60598 specifies general requirements for luminaires, incorporating electric
light sources for operation from supply voltages up to 1 000 V. The requirements and related
tests of this document cover: classification, marking, mechanical construction, electrical
construction and photobiological safety.
Each section of this Part 1 is read in conjunction with this Section 0 and with other relevant
sections to which reference is made.
Each part of IEC 60598-2 details requirements for a particular type of luminaire or group of
luminaires on supply voltages not exceeding 1 000 V. These parts are published separately
for ease of revision and additional sections will be added as and when a need for them is
recognized.
The presentation of photometric data for luminaires is under consideration by the International
Commission on Illumination (CIE) and is not, therefore, included in this Part 1.
Requirements are included in this Part 1 for luminaires incorporating ignitors with nominal
peak values of the voltage pulse not exceeding those of Table 11.2. The requirements apply
to luminaires with ignitors built into ballasts and to luminaires with ignitors separate from
ballasts. For luminaires with ignitors built into lamps, the requirements are under
consideration.
Requirements for semi-luminaires are included in this Part 1.
In general, this Part 1 covers safety requirements for luminaires. The object of this Part 1 is to
provide a set of requirements and tests which are considered to be generally applicable to
most types of luminaires and which can be called up as required by the detail specifications of
IEC 60598-2. This Part 1 is thus not regarded as a specification in itself for any type of
luminaire, and its provisions apply only to particular types of luminaires to the extent
determined by the appropriate part of IEC 60598-2.
The parts of IEC 60598-2, in making reference to any of the sections of Part 1, specify the
extent to which that section is applicable and the order in which the tests are performed; they
also include additional requirements as necessary.
The order in which the sections of Part 1 are numbered has no particular significance as the
order in which their provisions apply is determined for each type of luminaire or group of
luminaires by the appropriate part of IEC 60598-2. All parts of IEC 60598-2 are self-contained
and therefore do not contain references to other parts of IEC 60598-2.
Where the requirements of any of the sections of Part 1 are referred to in the parts of
IEC 60598-2 by the phrase "The requirements of section... of IEC 60598-1 apply", this phrase
is interpreted as meaning that all the requirements of that section of Part 1 apply except those
which are clearly inapplicable to the particular type of luminaire covered by that part of
IEC 60598-2.
For explosion proof luminaires, as covered by IEC 60079, the requirements of IEC 60598
(selecting the appropriate parts 2) are applied in addition to the requirements of IEC 60079. In
the event of any conflict between IEC 60598 and IEC 60079, the requirements of IEC 60079
take priority.
Improvements in safety to take into account the state of the art technology are incorporated in
the standards with revisions and amendments on an ongoing basis. Regional standardization
bodies can include statements in their derived standards to cover products which have
complied with the previous document as shown by the manufacturer or standardization body.
The statements may require that for such products, the previous standard may continue to
apply to production until a defined date after which the new standard shall apply.

Annex ZZ
(informative)
Relationship between this European standard and the safety
objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU [2014 OJ L96] aimed to be
covered

This European Standard has been prepared under a Commission’s standardization request relating to

harmonized standards in the field of the Low Voltage Directive, M/511, to provide one voluntary means

of conforming to safety objectives of Directive 2014/35/EU of the European Parliament and of the

Council of 26 February 2014 on the harmonization of the laws of the Member States relating to the

making available on the market of electrical equipment designed for use within certain voltage limits

[2014 OJ L96].

Once this standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive,

compliance with the normative clauses of this standard given in Table ZZ.1 confers, within the limits of

the scope of this standard, a presumption of conformity with the corresponding safety objectives of

that Directive, and associated EFTA regulations.
