IEC Guide 116:2018(E) is non-mandatory and complements ISO/IEC Guide 51 and establishes guidelines useful for achieving safety in low voltage equipment. These guidelines include risk assessment, in which the knowledge and experience of the design, use, incidents, accidents and harm related to low voltage equipment are brought together in order to assess the risks during the relevant phases of the life of the equipment and to implement the basics for risk reduction measures. This IEC guide should be used by technical committees as far as appropriate and to the extent they decide to apply it. It gives additional guidance to ISO/IEC Guides 50, 51 and 71 on the information required to allow risk assessment to be carried out performed.
This second edition of IEC Guide 116 cancels and replaces its first edition published in 2010 and constitutes a technical revision; main changes with respect to the first edition are as follows:
- addition of a clause dealing with safety related security aspects, derived from the IEC 62443 series;
- reference to “domestic animals” rather than to “livestock”;
- alignment of definitions and Figure 2 with the latest edition of ISO/IEC Guide 51 (2014);

IEC Guide 117:2010(E) provides guidance for assessing the risk, to any person, of a burn from contact with hot touchable surfaces of electrotechnical equipment. Establishes surface temperature limits, where such limits are required, and describes the maximum contact periods with a hot surface that any person may be subjected to without being exposed to a risk of burn. Curves of maximum temperatures versus contact times are described for different types of material with different types of surfaces. These temperature limit values shall be taken into consideration by technical committees in determining surface temperature limits in product standards.
