Is outdoor AV/ICT equipment covered by UL/EN/IEC 62368?

You asked if UL/EN/IEC 62368 covers outdoor AV/ICT equipment. 

In Edition No. 2 of IEC 62368-1, the scope (Cl 1) references IEC 60950-22 for AV/ICT equipment that may be installed outdoors.

In Edition No. 3 of IEC 62368-1, the requirements for outdoor AV/ICT equipment are incorporated into the Part 1 Standard, and there will not be a separate Part 2 standard like there was for 60950-x.

Edition 3's Annex Y (Construction requirements for outdoor enclosures) will contain most of the requirements found previously in -22, but other clauses also incorporate some requirements, such as Clause 5 and voltage limit considerations for accessible contact of potentially wet parts.

CSA/UL and EN 62368-1 Ed 2 and Ed 3 are/will be structured similarly.
