What is the current status of Edition No. 3 of IEC 62368-1?

Recently (Sept. 15, 2017) there was an affirmative vote (Approved) within IEC TC108 on the 108/688/CDV for Ed 3 IEC 62368-1.  

The Committee Draft for Vote (CDV) is the first voting stage for a new IEC standard, edition or amendment. Therefore, this vote was important to gauge how National Committees viewed the planned Ed. No. 3.  It passed handily.

Comments from National Committees submitted with their votes will be discussed at the next IEC TC108 Hazard Based Standard Development Team (HBSDT) meeting in Toronto, Canada in late October. UL will be well represented.

Subsequently, a Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) for vote/comment will be distributed, probably around the new year (2018).  If the vote on the FDIS also is successful, this could result in Edition 3 being published as an international standard sometime around Q3 2018.

UL will keep you posted on related developments.
