What is EN 531:2010?


In the world of product safety regulations, various standards are designed and implemented to ensure that products meet certain quality and safety requirements. Two such standards that play a crucial role in the lighting and protective clothing industries are EN 531:2010 and IEC 60598.

EN 531:2010 - Protective clothing for workers exposed to heat

EN 531:2010 is a European standard developed by CEN (European Committee for Standardization) that specifies the requirements and test methods for protective clothing to be worn by workers exposed to heat and flames. The standard aims to minimize burn injuries by establishing minimum levels of protection against thermal hazards.

IEC 60598 - Luminaires – Safety requirements

IEC 60598, published by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), is a global standard that outlines safety requirements for luminaires, also known as lighting fixtures. The standard covers various aspects of luminaire safety, including electrical insulation, resistance to mechanical stress, and protection against fire.


EN 531:2010 and IEC 60598 are two important standards in their respective industries. While EN 531:2010 focuses on providing protective clothing for workers in high-heat environments, IEC 60598 ensures the safety of lighting fixtures. Compliance with these standards is essential to guarantee the well-being of individuals who rely on these products and to maintain quality and safety standards in the industry.
