Basic technical directives cover the followings:

The EU Directives listed above that affect our products at present are Machines Directive, the EMC and Low-voltage Directive. Here, the devices targeted by the Machines Directive are defined as devices with moving parts, so our discrete power supplies are not subject to this directive.
