This part 1 of International Standard IEC 60598 specifies general requirements for luminaires,incorporating electric light sources for operation from supply voltages up to 1 000 V. The
requirements and related tests of this standard cover: classification, marking, mechanical
construction and electrical construction.
Each section of this part 1 should be read in conjunction with this section 0 and with other
relevant sections to which reference is made.
Each section of IEC 60598-2 details requirements for a particular type of luminaire or group of
luminaires on supply voltages not exceeding 1 000 V. These sections are published separately
for ease of revision and additional sections will be added as and when a need for them is
recognized.
Attention is drawn to the fact that this part 1 covers all aspects of safety (electrical, thermal and
mechanical).
