Ending of Transition Period for standard EN 61010-2-032:2012 Third (3rd) Edition “Safety Requirements for Electrical Equipment for Measurement, Control, and Laboratory Use – Part 2-032: Particular requirements for hand-held and hand-manipulated current sensors for electrical test and measurement”
EN 61010-2-032:2012 Third (3rd) Edition designated Transition Period (Date of Withdraw (DoW)) will be ending 2015-10-31.
From July 13, 2013 to October 31, 2015: There have been two options for your company to apply for TÜV SÜD Certificates covering products within the scope of this Part 2 standard:
Option 1: EN 61010-1:2010 Third (3rd) Edition in conjunctions with EN 61010-2-032:2012 Third (3rd) Edition
Option 2: EN 61010-1:2001 Second (2nd) Edition in conjunctions with EN 61010-2-032:2012 Second (2nd) Edition
After October 31, 2015 only Option 1 is available for NEW and Alternate Constructions of Safety Tested (Listed) and Type Tested (Recognized) products. Existing Certified products will require a Re-evaluation to both current Part 1 and Part 2 standards to be in compliance with European Union Directive Regulations.

1. DOR (date of ratification) = date the CENELEC Technical Board notes the approval of an EN or HD, from which time the standard may be said to be adopted.
2. DAV (date of availability) = date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved EN or HD is distributed by the CENELEC Central Secretariat.
3. DOA (date of announcement) = latest date by which the existence of an EN or HD has to be announced at national level by the CENELEC members.
4. DOP (date of publication) = latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement.
5. DOW (date of withdrawal) = latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN or HD have to be withdrawn.
IEC 61010-2-032:2012 Third Edition, Safety requirements for electrical equipment for measurement, control and laboratory use - Part 2-032: Particular requirements for hand-held and hand-manipulated current sensors for electrical test and measurement, was published in 2012-09.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002. This Part 2 is intended to be used in conjunction with IEC 61010-1 third edition (2010).
Endorsement notice: The corresponding European regulatory standards
EN 61010-2-032:2012 was approved by CENELEC with agreed common modifications as announced (DoA) on 2013-01-31, and it was formally published (DoP) 2013-07-31 by EU countries for replacing previous versions used in certification by their withdraw (DoW) on 2015-10-31.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002. It has the status of a group safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104.
IEC/EN 61010-2-032 3Ed included these important modifications:
This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- A new Type D current sensor has been defined.
- The terminology for MEASUREMENT CATEGORY I has changed. In this Part 2-032, it is termed "not RATED for measurements within MEASUREMENT CATEGORIES II, III, or IV".
- Requirements for markings of measuring circuit TERMINALS and JAWS have been modified.
- CLEARANCES and CREEPAGE DISTANCES have been added for unmated measuring circuit TERMINALS.
- Requirements have been added for specialized measuring circuit TERMINALS.
- The pull test for endcaps of flexible current sensors has been revised.
- Requirements for output circuit leads have been revised.
- Requirements have been added for temperature limits and resistance to heat to prevent thermal HAZARDS from eddy currents and high currents.
- Requirements for circuits or components used as TRANSIENT OVERVOLTAGE limiting devices have been revised.
- Requirements have been added for low battery indication.
- Requirements have been revised and added pertaining to REASONABLY FORESEEABLE MISUSE of measuring circuits, including usage of the current sensor in a manner that might cause arc flash.
- Requirements for MAINS voltage measuring circuits have been added.
- Requirements to prevent HAZARDs from short-circuits have been revised and located in a new Clause 102.
- ROUTINE TESTS have been modified.
- Insulation requirements for measuring circuits have been primarily located in Annex K.
- Annex AA has been added to describe the characteristics of MEASUREMENT CATEGORIES.
- Annex BB has been added to describe HAZARDS that may be encountered when using measuring circuits.
