Hi
Anyone familiar with EMC Directive be able to tell me if product needs to be tested to safety standards other than EMC standards for compliance with the Directive and CE marking.e.g. a non-medical standard similar to 60601-1?

The EMC Directive only covers EMC. However to apply the CE mark you need to comply with all applicable directives. This may include, for example, the Low Voltage Directive, which deals with electrical safety.
