|Publication Date:||1 May 2016|
|ICS Code (Home economics in general):||97.020|
This introduction is intended to provide an appreciation of the principles on which the requirements of this standard are based. Such an understanding is essential in order that safe apparatus can be designed and manufactured.
The requirements of this standard are intended to provide protection to persons as well as to the surroundings of the apparatus.
Attention is drawn to the principle that the requirements, which are standardized, are the minimum considered necessary to establish a satisfactory level of safety.
Further development in techniques and technologies may entail the need for future modification of this standard.
NOTE The expression "protection to the surroundings of the apparatus" implies that this protection should also include protection of the natural environment in which the apparatus is intended to be used, taking into account the life cycle of the apparatus, i.e. manufacturing, use, maintenance, disposal and possible end-of-life recycling of parts of the apparatus.
