scope:

similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances.

NOTE 1 Battery-operated appliances and other d.c. supplied appliances are within the scope of this standard. Dual supply appliances, either mains-supplied or battery-operated, are regarded as battery-operated appliances when operated in the battery mode. Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, are within the scope of this standard.

NOTE 2 Examples of such appliances are catering equipment, cleaning appliances for commercial use, and appliances for hairdressers. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account

- persons (including children) whose

• physical, sensory or mental capabilities; or

• lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction;

- children playing with the appliance.

NOTE 3 Attention is drawn to the fact that

- for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements may be necessary;

- in many countries, additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour, the national water supply authorities and similar authorities.

NOTE 4 This standard does not apply to

- appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes;

- appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);

- audio, video and similar electronic apparatus (IEC 60065);

- appliances for medical purposes (IEC 60601);

- hand-held motor-operated electric tools (IEC 60745);

- personal computers and similar equipment (IEC 60950-1);

- transportable motor-operated electric tools (IEC 61029).

This International Standard deals with the safety of cosmetic and beauty care appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources for household and similar purposes, where their operation relies on contact with the skin, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V.

NOTE 101 Battery-operated appliances and other d.c. supplied appliances are within the scope of this standard. Dual supply appliances, either mains-supplied or battery-operated, are regarded as battery-operated appliances when operated in the battery mode.

This standard covers appliances with a light emitting surface less than 25 cm2. Appliances with a light emitting surface equal to or greater than 25 cm2 are within the scope of IEC 60335-2-27.

Appliances not intended for normal household use but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public such as appliances intended to be used in beauty salons and similar premises are also within the scope of this standard.

Appliances covered by the scope of this standard include but are not limited to:

- appliances for control of hair growth;

- appliances for skin and beauty care incorporating lasers or intense light sources (ILS).

NOTE 102 Appliances incorporating lasers or intense light sources (ILS) either heat up hair follicles or skin tissue to produce thermal effects or to produce photo-biological effects from specific wavelengths.

As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account:

- persons (including children) whose physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction;

- children playing with the appliance.

NOTE 103 Attention is drawn to the fact that in many countries additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities.

NOTE 104 This standard does not apply to

- appliances for medical purposes (IEC 60601);

- appliances for skin or hair care (IEC 60335-2-23);

- appliances for nail hardening;

- appliances for skin exposure to optical radiation with a light emitting surface equal to or greater than 25 cm2 (IEC 60335-2-27).
