These requirements cover:

a) Household, commercial, and coin-operated vacuum cleaning machines and blower cleaners, intended for indoor or outdoor use or both;

b) Household, commercial, and coin-operated wet pick-up, dry pick-up, permanently mounted, portable, and central vacuum cleaners and blower cleaner systems;

c) Household electrically powered floor finishing machines, including floor polishers, floor scrubbers, floor sanders, rug shampooers, rug and floor washers, and similar machines;

d) Appliances covered by this Standard that are marked as being provided with double insulation and that employ double insulation in place of grounding in accordance with the Exception to Clause 4.16.1;

e) Portable rechargeable battery-powered appliances for indoor or outdoor use with rechargeable non-user and user-replaceable batteries; see Clause 7;

f) Current-carrying hoses for use with vacuum cleaner/motorized nozzle combination appliances intended for household, dry pick-up, indoor use; see Clause 8;

g) Current-carrying hoses for use with motorized nozzles intended for use with central vacuum cleaning systems intended for household, dry pick-up, indoor use; see Clause 8;

h) Wet pick-up current-carrying hoses for use with household, indoor use carpet cleaning equipment; see Clause 8;

i) Grounded current-carrying hoses for use with motorized nozzles intended for household indoor use; see Clause 8;

j) Electrified wall valves for connection of current-carrying hose/motorized nozzle combinations for central vacuum cleaning systems intended for household use; see Clause 8;

k) Household, indoor use, wet/dry vacuum cleaning machines with a steam-cleaning attachment (such as a vacuum provided with a steam generator in the nozzle), where the vacuum is the prominent feature of the appliance as evidenced by the electrical rating of the vacuum function being greater than the electrical rating of the steam-cleaning function; see also Clause 2.3.3. A steam cleaner provided with a vacuum attachment, where the steam-cleaning function is the prominent feature, is covered under the requirements of C22.2 No. 64 and UL 499; and

l) Household and commercial floor sweepers;

m) Vacuum cleaners intended for installation in recreational vehicles (R/V) or marine vessels;

n) Appliances powered through a vehicle battery adapter.

These requirements do not cover appliances rated more than 250 V. An appliance that utilizes some other source of energy, such as gas or steam, in addition to electric energy is to be investigated under these requirements and under such additional requirements as are applicable to the appliance under consideration.

These requirements do not cover appliances for use in locations such as those areas of hospitals, laboratories, institutions, and the like where dispersion of pathological, chemical, physical, radioactive or other agents could produce a risk to health. Appliances intended for use in such locations are investigated under these requirements and under such additional requirements as are applicable to the appliance, with appropriate consideration being given to the specific intended use.

These requirements apply only to a specific type or types of appliances, such as a vacuum cleaner or floor finishing machine, if the requirement is so identified by specific reference to the type or types involved. Absence of such specific reference or use of the term ″appliance″ indicates that the requirement applies to all appliances covered by this standard. 

Internal-combustion engine powered floor cleaning machines for industrial/commercial use, such as floor buffers, scrubbers, sweepers, extractors, and polishers, are covered under UL 558. 

These requirements do not cover machines that generate pressure in excess of 2.5 MPa (360 psi).
