This Standard applies to decorative lighting strings, decorative lighting outfits, pre-lit trees, and accessories, intended for seasonal or commercial use connected to circuits of 120 V nominal or less by means of an attachment plug, and designed to be used in accordance with the rules of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, in non-hazardous locations.

These requirements cover electrically-assembled

b) parallel-connected lighting strings;

c) decorative outfits;

d) controllers and flashers;

e) motor operated tree stands;

f) flexible light cable systems (rope lights); and

g) string lights for year-round use.

These requirements additionally cover ornaments, which are provided with an adapter for connection to a push-in lampholder and are intended to replace a push-in lamp in a series-connected decorative lighting string.

These requirements do not cover

b) portable luminaries;

c) cord sets, power supply cords, and cord-connected, multiple receptacle extension boxes;

d) fibre-optic devices, if not used in conjunction with decorative lighting; and

e) strings employing candelabra lampholders of the bayonet type.

Decorative lighting products not incorporating lighting strings are covered by the requirements of CSA C22.2 No. 250.4.

In this Standard, "shall" is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; "should" is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and "may" is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
