active, Most Current
Organization: IEC
Publication Date: 1 December 2021
Status: active
Page Count: 46
ICS Code (Domestic safety): 13.120
ICS Code (Miscellaneous domestic and commercial equipment): 97.180
scope:

This part of IEC 60335 deals with the safety of electric insect killers for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V, including direct current (DC) supplied appliances and battery-operated appliances.

Appliances not intended for normal household use but that nevertheless can 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.

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.

Attention is drawn to the fact that

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

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

This standard does not apply to

- appliances that function by emitting vaporized chemicals;

- appliances emitting ultrasonic waves;

- 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).

For appliances provided with discharge lamps or tungsten filament lamps, IEC 60598-1 also applies as far as is reasonable.
