Publication Date: 1 October 2022
Status: active
Page Count: 40
ICS Code (Laundry appliances): 97.060
scope:

This part of IEC 60335 deals with the safety of electric fabric steamers intended 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 possibly pose a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, laundries and dry cleaners, 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 intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);

- electric irons (IEC 60335-2-3);

- ironers (IEC 60335-2-44);

- surface-cleaning appliances for household use employing liquids or steam (IEC 60335-2-54);

- appliances connected to the water mains.
