This International Standard deals with the safety of electrical appliances for household and
similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances
and 480 V for other appliances.
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 1 Examples of such appliances are catering equipment, cleaning appliances for industrial and 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
– the use of appliances by young children or infirm persons without supervision,
– playing with the appliance by young children.
