What is this standard about?

BS EN 60335-1 provides best practice recommendations for safety testing household and similar electrical appliances. This amendment aligns the standard with the legislative framework of the new Low Voltage Directive.

Who is this standard for?

  • Manufacturers of electrical household equipment
  • Suppliers of components for electrical household equipment
  • Organizations selling electrical household equipment
  • Regulatory bodies
  • Inspectors (Test house engineers)
  • Trading Standards
  • Consumer groups

Why should you use this standard?

Use of this standard will help make domestic electrical appliances safer. In addition, compliance with it, when used together with the relevant Part 2, means presumption of conformity to the latest Low Voltage Directive and Machinery Directive.

The standard:

  • Specifies general requirements for the safety of household and similar electrical appliances providing their rated voltage is not more than 250 V for single-phase and 480 V for other appliances
  • Looks at common hazards of household equipment or electrically-operated devices that could cause injury to persons in and around the house
  • Looks at the general requirements and conditions to test the domestic safety of electrical household appliances
  • Defines the classification and marking of electrical equipment
  • Demonstrates how to ensure protection against live parts
  • Explains heating and void, as well as leakage currents and electric strength at operating temperatures
  • Covers other topics including moisture resistance, stability and mechanical hazards, internal wiring and connections

NOTE 1: The use of appliances by unsupervised young children, or children playing with electrical household equipment, is not covered in this standard.

What's changed since the last update?

Annex ZZ has been added so that the standard can be listed in the Official Journal of the European Union under the New Voltage Directive 2014/35/EU which came into force in April 2016, and the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC. This aligns the standard with the new legislative framework of the Low Voltage Directive.

NOTE 2: This standard will supersede BS EN 60335-1:2012+A11:2014 but the latter standard will not be withdrawn for three years during which time both standards will be current.
