BS EN 60335-2-17:2002+A2:2009 Household and similar electrical appliances. Safety. Particular requirements for blankets, pads, clothing and similar flexible heating appliances

BS EN 60335-2-17 deals with the safety of electric blankets, pads and appliances that heat the bed or human body, for household and similar purposes, with rated voltage less than 250 V. BS EN 60335-2-17 also applies to control units supplied with the appliance.

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 lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction
  • Children playing with the appliance.

This standard does not apply to:

  • Appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of acorrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas)
  • Rigid bed warmers, such as those of metal or ceramic material
  • Water bed heaters (IEC 60335-2-66)
  • Weating appliances for breeding and rearing animals (IEC 60335-2-71)
  • Foot warmers and heating mats (IEC 60335-2-81);
  • Appliances specifically intended for use under medical supervision (IEC 60601-2-35).

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 in beauty parlours or by persons
in cold ambient temperatures, are within the scope of BS EN 60335-2-17.
