For appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements may be necessary;

This standard does not apply to

appliances intended exclusively for household use;

appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes;

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);

appliances for washing cars;

dispensing appliances and vending machines (IEC 60335-2-75);

This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002 including its Amendment 1 (2008) and its Amendment 2 (2015). This edition constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:

- It is clarified that 22.44 is not applicable to amusement machines;

- Modified some Notes to make them normative text (5.6, 11.2, 11.8, 15.2.101, 15.2.102, 15.2.104, 15.3, 19.4, 19.101, 24.101, 24.102) and

- Reference to 22.106 is made in Annex R.

This publication has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

This part 2-82 is to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 60335-1 and its amendments. It was established on the basis of IEC 60335-1:2010, its Amendment 1:2013 and its Amendment 2:2016.

The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests.

It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication.
