Why should you use this standard? 

It deals with the reasonably foreseeable hazards presented by appliances and machines that are encountered by all persons, although it doesn’t take into account things like children playing with appliances or the needs of very vulnerable people. 

The principle objectives of the EU’s Low Voltage Directive (2006/95/EC) and the essential health and safety requirements of the Machinery Directive (2006/42/EC) – which can be applied to some appliances – are covered in this standard. Compliance with this Part 2, when used together with Part 1, provides one means of conformity with the specified essential requirements of the Directives concerned.
