This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.
This International Standard deals with the safety of gas, oil and solid-fuel burning appliances having electrical connections, for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances.
This standard covers the electrical safety and some other safety aspects of these appliances. All safety aspects are covered when the appliance also complies with the relevant standard for the fuel-burning appliance. If the appliance incorporates electric heating sources, safety aspects concerning these electric sources are covered when the appliance also complies with the relevant part 2 of IEC 60335.
NOTE 101 Examples of appliances within the scope of this standard are
– central heating boilers;
– commercial catering equipment;
– cooking appliances;
– laundry and cleaning appliances;
– room heaters;
– warm air heaters;
– water heaters.
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.
This standard deals with the reasonably foreseeable hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons.
However, in general, it does not take into account
– persons (including children) whose
• physical, sensory or mental capabilities; or
• lack of experience and knowledge prevent them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction;
– children playing with the appliance.
NOTE 102 Attention is drawn to the fact that
– for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements may be necessary;
– in many countries, additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour and similar authorities.
NOTE 103 This standard does not apply to
– appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes;
[In the second paragraph, replace “250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances” with “750 V”]
[Replace the second sentence of the third paragraph with the following]
All safety aspects are covered when the appliance also complies with the relevant standard for the fuel-burning appliance. At the time of this publication, the relevant standards for oil fuel-burning appliances are the CSA B140 series of Standards, and the relevant standards for gas fuel-burning appliances are as follows:
CSA Group gas appliance Standards series*:
1.XI —I Food Processing and Food Refrigeration;
2.XI —I Gas-Fired Domestic and Commercial Heating Equipment and Air Conditioning;
3.XI —I Large Input Commercial and Industrial Equipment (Over 400 000 BTU/h);
4.XI —I Domestic and Commercial Water Heaters and Boilers;
5.XI —I Incineration;
6.X I —I Accessories;
7.XI —I Laundry Equipment;
8.XI —I Hose, Couplings and Assemblies;
9.XI —I Manual Valves;
11.XI—I Portable Type Camping Equipment;
12.XI—I Natural and Propane Fuelled Industrial Engines;B149.1; and B149.2.
* For the categories classified from 1 to 12 above, the “.X” represents the number in the designation for particular CSA Group Standards in that category. For example, CSA 1.4 covers refrigerators using gas fuel.
[In Note 103, delete the first dashed item]
[Add the following paragraph]
This Standard applies to the safety of such equipment designed and constructed for installation and use in accordance with CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, and installation codes for the fuel-burning appliance.
