New edition of IEC 60335-2-27:2009/A2 for household and similar electrical appliances published

IEC 60335-2-27:2009+A1:2012+A2:2015 is now published and specifies the particular requirements for appliances for skin exposure to optical radiation. This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition.

IEC 60335-2-27:2009+A1:2012+A2:2015 deals with the safety of electrical appliances incorporating emitters for exposing the skin to ultraviolet or infrared radiation, for household and similar use, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances. Appliances intended to be used in tanning salons, beauty parlours and similar premises, are also within the scope of this standard.

The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fourth edition of IEC 60335-2-27 are as follows:
- clarification of radiation measurement procedure (32.101)
- guidelines for exposure time schedule (Annex DD)

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.
