    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    IEC 60335-2-23:2016 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

    IEC 60335-2-23:2016 deals with the safety of electric appliances for the care of skin or hair of persons or animals and intended for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V. Examples of appliances that are within the scope of this standard are:
    - curling combs;
    - curling irons;
    - curling rollers with separate heaters;
    - facial saunas;
    - hairdryers;
    - hair straighteners;
    - hand dryers;
    - heaters for detachable curlers and permanent-wave appliances. Appliances covered by this standard may incorporate steam-producing or spray-producing devices. Appliances not intended for normal household use but that 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 prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction; children playing with the appliance. This standard does not apply to:
    - 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);
    - shavers, hair clippers and similar appliances;
    - blankets, pads, clothing and similar flexible heating appliances;
    - appliances for skin exposure to optical radiation;
    - sauna heating appliances;
    - cosmetic and beauty care appliances incorporating lasers and intense light sources or appliances intended for medical purposes. This sixth edition cancels and replaces the fifth edition published in 2003 including its Amendment 1 (2008) and its Amendment 2 (2012). This edition constitutes a technical revision. The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fourth edition of IEC 60335-2-23 are as follows (minor changes are not listed):
    - added hair straighteners to the list of examples covered by the standard;
    - modified 7.12 to apply to appliances, and not just to hairdryers;
    - added new instructions in 7.12 for hair straighteners and curling irons;
    - exempted fixed hairdryers and fixed hand dryers from alternative format of instructions;
    - excluded detachable curler surfaces from temperature rise requirement in Subclause 11.8;
    - clarified in Subclause 19.7 that the appliance shall not emit flame after the test;
    - clarified method of test and compliance criteria in Subclause 21.101;
    - added requirement in 22.13 to delineate handles on curling irons and hair straighteners;
    - in 22.103, added a requirement for protection against hair being pulled into hair dryer intake;
    - revised Subclause 24.101 to indicate that protective devices shall not be self-resetting and reviewed and converted notes to normative text in Subclauses 19.7, 22.32, and 25.14. It was established on the basis of the fifth edition (2010) of that standard. 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 its publication. Key words: Skin Care, Hair Care, Curling, Dryers

    This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60335-1:2010.
