Abstract

IEC 60335-2-31:2012+A1:2016 deals with the safety of electric range hoods and other cooking fume extractors intended for installing above, beside, behind or under household cooking ranges, hobs and similar cooking appliances, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V. The cooking appliance can be supplied by electricity or other fuels, such as gas. 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. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. 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 or children playing with the appliance. This fifth edition cancels and replaces the fourth edition published in 2002, including its Amendment 1 (2006) and its Amendment 2 (2008). The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fourth edition of IEC 60335-2-31 are as follows:
- added requirements to address range hood installation (7.12.1 and 22.103);
- added construction requirement to address risk of entrapment in rangehoods or down-draft system (20.101);
- deleted reference to ISO 13732-1 from Bibliography. 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 o this publication be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of publication. Keywords: Cooking. Range hood, Fume Extractors This consolidated version consists of the fifth edition (2012) and its amendment 1 (2016). Therefore, no need to order amendment in addition to this publication.

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