The principal changes in this edition as compared with the fourth edition of IEC 60335-2-30 are as follows:
- some additional instructions are introduced for heaters without a built-in thermostat,
- or those installed in the floor or in a bathroom (7.12 and 7.12.1);
- a spillage test is introduced for appliances having a grille and - that are built into the floor (15.2).
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 publication.

This publication is to be read in conjunction with IEC 60335-1:2010. The contents of the corrigendum of November 2014 have been included in this copy. This consolidated version consists of the fifth edition (1997) and its amendment 1 (2005). Therefore, no need to order amendment in addition to this publication.
