IEC 60335-2-62:2019 is available as IEC 60335-2-62:2019 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.

IEC 60335-2-62:2019 deals with the safety of electrically operated commercial rinsing sinks used in commercial kitchens, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances connected between one phase and neutral, and 480 V for other appliances. These appliances are used for example in kitchens of restaurants, canteens, hospitals and commercial enterprises such as bakeries, butcheries, etc. The electrical part of appliances making use of other forms of energy is also within the scope of this standard. As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by these types of appliances. Attention is drawn to the fact that:
- for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements can be necessary;
- for appliances intended to be used in tropical countries, special requirements can be necessary;
- in many countries, additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour, the national water supply authorities and similar authorities.
This standard does not apply to:
- appliances designed primarily for sterilizing to clinical standards;
- dishwashers (IEC 60335-2-58);
- appliances designed 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).
This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 2002 and its Amendment 1:2008. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- indicates specific values for temperatures for accessible parts and water and aligns the text with IEC 60335-1, Edition 5, and its Amendments 1 and 2;
- requires the application of test probe 12 for the verification of access to live parts (8.101);
- foresees the use of a specific test probe for the measurements of temperatures of accessible surfaces (11.3);
- washing vessel (11.8);
- modification on leakage current defining the value for appliances with a power consumption less than 1 kW (13.2);
- addition of specific requirements concerning types of screws to be used for electrical connections and connections for earth continuity (Clause 28);
- addition of informative Annex P dealing with leakage currents for appliances used in tropical climates.
This part 2 is to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 60335-1 and its amendments. It was established on the basis of the fifth edition (2010) of that standard.
