This Final Draft International Standard is an up to 6 weeks' pre-release of the official publication. It is available for sale during its voting period: 2024-05-17 to 2024-06-28. By purchasing this FDIS now, you will automatically receive, in addition, the Commented version of the final publication.

IEC 60335-2-6:2024 deals with the safety of stationary electric cooking appliances, such as cooking ranges, hobs, and ovens, for household use, 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 including direct current (DC) supplied appliances and battery-operated appliances.
This standard also includes some requirements for ovens that are intended to be used on board ships.
Examples of appliances that are within the scope of this standard are:
- griddles;
- grills;
- induction hobs;
- induction wok elements;
- pyrolytic self-cleaning ovens;
- steam ovens.
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;
- children playing with the appliance.
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;
- 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 intended for commercial catering;
- 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);
- grills, toasters and similar portable cooking appliances (IEC 60335-2-9);
- microwave ovens (IEC 60335-2-25).
This seventh edition cancels and replaces the sixth edition published in 2014 and Amendment 1:2018. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) alignment with IEC 60335-1:2020;
b) deletion of notes (15.2) and conversion of notes to normative text (Clause 1,, 7.103, 11.7, 15.2, 16.2, 22.109, 22.120, 22.132, 22.124, Figure 103);
c) application of test probe 19 (8.1.1, 20.2);
d) alignment of limits on the temperature rise of external accessible surfaces (Clause 11);
e) addition of requirements for automatic regulation systems and remote automatic regulation systems for induction hobs (3.7.103, 3.11.4, 3.11.5, 3.11.101, 7.12, 19.102, 22.40, 22.62, Annex AA);
f) addition of requirements for remote operation of ovens (22.51).
This part 2 is to be used in conjunction with the latest edition of IEC 60335-1 and its amendments unless that edition precludes it; in that case, the latest edition that does not preclude it is used. It was established on the basis of the sixth edition (2020) of that standard.
