Draft Scope/Description:


This clause of Part 1 is replaced by the following.

This standard deals with the safety of electrically operated commercial kitchen machines not intended for household and similar 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.

NOTE 101 These appliances are used for the commercial processing of food, for example in kitchens of restaurants, canteens, hospitals and in commercial enterprises such as bakeries, butcheries, etc.

NOTE 102 Examples of kitchen machines are

– mixers;
– liquid or food blenders;
– kneaders;
– beaters;
– shredders;
– graters;
– mincers;
– slicers;
– peelers;
– tin openers;
– coffee grinders;
– machines used for washing and/or drying food;
– portioning machines;
– pastry rollers;
– noodle strip cutters;
– food processors;
– beam mixers.

This standard also applies to appliances which, in order to facilitate transport, are supplied in several parts (sub-assemblies) which, when assembled at the place of installation, form a constructional unit without the use of any additional parts.

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.

NOTE 103 Attention is drawn to the fact that

– for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements may 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.

NOTE 104 This standard does not apply to

– 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);
– appliances for continuous process appliances for the mass production of food;
– independent conveying equipment, such as food distribution belts.
