IEC 60335-2-84:2019 is available as IEC 60335-2-84:2019 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.IEC 60335-2-84:2019 deals with the safety of electric toilet appliances having a rated voltage being not more than 250 V, in which excrement is stored, dried or destructed or which wash or dry parts of the human body. Examples of such electric toilets are the following and they can be used to process garbage such as paper and food waste.
- mouldering toilets;
- package toilets;
- freezing toilets;
- vacuum toilets.
This standard also applies to electric equipment for use with conventional toilets.
Examples of such electric equipment are
- automatic seat covering devices;
- hopping units;
- heated seats;
- pumping units;
- water heaters for spray seats;
- spray seats.
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 young 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 to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);
- chemical toilets;
- toilets in which excrement is destructed by combustion.
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2002, Amendment 1:2008 and Amendment 2:2013. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
- definitions have been renumbered (Clause 3);
- requirements for installation instructions have been updated to reflect the option in 7.101 of the label being placed on the appliance (7.12.1);
- some notes have been converted to normative text (7.101, 22.103, 27.1, 31);
- requirements have been added for appliances that have programmable electronic circuits that limit the number of heating elements and motors from being energized at the same time (22.105, Annex R). 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.
