This International Standard deals with the safety of electrical motor-operated vacuum cleaners, including back-pack vacuum cleaners, and dust extractors, for wet suction, dry suction, or wet and dry suction, intended for commercial indoor or outdoor use with or without attachments.

It also deals with the safety of centrally-sited vacuum cleaners, excluding the installation of the system.

NOTE 101 Attention is drawn to the fact that additional requirements on the safe installation of centrally-sited vacuum cleaners are not addressed by this standard but need to be taken into account.

NOTE 102 This standard applies to machines for commercial use. The following list, although not comprehensive, gives an indication of locations that are included in the scope:

  • public use areas such as hotels, schools, hospitals;

  • industrial locations, for example factories and manufacturing shops;

They are not equipped with a traction drive. The following power systems are covered:

  • mains powered motors up to a rated voltage of 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances,

  • battery powered motors.

This standard also applies to machines handling hazardous dust, such as asbestos.

NOTE 103 Additional requirements for machines handling hazardous dust are given in Annex AA. Attention is drawn to the fact that in many countries additional requirements on hazardous substances might apply.

NOTE 104 Radioactive substances are not covered by definition of hazardous dust for the purposes of this standard.

However, in general, it does not take into account:

  • children playing with the machine;
