This European Standard deals with the safety of gas, oil and solid-fuel burning appliances having electrical connections, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances.
This standard covers the electrical safety and some other safety aspects of these appliances. All safety aspects of these appliances, including those relevant to the noise emitted, are only covered when the appliance also complies with the relevant product standard for the fuel-burning appliance.
If the appliance incorporates electric heating sources, it also has to comply with the relevant Part 2 of EN 60335.
