Final Draft International Standard (FDIS) approved at IEC meeting in Washington

The long-awaited standard IEC 60335-2-113 Safety of household and similar electrical appliances. ‘Particular requirements for cosmetic and beauty care appliances incorporating lasers and intense light sources’ was approved by IEC TC61 in Washington in June 2015 and following editing will be published by IEC in December 2015 and by CENELEC in February 2015 as a European Standard. This is a significant achievement and would not have happened without the active participation of company representatives from the HUD membership.
