Scope
This International Standard deals with the safety of toys that have at least one function dependent on electricity. NOTE 1 Examples of toys also within the scope of this standard are – constructional sets; – experimental sets; – functional toys (models that have a function similar to an appliance or installation used by adults); – video toys (toys consisting of a screen and activating means, such as a joystick or keyboard. Separate screens having a rated voltage exceeding 24 V are not considered to be a part of the toy). Additional requirements for experimental sets are given in Annex A. Toys using electricity for secondary functions are within the scope of this standard. NOTE 2 A doll's house having an interior lamp is an example of such a toy. Additional requirements for toys incorporating lasers and light-emitting diodes are given in Annex E. In order to comply with this standard, electric toys also have to comply with ISO 8124-1, since it covers hazards other than those arising by the use of electricity. NOTE 3 Transformers for toys and battery chargers are not considered to be a toy, even if supplied with it. NOTE 4 If it is intended that a child also plays with the packaging, the latter is considered to be part of the toy. NOTE 5 This standard does not apply to – toy steam engines; – scale models for adult collectors; – folk dolls and decorative dolls and other similar articles for adult collectors; – sports equipment; – aquatic equipment intended to be used in deep water; – equipment intended to be used collectively in playgrounds; – amusement machines (IEC 60335-2-82); – professional toys installed in public places (shopping centres, stations, etc.); – products containing heating elements intended for use under the supervision of an adult in a teaching context; – portable child-appealing luminaires (IEC 60598-2-10); – Christmas decorations.
