It also applies to centrally-sited vacuum cleaners and automatic battery-operated cleaners.
This standard also applies to motorized cleaning heads and current-carrying hoses associated with a particular vacuum cleaner.
Battery-operated appliances and other DC supplied appliances are within the scope of this standard. Dual supply appliances, either mains-supplied or battery-operated, are regarded as battery-operated appliances when operated in the battery mode.
Appliances not intended for normal household use, but which nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops and other premises for normal housekeeping purposes, are within the scope of this standard.
Examples of such appliances are appliances intended to be used for normal housekeeping purposes in hotels, offices, schools, hospitals and similar premises.
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

IEC 60335-2-69:2016 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. They may be provided with a blowing or inflating function. It also deals with the safety of centrally-sited vacuum cleaners, excluding the installation of the system. Requirements on the safe installation of centrally-sited vacuum cleaners are not addressed by this standard but need to be taken into account. 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;
- retail outlets, for example shops and supermarkets;
- business premises, for example offices and banks and
- all uses other than normal housekeeping purposes. 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, and battery powered motors. This standard also applies to machines handling hazardous dust, such as asbestos. This standard does not apply to:
- vacuum cleaners and water-suction cleaning appliances for household use;
- floor treatment machines for commercial use;
- spray extraction machines for commercial use;
- hand-held mains-operated electrical garden blowers, vacuums and blower vacuums;

interest to users
– describe methods for measuring these characteristics and
– be complementary to the methods for dry vacuum cleaners in IEC 60312-1.
NOTE Due to influence of environmental conditions, variations in time, origin of test materials and proficiency of
the operator, most of the described test methods will give more reliable results when applied for comparative
testing of a number of appliances at the same time, in the same laboratory and by the same operator.
See IEC 60335-1 and IEC 60335-2-2 for safety requirements.
