Part 2-1: Particular requirements for dry vacuum cleaners
FOREWORD

1) The International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) is a worldwide organization for standardization comprising

all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of IEC is to promote international

co-operation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and electronic fields. To this end and

in addition to other activities, IEC publishes International Standards, Technical Specifications, Technical Reports,

Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) and Guides (hereafter referred to as “IEC Publication(s)”). Their

preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in the subject dealt with

may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and non-governmental organizations liaising

with the IEC also participate in this preparation. IEC collaborates closely with the International Organization for

Standardization (ISO) in accordance with conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

2) The formal decisions or agreements of IEC on technical matters express, as nearly as possible, an international

consensus of opinion on the relevant subjects since each technical committee has representation from all

interested IEC National Committees.

3) IEC Publications have the form of recommendations for international use and are accepted by IEC National

Committees in that sense. While all reasonable efforts are made to ensure that the technical content of IEC

Publications is accurate, IEC cannot be held responsible for the way in which they are used or for any

misinterpretation by any end user.

4) In order to promote international uniformity, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC Publications

transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional publications. Any divergence between

any IEC Publication and the corresponding national or regional publication shall be clearly indicated in the latter.

5) IEC itself does not provide any attestation of conformity. Independent certification bodies provide conformity

assessment services and, in some areas, access to IEC marks of conformity. IEC is not responsible for any

services carried out by independent certification bodies.

6) All users should ensure that they have the latest edition of this publication.

7) No liability shall attach to IEC or its directors, employees, servants or agents including individual experts and

members of its technical committees and IEC National Committees for any personal injury, property damage or

other damage of any nature whatsoever, whether direct or indirect, or for costs (including legal fees) and

expenses arising out of the publication, use of, or reliance upon, this IEC Publication or any other IEC

Publications.

8) Attention is drawn to the Normative references cited in this publication. Use of the referenced publications is

indispensable for the correct application of this publication.

9) Attention is drawn to the possibility that some of the elements of this IEC Publication may be the subject of patent

rights. IEC shall not be held responsible for identifying any or all such patent rights.

International Standard IEC 60704-2-1 has been prepared by subcommittee 59F: Surface

cleaning appliances, of IEC technical committee 59: Performance of household and similar

electrical appliances.

This fourth edition cancels and replaces the third edition published in 2014. This edition

constitutes a technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous

edition:
a) product scope is extended to cordless and similar vacuum cleaners;

b) definitions of "cleaning head", "active nozzle" and "standard Wilton test carpet" have been

added;

c) specification of standard Wilton test carpet has been removed; reference is made to

IEC TS 62885-1;

e) topic ageing of test carpet is addressed.
The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
59F/399/FDIS 59F/408/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in the

report on voting indicated in the above table.

This document has been drafted in accordance with the ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2.

This Part 2-1 is intended to be used in conjunction with IEC 60704-1:2010, Household and

similar electrical appliances – Test code for the determination of airborne acoustical noise –

Part 1: General requirements.
NOTE When "Part 1" is mentioned in this standard, it refers to IEC 60704-1:2010.

The relevant text of Part 1 as amended by this document establishes the test code for vacuum

cleaners.

This Part 2-1 supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 60704-1:2010. When

a particular subclause of Part 1 is not mentioned in this Part 2-1, that subclause is applicable

as far as reasonable. Where this standard states "addition", "modification" or "replacement",

the relevant requirements, test specifications or explanatory matter in Part 1 should be adapted

accordingly.

Subclauses, tables, and figures that are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered starting from

101. Additional annexes are lettered AA, BB, etc.

Unless notes are in a new subclause or involve notes in Part 1, they are numbered starting from

101, including those in a replaced clause or subclause.

A list of all the parts in the IEC 60704 series, published under the general title Household and

similar electrical appliances – Test code for the determination of airborne acoustical noise, can

be found on the IEC website.

The committee has decided that the contents of this document will remain unchanged until the

stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to

the specific document. At this date, the document will be

INTRODUCTION

The measuring conditions specified in this part of IEC 60704 provide for sufficient accuracy in

determining the noise emitted and comparing the results of measurements taken by different

laboratories, whilst simulating as far as possible the practical use of vacuum cleaners.

It is recommended to consider the determination of noise levels as part of a comprehensive

testing procedure covering many aspects of properties and performance of household vacuum

cleaners.

NOTE As stated in the introduction to IEC 60704-1, this test code is concerned with airborne noise only.

Part 2-1: Particular requirements for dry vacuum cleaners
1 Scope and object
This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows:
1.1 Scope
1.1.1 General
Replacement:

This part of IEC 60704 is applicable for the determination of airborne acoustical noise of mains

operated and cordless dry vacuum cleaners for household use or under conditions similar to

those in households.

This part of IEC 60704 does not apply to vacuum cleaners for industrial or professional

purposes.

NOTE Particular requirements for dry cleaning robots are specified in IEC 60704-2-17.

1.1.2 Types of noise
Replacement:

The methods specified in ISO 3743-1, ISO 3743-2 and ISO 3744 can be used for measuring

noise emitted by electric vacuum cleaners.
1.1.3 Size of the source
Replacement:

The method specified in ISO 3744 is applicable to noise sources of any size. When applying

ISO 3743-1 and ISO 3743-2, the maximum size of the appliance under test should fulfil the

requirements specified in 1.2 of ISO 3743-1:2010 and 1.3 of ISO 3743-2:1994.
1.2 Object
Addition:

This part of IEC 60704 describes the determination of the noise emission of vacuum cleaners

under normal operating conditions on carpet and hard floor in accordance with 4.6 of

IEC 62885-2.
