Electric toys - Safety

IEC 62115:2017 specifies safety requirements for electric toys that have at least one function dependant on electricity, electric toys being any product designed or intended, whether or not exclusively, for use in play by children under 14 years of age. Examples of electric toys also within the scope of this standard are: - constructional sets; - experimental sets; - functional electric toys (an electric toy that performs and is used in the same way as a product, appliance or installation intended for use by adults, and which may be a scale model of such product, appliance or installation); - electric toy computers as well as a doll's house having an interior lamp. If the packaging is intended to have play value then it is considered to be part of the electric toy. This International Standard only covers the safety aspects of electric toys that relate to an electrical function. This standard covers the safety of electric toys taking power from any source, such as batteries, transformers, solar cells and inductive connections. This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2003, Amendment 1 (2004) and Amendment 2 (2010). This edition constitutes a technical revision. This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition: - the general conditions for tests has been rewritten and modified (Clause 5); - the criteria for reduced testing has been modified (Clause 6); - warnings for toys using button batteries or coin batteries have been added (7.3.3.2, 7.3.3.3); - warnings on ride-on toys have been added (7.5); - the requirements concerning accessibility of batteries have been updated (13.4.1 and 13.4.2); - added requirements to cover toys placed above a child (13.4.4); - added requirements to cover toys connected to other equipment (13.9); - modified the requirements for safety of toys incorporating optical radiation sources (Annex E), to include requirements for using the technical LED data sheet for checking compliance with the specified accessible emission limits (AEL); - updated the details for measurements of the optical radiation from the toy (Annex E); - introduced an informative Annex I concerning measurement methods for toys with an integrated field source generating EMF; - included a normative Annex J concerning safety of remote-controls for electric ride-on toys. The attention of National Committees is drawn to the fact that equipment manufacturers and testing organizations may need a transitional period following publication of a new, amended or revised IEC publication in which to make products in accordance with the new requirements and to equip themselves for conducting new or revised tests. It is the recommendation of the committee that the content of this publication be adopted for implementation nationally not earlier than 12 months or later than 36 months from the date of its publication. Key words: Safety, Electric Toys

Elektrische Spielzeuge - Sicherheit

Jouets électriques - Sécurité

IEC 62115:2017 définit les exigences de sécurité applicables aux jouets électriques qui ont au moins une fonction dépendant de l'électricité, un jouet électrique désignant tout produit conçu ou destiné, exclusivement ou non, à être utilisé à des fins de jeu par des enfants de moins de 14 ans. Exemples de jouets électriques également compris dans le domaine d'application de la présente norme: - les coffrets de construction, - les coffrets d'expériences, - les jouets électriques fonctionnels (un jouet électrique qui a une fonction et une utilisation similaires à un produit, un appareil ou une installation destiné à être utilisé par les adultes, et qui peut être un modèle réduit d'un tel produit, appareil ou installation), - les ordinateurs jouets électriques et - une maison de poupée ayant une lampe à l'intérieur. Si l'emballage est destiné à être utilisé comme jouet électrique, il est alors considéré comme faisant partie du jouet électrique. La présente Norme internationale traite uniquement des aspects de la sécurité des jouets électriques qui ont une fonction dépendant de l’électricité. La présente norme traite des aspects de la sécurité des jouets électriques alimentés par n'importe quelle source, telle que des piles ou accumulateurs, des transformateurs, des piles photovoltaïques et des connexions inductives. Cette deuxième édition annule et remplace la première édition parue en 2003, l'Amendement 1 (2004) et l'Amendement 2 (2010). Cette édition constitue une révision technique. Cette édition inclut les modifications techniques majeures suivantes par rapport à l'édition précédente: - les conditions générales pour les essais ont été reformulées et modifiées (Article 5); - les critères visant à limiter le nombre d'essais ont été modifiés (Article 6); - des mises en garde concernant les jouets utilisant des piles boutons ou des accumulateurs boutons ont été ajoutées (7.3.3.2, 7.3.3.3); - des mises en garde concernant les jouets porteurs ont été ajoutées (7.5); - les exigences concernant l'accessibilité des piles ou accumulateurs ont été mises à jour (13.4.1 et 13.4.2); - exigences ajoutées pour tenir compte des jouets placés au-dessus d'un enfant (13.4.4); - exigences ajoutées pour tenir compte des jouets raccordés à un autre équipement (13.9); - modification des exigences relatives à la sécurité des jouets comportant des sources de rayonnement optique (Annexe E) pour inclure des exigences relatives à l'utilisation des fiches techniques des LED en vue de vérifier la conformité aux limites d'émission accessible (LEA) spécifiées; - mise à jour des informations concernant les mesurages du rayonnement optique émis par le jouet (Annexe E); - introduction d'une Annexe I informative concernant les méthodes de mesure applicables aux jouets avec une source de champ intégrée générant des champs électromagnétiques; - insertion d'une Annexe J normative concernant la sécurité des télécommandes pour les jouets porteurs électriques. L’attention des Comités Nationaux est attirée sur le fait que les fabricants d’appareils et les organismes d’essai peuvent avoir besoin d’une période transitoire après la publication d’une nouvelle publication IEC, ou d’une publication amendée ou révisée, pour fabriquer des produits conformes aux nouvelles exigenc

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 62115 has been prepared by subcommittee IEC technical
committee 61: Safety of household and similar electrical appliances.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2003, Amendment 1

(2004) and Amendment 2 (2010). This edition constitutes a technical revision.

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

edition:

INTRODUCTION

It has been assumed in the drafting of this International Standard that the execution of its

provisions is entrusted to appropriately qualified and experienced people.

As a general rule, electric toys are designed and manufactured for particular categories of

children. Their characteristics are related to the age and stage of development of the children

and their intended use presupposes certain capabilities.

Accidents are frequently due to an electric toy either being given to a child for whom it is not

intended or being used for a purpose other than for which it was designed. This standard does

not eliminate parental responsibility for the appropriate selection of electric toys. It is

assumed that when choosing an electric toy or a game, account is taken of the physical and

mental development of the child who will be playing with it.

The aim of this standard is to reduce risks when playing with electric toys, especially those

risks that are not evident to users. However, it has to be recognized that some electric toys

have risks inherent in their use that cannot be avoided. Consideration has been given to

reasonably foreseeable use, bearing in mind that children are not generally as careful as

adults.

While this standard applies to new electric toys, it nevertheless takes into account the wear

and tear of electric toys in use.

The fact that an electric toy complies with this standard does not absolve parents and other

persons in charge of a child from the responsibility of supervising the child. Supervision is

also necessary when children of various ages have access to the same electric toy.

This standard covers the whole range of electric toys from small button battery or coin battery

operated lights to large ride-on electric toys powered by rechargeable batteries. This results

in different requirements and tests according to the type of electric toy. For some electric

toys, testing can be reduced if particular criteria are met (see Clause 6).

Other safety aspects of electric toys are described in the ISO 8124 series of standards.

An electric toy that complies with the text of this standard will not necessarily be judged to

comply with the safety principles of the standard if, when examined and tested, it is found to

have other features that impair the level of safety covered by these requirements.

A electric toy employing materials or having forms of construction differing from those detailed

in the requirements of this standard may be examined and tested according to the intent of

the requirements and, if found to be substantially equivalent, may be judged to comply with

the standard.

Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) draws attention to the fact that it is claimed that

compliance with this document may involve the use of a patent.

IEC takes no position concerning the evidence, validity and scope of this patent right.

The holder of this patent right has assured the IEC that they are willing to negotiate licen
