METHOD OF MEASURING PERFORMANCES OF ELECTRIC
HAIR CLIPPERS OR TRIMMERS FOR HOUSEHOLD USE
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 62863 has been prepared by subcommittee 59L: Small household

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

appliances.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
59L/144/FDIS 59L/146/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this standard can be found in the report on

voting indicated in the above table.

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

METHOD OF MEASURING PERFORMANCES OF ELECTRIC
HAIR CLIPPERS OR TRIMMERS FOR HOUSEHOLD USE
1 Scope

This document applies to reciprocating electric hair clippers or trimmers for household use.

This document deals with the methods of measuring performances of electric hair clippers or

trimmers for household use with a rated voltage not greater than 250V.
This document does not specify safety or performance requirements.

This document does not apply to professional hair clippers or trimmers, animal shearers and

animal clippers, or shavers. For shavers, refer to IEC 61254.
NOTE This document does not cover safety requirements (see IEC 60335-2-8).
2 Normative references

The following documents are referred to in the text in such a way that some or all of their

content constitutes requirements of this document. For dated references, only the edition

cited applies. For undated references, the latest edition of the referenced document (including

any amendments) applies.

of airborne acoustical noise – Part 2: Particular requirements for electric shavers

3 Terms and definitions
For the purposes of this document, the following terms and definitions apply.

ISO and IEC maintain terminological databases for use in standardisation at the following

addresses:
• IEC Electropedia: available at http://www.electropedia.org/
• ISO Online browsing platform: available at http://www.iso.org/obp
3.1
clipper
trimmer

appliance that is designed to cut hair that consists of a motor, drive system, fixed blade

containing teeth and a moving blade containing teeth moving in a reciprocating motion

intended for clipping/trimming, not shaving

Note 1 to entry: Depending on the specific function, clippers are also called trimmers.

3.2
battery-operated hair clipper
battery-operated hair trimmer

hair clipper or trimmer deriving its energy solely from primary batteries or secondary batteries

and not designed for connection to the mains supply or a charger, or from the battery packs

that are supplied by manufacturers together with the hair clipper or trimmer

Note 1 to entry: If the manufacturer supplies a specific charger and rechargeable batteries with the clipper or

trimmer, the combined device is considered as a rechargeable hair clipper or trimmer when performance is

measured.
