The text of the International Standard IEC 60745-2-2:2003, prepared by SC 61F, Safety of hand-held

motor-operated electric tools, of IEC TC 61, Safety of household and similar electrical appliances,

together with the common modifications prepared by the Technical Committee CENELEC TC 61F, Safety

of hand-held and transportable motor-operated electric tools, was submitted to the Unique Acceptance

Procedure and was approved by CENELEC as EN 60745-2-2 on 2002-12-01.
This European Standard supersedes EN 50144-2-2:1999 and EN 50260-2-2:2002.
The following dates were fixed:
- latest date by which the EN has to be implemented
at national level by publication of an identical
national standard or by endorsement (dop) 2004-03-01
- latest date by which the national standards conflicting
with the EN have to be withdrawn (dow) 2005-12-01

Other standards referred to in this European standard are listed in Clause 2. Clause 2 lists the valid

edition of those documents at the time of issue of this EN.
This standard is divided into two parts:

Part 1: General requirements which are common to most hand-held electric motor-operated tools (for the

purpose of this standard referred to simply as tools) which could come within the scope of this


Part 2: Requirements for particular types of tools which either supplement or modify the requirements

given in Part 1 to account for the particular hazards and characteristics of these specific tools.

This European Standard has been prepared under a mandate given to CEN and CENELEC by the

European Commission and the European Free Trade Association and supports the essential health and

safety requirements of the Machinery Directive.

Compliance with the clauses of Part 1 together with this Part 2 provides one means of conforming with

the essential health and safety requirements of the Directive concerned.

CEN/TC 255 is producing standards for non-electric screwdrivers and impact wrenches (EN 792-6).

Warning: Other requirements and other EC Directives can be applicable to the products falling within

the scope of this standard.
This standard follows the overall requirements of EN 292-1 and EN 292-2.

This Part 2-2 is to be used in conjunction with EN 60745-1:2003. When this standard states "addition",

"modification" or "replacement", the relevant text in Part 1 is to be adapted accordingly.

Subclauses and figures which are additional to those in Part 1 are numbered starting from 101.

Subclauses, tables and figures which are additional to those in IEC 60745-2-2 are prefixed “Z”.

NOTE In this standard, the following print types are used:
- requirements: in roman type;
- test specifications: in italic type;
- notes: in smaller roman type.

6 Environmental requirements
This clause of Part 1 is applicable except as follows: Modification:
Screwdrivers are suspended. The bit holder shall be horizontal.
Impact wrenches are held and used as specified in Modification:
Screwdrivers are tested at no-load.

Impact wrenches are tested under load. The load is applied by means of a brake system, so that the

socket driving the brake rotates at a test speed of (45 ± 5) min and the impact mechanism is caused to

operate continuously. The brake as shown in Figure Z101 is supported on a resilient material and

mounted on a bench such that the geometric centre of the tool is 1 m above the reflecting plane. The

details of the brake system are given in Annex B of EN ISO 8662-7.
The feed force shall be just sufficient to obtain a stable operation.
The measurement time shall be approximately 10 s. Modification:
Measurements shall be made in the direction of the reaction torque.

Part 2-2: Particular requirements for screwdrivers
and impact wrenches

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 provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with an IEC
