Elektrische Spielzeuge - Sicherheit

Jouets électriques - Sécurité

Električne igrače - Varnost - Dopolnilo A2

Ta mednarodni standard obravnava varnost igrač, ki imajo vsaj eno funkcijo, odvisno od elektrike. Dodatne zahteve za eksperimentalne sete so podane v dodatku A. Igrače, ki uporabljajo elektriko za sekundarne funkcije, so zajete v obsegu tega standarda. Dodatne zahteve za igrače, ki vsebujejo laserje in svetleče diode, so podane v dodatku E. Da so v skladu s tem standardom, morajo biti električne igrače prav tako v skladu z ISO 8124-1, saj zajema nevarnosti, drugačne od tistih, ki lahko nastanejo zaradi uporabe elektrike.

p 5.15 Replace by:

5.15 Before starting the tests, the toy is preconditioned by subjecting it to the following tests of EN 71-1,

the batteries in position:

– Drop test – for toys having a mass less than 4,5 kg including batteries, irrespective of the age group;

– Static strength test – for sit-on or stand-on toys;
– Dynamic strength test – for wheeled ride-on toys;

– Tension test – for all toys; however, the force being 70 N ± 2 N independent of the dimensions and

applicable independent of age group;

– Tension test for seams and materials – for toys having textile or other flexible materials covering

batteries or other electrical parts.

NOTE Compliance with EN 71-1 is not checked after the preconditioning. However, the security of the battery compartment cover

is checked (see 14.6 and 14.7).

p Replace the first new paragraph added by the following:

If the control consists only of positive temperature co-efficient (PTC) resistors, negative temperature co-

efficient (NTC) resistors or voltage dependent resistors (VDRs) they are not short-circuited if they are

used within their manufacturers declared specification.

EN 60825-1:1993 and its amendments are superseded by EN 60825-1:2007, which is based on IEC 60825-1:2007 and by

EN 62471:2008, which is based on IEC 62471:2006. However, for LEDs in toys a product standard based on ICNIRP

Recommendation is in preparation and therefore EN 60825-1:1993 and its amendments will have to be used until this standard for

LEDs in toys is implemented.

Annex ZZ
Clauses of this European Standard addressing essential requirements or other
provisions of EU Directives

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

Commission and the European Free Trade Association to provide a means of conforming to the Essential

Requirements of New Approach Directive 2009/48/EC with respect to the electrical safety of electrical

toys; specifically, to Annex II, Section IV ‘Electrical properties’ with the exception of toys for connection to

a computer, console, monitor screen or other audio-video equipment (point 2) and toys of such a

construction that the requirements for Functional Safety are necessary (point 7).

Once this European Standard is cited in the Official Journal of the European Union under that Directive,

compliance with this standard confers, within the limits of the scope of this European Standard, a

presumption of conformity with the corresponding Essential Requirements of that Directive and

associated EFTA regulations.

WARNING: Other requirements and other EC Directives may be applicable to the products falling within

the scope of this standard.

– 2 – 62115 Amend. 2 Ó IEC:2010

This amendment has been prepared by IEC technical committee 61: Safety of household and

similar electrical appliances.
The text of this amendment is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
61/4051/FDIS 61/4079/RVD

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

on voting indicated in the above table.

The committee has decided that the contents of this amendment and the base publication will

remain unchanged until the stability date indicated on the IEC web site under

"http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to the specific publication. At this date, the

publication will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
• replaced by a revised edition, or
• amended.

NOTE 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 publication.


In the differences existing in some countries for 14.2, delete ", except Germany".
