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 60432-3 has been prepared by subcommittee 34A: Lamps, of IEC

technical committee 34: Lamps and related equipment.

This second edition of IEC 60432-3 cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2002,

Amendment 1 (2005) and Amendment 2 (2008). The document 34A/1567/FDIS, circulated to

the National Committees as Amendment 3, led to the publication of this new edition.

The main changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows:

– adapting the cold fill pressure requirements and tests for self-shielded lamps to the state of

the technology,

– introduction of requirements to fully cover photobiological safety according to IEC 62471.

---------------------- Page: 10 ----------------------

The text of this standard is based on the first edition, its Amendments 1 and 2, and the

following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
34A/1567/FDIS 34A/1585/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.

A list of all the parts in the IEC 60432 series, published under the general title Incandescent

lamps – Safety specifications can be found on the IEC website.

The committee has decided that the contents of the base publication and its amendments will

remain unchanged until the maintenance result 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.

In general, compliance is checked by carrying out all the relevant tests specified in this

standard. For the purposes of this standard, the voltage designations shown in IEC 60357

apply.
2.2 Marking
2.2.1 Lamp marking
The following information shall be legibly and durably marked on the lamps:

– mark of origin (this may take the form of a trademark, the manufacturer's name, the brand

name or the name of the responsible vendor);
– rated wattage (marked “W” or “watts”);

– rated voltage or rated voltage range (marked “V” or “volts”), or for airfield lamps the rated

current (marked “A”).

The rated voltage marking for lamps intended for use on United Kingdom supply voltages may

be “240 volts” or “240 V”.

NOTE The United Kingdom implementation of 230 V (European harmonization process) allows supply voltages to

remain at 240 V.
Compliance is checked on unused lamps as follows:
– presence and legibility by visual inspection;
– durability by applying the following test.

The area of the marking on the lamp shall be rubbed by hand with a smooth cloth, moistened

with water, for a period of 15 s.
After this test, the marking shall still be legible.
2.2.2 Additional information and marking
If applicable, the following information shall be given.

a) Lamps shall be supplied with an appropriate cautionary notice indicating the need of a

protective shield to be fitted to the luminaire. Alternatively the immediate lamp wrapping or

container may be marked with the corresponding symbol as shown in Clause A.1.

NOTE In North America, a suitable cautionary notice is required. Use of the symbol is optional.

b) For self-shielded lamps (not needing luminaire shielding), the immediate lamp wrapping or

container shall be marked with the symbol as shown in Clause A.2.
NOTE 1 This does not apply to lamps covered by IEC 60432-2.
NOTE 2 In North America, a written notice may be used in place of this symbol.

c) For dichroic-coated reflector lamps, the immediate lamp wrapping or container shall be

marked with the symbol as shown in Clause A.3.
NOTE This symbol is not required in North America.

d) Double-capped lamps, with rated voltages 50 V – 250 V, shall be supplied with a cautionary

notice or symbol as shown in Clause A.4 indicating that the luminaire shall be disconnected

from the power supply before insertion or withdrawal of the lamp.

NOTE 1 In the USA, special package marking is required regarding the use of 500 W double-capped halogen

lamps in residential indoor luminaires.

NOTE 2 In North America, a suitable cautionary notice is required. Use of the symbo
