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 60364-7-713 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 64:

Electrical installations and protection against electric shock.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition, published in 1996, and constitutes

a technical revision.

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

edition:

• a new introduction added in accordance with the new standard Parts 700 introduction;

• changes to the scope have been made. The requirements of Part 7-713 now apply to

electrical equipment of furniture connected to a supply with a nominal voltage U not

exceeding 230 V and a total load current not exceeding 32 A;

• the previous edition only covered single phase 16 A supplies; this new edition covers

three-phase 32 A supplies;
---------------------- Page: 4 ----------------------
60364-7-713 © IEC:2013 – 3 –

• this new edition makes reference to Part 4-41 additional protection and requires that the

fixed circuit is protected by an RCD with a rated residual operating current not exceeding

30 mA;
• IEC cable standards have been updated;

• requirements covered by the general rules, e.g. luminaire requirements, have been

removed.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
64/1873/FDIS 64/1880/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 parts in the IEC 60364 series, under the general title Low-voltage electrical

installations, can be found on the IEC website.

The reader’s attention is drawn to the fact that Annex A lists all of the “in-some-

country” clauses on differing practices of a less permanent nature relating to the

subject of this standard.

The committee has decided that the contents of this publication will remain unchanged until

the stability date indicated on the IEC website 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.

INTRODUCTION

For the purpose of this part (IEC 60364-7-713), the requirements of the general parts 1 to 6 of

IEC 60364 apply.

The IEC 60364-7-7XX parts of IEC 60364 contain particular requirements for special

installations or locations which are based on the requirements of the general parts of

IEC 60364 (IEC 60364-1 to IEC 60364-6). These IEC 60364-7-7XX parts are considered in

conjunction with the requirements of the general parts.

The particular requirements of this part of IEC 60364 supplement, modify or replace certain of

the requirements of the general parts of IEC 60364 being valid at the time of publication of

this part. The absence of reference to a part or a clause of a general part means that the

corresponding clauses of the currently valid general part are applicable (undated reference).

Requirements of other 7XX parts being relevant for installations covered by this part also

apply. This part may therefore also supplement, modify or replace certain of these

requirements valid at the time of its publication.

The clause numbering of this part follows the pattern and corresponding references of

IEC 60364. The numbers following the particular number of this part are those of the

corresponding parts, or clauses of the other parts of the IEC 60364 series, valid at the time of

publication of this part, as indicated in the normative references of this document (dated

reference).

If requirements or explanations additional to those of the other parts of the IEC 60364 series

are needed, the numbering of such items appears as 713.101, 713.102, 713.103 etc.

NOTE In the case where new or amended general parts with modified numbering were published after this part

was issued, the clause numbers referring to a general part in this 713 part may no longer align with the latest

edition of the general part. Dated references should therefore be observed.

713.1 Scope

The particular requirements of this part of IEC 60364 apply to the wiring system of furniture

(and similar fitments) which is connected to the electrical installation.

Examples are beds, cupboards, desks and shop display cases, in which electrical equipment

such as luminaires, installation couplers according to IEC 61535, socket-outlets, switching

devices and wiring systems are installed.

The requirements of this part apply to all kinds of furniture, regardless of the connection to the

electrical installation of the building, as long as the furniture together with its electrical

installation is not the subject of another IEC publication.

The requirements of this part apply to electrical equipment of furniture connected to a supply

with a nominal voltage U not exceeding 230 V and a total load current not exceeding 32 A.

These requirements do not apply to electrical appliances and equipment specifically designed

for installation in furniture and which are the subject of other IEC standards, for example

radios, TV receivers, refrigerators and laboratory tables, installed in the furniture and ready

for connection to the electrical installations of buildings via plugs and socket-outlets. For

special locations, other specific requirements may apply, for example see IEC 60364-7-701.
