SWITCHES FOR APPLIANCES –
Part 2-6: Particular requirements for switches used

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 61058-2-6 has been prepared by subcommittee 23J: Switches for

appliances, of IEC technical committee 23: Electrical accessories.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2016. It constitutes a

technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant change with respect to the previous edition:

Overall format to support IEC 61058-1, IEC 61058-1-1 and IEC 61058-1-2.

The text of this International Standard is based on the following documents:
FDIS Report on voting
3J/450/FDIS 23J/452/RVD

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

the report on voting indicated in the above table.

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

This document is to be used in conjunction with IEC 61058-1:2016.

This document supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 61058-1, so as to

convert that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements for switches used in

electric motor-operated hand-held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery.

When a particular subclause of IEC 61058-1 is not mentioned in this document, that

subclause applies as far as reasonable. Where this document states "addition", "modification"

or "replacement", the relevant text of IEC 61058-1 is to be adapted accordingly.
In this standard:
1) the following print types are used:
• requirements proper: in roman type;
• test specifications: in italic type;
• notes/explanatory matter: in small roman type.

2) subclauses, notes, figures and tables which are additional to those in IEC 61058-1 are

numbered starting from 101.

A list of all the parts in the IEC 61058 series, under the general title Switches for appliances,

can be found on the IEC website.

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

stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to

the specific document. At this date, the document will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,

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 61058-2-6 has been prepared by subcommittee 23J: Switches for

appliances, of IEC technical committee 23: Electrical accessories.

This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 2016. It constitutes a

technical revision.

This edition includes the following significant change with respect to the previous edition:

Overall format to support IEC 61058-1, IEC 61058-1-1 and IEC 61058-1-2.

Full information on the voting for the approval of this International Standard can be found in

the report on voting indicated in the above table.

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

This document is to be used in conjunction with IEC 61058-1:2016.

This document supplements or modifies the corresponding clauses in IEC 61058-1, so as to

convert that publication into the IEC standard: Particular requirements for switches used in

electric motor-operated hand-held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery.

When a particular subclause of IEC 61058-1 is not mentioned in this document, that

subclause applies as far as reasonable. Where this document states "addition", "modification"

or "replacement", the relevant text of IEC 61058-1 is to be adapted accordingly.
In this standard:
1) the following print types are used:
• requirements proper: in roman type;
• test specifications: in italic type;
• notes/explanatory matter: in small roman type.

2) subclauses, notes, figures and tables which are additional to those in IEC 61058-1 are

numbered starting from 101.

A list of all the parts in the IEC 61058 series, under the general title Switches for appliances,

can be found on the IEC website.

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

stability date indicated on the IEC website under "http://webstore.iec.ch" in the data related to

the specific document. At this date, the document will be
• reconfirmed,
• withdrawn,
