IEC 60704-3:2019 is available as IEC 60704-3:2019 RLV which contains the International Standard and its Redline version, showing all changes of the technical content compared to the previous edition.
IEC 60704-3:2019 describes procedures for determining and verifying the declared values of the noise emitted by household and similar appliances. It applies to all categories of household and similar electrical appliances covered by IEC 60704-1 and all parts of IEC 60704-2, which include particular requirements for special categories of appliances. It applies to appliances being produced in quantity, such as in batches, series or lots, which are manufactured to the same technical specification and characterized by the same declared value of noise emission. This part of IEC 60704:
– considers the term "declaration" to include all means for providing information on the noise emission values to potential users (consumers) of the appliances; this includes labels, brochures, advertisements, commercial and technical information papers, etc.;
– considers the declaration for appliances manufactured by mass production;
– specifies a simple statistical method for verifying the declared values by investigating a sample of only three appliances.
This International Standard is to be used in conjunction with IEC 60704-1:2010 and the latest edition of IEC 60704-2 (all parts).
This third edition cancels and replaces the second edition published in 2006. This edition constitutes a technical revision. It includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) in Annex A, standard deviations that are now specified for various appliance categories in the parts of IEC 60704-2 have been excluded from Table A.1;
b) furthermore, this edition makes reference to new standards and is implementing ISO/IEC Directives, Part 2 in a more accurate manner.

IEC 60879:2019 specifies the performance-measuring methods of comfort fans and regulators for household and similar purposes, including conventional fans, tower fans and bladeless fans, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single-phase fans and 480 V for other fans, and their rated power input being less than 125 W.
According to the testing method, the comfort fans are classified into two groups:
– pedestal fans, table fans, wall fans, louvre fans, tower fans, bladeless fans;
– ceiling fans.
Wherever applicable, the term "fan" used in this document includes its associated regulator, if any.
This document does not apply to:
– safety of electric fans for household and similar purposes (IEC 60335-2-80);
– performance of ventilating fans (IEC 60665);
– electromagnetic compatibility of fans (CISPR 14-1 and CISPR 14-2, IEC 61000-3-2, IEC 61000-3-3).
This second edition cancels and replaces the first edition published in 1986. This edition constitutes a technical revision.
This edition includes the following significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition:
a) the definitions of fans have been revised;
b) the test methods for the different types of fans have been revised to allow modern test instrumentation to be used;
c) acoustic noise measurement and standby power measurement methods have been introduced.
