IEC 60335 Class B

Standard for Home Appliances

Since 2007 all home appliances sold in Europe must comply with both IEC 60335 and IEC 60730 standards. The majority of appliances will fall into this Class B category. In order to achieve this for your products, certified self tests must be completed by the microcontroller within the appliance to prove that both it and its surrounding parts are still running correctly.

Hitex can assist you to get the certification with:

  • Class B consulting
  • Definition of the certification concept
  • Integration of existing self test libraries to your application
  • Design and test of self test libraries (if there are no existing ones for your selected microcontroller)
  • Unit testing of your application to achieve certification
  • Assistance during the certification process
