The Future of HVACR Electrical Safety Compliance - Everything you Need to Know
Though not required until December 1, 2022, UL 60335-2-40 has been deemed “the future of HVACR electrical safety compliance” and is currently active for products to be tested against and certified. If your product is ready to meet the new criteria and more rigorous requirements of IEC 60335-2-40 (compared to UL 1995), Intertek is your Total Quality Assurance provider to help you get to market quickly. The standard includes in its scope matched and packaged air conditioners/heat pumps (no standalone systems), liquid chillers and hydronic fan coil units, hot water heat pumps, dehumidifiers, and supplemental heaters (designed as part of an appliance package).
If you’re interested in a gap analysis to determine what is still needed to meet the new requirements, we can provide that service, along with any potential compliance training and R&D testing your team may need. The standard is harmonized across global markets with UL 60335-2-40, CSA 60335-2-40, and IEC 60335-2-40 available, so gaining an understanding of global requirements will help you save time and costs in your compliance program overall.
