Impact Statement: A review of all Listing Reports is necessary to determine which products comply with new/revised requirements and which products will require re-evaluation.

Overview of Changes:

Appliances currently Certified to a previous edition of the subject standard (E335-2-30 or E60335-2-30) are required to comply with the requirements of CAN/CSA- E60335-2-30:13 prior to the effective date.

Specific details of new/revised requirements between CAN/CSA-E60335-2-30:01 and CAN/CSA-E60335-2-30:13 are found in the table below


CSA Standards in the 60335-series consist of one “Part 1” (60335-1) and several Part 2 Standards (E60335-2-XX). Each Part 2 is for a more specific product type and works in conjunction with Part 1 by accepting the content of the clause without change, or by adding to, amending or omitting it. The latest edition of the Part 1 is CAN/CSAC22.2 No. 60335-1-11

If the applicable requirements noted in the table are not described in your report(s), these requirements will need to be confirmed as met and added to your report(s) such as markings, instructions, test results, etc. (as required).

The content in this SUN is based on the CSA Certification Notice for Appliances No. 38 dated July 16, 2014
