IEC 62841 addresses the safety of electric, motor-operated, or magnetically driven tools with provisions for hand-held tools, transportable tools, and lawn and garden machinery. Recent changes to technical requirements may require manufacturers to retest or significantly change the design of products. Each product category has various existing IEC, UL, CSA or EN standards that may be superseded by a standard harmonized with IEC 62841, with regional differences, and deadlines ranging from 2019 to 2022.

Intertek’s fact sheet gives an overview of the standard, recent changes, upcoming deadlines, and recommended next steps for manufacturers.
