Description / Abstract:

These requirements cover portable electric hand lamps rated 125 V, 300 W or less for use in accordance with the National Electrical Code.

These requirements cover incandescent Edison-base portable electric hand lamps of the admedium-, medium-, intermediate- and candelabra-base sizes.

These requirements do not cover portable hand lamps intended for outdoor use, or portable hand lamps for use in hazardous locations or above hazardous locations as defined in the National Electrical Code.

A product that contains features, characteristics, components, materials, or systems new or different from those covered by the requirements in this Standard, and that involves a risk of fire, electric shock, or injury to persons shall be evaluated using the appropriate additional component and end-product requirements as determined necessary to maintain the acceptable level of safety as originally anticipated by the intent of this Standard. A product whose features, characteristics, components, materials, or systems conflict with specific requirements or provisions of this Standard cannot be judged to comply with this Standard. Where considered appropriate, revision of requirements shall be proposed and adopted in conformance with the methods employed for development, revision, and implementation of this Standard.
