All technical contents of this standard are compulsory.
This standard replaces GB 19517-2004 "National Safety Technical Code for Electric Equipment".
Compared with GB 19517-2004, the main differences of this standard are as follows. ?€? In Application Scope of 1.1 General Provisions, the lower limit value 50V of AC voltage and lower limit value 75V of DC voltage of electrical equipment are deleted, so it makes this standard also applicable to electric product of extra-low voltage range;
?€? In Application Scope of 1.1 General Provisions, "...below 1500V AC rated voltage," is changed into "...below 1200V AC rated voltage,";
?€? "Validity period of inspection report is 12 months" in 3.3.2 is deleted; ?€? In Appendix A, newly add the relevant national standards on top of the previous 15 professional compliance standards; add the national standards relevant to 4 professions such as small fuses, industrial electric heating equipment, electrical electronic environment (fire hazard test), and low voltage surge protector; Correspondingly make the amendment to the previously-included professional standards; the compliance standards in Appendix A are increased to 331 from previous 164;
?€? Appendix B is compiled according to the requirements of GB/T 1.1. And the English that corresponds to the terms and vocabulary.
The standards listed in Appendix A are the un-dated compliance standards to meet the necessary safety element of electrical equipment and various professional products; it is normative. Appendix B is also normative.
This standard was proposed by China Electrical Equipment Industry Association. This standard shall be under the jurisdiction of National Technical Committee on Electric Safety of Standardization Administration of China (SAC/TC 25).

The previous edition replaced by this standard is.
?€? GB 19517-2004.
The establishment of this standard is aimed to achieve optimum balance of overall safety level among people, environment and product; make the design, manufacturing, sales and application of electrical equipment to reduce the risk to life, health and property damage to maximum extent; and reach acceptable level.
The professional safety standards of various electric products must comply with this standard. And combine the necessary safety elements in technical codes WITH the characteristic of various electric products to supplement the corresponding data, provisions and special requirements.
This standard specifies the general common safety requirements of electrical equipment. The safety requirements of specific products are specified by the product standards. Both shall be used concurrently.
This standard is consisted of main text of which the essential safety elements are the technical body AND normative Appendix A which lists out various compliance standards. The relation of the main text and normative Appendix A is the relation of requirements versus the compliance and being recognized.
The electrotechnical materials such as conductor materials, insulating materials, flexible cables and flexible wires are important parts of safety essential elements. The electrotechnical material standards meeting above provisions are also listed in normative Appendix A. This standard only provides the common principle requirements to the safety essential elements such as data, limit or permissible value, technical requirements and precautionary measures. The specific and detail requirements and measures are supplemented and enhanced in compliance standards listed in normative Appendix A.
The test methods, inspection rules and methods in essential safety elements are specified by the compliance standards listed in normative Appendix A.
According to actual demand, the compliance standards listed in normative Appendix A may be increased and decreased if it is scientific, appropriate and reasonable. Under the condition that it does not compromise the overall level of the product safety, the compliance standards are not necessary to satisfy all of the essential safety elements of this standard; it may be supplemented or modified.
National Safety Technical Code for Electric Equipment
1 General Provisions
1.1 This standard is applicable to all kinds of electrical equipment - below 1200V AC rated voltage and below 1500V DC rated voltage. These electrical equipment include. ?€? The electrical equipment that are used and contacted by unskilled persons according to design purpose or directly hand-held operated by users;
?€? The electrical equipment that are used at electrical workplace or closed electrical workplace and mainly or completely operated by professional or basically-trained persons. 1.2 The electrical equipment designed, manufactured, sold and used in China must be in accordance with this standard. The implementation of the export products may be in accordance with the contract provisions.
1.3 This standard specifies the general safety technical requirements of electrical equipment during design, manufacture, sales and application. It is used for.
?€? Structure foundation of safety technical contents of all kinds of electric products; ?€? For the electric products without professional safety standard, the safety level shall be preliminarily evaluated;
?€? Technical foundation for design, manufacture, sales and application of electrical equipment.
1.4 If other laws and regulations specify otherwise safety requirements for electrical equipment, the electrical equipment shall also meet the corresponding requirements. The safety technical requirements of electrical equipment specified in this standard shall be specifically detailed in the professional standards of electrical equipment, and shall be specified according to the corresponding demonstration, verification and supplementary technical data. 1.5 This standard is not applicable to.
?€? The materials and auxiliary materials of electrical equipment that are not specified in this standard;
?€? The primary products or semi-finished products that are incapable of independent operation; ?€? The electrical equipment used for medical treatment purpose;
