Scope of this Standard

This National Standard applies to the labelling requirements for all electrical appliances that are intended for sale (where such units are displayed, offered for sale or are at the point of sale) in Trinidad and Tobago. It applies to appliances intended for use at the following nominal supply voltages: i. 115 volts, with a relative tolerance of 6 %; or ii. 230 volts, with a relative tolerance of 6 %. NOTE These nominal supply voltages have been declared by the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) in their publication entitled (Wiring for Light and Power). The Electricity Supply Rules made under Section 15 of the Electricity (Inspection) Act Chapter 54:72 provides for variations of six percent above or below the declared voltages. This standard also specifies labelling requirements for the packaging of electrical appliances. This standard does not apply to appliances designed exclusively for industrial purposes or appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas).
