This European Standard specifies the construction and or characteristics as well as the requirements and methods of test for the safety and marking of freestanding and built-in domestic cooking appliances burning the combustible gases given in 4.1 according to the categories specified in 4.2, referred to in the text as "appliances".
The appliances covered by this standard are intended to be used by non-expert users in a domestic dwelling.

This European Standard includes requirements covering the electrical safety of equipment incorporated in the appliance that is associated with the use of gas. It does not include requirements covering the electrical safety of electrically-heated component parts or their associated equipment.
For appliances intended to be used in caravans, or motorhomes/mobile homes or on board of ships or aircraft, additional requirements may be necessary.
