This standard specifies the safety requirements in order to ensure personal safety from electric shock, protection from extreme heat and fire, and dependable operation.

This standard does not apply to multi-unit electric stoves that have more than one heating unit.

A laboratory shall be adequately maintained, in which the various tests are to be performed according to the methods specified in the standard.


Marking shall be done as per IS 302(Part 2/Sec 202). The standard mark (ISI Mark) may also be applied to the product. Under the product certification scheme, the Bureau of Indian Standards grants BIS certificates to use the standard mark (ISI Mark) on goods. The certificate can only be issued if the product meets the requirements of Indian standards. The manufacturer must obtain a BIS license for electric stoves from the Bureau of Indian Standards to use a standard mark (ISI Mark).
