Domestic gas cooking appliances – ISO standardisation proposal

gasburners

Standards New Zealand is seeking feedback on an ISO proposal for a new field of technical activity on domestic gas cooking appliances. DIN, the national member body for Germany has proposed this activity.

The scope of the proposed work is standardisation in the field of domestic gas cooking appliances, considering a whole appliance: terminology, classification, constructional and performance characteristics, test methods, and marking. Excluded from this scope are cookstoves covered by the standards being developed by ISO’s technical committee 285.

Standards New Zealand is consulting with key stakeholders in this area to determine New Zealand’s response. To receive a copy of the proposal, for more information, or to submit comments including support for or opposition to the proposal, please email isoadmin@standards.co.nz. Comments received will be used to form a New Zealand position on this proposal. Please provide your comments by Tuesday, 1 April 2014.
