Portable grill


Germany and Norway, respectively, launched a formal objection in respect to Section 11 ‘Heating’ of standard EN 60335-2-9:2003, including insufficient provisions regarding temperature limits of accessible non-functional surfaces. In particular, the standard allows several exclusions to the temperature limits, resulting in a potential danger of scalding of people and animals.

The Commission together with the majority of experts from Member States agreed with the arguments presented by Germany and Norway. The European Union formulated commission decision (EU) 2017/1357 on July 19, 2017.
