International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 62552:2013
Title Household refrigerating appliances - Characteristics and test methods
Project Number 21652
Abstract/Scope Specifies the essential characteristics of household refrigerating appliances, factory-assembled and cooled by internal natural convection or forced air circulation, and establishes test methods for checking the characteristics. These are type tests, and because of this, when verification of the performance of a refrigerating appliance of a given type in relation to this standard is necessary, it is preferable, wherever practicable, that all the tests specified be applied to a single unit. The tests can also be made individually for the study of a particular characteristic. The contents of the corrigendum of March 2008 have been included in this copy.
