Full Description


This is the third edition of CSA C22.2 No. 60335-2-32, Household and similar electrical appliances — Safety — Part 2-32: Particular requirements for massage appliances, which is an adoption, with Canadian deviations, of the identically titled IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) Standard 60335-2-32 (fifth edition, 2019-09). It supersedes the previous edition, published in 2001 as CAN/CSA-E60335-2-32 (adopted IEC 335-2-32:1993, including Amendment 1:1999). It is one in a series of Standards issued by CSA Group under Part II of the Canadian Electrical Code.

This Standard is intended to be used in conjunction with CAN/CSA-C22.2 No. 60335-1:16, Household and similar electrical appliances — Safety — Part 1: General requirements (adopted IEC 60335-1:2010+ A1:2013, with Canadian deviations).

This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.


This International Standard deals with the safety of electric massage appliances for household and similar purposes, their rated voltage being not more than 250 V for single phase appliances and 480 V for other appliances.

NOTE 101 Examples of appliances within the scope of this standard are
  • foot massagers;
  • water filled foot massagers;
  • hand-held massagers;
  • massage beds;
  • massage belts;
  • massage chairs;
  • massage pads.
Appliances not intended for normal household use but that nevertheless may be a source of danger to the public, such as appliances intended to be used by laymen in shops, in light industry and on farms, are within the scope of this standard.

As far as is practicable, this standard deals with the common hazards presented by appliances that are encountered by all persons in and around the home. However, in general, it does not take into account
  • persons (including children) whose physical, sensory or mental capabilities; or lack of experience and knowledge prevents them from using the appliance safely without supervision or instruction;
  • children playing with the appliance.
NOTE 102 Attention is drawn to the fact that
  • for appliances intended to be used in vehicles or on board ships or aircraft, additional requirements can be necessary;
  • in many countries additional requirements are specified by the national health authorities, the national authorities responsible for the protection of labour and similar authorities.
NOTE 103 This standard does not apply to
  • appliances intended exclusively for industrial purposes;
  • appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, such as the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (dust, vapour or gas);
  • electric foot care appliances that do not contain motors and other electric appliances for the care of skin or hair (IEC 60335-2-23)
  • electric appliances for beauty care of persons and intended for household, commercial and similar purposes (IEC 60335-2-115)
