Full Description


This is the harmonized CSA Group and UL standard for Switches for Appliances – Part 2-6: Particular Requirements for Switches Used In Electric Motor-Operated Hand-Held Tools, Transportable Tools and Lawn and Garden Machinery. It is the first edition of CSA C22.2 No. 61058-2-6, and the first edition of UL 61058-2-6.

This harmonized standard is based on IEC Publication 61058-2-6: second edition Switches for appliances – Part 2-6: Particular requirements for switches used in electric motor-operated hand-held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery, issued November 2018. IEC 61058-2-6 is copyrighted by the IEC.

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 part of IEC 61058 is a subset based on IEC 61058-1. The clauses outlined below are intended to address the specific requirements for switches incorporated into or integrated with electric motor-operated hand-held tools, transportable tools and lawn and garden machinery.

This document is intended for switches with an ambient temperature up to and including 55 °C. Switches tested according to IEC 61058-1 are considered to comply with this document and additional testing is not required provided ratings, loads, and endurance are correct.

NOTE This document takes into account the fact that tests are conducted as part of the end-product evaluation (e.g. products tested according to the IEC 60745 and IEC 62841 series, and lawn and gardening equipment tested according to the IEC 60335 series), and that tests are not conducted on the component switch.
