  • SCOPE

    1 Scope

    1.1 These requirements cover household and commercial air fresheners and deodorizers, rated 250 volts or less for use in ordinary locations in accordance with the National Electrical Code, ANSI/NFPA 70.

    1.2 These requirements cover air fresheners and deodorizers for deodorizing or scenting air, or both, by the dispersal of chemicals, fragrances, or both. Air fresheners and deodorizers employing heating elements, electronic circuits, motor-operated fans (or a combination thereof), and mechanical filters are also covered by these requirements.

    1.3 These requirements are intended to evaluate these appliances with respect to the risk of fire, electric shock, injury to persons, and explosiveness of atmosphere. The physiological effects of the operation of these appliances, beneficial or otherwise, are not covered by this Standard. The assigned ratings do not cover other potential risks, including the physiological effects of these appliances, in any form, nor do they indicate the efficiency or effectiveness of the intended uses of these appliances.

    1.4 These requirements do not cover insect-repellent dispensers, air sterilizing appliances, air cleaning products, air filters, room ionizers, smoke scrubbers, or ultraviolet filters.

    1.5 These requirements do not cover permanently-connected appliances.

    1.6 These requirements do not cover direct plug-in appliances with open reservoirs for the addition of either a liquid or a substance that when heated becomes a liquid.

    1.7 Direct plug-in air fresheners and deodorizers provided with illumination shall be additionally evaluated to the Standard for Direct Plug-In Nightlights, UL 1786.

    1.8 Electric toys are covered by the Standard for Electric Toys, UL 696.

    1.9 Electric toy transformers are covered by the Standard for Toy Transformers, UL 697.
