This National Standard specifies labelling requirements for all electrical appliances produced, imported or used in Trinidad and Tobago. It specifies labelling information to be placed on the appliances as well as information to be placed on the packaging for such appliances.
This standard applies to appliances intended for use at either of the following nominal supply voltages:
- 115 volts, with a relative tolerance of ± 6 %; or
- 230 volts, with a relative tolerance of ± 6 %.
NOTE: These nominal supply voltages have been declared by the Trinidad and Tobago Electricity Commission (T&TEC) in their publication entitled “Wiring for Light and Power”. The Electricity Supply Rules made under Section 15 of the Electricity (Inspection) Act Chapter 54:72 provides for variations of six percent above or below the declared voltages.
This standard does not apply to appliances designed exclusively for industrial purposes or appliances intended to be used in locations where special conditions prevail, e.g. the presence of a corrosive or explosive atmosphere (caused by dust, vapour or gas).
