What is CSA C22.1?

CSA C22.1 Canadian Electrical Code, Part I, abbreviated as CE Code, is known as the "Canadian Electrical Code" in Chinese. It is applicable to electrical engineering and electrical drive equipment of all voltages, aiming to establish safety standards for the installation and maintenance of electrical equipment, considering the prevention of fire and shock hazards, including the prevention of electric shock, thermal effects, overcurrent, fault current, and overvoltage.

 

What is the relationship between CSA C22.1 and terminal standards?

CSA C22.1 will reference standards for other end product categories, such as CSA C22.2 NO. 46 Electric air heaters, CSA C22.2 NO. 64 Household Cooking and liquid heating appliances, etc.

How can electric kettle products obtain test reports that comply with CSA C22.1?

On September 1, 2023, the Amazon Canada website issued a notice requiring online electric kettle listings to provide documents that comply with CSA C22.1. In addition to traditional electric kettles, this policy also applies to any product that heats water in equipment that may contain lead, such as percolation coffee pots, stove style espresso machines, and mocha pots that do not have a "kettle" label.
For electric kettle products, suppliers should choose standard CSA C22.2 NO. 64 or CSA C22.2 NO. 60335-2-15 to obtain test reports. Because these two standards collaborate with CSA C22.1, having test reports can prove that the product meets CSA C22.1.
