according to clause 1 and addition:
Burners according to this standard are machines or components covered by the scope of EU directive 98/37/EC.

This standard together with Annex L deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events relevant to burners, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer.
Any residual hazards are identified and communicated to the user where appropriate.
Depending on the installation situation additional requirements may apply to cover the risks arising from traffic, wind, earthquake loading and external fire.
This standard specifies the requirements to be met by the manufacturer to ensure the safety of persons and property during commissioning, start-up, operation, shut-down and maintenance, as well as in the event of foreseeable faults or malfunctions. It specifies the safety requirements at stages in the life of the equipment, and its design, ordering, construction and use.
This document is not applicable to burners which are manufactured before the date of publication of this document by CEN.
