Scope

ISO 11148-2:2011 specifies safety requirements for hand-held non-electric power tools without rotation (hereinafter "cutting-off and crimping power tools") intended for cutting off wires, cables, etc., and for crimping, for instance connectors to cable ends. The cutting-off and crimping power tools can be powered by compressed air, hydraulic fluid or internal combustion engines and are intended to be used by one operator and supported by the operator's hand or hands, with or without a suspension, e.g. a balancer.
ISO 11148-2:2011 is applicable to crimping tools without a yoke, cutters, cutting-off tools, cutting pliers and crimping pliers.
ISO 11148-2:2011 is not applicable to special requirements and modifications of cutting-off and crimping power tools for the purpose of mounting them in fixtures, and it is not applicable to "double acting hydraulic rescue tools for fire and rescue service use".
ISO 11148-2:2011 deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations or hazardous events relevant to cutting-off and crimping power tools when they are used as intended and under conditions of misuse which are reasonably foreseeable by the manufacturer, with the exception of the use of cutting-off and crimping power tools in potentially explosive atmospheres.
