Toys using electricity for functions other than the principle function are within the scope of this standard.

If the packaging in which the toy is sold is also intended to be played with, it is considered to be part of the toy. Furthermore, with respect to annex I of the IEC directive concerning the safety of toys, this standard does not apply to a serie of toys described in Note 4 of the Standard.
