Generally, the infrared heaters sold in the UK require the following certification or equivalent:
- EN 60335-1:2012 / EN60335-2-30 (Safety of Electrical Appliances)
- EN55014 1 + 2 / EN61003-2 / EN61003-3 (EMC)

Ensuring Quality & Regulation
As the infrared heating industry develops and grows in the UK we are finding more and more poor quality and potentially dangerous products entering the market.
The Infrared Heating Trade Association is here to ensure accountability and quality for those manufacturing and those selling infrared heating products.
All manufacturers who are members of the association have demonstrated that their products are manufactured in accordance with all the relevant UK guidelines.
Reseller members sell only infrared heating fully certified to UK regulations and standards.
