Description of Content

In response to the concerns raised by consumers for the performance of kitchen ventilators to reduce cooking oil fume exposure resulted from our traditional cooking style, which is also significantly associated with lung cancer, the Bureau of Standards, Metrology and Inspection (BSMI) proposes to revise the inspection standards for ventilators by adding the requirements for wind quantity as stated in Section 3.7 of CNS 3805, which specifies a minimum performance at 10 m3/min for single blade and 11.6 m3/min for double blades. Labelling of the wing quantity is not required. However, where wind quantity is labelled, the test result shall not be lower than 95 percent of the labelled value.

Relevant Documents

The Commodity Inspection Act; CNS 3805 (1989) Section 3.7 "Wind Quantity".
