    Significance and Use

    4.1 The user must understand how to operate and maintain the equipment to achieve satisfactory cleaning results. Since the manufacturers are the prime source of this information, it is their responsibility to provide instructions for specific models. Clear, concise, simple (but complete) instructions for the safe use and maintenance will encourage users to read the information and follow proper procedures. This will increase user satisfaction, minimize safety problems, and decrease complaints.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice identifies the information to be provided through the use and care booklet accompanying a particular model of vacuum cleaner.

    1.2 Included is information that the user needs to operate and maintain the vacuum cleaner and the attachments provided in a proper and safe manner.

    1.2.1 Similar information is included for attachments that are sold separately.

    1.3 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
