ISO 6469-2:2009 specifies requirements for operational safety means and protection against failures related to hazards specific to electrically propelled road vehicles, including battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), fuel-cell vehicles (FCVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs), for the protection of persons inside and outside the vehicle and the vehicle environment.
ISO 6469-2:2009 does not apply to motorcycles and vehicles not primarily intended as road vehicles, such as material handling trucks or fork-lift trucks.
Requirements related to internal combustion engine (ICE) systems of HEVs are not covered in ISO 6469-2:2009.
ISO 6469-2:2009 applies only if the maximum working voltage of the on-board electrical propulsion system is lower than the upper voltage class B limit.
ISO 6469-2:2009 does not provide comprehensive safety information for manufacturing, maintenance and repair personnel.
