27.3 If a detachable part having an earth connection is plugged into another part of the
appliance, the earth connection shall be made before the current-carrying connections are
established. The current-carrying connections shall be separated before the earth connection
when removing the part.
For appliances with supply cords, the arrangement of the terminals, or the length of the
conductors between the cord anchorage and the terminals, shall be such that the currentcarrying
conductors become taut before the earthing conductor if the cord slips out of the cord
Compliance is checked by inspection and by manual test.
14.9 Rewirable portable accessories with earthing contact shall be designed with ample space for slack in the earthing conductor so that, if the strain relief is rendered inoperative, the connection of the earthing conductor is subjected to strain after the connections of the current-carrying conductors and, in case of excessive stress, the earthing conductor will break after the current-carrying conductors.
