Title Fire hazard testing - Part 1-40: Guidance for assessing the fire hazard of electrotechnical products - Insulating liquids
Project Number 24475
Abstract/Scope Provides guidance on the minimization of fire hazard arising from the use of electrical insulating liquids to a) electrotechnical equipment and systems, b) people, building structures and their contents. As insulating liquids are always part of an insulating system, the fire hazard of the complete system must also be assessed. Has the status of a basic safety publication in accordance with IEC Guide 104.

(1) Date of ratification (dor) date when the Technical Board notes the approval of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), from which time the standard may be said to be approved

(2) Date of availability (dav) date when the definitive text in the official language versions of an approved CEN/CENELEC publication is distributed by the Central Secretariat

(3) Date of announcement (doa) latest date by which the existence of an EN (and HD for CENELEC), a TS or a CWA has to be announced at national level

(4) Date of publication (dop) latest date by which an EN has to be implemented at national level by publication of an identical national standard or by endorsement

(5) Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
