International Standards and Conformity Assessment for all electrical, electronic and related technologies



Reference EN 60695-10-3:2002
Title Fire hazard testing - Part 10-3: Abnormal heat - Mould stress relief distortion test
Project Number 14288
Abstract/Scope Specifies the mould stress relief distortion test as a test method for use by product committees. It is applicable to electrotechnical equipment including parts made from polymeric materials. This test is intended to simulate the effects caused by the relieving of moulding stresses by conditioning the product or part at a temperature higher than the maximum normal operating temperature and observing the nature of the resulting changes. 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Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn
