Reference EN 50267-2-1:1998
Title Common test methods for cables under fire conditions - Tests on gases evolved during combustion of materials from cables - Part 2-1: Procedures - Determination of the amount of halogen acid gas
Project Number 6701
Abstract/Scope EN 50267-2-1 specifies the procedure for the determination of the amount of halogen acid gas, other than hydrofluoric acid, evolved during the combustion of compounds based on halogenated polymers, and compounds containing halogenated additives, taken from cable constructions. For reasons of accuracy this method is not recommended for use where the amount of halogen acid evolved is less than 5mg/g of the sample taken. This method is not suitable for defining comppounds or materials described as zero-halogen or halogen-free. For such compounds or materials, and all compounds or materials containing less than 5 mg/g halogen acid equivalent, it is recommended to use the method specified in EN 50267-2-2

Normative reference (6)  

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of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

(6) This list of normative references is purely indicative. The only official list of normative reference is the list of the published standard.
