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



Reference EN 60695-1-1:2000
Title Fire hazard testing - Part 1-1: Guidance for assessing the fire hazard of electrotechnical products - General guidelines
Project Number 13311
Abstract/Scope Provides guidance for assessing the fire hazard of electrotechnical products and for the resulting development of fire hazard testing as related directly to harm to people, animals or property. Products, as defined in this standard, relate to materials, components or complete end-use products. Contains a new informative Annex with an example of the fire hazard assessment technique. The example is based on a hypothetical installation of rigid plastic conduit and quantifies the contribution of it to the total fire hazard in an actual fire scenario. 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Date of withdrawal (dow) latest date by which national standards conflicting with an EN (and HD for CENELEC) have to be withdrawn

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