    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies a method of test for the resistance to vertical flame propagation for a single vertical electrical insulated conductor or cable, or optical cable under fire conditions.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies the test apparatus and procedure for testing the resistance to vertical flame propagation for a single vertical electrical insulated conductor or cable, or optical fibre cable, under fire conditions. It also specifies a test procedure for assessment of falling flaming droplets/particles when a single vertical electrical insulated conductor or cable, or optical fibre cable, is subjected to defined fire conditions.
