This harmonized standard was prepared by the Association of Standardization and Certification, (ANCE), CSA Group and Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL). The efforts and support of the Technical Harmonization Committee for Electrical Wires and Cables, of the Council on the Harmonization of Electrotechnical Standards of the Nations of the Americas (CANENA), are gratefully acknowledged.
This standard is considered suitable for use for conformity assessment within the stated scope of the standard.
The present Mexican Standard was developed by the CT 20 Conductores from the Comite de Normalizacion de la Asociacion de Normalizacion y Certificacion, A.C., CONANCE, with the collaboration of the SC 20B Conductores para Baja Tensión.
This standard was reviewed by the CSA Integrated Committee on Fixed Installation Wires and Cable, under the jurisdiction of the CSA Technical Committee on Wiring Products and the CSA Strategic Steering Committee on Requirements for Electrical Safety, and has been formally approved by the CSA Technical Committee. This standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.

This Standard specifies the requirements for 600 V single-conductor, thermoplastic-insulated wires and cables, for use as follows:
a) In Canada, in accordance with CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code (CE Code), Part I;
b) In Mexico, in accordance with NOM-001-SEDE, Standard for Electrical Installations; and
c) In the United States, in accordance with ANSI/NFPA 70, National Electrical Code (NEC).
Note: See Annex A for the complete list of wire types and voltage ratings covered by this Standard and the specific electrical codes for which they are intended.
This Standard also specifies the requirements for submersible-pump cables, with or without jackets (see Section 7). No type-letter designations are assigned to these cables.
In Mexico, the requirements for multiple-conductor thermoplastic-insulated and -jacketed cables rated 600 V are specified in Annex B.
In Canada and the United States, requirements for multiple-conductor thermoplastic-insulated and -jacketed cables are covered in other standards.
Products for which this Standard provides requirements might have applications not described in the electrical codes listed in Clause 1.1.
